What to Do in Newcastle

Every family is unique, and providing quality care means getting to know what each parent wants from their babysitting service. Some parents would prefer the babysitter is caring for their children at home. But if a whole day is being spent with the sitter, it can be fun to take the kids out on an adventure. Make sure the parents have provided permission and understand the plans so that everyone is comfortable.

“Thank you SitClique for organising a babysitter for us last night! Georgina was lovely and our boys adored her! The whole process was very easy!”

Tracy, SitClique Parent

“I recently attended a SitClique meet & greet. Such a great idea & it was so reassuring to be able to meet the sitters (& for them to meet parents!). I felt comfortable enough & happy to book our first non-family babysitter ever and the whole process was so straight forward. 

The babysitter was exceptional, I left for an evening out feeling relaxed & my kids absolutely loved spending time with their babysitter. Thank you SitClique.”
