The Australian Nanny Association (ANA) is a nonprofit professional association and the national peak body representing the Australian nanny community. The ANA has created an amazing support network for the nanny community and provides peace of mind for families, nannies, and nanny agencies in creating professional standards in the field of childcare.
The team at mini were very fortunate to have been invited by the ANA to attend their sold-out networking event, Growing Together down at the Gold Coast. What an exciting and busy day it was networking with other professionals in the field of childcare! Growing Together showcased the important elements in the nanny industry; namely, how isolated the industry is, yet such a rewarding industry to be a part of! The event came to life on the beautiful Gold Coast with the most inspiring guest speakers, innovative workshops, and some singing and dancing.
Needless to say, we had an overall ball at this event! Growing Together made us feel like we walked away with invaluable knowledge about the nanny sector and well informed about new regulated laws coming into effect in Australia. Thank goodness we have Ann Marie, the President of the ANA, for supporting what we do and for bringing the most engaged community of nannies together to support each other.
Michelle, our Director of mini had the privilege to have met the lovely, and gorgeous Daria, from The Nanny Collective-- talk about girl boss! Daria exudes authenticity and motivation. The Nanny Collective is a boutique referral nanny agency based out of Sydney, and we can’t speak highly enough of their team and how they conduct business.
The future is only bright and exciting for our nannies and the girls at mini Nanny Agency. Take it from us and our personal experiences, the ANA committee are extremely supportive and are an encyclopedia of nanny industry knowledge, tips, and advice.
