Child Care, Babysitting and Nanny Jobs Melbourne

Working with children as a nanny, child carer or babysitter is a rewarding career for those with the right skills and aptitude. Abracadabra prides itself on providing superior child care services to Melbourne families.  We believe that the morale of our carers is a key factor in ensuring the highest quality of child care service, and we go to great lengths to make Abracadabra a rewarding, fun place to work.

Abracadabra is a founding member of the National In Home Childcare Association (NICA) and played a lead role in formulating statutory standards for the childcare industry. Sandy Faure, who established Abracadabra back in 1987, is also a founder member of the Australian Association of Nanny Agencies, which introduced a succession of initiatives which have resulted in today’s Working With Children cards being mandatory for childcare jobs in Melbourne.
