Our Belief System
We believe that finding the best education and care for children comes down to finding the best educators! We know that people with a passion for their role in children's lives are essential. We prioritise finding (and keeping!) educators and nannies who understand the impact they have on education and development in the early years.
Our team adopts a respectful interactions approach always. We believe that children have a right to:
-Have a strong sense of identity
-Connect with and contribute to their world
-Have a strong sense of wellbeing
- Be confident and involved learners
-Be effective communicators

Michaela was so lovely with our little one. We felt comfortable to leave after we saw how well entertained she was. It was a nice touch that she also sent us some photos throughout the day!
Thanks Michaela and the Ambient team!

We will find a fabulous nanny for you based on your family's specific requirements.
We will vet your new nanny for you, all you have to do is tell us what you're looking for! After a probationary period (2-4 weeks), your nanny will be employed by you on an agreed-upon arrangement. This option is great if you're wanting a nanny who can work regular hours and also allows you to have more say in the terms of employment and job description. You set your nanny's rate (in line with fair work standards) Please note: we recommend up to 6 weeks to search and find your perfect nanny. We can't guarantee success with shorter timeframes but will always do our best to accommodate.
$45 per hour agency fee
A once-off placement fee is paid to us after your nanny completes their probationary period (to ensure a good match is made).
