Last Minute Minders came to life in 2007 and was established by Hannah Wrixon who recognised a need for staffing support in the childcare industry.
Hannah ran a successful crèche in Limerick for a number of years and knows the difficulties that face childcare providers around staffing, in particular maintaining ratios in the event of staff absences. As a parent of three Hannah also recognised the struggles that all working parents face around childcare. Last Minute Minders was initially born to address these needs.
We have adapted and grown the business in line with our customer’s needs over the years and now offer a suite of services to support them.
Last Minute Minders is a community of childcare professionals who are Garda vetted, qualified, reference checked and interviewed. Our rigorous pre-screening means that only the very best minders are accepted into our community.
We with our Minders have the knowledge and experience to offer solutions that work for you.
We are an introductory agency with a community of dedicated minders nationwide who provide childcare support.
We introduce users of our service to these amazing minders for relief and emergency support.
Each minder has an online profile where they can set their availability, preferred work locations and manage their work.
Our community of Minders have gone through our rigorous screening process to become a member. This means that they are now available to support creches, hotels and parents.
All of our minders are self employed contractors who work independently.
I am our Placement Officer and, I have the lovely job of coordinating the placement of minders for all of our clients nationwide. I also liaise with Crèches and Parents to anticipate their needs and plan cover for them on a daily and weekly basis. I studied Business and computers at HSI, Limerick.

As a parent of three Hannah also recognised the struggles that all working parents face around childcare. Last Minute Minders was initially born to address these needs. Responding to additional needs within the industry we developed and grew our business and are a valuable resource to businesses within the Early Childhood Industry and continue to support families with childcare needs within the home.
I am the Recruitment Officer for Last Minute Minders and the first point of contact for Minders who wish to register with us or for clients who would like support in recruiting long term or permanent staff for their team. I interview and background check all of our minders. As a Mom myself I know how important it is that our minders are of the highest calibre. I studied HR at University of Limerick and have a background in recruiting in the commercial and healthcare industries, I am also currently studying Early Childhood at Mary Immaculate College.
