Emergency Babysitters

Our emergency babysitters are the ideal solution for immediate childcare needs. Whether you require short-term support to tackle a busy day or dedicated care during school holidays, our emergency temporary nannies are here to help. We understand that life can get hectic, and that’s why our reliable and professional babysitters are available at a moment’s notice.

In addition to assisting local families, we also cater to visitors from overseas or out of town who want to make their holidays seamless and enjoyable. By engaging in our services, parents can explore their destination without the hassle of taking care of little ones. We ensure your children are in capable hands, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the experience.

Furthermore, our temporary nannies are well-suited for special events such as weddings and corporate functions. With their expertise and dependable care, you can focus on the occasion knowing that your children are in safe hands.

Unlike our overnight babysitters who primarily work during the evenings, our emergency babysitters come from diverse backgrounds such as temporary or permanent nannies, teachers, and daycare workers. By day, they fulfil their professional roles, and in their spare time, they provide exceptional emergency childcare services.

For your convenience, our babysitters are available for bookings of a minimum of 3 hours a day. Whether you need a one-off arrangement or require their services for a fixed-term period of up to three months, our flexible options ensure you can find the support you need.

Unlike many other nanny & babysitting services, we do the hard work for you and ALL of our nannies are interviewed and thoroughly vetted through an extensive process of qualification, background and reference checks before being considered for a position with our agency. Our Lovely Nannies have a formal childcare qualification and experience or at least two years of paid experience working with children, as well as meeting these additional Australian Nanny Association requirements:

  • Working with Children Check (WWCC) or QLD Blue Card;
  • Current First Aid certification;
  • Excellent English; and
  • Impeccable references.

And importantly, our nannies LOVE working with little people. We hear time and time again from our clients that our nannies are absolutely adored by their children. This is what we’re all about!
