NEW! 5pm Saturday "changeover".
Start Date:22 Jan 22 Applications Close:01 Mar 22
Posted by Bronwyn a day ago
Job Details: Casual Babysitting
Are you available at 5pm on Saturdays?
I am looking for someone to do a "changeover" for my sweet little three year old boy at Petersham park each Saturday. The changeover will take about 10-15 minutes and I will pay $50 per changeover.
You will be the right person if you are older than 25 years of age, calm, responsible, and OK working in a slightly awkward situation.
In brief, my son spends Saturday with his dad, but I don't think it is a good idea for the parents to come in contact because that can lead to rude words and/or conflict in front of the little boy. I need someone to meet the Dad at Petersham park, then hold the boys hand and walk five minutes around the corner to return the boy to me. You will need to arrive at 4.55pm on Saturday and be prepared to wait 10-20 minutes if the Dad is late (he is usually on time).
I will understand if some Saturdays you might not be available, but I need someone who is available at least 75% of time, and clearly communicates with me when they are not available.
Usually this job only takes 10-15 minutes, but I pay $50 per changeover because while the Dad is sometimes calm and polite, at other times he is rude. In the past he has done things such as giving people the "silent treatment", ie. not saying hello when he meets you, or throwing a hat on the ground when he didn't want it. If you think you can handle this, you might be the person I'm really searching for!
More than happy to answer any questions so you can think about if this job is the right fit for you. Just email me and we'll make a time to talk.
Thank you <3
My kids Theodore (4 yrs old in feb) & Harriet (1.5 years) are normal little kids that both love doing activities and having fun.
Im flexible with a start date but am looking for ongoing Thursday & Fridays for the day while Im at work.
Harriet still has a nap in the middle of the day for 2-3 hours.
They go to daycare mon-wed so are well socialised.
Please let me know if you would like any more info.
The role involves looking after our 5.5 and 2.5 year old girls. It will be for 16 hours a week, Mon-Thurs 2-6pm (can be slightly flexible with hours but not days) and also involve light housework such as dinner prep and folding washing. Generally our Nanny has completed light housework at home for an hour or so then collected the girls for playground, come home time/time out, dinner and bath.
The 5.5 yo starts Kindergarten this year and 2.5 is in daycare – walking distance from our place. Our current nanny has been with us for three years and is leaving to start her full-time career as a teacher. She would be happy to speak with the successful applicant about her time with our family.
We live within walking distance of Parramatta Road bus stops, Stanmore train station and close to USYD and UTS city campuses.
The role is a permanent part-time role. The Nanny will be covered by workers’ compensation, accrue annual lave and sick leave and our rate is $33p/h plus superannuation.

Our family is in need of a nanny for our sweet 5 month old baby boy, Oscar (6 months by start date).
Ideally someone near Leichhardt who is experienced, reliable, trustworthy and fun.
We both work mostly from home and so will be close by most of the time. We’re wanting someone to be able to give Oscar their full attention to play, read, go on walks, feed, cuddle and put him down for naps, while we work.
(Mum runs her own company and dad is in consulting)
It would be ideal that you can be flexible with times and days (as we can be), available for occasional night time babysitting/appointments and open to domestic travel if needed.
Hoping for 2 mornings per week to start (10am - 2pm approx, Tuesday’s and flexible for either Wednesday or Thursday), building onto this as we all become more comfortable — you’ll be his first ever carer other than his parents.
We’d love someone happy to do light housekeeping during any naps, small errands, shopping etc (when on walks).
We have a large but very friendly Labrador, so dog lover a must.
It would be a bonus if you speak Italian or another language and love music.
If you think you'd be a good match, please apply.
