    Melisa at Nunanny has saved my life more times than I can count! From helping me find our own wonderful nanny Sarah for our twin boys, to the babysitting service and now finding a temporary nanny to cover Sarah’s maternity leave, Nunanny has become a trusted, reliable service that I can highly recommend to any parents. The attention to detail and reliability is unlike any other service I’ve used in the past. You can’t go wrong if you choose Nunanny!

    We recently visited Cape Town for work and were looking for some support for our ten month old while we were working. Through a friend of a friend, we were connected to Melisa and her team and we are so happy that we found Nunanny! Melisa was wonderfully helpful, working with our mixed hours and being flexible as the week went on as we realized we needed more hours than we originally booked. She matched us with the amazing Catherine, who was the perfect combination of warm, nurturing and totally professional! She not only knew exactly what our son needed, but she also knew exactly what to say to us as parents to reassure us, as we were leaving our son in an unfamiliar setting! Since we were in a hotel and not our own home, it also meant “making do” and being adaptable to whatever worked for naps, feedings, etc, and our son was so well cared for! We feel very grateful. We miss Nunanny services already now that we are back home and will not hesitate to contact them when we are back in town next time! Highly, highly recommend!

    Best in the biz… they found us the most incredible 3rd parent for our little crew. Melissa and team understood exactly what our needs were and matched us with an absolute game changer of a women. We don’t know ourselves without Rudo’s unyielding support. Thank you Nunanny for helping us find Rudo!

    I’m currently sitting in our spare room (hiding) while I listen to my little boy giggle and screech with excitement while Stephanie (our dream nanny) plays with him in the sweetest way. I am a full time mom and was in need of a much deserved break. We got in touch with NuNanny and the next day I had this delightfully happy and professional angel smiling at our gate. This is the 4th time we are using NuNanny, we’ve had Stephanie every time, which I love because my son LOVES her. I couldn’t recommend them more. They’ve saved me in more ways than one.

    Our son is 7 months old. We have used NuNanny several times over the past few months, and loved the service each time. Melissa is fast, friendly, and professional. I really enjoyed the individual profiles, the ability to pick our preferred nanny, and the ability to find ones close to our home. All the nannies arrived on time and took great care of our little one. Would recommend!

    What a fantastic service, with such fantastic nannies! It is easy to book the same nanny over again, and everything works smooth. Payment is also done very easy.

    I have been visiting CT with my family for 2 weeks and Nunanny has been a great and easy way for us to squeeze a couple of date nights into our schedule. We had a really nice and loving babysitter that had no problem handling our 3 kids. I can highly recommend their services!

Ad-hoc Booking

We book our Nunannies out at a higher flexible hourly rate.This is perfect for shorter periods like Holidays, when you need someone at more unusual hours than a typical 8/9 hour day, usually 8/9-5/6pm).

For example you could book the same Nunanny for multiple days for a morning booking from 8am-2pm (6hours), and she could come back for the evening babysitting from 5pm-11pm. Please see below for the current pricing.

We charge a R600 matching fee, and we send you 3 candidates that match your criteria. We then help you interview and trial, any or all candidates. Our fee is R2500 per month or part thereof.

If you decide to employ your short term nanny full time after 3 months – then there is no placement fee if you have paid more than R4000 in short term fees to us.

Permanent Placements
