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.

Bonnie

Bonnie is always so clear in her communication both individually and as a team. I love that jobs are communicated on a daily basis and if you have the availability you can opt in to work. I love that each family and the babysitter always get a copy of the terms and conditions of the booking along with the babysitter’s video message. It has been relayed to me on more than one occasion by the parents that they love watching the video messages and showing the kids so their family are comfortable before meeting their babysitter

"Melissa is delightful. The kids really like her and look forward to her babysitting them. Thanks for your help Bonnie."
- Belinda, Kew -
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

"Bethan was great. She was early (which given the early start was a lovely surprise!) and Jack seemed to have a great day with her."
