Find A Babysitter really works! We have helped thousands of Australian parents find perfect nanny or babysitter for their family. Here’s what they had to say:
"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."
"Very impressed with your Find A Babysitter. I am a mother of 3, work 6 days a week and once I added my job to your site within 15 minutes I had an applicant and within 2 days I had 57 applicants. I felt it was only fair that the first applicant which applied was interviewed and she is great!! She is a primary school teacher, is well presented, honest and reliable. Thankyou so much for your business. You are a lifesaver!!"
"Maddy came round this afternoon and my little girl who hasn't had a babysitter outside family for a few years, loved her and wants her to come back. The website has worked for me as I am new to Perth and don't have any family or babysitting contacts"
"A very good way to connect parents and carers. Well organised and useful."
"I was really happy with Find A Babysitter. The quality of people I got were amazing! The notification alerts of carers to suit my requirements was a great help. My nanny started officially on her own today and it looks like I have made a fantastic choice. Thanks so much. To be honest I hope I do not need your services anytime soon, however if I do, Find A Babysitter would be the first and only site I would use again if required."
"We made an offer to an absolutely beautiful nanny yesterday, I cannot speak highly enough of the Find A Babysitter website and its functionality! The site was an absolute god send and the quality of the nannies I interviewed was outstanding."
"We are very happy with our new carer (Zoe) who picks up my daughter from preschool and spends a lovely couple of hours either playing at the park or in the backyard. It's very convenient as she loves nearby and is also flexible with days. It's a win-win situation."
"I have used the Find A Babysitter website since 2007 and have found 3 wonderful nannies from this site. I highly recommend it."
"I have employed a number of nannies over the past 14 years for my three girls (via newspaper advertisements, general employment websites, nanny agencies, universities). This is the first time that I have used your website - it is definitely the best method by far! I found an excellent nanny within a couple of weeks. The site is particularly good as you can search for candidates that meet your specific requirements/location/availability etc and you can deal directly with your preferred candidates after initial contact. Well done to all involved."

You understood that and gave me a way to obtain lots of enquiries about the position I advertised and easy to use and efficient tools to communicate with applicants, compare applicants and, really very quickly, to hire a wonderful carer for my son! AWESOME!"
"Through your site, I found a wonderful warm caring and intelligent young woman to look after my 5 year old daughter, who has a developmental delay. Our carer was perfect - studying teaching nearby and with a focus on special needs. Thank you. She is now a regular visitor to our house."

"Recently joined Find a Babysitter & am very happy I did. Found a wonderful babysitter within 24 hours of posting my ad. Was pleasantly surprised that we found the right sitter so quickly as the hours we require care are very early in the morning. We actually had 3 positive replies within the first 24 hours. Even better, our babysitters sister has now joined your great site & is our back up babysitter. They are both reliable, friendly & fun. Thanks so much for making it so easy to find a babysitter. Now both my husband & I can start work early & for us that means more time together as a family of an evening :-)"
"I love this site I have used it regularly for 4 years and it is so much better than an agency. I can honestly say that it has changed my life by making great nannies accessible. Thank you! Hopefully I won't need it again too soon ;-)"
"I have used Find A Babysitter on two occasions when returning to work after maternity leave. The first time was to find a nanny for our then 18 month old girl and then further down the track, when I was returning to work after having our second child and my girls were 4 and 1. Each time we found fantastic, reliable, loving (but firm) nannies that became part of our family for the time that they were with us. Our current nanny is due to have her first child in December, so I will subscribe again shortly and start my search again. I have recommended Find A Babysitter to many work colleagues and friends over the past 4 years."
"The responses we received were excellent and far superior to another on-line outfit we tried at the same time. We are very happy with the nanny we selected, and fingers crossed we won't need to use your site again for a while!"
"I've found the Find A Babysitter website easy to use from Day 1 and found Jessica almost immediately - which was a life saver with 6-mth old twins at the time! I've recommended the site to heaps of friends since then. It's a great initiative and I wish you luck for continued success."

"I wish to say a big thank you for this service has been a god send, I had placed four ads in the papers and only had two responses, since I placed my advert with your website yesterday I have had so many girls return with a response and I had a interview with a girl today and hired her. So Thank you for such a wonderful easy service you have provided."
"I just wanted to say thanks for such a great service in matching nannies to families! We interviewed 3 nannies, and have found one that suits us very well. Thanks again!"
"I was extremely happy with the service that Find A Babysitter provided and liked the way that I was in control of searching for a person who was just right for us - unlike when you hire an agency (for some ridiculous cost!!). I have been telling all my friends with children about your site and will continue to do so."
"We have been incredibly happy with the service from FAB. We needed to find someone over one weekend and were amazed to have 10 people apply for the position, many of which were very suitable. It was actually easy. We love our new nanny and most importantly our kids love her."

"Just wanted to let you know that this year I have had a great success in finding someone to care for our children before and after school hours. You offer what seems to be an unique but much needed service. Thank goodness!"
