Simone was great once again very good with my son

Stacey W .       January 2021

Simone was great. She arrived early and was great with our two kids (3yo and 18 months). She brought some arts and crafts with her which really helped the kids bond with her quickly, she read them books that she brought - they loved it! She also gave us regular updates so we were able to enjoy our night out knowing that the kids were being taken care of. Will definitely use her again! :-)

Great!

Kirsty S .       February 2020

Simone was great, which I particularly appreciate as I’d only organised less than 24 hours before.
Honestly super easy, Simone arrived early, I felt like she understood my 3 year olds bedtime routine/ nuances, and she interacted well and quickly with my boy. She provided updates over the evening, which I appreciated. Would definitely use again :)

Shannon W .       February 2020

Simone was great and and the boys both really enjoyed their afternoon with her. She was also very accommodating when we needed to extend our booking by an hour. We would definitely use Simone again in the future.

Isobel B .       January 2020

Really friendly and laid back. We felt secure leaving our kids with Simone. She didn’t need any guidance really, just got right in there. We’ve already booked in our next job.

Andrea S .       January 2020

Our three children loved Simone right from the moment she arrived to our hotel, especially our youngest 20mth old who usually bangs on the bedroom door while we are trying to get ready to leave - not this time Simone kept her occupied with books she had brought with her and later on our older kids had fun playing card games with Simone that she also had with her. Highly recommend- Simone has such a kind nature and a natural rapport with children.

Jenny J .       January 2020

Simone was fantastic. Arrived early and spent all afternoon doing activities with the kids. Would recommend. Thanks

Candice L .       December 2019

First time using an app to find a baby sitter, but we couldn’t have been happier with our experience
We loved Simone!
She walked in and just knew exactly where to be and what to do.
Arrived on time.
Will definitely be hiring her again!

Simone is fantastic! Very experienced and professional. She looked after our 4 months old boy and 5 year old daughter while we went out for a birthday dinner in the city. Everything went smoothly, my daughter had a great time doing art and craft with Simone, drawing, reading books... I also appreciated Simone's updates via SMS that all was good (I didn't have to ask). We will definitely book her again. Highly recommended!*****

Came to Melbourne for the AFL Grand Final and needed a sitter for my girls (1 and 4) and my parents were away. Simone was great. She took my girls to the Aquarium and they had heaps of fun. They loved her and my youngest even had a nap! Will book again when in town.

Brenton M .       September 2018

Simone was amazing looking after our 5 month old daughter. She arrived ahead of schedule and kept us updated while we were out and about. I hope to use Simone again when we return to Melbourne.

Lucy S .       August 2018

Simone was so friendly and fantastic with my kids. Her texts throughout the night giving me updates was also very reassuring, making me feel at ease. Will definitely use Simone again if we come back to Melbourne again. Thanks Simone!

Thanks so much Simone. Our kids loved their time with you and took to you instantly. We got to relax at the wedding knowing they were having fun with you. They both woke up this morning and said they had the best day. Thanks again.

Katrina M .       February 2018

Very happy,visiting Melbourne on holidays and would use Simone again next time. Simone was lovely and my son very quickly warmed to her that we could make a quick exit. She sent me text message updates and I felt at ease. Thanks Simone.

Erika B .       December 2017

Simone was very capable of handling our two wild girls for a one-off session when we were in Melbourne on holiday. She played with them, fed them and got them into bed. We would book Simone again if we return to Melbourne.

Amy H .       December 2017

Simone was wonderful! We had every bit of trust in her with our two kids (aged 4 and 1) for two evenings whilst we were on holidays in Melbourne. Simone was confident, warm and friendly, our daughter was thrilled that she came back a second night to play and tuck them in at night.

Joanne I .       September 2017

Simone was very easy going and wonderful. I'm happy to have her babysit again :-)

Our three year old enjoyed her evening with Simone and was comfortable enough with her to be sound asleep when we arrived home
