Nannies working in Melbourne must hold a valid Working with Children Check. The WWC Check screens a person’s national criminal history and in some cases their professional conduct. The Department of Justice & Regulation continues to monitor these records for the life of each card - that’s five years.
Application forms can be found at the Victorian Government website. A WWC Check costs $116.14 and the process takes between two and three weeks.
First Aid certificates should be renewed every three years. The Australian Resuscitation Council recommends a yearly refresher course to ensure that a First Aider is able to perform CPR effectively. WonderWoman Children offer fun, up-to-date courses for nannies and families.
