How the site works
findababysitter.com.au is a babysitter and nanny job site.

It is NOT an employment agency and we are NOT involved in any employment or other relationship between Parents, babysitters and nannies. We have not vetted, and we do not recommend, Babysitters and Nannies listed on the site. Parents are wholly responsible for all aspects of contacting, screening, selecting and employing a Babysitter and Nanny.

We are not responsible for the conduct of any member of the site, either online or offline.
