Babysitting

Sapphire Coast Nannies caters for children and families in the South Coast community and visitors to the area.

We understand the importance of finding someone you feel secure in leaving your children with.

We will provide you and your family with qualified, experienced, mature, professional Babysitters and Nannies who share the importance of your children’s safety, welfare, happiness and well-being.

Our Babysitters are available 7 days a week, every day of the year.

Our Online Facility allows easy bookings and allows you to provide as much information regarding your children and family details such as contact details and routine giving your Babysitter a heads up on the night regarding the care and needs of your children.

For members of Sapphire Coast Nannies we believe that consistency is important and we will match your family with Two Babysitters so that they are known to your family and known to your children. We believe that continuity is important and so seek to establish ongoing relationships between our babysitters and the families we match them with whenever possible. We believe in developing our relationships with families in our community and the Babysitters.

5 EASY STEPS FOR BOOKING A BABYSITTER

  1. When you require a Babysitter complete the BOOK ONLINE FORM on our website. Provide as much information that will assist the Babysitter in the care of your children and catering for your family’s needs.
  2. Once you submit the form it will then proceed to our Payment System where you are required at this point to provide your Credit Card details.
    The $30 Booking Fee will be processed and an invoice sent through for your records. Closer to the date of service the remaining payment for time booked will be deducted.
  3. Once your Nanny has been secured you will be sent their Profile. This is our way of introducing parents and children to the Nannies child care qualifications, experience as a professional childcare worker and most importantly a Photo to put a face to the name. Your Nanny will phone you to introduce themselves and to provide their contact details.
  4. At the end of the assignment the Nannies Timesheet will require signature attesting to hours of service used, you will also receive a written evaluation of the night’s events on how the children were and how their time was spent with the Nanny. If the assignment exceeds booked an additional charge will be made.
  5. For Group Bookings each family is required to provide a Booking Form for our records so we have information regarding all the children in their care of our Babysitters.
