Say “No!” to wait lists
We’ve all been there as parents. The year long wait list or too few days. Well now that you can create your own daycare, what are you waiting for?
How It Works
1. Connect with local families
Create your family profile to tell your neighbourhood who you are and a bit about your family and childcare needs, including the days and times you need.
You can find other families who match your needs and they can find you.
Connect, chat and if a good match you can start your nanny search together.
2. Working together as a team
You can search for a nanny together or separately, just keep each other in the loop with the nannies you’ve found as you go.
When you think you’ve found the perfect nanny, simply arrange to meet so you can verify them personally and any qualifications presented.
3. Starting your new daycare
To kickstart your nanny share, return to your nanny’s profile on Hapu to pay your half. Your team mate will be sent a request to pay their half and when completed, you’re all set to start your new daycare.
And you did it together. Power to the people, man.
Frequently Asked Questions

What is payroll?
Payroll handles all payments to your nanny and all of your obligations as an employer including tax and super contributions (where necessary). Payroll ensures your compliance and that nannies and sitters receive all of their legally mandated entitlements.
How many children can be in our day care?
You can have a total of 4 children cared for by one nanny or sitter. Currently Hapu only allows 2 families to share.
Are there fees for payroll?
Our payroll partner have their own fees but here you’ll also share these costs with your sharing family. There is a $60 fortnightly payroll fee but your costs are only $30.
Why do I see such low hourly rates on Hapu?
Nannies enter their own rates on Hapu and then our system automatically splits them so you only view your total costs. Similarly so, the other family you will share with only sees their share of the costs too.
What fees does Hapu charge?
Hapu has a 6% service fee on top of what you’ll pay to your nanny. This helps us run our platform.
