Almost a year into the federal government's trial of subsidising nannies and fewer than 200 families are using the service.

Government officials told a Senate committee on Thursday that 473 children from 186 families were being cared for by nannies in the program that started in January.

However, earlier in the month the government revealed some 2900 families were interested in the program but there weren't enough nannies signed up to meet the demand.
