Testimonials from Clients


‘As a frazzled new mother of two, Centenary Nannies has come to my rescue and restored my sanity – twice.
Kristy and the team found me a calm, caring and extremely practical mother craft nurse who in two days transformed my baby’s afternoon nap from fractious to fantastic. The team also succeeded in an almost impossible task: to find me a nanny in two days who lives nearby to help out when a work contract unexpectedly came my way. Sally Rathie is incredibly calm, kind and a perfect fit for our family.
I will be forever grateful to Centenary Nannies for their excellent contacts, professionalism and compassion.

Meredith – Gold Coast Babysitting client – 26/04/14


‘I have worked with many agencies and by far you have been the nicest to work with. As well as being very efficient and careful in the candidates you sent. I have already referred many of my cousins to you and would gladly refer more! I am happy I feel you have really found me the right candidates!’

‘Carol was fantastic. Phoebe loved her. She asked if she could look after her again.’

Jessica T – 26/09/13

Thankyou so much for recommending Amanda she was amazing and everything went really smoothly. She was very friendly, professional, and confident with the girls. My husband and I were able to have a really nice night out without the girls for the first time in 4 1/2 months which was lovely.
It was a pleasure doing business with you and we would definitely consider your business again in the future if we are up that way.

Kristi C. 23/09/13

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that the nanny that you provided for us – Nanny Dianne – is an absolute superwoman. We came home last night and she had cooked is a roast dinner (the whole family) and ironed all my husband’s shirts when she has a spare minute!!! Both bubbas were at her feet beaming at her when I came home. Thank you thank you thank you !!

Edel was great!! Flynn fell in love with her straight away and was really showing off for her. Once I saw how happy he was with her and how lovely she was I went off to work feeling much better.
Thank you so much!! If any of my friends ever need a nanny or sitter I will be highly recommending your company. Every time I’ve needed someone you’ve gone above and beyond and you have the best employee’s!!
Thanks again.

Thank you so much for the excellent and professional service you supply in helping us with our nannies and babysitters. I really appreciate the fact that you get back to me quickly and it is reassuring to know that I can trust your advice. Thanks again.

Sonya. J. Newmarket 12/08/10

I saw the Centenary Nannies ad one day and after years of juggling decided to get some help in the afternoon. I liked the way you were not tied to weekly payments, and could have choice in whom and when you interview. Kristy made the whole process simple and easy. Before I knew it, I now have a terrific afternoon nanny who both my husband and myself, warmed to straight away. The kids think she is great and I now have a weight lifted off my shoulders.
Thank You Centenary Nannies.

Jo B. Jindalee

Centenary Nannies provided me with a fast, easy and cost effective solution to finding a suitable nanny for my daughter. Kristy called me regularly with updates on candidates and found a suitable lady within 3 weeks of calling her. The first lady I interviewed through Kristy was fabulous and she is now working for me and we are extremely happy. Kristy took the time to really understand my requirements and was extremely enthusiastic. After placement, she called me several times to see how the new nanny was going, and she also sent a thank you card for the business.

…..All in all, very personal, professional and successful!

Angela Y. Brookfield

I was in desperate need of a professional and caring babysitter. Sitting in a coffee chop reading a magazine I came across the Centenary Nannies advertisement. I gave them a call in which they gave me all the information I needed. I chose to utilize the babysitting service for my 4 children and have never looked back. Centenary Nannies is very thorough, professional, and reliable and above all the rates are very affordable. Centenary Nannies service is outstanding as they are very efficient and prompt. Thank-you Centenary Nannies.



Testimonials from Nannies


Just a quick note to say thanks for everything this year. I’ve never been involved with an agency before, actually ive avoided them very carefully, but have found you to be lovely and decent to work for.
So want to say a big thanks for everything.

Lynda P. Wishart 23/12/10

Thank you so much for helping me get this position  – I really am loving it, it has been the best move ever, and I owe it to you!!! Thank you:)

Tara, Alexandra Hills. 30/11/10

I felt compelled to write you a message this afternoon to say thank you for being so helpful and kind to your nannies.
I have recently, this week and over the last year, had contact with a couple of other Brisbane nanny agencies who are much less receptive to me, and I presume ‘nannies’ in general.
While I appreciate that the money comes from families, I believe very strongly that your reputation comes equally from nannies. I stand at school four days of the week, chatting with other mums. I am in my late 20’s and so I have a lot of friends having children. The families I work for value my opinion and if I was to say ‘don’t use this service’, they wouldn’t. I often go for interviews which I have sourced myself and if I can’t help them out, give a recommendation to an agency (always centenary nannies 🙂 ).
So when agencies fail to respond to you after you have declined a position or don’t reply to e-mails asking for work until it suits them, or make it harder than running a marathon to join the agency they are doing a dis-service to themselves.

When I was working at an organisation last year, you sent a girl to work with me one week, her name I can’t remember. She said to me that day that she didn’t mind staying back to help me clean up because it was important to her to give you (Centenary nannies) a good reputation. I think a great example of how treating people well goes a long way!

Thank you Centenary nannies, for taking care of your nannies and your clients. They very much appreciate it!

Elissa Smith Wellington Point 27/10/12

Thank you so much for everything. I must say you have been the best agency in terms of communicating with me.

Claire T. Upper Commera 20/10/10

I have worked for Centenary Nannies as a babysitter for almost a year now.  From the start, they were professional and caring.  Their number 1 priority is finding the perfect babysitter for their clients.  I was interviewed and once approved, started receiving steady work with fantastic clients.  Kristy and Laura are genuine, fantastic and approachable “real people” and I would recommend them to anyone.

Naomi H. Coorparoo 14/04/10

Thank-you for all the work and contacts you have put me onto in the last month or more. I was really struggling and your help has been greatly appreciated. Thank-you for being so reliable and the recommendations you have given the parents I have worked for. Your doing a great job.

Tanya C. Sinnamon Park

As a result of the prompt, efficient and friendly service provided by
Centenary Nannies I was able to be placed with a family whose requirements
were very compatible with my student timetable!

Kim V. Karana Downs

When I contacted Kristy I had just returned to Brisbane and was looking for 2 days work Nannying. With my extensive experience I was hoping to find the right match with a family that would appropriately reward my contribution. I searched on the website and contacted Kristy who arranged for an interview that same day and by that evening I had spoken to the family who I am now happily employed by. It was a great match in record time and I think that is because of Kristy’s honesty and willingness to do whatever it takes for her clients and those seeking employment. I would recommend her as she is interested in genuinely finding an appropriate match which is the most important ingredient for this field caring for children where the intention is for longevity and continuity for the child, not just getting someone in the job. Thanks Kristy!

Tammy R. Bowen Hills

Extremely approachable, professional and reliable. Centenary Nannies answered all my queries with detailed responses and I have had no problems finding work, with plenty of it being offered.

Kathryn M. St.Lucia

Centenary Nannies were very efficient. I emailed my resume at 8:00am, and by 12:30pm that same day, I had two job interviews lined up! I secured a job within 3 days and started working within 5.

Taryn S. Jamboree Heights

Centenary Nannies is one of the most professional nanny services that I have come across. After I registered with Centenary Nannies over the internet I was glad to receive a prompt courtesy call to see how I was and to assure me they are trying their hardest to find me a position. Throughout the job search process they have kept in contact with me and gave me all the information I have asked for if not more. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and I would recommend Centenary Nannies to Families and potential Nannies alike.

Gavin D. Indooroopilly

Centenary Nannies have been a great help in find me a lovely family to nanny for, 3 days a week. Kristy has always been available if any help was needed for anything; she has always kept me up to date on any new information that could help me in the industry, and on any new jobs that I may want to add to my 3 days. I would not hesitate in recommending this service to either families looking for a nanny or people wanting to find that perfect family. I’m thankful I found Centenary nannies when I did.
