What Qualifications do your Babysitters have?
All our babysitters have their Blue Card, First Aid and CPR Certificates that are kept up to date at all times. They are either mum’s themselves or have worked in childcare for at least 3 years. They must be fun, professional and have glowing references. Most of our babysitters have their Certificate 3 or Diploma in Child Services.
How do you choose your Babysitters?
Besides having the required qualifications above and must be lots of fun with a passion for working with children, I only have Babysitters that I would trust with my own 2 kids. I would only send babysitters out to your family that I would want to babysit my own kids… and I’m very particular.
Do your Babysitters come to our house or hotel?
Yes, our babysitters will come to your house or hotel that you are staying at to look after your children.
Can your Babysitters take my children out of the house or hotel or to a Theme Park?
Yes, our babysitters can take your children on excursions. There are many fun things to do in Brisbane, on the Gold Coast and Byron Bay such as going to the park, the beach, to the movies or to any of the Theme Parks. You will be required to pay for the entry fee or activity for the babysitter as well as your children. We can just take them for a walk to get out of the house or play outside games as well.
What age are your Babysitters?
Our babysitters are all over 20 years of age and go right up to 70 years of age. Please feel free to request a certain age if you feel more comfortable with a particular age group.
Am I able to choose a particular Babysitter?
Yes, if the chosen babysitter is available when you require her, we would be happy to send her to you.
Am I able to meet the Babysitter prior to the booking?
Because we have such amazing sitters, they are always busy looking after little ones so it wouldn’t make it feasable to meet every family prior to the day. We do however, get your sitter to phone you the day prior to the booking to say hello and introduce themselves. You can even request a Video Chat! Our babysitters make you and your children feel relaxed and at-ease as soon as they walk in.
How much notice do I need to book a Babysitter?
If I can help you out and you need an emergency sitter, I will always do my best. We have been known to get sitters to you in just 20minutes!! We do last minute bookings if required, but we prefer if you could book at least a day or two before the booking when possible. If you want to ensure you get a particular sitter, please try and book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
How many children can 1 Babysitter look after?
Each babysitter can look after 5 children over 3 or 3 children under 3.
The ratio will be based on the youngest child.
