Peace of mind for working parents

When you are a parent working full-time, it's a juggle.  One of the worst things is the mad dash to get to after-school care pick-up on time.  That white knuckle feeling of trying to race home to get to after school care is stressful.  You finally make it (or not!) and you are so tired from the working day that you can barely think about dinner.  So unhealthy take-away is all you can muster.

Then there's readers, baths, quality time with the kids........Agh!

Looking for help with the kids can be a nightmare.  Nannies generally want full-time work and many parents don't necessarily want the kids in after-school care every day.  Then there is the stress that is getting home and sorting out dinner.   

NONNA is all about offering flexibility and service.  Our Nonnas have years of experience raising their own children and love looking after children.  They don't necessarily want full-time work, so a few hours a day is just right.  They can pick up your children from school and cook the family dinner.  So you can take your time getting home, knowing the kids are in good hands AND dinner is sorted for you too.

Nonna of the month - Nonna Mac

Every home loves a Nonna.  ANY home would be lucky to have Nonna Mac.  

Nonna Mac is warm, friendly and quick to smile.  Having raised three children of her own and run a family daycare looking after six children (at once!), her experience speaks for itself.

When Nonna Mac has spare time she is reading, attending book club and loves to share her love of books with children. Nonna Mac loves to cook and is a dab hand at delicious pasta dishes.

When asked what makes a great Nonna, Nonna Mac replied "Someone who would treat my child as their own." Nonna Mac would love a NONNA position that allows her to take the children to the park and cook for them and the family.
