Parent Reviews

16 families in your area recommended Kerrie...
"Kerrie was simply brilliant, she walked straight in and started engaging and playing with the children, they loved her. She was unphased by sibling rivalry, and an adventurous toddler, and allowed us to have 4 hours to ourselves for the first time in years. They played games, did craft, and she gave them dinner and washed up. We felt the kids were in completely safe hands and were really grateful. Highly recommended!"
From Susanna - Freshwater
"Kerrie is by far the best babysitter we have ever had. From the moment she arrived, she took complete control of giving the kids dinner, confirming the nightly routine and giving me time to get ready to go out. When we arrived home, the kids were sound asleep, the house was immaculately clean and Kerrie had even cleaned and folded my washing. Kerrie is an absolute dream and I can’t recommend her highly enough."
From Sophie - Hawthorne
"Kerrie is absolutely fantastic! She was a modern day Mary Poppins and my children warmed to her almost immediately (which is no mean feat). She has a lovely demeanour, engages beautifully with the children, obviously has good common sense & leaves the place spotless. When she left, my son asked when she was coming back! I felt very comfortable with Kerrie looking after my two rats!"
From Helena - Manly
"Kerrie was great with our 16 month old - she's clearly a natural with kids! The two of them quickly became buddies and Kerrie made herself busy with a few jobs around the house during naptime which was a lovely little bonus. Definitely hope to rebook her in the future. Thanks Kerrie!"
From Josie - Seaforth
"Kerrie was an absolute super star! The kids loved her, they packed in dinner, a bath, making school lunches, reading books and a puzzle into only 2 hours. Oh, and she’d packed away ALL of the clean dishes from earlier that day. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. "
From Andie - North Manly
"Kerri was engaging and made me feel at ease. As We were a little rushed, Kerrie immediately took over, tidied up for the night and checked back in throughout the night. Happy girls is always a good sign."
From Tamara - Mosman
"Kerri was amazing from start to finish. Put our minds instantly at rest & let us know during the night when Emily had gone to bed. We will probably go out more often just so we can use Kerri again !"
From Greig - Manly
"Poor Hen has had a very disrupted two weeks with travel and visitors so he was a little out of sorts. Kerrie handled it all very well and took it all in her stride. We’d love to have Kerrie back "
From Emma - Manly

Childcare Experience

I have many years of babysitting my little brothers and sister since they were born in the UK. Saffie is now 21 year old, Pete is 11 and twins Demi and Edward who are 7. I have two Nephews Archie who is 9 and Jay who is 8. My best friends have babies of all ages that I often look after to either give them a couple of hours to get tasks done, or overnight so they can enjoy a well deserved evening out/few glasses of wine without any worry. I have a hands on style, I appreciate that with the juggle of kiddies there are other tasks that you cannot always get around too! I often pop on a wash, do the washing up/empty the dishwasher when then kids are asleep to help you out too :-) happy to help. I am confident with children of all ages and have been told I have a warm and inviting approach with little ones. I try to encourage a fun and supportive focus to ensure tasks such as brushing teeth get done :-)
