I’m Bonnie, from Melbourne Family Hub

Dear Mums and Dads,

Welcome to the Melbourne Family Hub website!

I am a nanny with over 15 years experience in Melbourne and overseas, caring for children aged newborns to teenagers.

I grew up in Kew, the eldest of four children, and at aged 15 became the local babysitter that everyone wanted. I loved this entry into the workforce – little did I know that I would remain in this field for years to come!

From a very early age, I knew my real passion was working with people, especially children, and I wanted a career that would have a positive impact on others.

I studied a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at La Trobe University and developed a keen interest in Child Psychology. In 2006, during my studies, I was presented with the unique opportunity to nanny for Professional Golfers on the international golfing circuit. I packed my suitcase, jumped on a plane and began my journey as a travelling nanny. I was clueless when it came to ‘birdies’ and ‘eagles’; however my natural talent with children enabled me to become a treasured member of many families across the globe.

Life as a travelling nanny couldn’t last forever, so I returned home and discovered that my reputation as a Nanny had sky-rocketed in my absence. Within a few days I was fully booked to nanny and tutor for Melbourne-based families. In response to a constant stream of requests from parents, I created Melbourne Family Hub, a place where families can find their own “Bonnie”.

As a (now) part-time nanny and the Director of the Melbourne Family Hub team, I look forward to assisting you in your search for the Babysitters, Tutors and Homework Helpers who will make a genuine difference to your family’s life.

When you call Melbourne Family Hub, you will be dealing directly with me. I personally travel around Melbourne to meet, interview and screen the team members we recruit. Whether you’re using Melbourne Family Hub to arrange a babysitter for an evening out, or seek out tutoring for your child, I am here to guide you every step of the way.
