The Australian Nanny Association Incorporated (ANA) was established in 2012 in response to the increasing demand for in-home childcare.
The Australian Nanny Association is the first Australian association to represent all sections of the nanny industry, and believes that the nanny industry can achieve the best possible outcomes for all involved by working together as a whole.
The Australian Nanny Association aims to provide a support network for Australia’s nannies, families who employ nannies, and service providers (agencies).
The Australian Nanny Association believes professional nannies should be recognised as a legitimate quality childcare option for families, and and that the availability of the Child Care Rebate (CCR) should be extended to families who employ nannies. This would allow greater flexibility in meeting the childcare needs of Australian families.
The Australian Nanny Association also aims to educate the public about nannies and the role they play in the care of children within the community.
ANA participates in a variety of Stakeholder and Government Consultations.
Currently ANA is participating in regular consultation with the Federal Government and key stakeholders on Early Childcare and Learning to complement the Council, the Department of Education. The Group’s membership encompasses organisations from across the sector with experience in the operation of child care and early learning services.
