Booking a Nanny or Babysitter with PAUA Poppetts means peace of mind for you.

We screen a vast amount of applicants for a position with PAUA Poppetts and we make every effort to represent and offer only the best applicants in the childcare industry. We carefully choose our carers and place them only with the ages of children they are most comfortable caring for. We do not take on everybody who applies to us.

We are here to assist our carers 24 hours a day and maintain a close working relationship with them, having meetings with all Nannies and Babysitters on a regular basis.

PAUA Poppetts carers are chosen for their fun, outgoing attitude along with the responsibility and reliability you would expect from a childcare professional.

We personally interview all of our Nannies and Babysitters one on one before we carry out our pre-screening process.

PAUA Poppetts and St John First Aid
