(PRWEB) April 27, 2007
The Herald Sun recently reported that the “male nanny is the latest child-rearing accessory of the rich and famous.” Male nannies have gained popularity since celebrities like Britney Spears and Liz Hurley began employing them.
Find A Babysitter.com.au (FAB) is one of the only places where parents can find both males and females to help with child care. FAB is an introduction Web site that has been helping Australian families find nannies and babysitters in an efficient and affordable way since 2005.
Over 3,500 babysitters and nannies registered across Australia are currently available at Find A Babysitter.com.au. Approximately one percent of these care takers are male. Online profiles of the carers show details like their qualifications, experience, availability and hourly rates.
Many of the males registered at FAB are students, who work part-time and have backgrounds in education or disability support services. Most of the male nannies have experience working with children through sports coaching, after school care programs or camps.
“Without stereotyping there is no doubt that men and women bring different aspects to their child care. Most mums can confirm that men are naturally inclined to do the fun ‘rough and tumble’ play. Some families may specifically seek a male to help with high energy kids who like this sort of active play,” says Timms.
“Decisions should be made to find the most suitable carer for your family, whether they are male or female. Parents should select a nanny based on skills, experience, qualifications and character. It also depends on the personality of the child and the rapport with the carer,” says Timms.
FAB provides a comprehensive, advanced online search, which allows parents to narrow down the selection around specific criteria. Find A Babysitter.com.au customers can also post jobs online to attract applicants. This ‘double whammy’ approach is thorough and effective and ensures that the right match is found, whether the carer is a nanny or a manny.
Find A Babysitter.com.au has nannies, after-school carers and babysitters in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Hobart and Launceston.
