  • Maintaining a safe environment

  • Preparing meals and feeding the children

  • Bathing and dressing

  • Organising outings and playdates

  • Cleaning up after the child

  • Children’s laundry

Tracy, Port Macquarie

“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.”
