Facts For Daisycare Nannies and Babysitters

Am I eligible to register with your agency?
If you meet all our Selection Criteria then you may apply.

Why are we interviewed and referenced checked?
Daisycare Nanny Agency follows a stringent interview process to provide our clients with the most suitably qualified and experienced nannies, babysitters and wedding nannies.    We are not a database of names like online websites we like to meet our Daisycare Babysitters and Nannies personally and we pride ourselves on the close and lengthy relationships we develop with all of our professional Carers.

What is the new Working With Children Check?
The new Working With Children Check in NSW covers more people, is more comprehensive and provides better protection for children. It is also consistent with other state and territory Checks, working towards for a National Working With Children Check.

Why do I need a car?
One of our policies is for all of our carers to have a current driver’s license and access to a car in order to get home of their own accord from a booking or to use in case of an emergency.

Am I employed by Daisycare Nanny Agency?
We do not employ our Carers.  Daisycare Nanny Agency is an introduction agency and we match our Daisycare Carers with our clients needs.  All our Daisycare Nannies and Babysitters have an ABN Number and essentially work for themselves.

How do I get Paid?
For casual babysitting services you will be paid by the client at the end of the assignment. For wedding and event services you will complete a timesheet and this will be paid into your nominated bank account every Thursday. This ensures you are protected during the time you are at work with Workers Compensation and Public Liability coverage.

How much do I get paid?

For casual babysitting assignments you will be paid by the region $24 to $25 an hour by the client at the end of the night.

For wedding and event services you will be paid between $22 – $28 an hour depending on your nanny level and role. Team Leader rates are higher.

For permanent placements the nannies rate will depend on two things the families budget and what the nannies will accept for the job at hand and their expected hourly rate. Usually the rate can range from $18 to $25 an hour this of course depends on the nannies experience and expectations of the position and age of the children.

What happens about Tax?
Daisycare Nanny Agency does not employ our carers, therefore all tax obligations and super obligations are to be fulfilled by the carer themselves. All our Carers are required to have an ABN Number. We will provide you the tools to keep a record of all income earned during the financial year and all invoices issued for Wedding and Event Care. Daisycare Nanny Agency can provide you with a history of your assignments however the start time and finish times are not accurate.

How many Children will I be caring for?

We have a 1:4 ratio and lower for babies and group bookings. Our Nannies are safely matched to the number of children and the ratios are a combination of legislative standards and our experience of providing quality care and we share the importance of children’s safety, welfare, happiness and wellbeing.

What are my responcibilities?

Responsibilities vary widely from job to job, depending on the age of the children their specific needs and the particular requirements set by the parents. As a  Babysitter you may need to provide a meal or snack for the children, entertain and engage the kids in activities and will also be responsible for following through with the family’s bedtime routine.

For each Assignment you will have a clear understanding of your responsibilities for the night, parents contact details, defined expectations and in-depth information of the needs and routine of the children in your care. The Assignment Information will help you understand how to carry out each of your responsibilities so you are not left guessing on your own.

What is an Assignment Summary Form?
This form is sent to you when you have been booked for a Assignment. It has all the information you need about the Assignment including client names and contact details, expected start and finish times and how many children will be in your care and the routine of the night. Take a copy of the Assignment Summery to the assignment.

Why do we provide parents with an Assignment Evaluation?

An Assignment Evaluation provides parents with an evaluation of the night’s events and how the child/ren were and how their time was spent with the Daisycare Babysitter. This assists parents who have young children and provide information regarding their last feed and sleep times.
