How Do I Know Your Staff Are Qualified?

We know how hard it is to find affordable, trustworthy, and reliable staff. That’s why we take safety very seriously and put our staff through a thorough screening test before signing anyone onto our books. All our staff are required to have a Working with Children Check, Police Check, First Aid, and checkable references. We strive to match you with a member of staff who has the appropriate level of experience, personality type, and relevant skillset who will compliment you and your family.

How Many Children Can One Member of Staff Look After?

The safety of your children is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why we don't ever have any more than 4 children per nanny. This number is sometimes reduced depending on the age of your little ones. If you have queries about child ratios, send us an inquiry, and we can give you a personalised response related to your child's needs.

Can I Combine Childcare With Another Family?

We get it. Sometimes you want to combine childcare with your friends or share a nanny. Whether it’s to save on costs or get your kids together. Whatever the reason, we’re happy to accommodate up to two families in one booking, providing there’s the correct child to caregiver ratio. If you do decide the share the costs with another family, there’ll be an extra charge of $5.00 per hour and an extra $5.00 booking fee.

What if a Member of Staff Doesn’t Work Out?

As much as we want them to, sometimes things don’t always work out. If, for whatever reason, you feel like your new member of staff is not a good fit, Lisa’s Staffing Solutions are happy to find you a replacement. Once we receive your request, we’ll provide you with an approximate time frame once we have all your booking details. Swiftly getting you back on track to finding the perfect fit.
