About 'MAP Australia'

My Au Pair & Nannies Australia

MAP Australia was first conceived when retired professional-turned-single-mother-of-three, Summer Fox, recognised a large gap in the market in regards to a platform that could source high quality childcare options for Australian families.


Summer then set about building what is now a highly successful nationwide business, catering for the varying needs of busy families, whether it be a wonderful live-in au pair, a highly-trained nanny or a trusted babysitter.


Providing a personalised, unique service that was previously missing in the market, Summer has also drawn on her own first-hand experience in the industry: she was raised with nannies and babysitters during her own formative years and went on to work as an au pair while living overseas as a student, before becoming a busy working mother herself in the UK and Australia requiring at-home childcare.


Summer’s primary goal as founder of MAP Australia is to make the process of hiring help a smooth, trusting and stress-free experience for everyone involved, leaving both the family and the candidate happy and comfortable with their specialised MAP match.

  • Casual Babysitters

  • Nannies

  • Au Pairs (live in and live out)

  • Housekeepers

  • Emergency childcare help

  • Holiday care and overseas/interstate travel assistance for your family

After becoming a single mum at the beginning of 2018, Summer took Director's leave from MAP Australia to focus on her own family. Over the past 15 months Summer received huge amount of interest from families and candidates who required her services and she knew she wasn't reaching a large enough audience to truly make an impact so she decided to take action and adjust her business model.

Summer realised that there needed to be a space for families to get assistance when not only finding the right nanny or au pair, but figuring out what it is that they need and ongoing support, advice and assistance throughout the periods when childcare is needed for their family and deliver it in a very real & raw way so that she could really make an impact Australia-wide.


Whilst on Director's leave, Summer started to create an abundance resources such as online support videos, eBooks, guides for families and candidates in Australia that she cannot wait to share with you all to access from MAP Australia in 2019.  


MAP is launching in November 2019 a platform for families and candidates to get information, support, advice and access to specialists within the industry to assist in all of their needs as a family or candidate within Australia. 

MAP has partnered with some incredible companies that allow this to happen and we are very excited to show you what we have mid-2019.
