I’m a teaching assistant at a local primary school where I work in Kindergarten and years 1 & 2 from 9am until 1:30 each day. Im available for afternoon or evenings for babysitting, school pickups, sports drops or tutoring or evening and weekend babysitting. Thanks!

"Dearna was just wonderful with our little girl. She was thoughtful and patient, and even sang her lulabys to get her to sleep. We will be using Dearna as our regular baby sitter from now on. We would highly recommend her."
From April - Malabar
"Dearna was wonderful. Great communication, punctual and friendly. She was unflappable even with our extremely overtired, overstimulated toddler and cuddled our baby for hours when he woke looking for mum. "
From Alison - Malabar
"Dearna was lovely and warm with our 9 month old boy. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with her and she was very perceptive to what he was interested in and wanted to play with. "
