Welcome to Australian Nanny Association

What is the Australian Nanny Association?

The Australian Nanny Association Incorporated (ANA) was established in 2012 in response to the increasing demand for in-home childcare. As the main peak body for our industry, we represent our members from the home-based child care sector including and not limited to nannies, in-home care educators, home-based carers, families employing nannies, agencies, and service providers of home-based care services.

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 believes professional nannies should be recognised as a legitimate quality childcare option for families, 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 their role in the care of children within the community.

ANA (3) (1)

A voice for our industry.

ANA participates in a variety of Stakeholder and Government Consultations. Over the years, the ANA has participated in regular consultation with the Federal Government, key stakeholders in Early Childcare and Learning, the Department of Education, the Fair Work Ombudsman, the ATO, various media outlets and other peak organisations. The Group’s membership encompasses organisations from across the sector with experience in the operation of child care and early learning services.



Join our vibrant national community as an Australian Nanny Association member. There are options for nannies, agencies, businesses, families and individual supporters.
The ANA committee is made up of community volunteers and we are always looking for more.  If you would like to support the ANA further by volunteering, please get in touch!
