About Safekeeping CQ

We’re an experienced, professional Nanny and carer referral service who understand the need for affordable, personalised childcare and home/community support.

We take the time to learn about your family and your needs to allow us to match you with the perfect carer.


We understand the complexities associated with living (and raising a family) in rural areas, whether you’re on a remote property, part of a small community or in a regional city.

The “CQ” in our name stands for “Central Queensland”: we specialise in placing nannies and carers with families in Central Queensland and the Central West region.

Our nannies and carers are perfectly suited to:

  • families whose schedules can’t fit around regular day care hours or who have no access to day care centres
  • mums and dads who need an extra pair of hands to help out with childcare
  • caring for your loved ones, whether they are elderly, disabled, injured or ill.

To find out more about how we can find the perfect carer for you, give us a call or visit our services page.


Because we understand how much professional, quality carers can benefit a family’s life, we take great care in selecting the perfect nanny, au pair or carer for you. We make the process simple and hassle free, starting by listening to your needs. We will be here to help through the entire process and are only a phone call away. For your peace of mind, we offer one replacement guarantee and we screen, interview and check all candidates prior to placement.


Zoey is a working mother from Central Queensland who understands the difficulties of finding flexible care for children and loved ones that fit around our busy work schedules and lives. She is a very passionate person who loves to help people and loves children. Zoey’s work background reflects this greatly. She has worked in community service positions including aged care, disability care and predominantly as a youth worker for many years. Zoey also has a recent background as an educator for school-aged children. She knows what it takes in a person and the requirements needed for these types of positions. Zoey started Safekeeping CQ because she saw the need for a local, personal referral service to connect families with the nannies, au pairs and carers that will make their lives easier.
