With these groups she toured Australia and the world and performed in some really amazing places.

Her aim is to bring music education and a love of music to as many people as possible.




Hear the Number 1 Nanny Tuesday at 10am and Saturdays at 4pm

(Australian Eastern Standard Time and US Eastern Time)

For as long as she can remember, Philippa Christian has dreamed of becoming Australia’s best nanny. She has worked nationally and internationally for a very large number of families including some very well know faces and over the years has gained, what she now feels is enough knowledge and experience to justify the title of, ‘Australia’s Number 1 Nanny’. Hear Philippa share her knowledge and expertise on Funky Kids Radio.


Primary Perspectives is a show produced in Melbourne, Australia and is "Radio for Kids, By Kids". We are excited to be broadcasting their work and supporting the education of kids in the media. Primary Perspectives was awarded Australia’s ‘Best New Radio Program – Talks’ at the 2012 CBAA Awards.

Listen to Primary Perspectives Tuesdays at 4pm AEST and US Eastern Time.
