What makes a great nanny?

Here are a few key ways to tell if a nanny is the right fit for your family.



I am holidaying on the Sunshine Coast over the Xmas period and we have also been invited to a wedding in Coolum on New Year’s Eve. I thought it would be near impossible to find a babysitter to care for our two young boys on such a busy night but, as a long shot, I thought I would post the job on your website (but I wasn’t holding my breath). To my utter astonishment I received 15 responses to my advert from potential babysitters – I was totally blown away and the quality of applicants was excellent too! I am very pleased to report that thanks to FindaBabysitter I have now secured a very experienced and qualified babysitter on New Year’s Eve and my husband and I can enjoy a night out together.
