Hi parents! I have six years experience as a primary school dance teacher, teaching at preschools and primary schools around Sydney and in the Kids Clubs on cruise ships. I also worked as a high school basketball and netball coach for three years. I have regularly cared for my niece who is now 2 years old from when she was a new born- so I’m confident with babies. I'm always keen to babysit anytime on the weekends and on Friday nights.

Parent Reviews

9 families in your area recommended Portia...
"Portia was wonderful with our 16 month old son - from the moment she arrived she put us at ease for our first night away with a non-family babysitter. Immediately playing with him and kept him distracted while we left so there were no tears. She texted to let us know once he was asleep which was appreciated. Will definitely ask Portia to babysit again! "
From Kristen - Paddington

Special Needs Experience

I don’t have formal special needs training, however I was a weekly volunteer at Danceability Australia for a year before being offered the choreographer position. This organisation taught me hands on skills.

Childcare Experience

I have been babysitting for seven years and have been teaching dance for six years (preschool - high school aged kids).I have also worked for 3 years as a kids basketball & netball coach. I was also the head choreographer at Danceability Australia in 2018. I have regularly cared for my niece who is now 12 months old from when she was an infant so I’m confident with babies.
