Welcome to Melbourne Family Hub!

I am a born and bred Melburnian Nanny, Babysitter and Tutor.

I grew up in Kew, the eldest of four children, with a very talented Primary School teaching Mum. I was often described as a bossy sister who always enforced her rules as a second Mum! My tendencies for organisation and planning have given me the reputation as the ‘Mum to all’ amongst friends, especially with my ‘Mary Poppins’ handbag ready for any trip out – perfume, Panadol, band-aids, hair ties, snacks, bobby pins, and pens!

At the age of fourteen, I created my first babysitting advertisement to save up for a student exchange to Japan. I met the Young family, Lucas family, Bennett family, Schuster family, Tsekouras family, Gorman family and many, many more!

From an early age, I knew my real passion was working with people, especially children. 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 never picked up a golf club but I took care of children from France, Italy, Ireland, England, Sweden, New Zealand, America, South Africa and Australia along the way.

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.

As a (now) part-time nanny and the leader of the Melbourne Family Hub team, I look forward to introducing you to welcoming and loving families who are seeking your help.

I absoloutely love working for Bonnie and the MFH! Bonnie is one of the most friendly, personable and organised people that I know. As a casual babysitter working for Bonnie, I love the flexibility and the amount of reliable work that I am able to do. Every family I have met through the MFH have been really great to work for, many have made me feel like part of the family

"The boys absolutely love Jacquie - as do I! She's thoughtful, courteous and fun. We would have Jacqui back anytime. Thank you."
- Linda, Black Rock -
Working with Bonnie is a delight.  Communication is always clear and prompt and I’m never left wondering where I should be or when.  Bonnie spends time developing great relationships with all the MFH families, which is why they continue to request MFH babysitters.
