Hi there :) I'm a bubbly, caring and enthusiastic person who is looking for some nanny/babysitting jobs. I am currently available 7 days a week. I am a full time musician with a background in educational support. In 2018, I completed a Certificate IV in Educational Support through TAFE NSW. I have a passion for education and personal experience teaching and dealing with the needs of children with various learning and physical disabilities as well as through family with autism, OCD and Tourette’s syndrome. I began singing and performing at a young age through various mediums; musical theatre, cabaret and tribute shows. Completing several cruise ship contracts, touring Australia with my original band, and performing on a regular basis, at corporate functions and in theatres around Australia and the UK.

6 families and businesses in your area recommended Courtney...
"I really appreciated Courtney's availability on short notice and her willingness to step into the role of caring for my boys. Her experience as a learning support teacher came in handy as my son has ASD and she was able to connect with him really well. Both boys reported a positive experience having Courtney over, and I really appreciated her calm, relaxed and positive demeanour as she tackled the babysitting task with ease. Thank you Courtney :) "
From Alison - Beverly Hills
"Courtney is very easy going and confident and my kids instantly warmed to her. She was such a great help in the mornings getting my 3 kids ready and commute with them via public transport to school this year as I had to leave early for work. She is very patient and calm and took excellent care of my 5 year old boy with special needs. I do not hesitate to recommend her to any family that wish to have a nanny or babysitter in future. "
From Christina - Croydon
"This was our first time using a nanny and Courtney was simply magic. She is a relaxed and chilled-out person and the entire family (even the usually shy 5 year old!) was quickly at ease with her. Courtney was amazing with my daughter and treated her - as we wanted - as her number 1 priority. I give Courtney 2 thumbs up and 5 stars. Very happy to recommend her for anyone looking. "
From Arti - Concord West
"Courtney is a caring babysitter. Her background in musical theatre and drama means she has energy and spark. She assisted with my child’s homework, played board games and played soccer so my high energy 8 year old was kept busy I will definitely ask her back "
From Deborah - Earlwood
"Courtney was professional, and very comfortable with our 11 month old boy. She was able to get him through his night time routine easily, despite the fact that he can sometimes be a handful. :)"
