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 have loved working for all the families I have been placed with through Melbourne Family Hub. I have made very strong friendships and bonds with some of the families I work with regularly. I think for families it is very reassuring when seeking a babysitter to go through a repubtable agency such as Melbourne Family Hub as they have they peace of mind and security that all team members are screened and have the experience required to care for their kids

I have recommended working for Bonnie and the MFH to many of my friends and will continue to do so, because as a full time teacher, I love the flexibility and friendliness Bonnie and the MFH provide me. I know every time that I will be working for a MFH family they care and respect me as a professional and value my time

Working for MFH is a fun and rewarding experience. Bonnie is extremely well organised and the booking process is effortless. There is seamless communication and Bonnie is always available and approachable. I can’t speak more highly of the families that MFH work with, the kids have always been fun and happy, and the parents relaxed and friendly - it is obvious that they are confident in the sitters that Bonnie provides. I really enjoy babysitting with MFH and would definitely recommend joining to anyone who loves working with children and wants to earn a little extra money
