Our nanny membership is for all home-based child carers (including nannies, mannies, and in-home educators). Our aim is to bring together, support, and represent nannies and other home-based child carers working in Australia.

We welcome those who want to join our fantastic national community as an ANA member.

Nanny members of the ANA will be recognised publicly as individuals dedicated to providing quality in-home childcare services and having an ongoing commitment to professional development and practice. Nanny members will have the right to nominate and vote for ANA committee positions, and the opportunity to have their voices heard on issues being faced by the industry.
