‘ACS’ is owned and managed by Felicity Gray who has had 25 years experience working within the Industry where she has worked as a nanny both overseas and with various families throughout Australia.  Felicity also holds a strong background in Corporate Recruitment so therefore understands the importance of a thorough recruiting process and finding the right carer to suit your families individual needs. Whilst experience is key, matching someone with the dynamic of your family, centre or company is just as important.

Our trained team understands that your children are your highest priority, and wherever possible will be happy to answer all of your queries regarding employing a carer. We take pride in offering candidates that are compatible with all your needs. ACS has a very thorough interviewing and reference checking procedure, including the Working with Children Check clearance and a Police Records Check for each State. We also conduct reference checks with previous employers to ensure that they reach our high standards in levels of performance.

The candidates that we send to you come to us through a multitude of avenues. Some are career Nannies or Mothercraft Nurses, others may be the Mothers of children themselves, many are qualified Childcare Educators and others have vast experience with young children. Some candidates will fit all of these groups. All of our carers have satisfied our requirements as to being a competent childcarer with the ability to think on their feet and manage every day as well as out-of-the ordinary childcare situations. You will always be given an honest assessment of each candidate capabilities and background.

We are also able to provide families who qualify for the In-home childcare subsidy (IHC) with carers who are willing to become registered with and IHC Support Agency.  Please note that IHC is a specific type of care that is targeted to families who meet the IHC eligibility criteria.

Abracadabra is also a Member of the Australian Nanny Association ‘ANA’ so we show a keen interest in the Industry and keeping updated on Industry news for both our families and carers.  For more information on ANA please visit the ANA website.
