where children are the #1 priority

About Us

Centenary Nannies was founded in 2007, to serve the families of Brisbane in response to a need in the market for professional child care workers, whom have exceptional knowledge and a genuine desire to work with children.

In 2012 Centenary Nannies saw the need to expand and help the families on the Gold Coast. With head office in Brisbane we are now working to ensure families find that ‘right’ carer and nannies are finding that ‘right’ job!

kristyKristy Aitken is the Founder and Director of Centenary Nannies. She has worked in child care centres and as a Nanny throughout Brisbane for over eight years. From this, she has realised there is a gap in the market, as a result has established Centenary Nannies in an effort to help the families of Brisbane. She also has her certificate 3, which has been recognised by two reputable Colleges. Kristy now hopes to utilize her experiences in child care, with the specific purpose of helping families in Brisbane, to find the right Nanny to suit their needs.

Kristy is now a mother herself as she gave birth to her first child Ava in April 2008 and had her second baby, Sophie, in April 2011. Now that Kristy is a mother herself, she can certainly understand families needing home help and acknowledges the reasons families need professional nannies.
