We are very fortunate to receive such beautiful testimonials from our clients regarding our Babysitting Services.
the booking was easy and thorough, she immediately put our minds at ease, she got him to bed without fuss and we were able to relax at the Wedding all night, we found South Coast Nannies and our Nanny Alex wonderful to deal with, highly recommend
We were extremely happy with the service and our Nanny Alex. The booking was easy and thorough and I could add all the details of the day and about our son into the document. Alex contacted us prior to the day and we felt comfortable with her from the start. Having her photo on the booking sheet was great as we gave that to Troy saying this was his special friend for the day and he was excited.
On the day she met us at the venue, she immediately put our minds at ease that he was going to be looked after properly. She changed him into his Wedding clothes and helped keep his occupied and clean until the photos. She then drove him back to our accommodation and sent us updates throughout the day with photos too. She got him to bed without fuss and we were able to relax at the Wedding all night.
First thing Troy said to us when he woke up was “Where’s Alex” which touched our hearts. Even yesterday (over a week later) he asked where’s Alex again as she obviously made a great impression with him.
We found South Coast Nannies and our Nanny Alex wonderful to deal with we would highly recommend them to anyone 🙂 Amanda – Gerringong 24/04/2021

Nanny Carol was amazing, most amazing care of my son, could not recommend Carol and the South Coast Nanny team more
Nanny Carol was amazing! She arrived early and took the most amazing care of my son. When we returned home he was fast asleep for the night – could not recommend Carol and the South Coast Nanny team more – 20/10 for service!

were a wonderful team, immediately taking under their wing a large group of children, we were able to enjoy our evening without worry
Klara and Emily were a wonderful team – immediately taking under their wing a large group of children ranging in age from 1 – 10 and making the time spent a lot of fun. The kids had a ball and, with occasional updates from Klara, we were able to enjoy our evening without worry. We are very grateful.
Lucinda – Huskisson – 24/04/2021

We couldn’t be happier with the Nanny provided to us by South Coast Nannies and we will definitely be using the service again in the future. Reliable, punctual, caring and most of all the kids had fun and gave their happy stamp of approval!!
Prue – Broulee – 22/04/2021
really happy with the communication before and during, and after,v ery straightforward, will most definitely book again in the future
Hannah was lovely – it was both our first time using the SCN services and after many disappointing experiences with freelance babysitters, I was really happy with the communication before and during, and after.
Very straightforward and Hannah did well and was flexible with the time we came home. Will most definitely book again in the future.
Jade – Mt Warrigal – 17/04/2021
worried how he would go as he has never been with a baby sitter before, Maree was amazing, kept me updated, it was a blessing, highly recommend
We had Maree babysit our baby boy who is 19 months old, while we attended a wedding. Maree came to our hotel room and had a bag full of toys, my little boy was so taken with all the trains and cars and didn’t even notice us leaving. We were worried how he would go as he has never been with a baby sitter before.
Maree was amazing, she messaged me photos of him playing, and told me throughout the night what he was doing, when he had gone to sleep and kept me updated while he was sleeping. It was a blessing, I was at ease and my husband and i could enjoy our night. Maree even wrote us a little letter of the events of the whole time she had him, when I returned to the room. I highly recommend South Coast Nannies and we are so grateful for everything Maree did.
Sarah – Bowral – 10/04/21
had a wonderful time, she brought books and craft material and kept them well entertained
Our two boys had a wonderful time with the babysitter Jane, she brought books and craft material and kept them well entertained. When we are next in the area we will definitely be booking again.
Orla – Bowral – 01/04/21
I felt instantly comforted by her, it was good to have a little brief and photo, confident
The South Coast Nanny service was brilliant and we found them to be extremely professional. They placed Skye with us which was a perfect fit. She was prompt and professional and looked after our girls as she would her own. She kept in contact with us through the day and evening and made us feel comfortable and confident leaving our girls in her care. I would definitely use this service again and request Skye again as well.
Tracy – Bowral – 01/04/2021
she was amazing, it was a little daunting leaving my children, he is still asking for her nearly 2 weeks after the wedding, my 6 year old girl absolutely adored Jo
Couldn’t recommend Joanne highly enough. She was amazing! I used South Coast Nannies for my sister’s wedding, not from the area so it was a little daunting leaving my children with someone I wasn’t familiar with. Also I haven’t left my 2 year old with anyone except my mother. Joanne was able to form a relationship with him after spending a day/ evening with him. He doesn’t say many words but he is able to say ‘JoJo’ he is still asking for her nearly 2 weeks after the wedding. My 6 year old girl absolutely adored Jo as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to use South coast Nannies again and I’d love to have Jo babysit again.
Sarah – Kiama – 09/04/2021
my husband and I were able to enjoy a child free Sunday afternoon knowing the children were cared for and kept busy, certainly seek out these services again,
Thanks Maree and South Coast Nannies, my husband and I were able to enjoy a child free Sunday afternoon knowing the children were cared for and kept busy. Maree even brought an Easter craft pack each for them which was a really lovely touch. Will certainly seek out these services again, hopefully in the near future!
Melinda – Nowra – 28/03/2021
first time, were a little apprehensive, we were instantly put at ease with her amazing kind, engaging and confident nature, was incredibly easy to book
It was the first time we’ve ever had our sons babysat by someone we didn’t know and were a little apprehensive. But as soon as we met Robyn we were instantly put at ease with her amazing kind, engaging and confident nature. It was incredibly easy to book and we enjoyed having a chat to Robyn on the phone prior to the day.
Brianna – Bowral – 10/04/2021
a wonderful experience, we immediately warmed to her on the phone and in person, South Coast Nannies were helpful and very professional to deal with from the start, matched Chloe perfectly with our family
We had a wonderful experience recently with Chloe and South Coast Nannies. We have four kids ranging in age from 10 years down to 2 years old and Chloe arrived with games and ideas for all to enjoy. Chloe was engaging and fun and we immediately warmed to her on the phone and in person. The kids had a lovely time and we thoroughly enjoyed are evening too! South Coast Nannies were helpful and very professional to deal with from the start. They matched Chloe perfectly with our family and we’d both recommend and use them again without hesitation.
Alexandra – Bangalay Villa Resort – Shoalhaven Heads 10/04/2021
we had a great week in Batemans Bay, was wonderful with Ethan, she was also always on time, respectful, and communicative
Just wanted to let you know that we had a great week in Batemans Bay. Stacey was wonderful with Ethan! She picked up on his interests quickly and just went at his pace all week. She had great ideas for activities and really kept him engaged. She was also always on time, respectful, and communicative. We would definitely request her again.
Emily – Batemans Bay 12-16/04/2021
laughing and giggling with her even when we were leaving the room, we knew our son would be in safe hands
We were so impressed with the South Coast Nannies Babysitting Service. Robyn babysat our 5 month old son while we were at a wedding. She instantly had a warm and friendly rapport with our son and he was laughing and giggling with her even when we were leaving the room. Robyn was thorough with his bed time routine and even managed to settle him before we normally could. We knew our son would be in safe hands with Robyn and were glad to receive the updates on when he settled and see he was peacefully asleep when we came home. Would definitely use again and recommend to others!
Kylie – Peppers Manor House Sutton Forest – 27/03/2021
so impressed by their communication, professionalism and promptness, I could relax knowing my 5 month old daughter was in capable hands, would definitely use this service again
I highly recommend South Coast Nannies. I was so impressed by their communication, professionalism and promptness. Our sitter was exceptional. She was so considerate, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I knew I could relax knowing my 5 month old daughter was in capable hands. I would definitely use this service again and would request Claudine.
Lisa – Mollymook – 27/03/2021
kept us in the loop, reassured us on the way, felt completely at ease, felt completely at ease, I was able to enjoy the wedding that we were attending.
Maree was fabulous! Not only was she early, which was perfect as it allowed some time for Maree to get to know Bowie whilst we were with her. By the time we left Bowie was happy to let us go.
During the event Bowie was a little unsettled on and off, but Maree reassured us along the way and kept us in the loop of what she was doing with Bowie. Maree sent photos of them playing happily, and let us know once she was asleep. It was the first time we’d left Bowie with someone who wasn’t family and I felt completely at ease knowing that Maree was with her, so I was able to enjoy the wedding that we were attending. I couldn’t recommend her enough and thanks to South Coast nannies for connecting us.
Kate – The Cove Jervis Bay – 20/03/2021
great experience, will certainly use her or your company again when on South Coast,keeping them safe
An overall great experience. Thank you for offering us Thelma. We will certainly use her or your company again when on South Coast. Your company seems very well organised. Thank you very much for looking after our little ones and keeping them safe.
Katherine – Nowra – 27/02/2021
we were a little nervous, she fit right in with our children, amazing, absolutely astounded with the service
This was our first time using the South Coast Nannies service and we were a little nervous.
From the moment Nannie Skye walked through the door the conversation was flowing and she fit right in with our children. Skye was an amazing woman with a bright and bubbly personality. Our children both took to her easily and have continued to ask us when she can come back again. Skye provided great feedback about the night and took a flexible approach to the routines we had in place; we couldn’t be happier.
Absolutely astounded with the service we were provided with and are looking forward to having Skye back again!
Rebecca – Dapto – 19/12/2020
was a brilliant service, asked details about the children’s interests and routines, felt completely confident in her abilities
South Coast Nannies was a brilliant service we used when visiting Berry for a family wedding. The service was prompt, supportive and professional. Marnie was lovely with our 2 children and they enjoyed the 7 hours in her care. We would certainly use this service again. Marnie contacted us prior to the date and asked details about the children’s interests and routines. I felt completely confident in her abilities. Thank you South Coast Nannies!
Michelle – Berry – 27/02/2021
attended a wedding on the south coast, confident and caring, she had everything under control
We required a babysitter to care for our kids while we attended a wedding on the South Coast. This meant we were entrusting a stranger with the care of our 3 children (8, 6 and 3), so we were a little nervous. Thankfully, Chloe was a delight – she arrived 5 minutes early and immediately gave us the impression that she was confident and caring. Chloe listened to our instructions intently and then began playing with the kids and engaging all three of them. She sent a couple of messages while we were out, updating us on their activities, and another once the kids were asleep. When we arrived back, she had everything under control – the kids were asleep and the house was tidy (which we did not expect her to do). We were very pleased with Chloe’s care. Thank you.
Katherine – Gerringong – 19/12/2020
exceptional nanny, always feel completely at ease, very grateful to have care arranged so quickly
Klara is an exceptional nanny. My girls adore Klara and are always delighted to spend time with her. Klara provides the perfect mix of love, boundaries and routine, and I always feel completely at ease when the kids are in her care. I rang only the day before I required care, as I became quite unwell and my husband was away. I was so very grateful to have care arranged so quickly from South Coast Nannies. I couldn’t recommend South Coast Nannies and Klara highly enough and thank them for their support and service since we moved to the area.
Amy – Bomaderry – 21/10/2020
match the right person who effortlessly managed the day, kept us well informed during her service
We were very happy with South Coast Nannies. It was lovely to be able to talk to someone straight up about our needs as we had two kiddies and there were also 3 dogs. You were able to match the right person who effortlessly managed the day. Maree was punctual, friendly and kept us well informed during her service. We have booked Maree again for October, this time minus the dogs.
Linda – Brundee – 04/07/2020
fun time and enjoyed company, thorough, fabulous, matching our family
Thank you again so much for arranging for Sarah to mind out two boys last night. They had a fun time and enjoyed her company. It was so lovely to get a date night with my husband and our dear friends. It was probably the first time since covid last March that we have been out without our boys and had some “us” time. Sarah was very thorough, on time and was fabulous to deal with. Thank you for matching her to our family.
Stephanie – Wollongong – 15/01/2021
we were on holiday, fully prepared with toys, the kids loved you, thank you maree
Thank you Maree for babysitting my 2 boys on two different occasions while we were on holiday. You came fully prepared with toys and your experience with children was obvious from the get go. The kids loved you and you managed to get them to sleep before we got home! Miracle.
Olivia – Wollamia – 30/12/2020
is the best nanny we have ever had, professional, courteous, report on how our little one did
Quite honestly, Klara who is a nanny at this company is the best nanny we have ever had. Professional, courteous and a lovely person. Full report on how our little one did each day and full care and notes taken. Thanks for everything South Coast Nannies.
Aaron – Narrawallee – 22/01/2021
understanding of children’s needs, calm and caring, easy to communicate with and very professional
I’ve used South Coast Nannies a couple of times now when we go and stay at my parents in Jamberoo.
Recently, we had Alex babysit 4 kids, aged 4 – 8. Alex was great, so understanding of children’s needs, she came armed with arts and crafts. She was very calm and caring when there would have been some arguments amongst the cousins.
They are very easy to communicate with and very professional. We will definitely use the service again.
Kate – Jambaroo – 11/07/2020
I felt instantly comforted by her, it was good to have a little brief and photo, confident
Emylia was great and I felt instantly comforted by her and could tell she’s had a lot of experience. Our kids had a few tears when we left but Emylia was confident so we knew they were in good hands. South Coast Nannies were great when we made the booking. And it was good to have a little brief and photo of the Emylia before she babysat. Thanks!
Jenny – Vincentia – 06/07/2020
she was so sweet with my baby, she was kind and lovely, highly recommend South Coast Nannies
Joanne was incredible!!! She was so sweet with my baby and put me at ease straight away! I had never left my baby with a stranger in her entire life so it was really frightening for me but Joanne was so great with Amalia. She was also a sleep consultant which made me feel so much better about her being able to manage if Amalia woke up. She was kind and lovely and I highly recommend South coast nannies. It was worth every penny and I felt so relaxed leaving her. Thank you!!
Aley – Kangaroo Valley – 01/12/2019
very kind and calm, felt comfortable, the booking process was seamless
Fiona looked after our 11month old daughter on our wedding night. She was very kind and calm and I felt comfortable about leaving my daughter with her. She has a lot of experience looking after babies and I could not recommend her more highly. The booking process was seamless too.
Clare – Bamarang – 28/11/2020
within 5 minutes Mel had completely put our minds at rest, friendly, recommend
Mel was fantastic. This was the first time we had left our daughter and were naturally nervous. Within 5 minutes, Mel had completely put our minds at rest and we felt at ease. She was friendly and knowledgeable and keen to understand our daughters routine. I would certainly recommend Nanny Mel to anybody and look forward to using her again in the future.
David – Berry – 11/12/2019
fantastic, lovely and professional, we would always use the service again
The nanny you provided was fantastic. Such a lovely and professional girl. We would always use the service again.
David – Mittagong – 11/07/2020
made it feel like she was family, prepared, my boys are still speaking about her
We had Maree take care of our boys on Saturday night. She was absolutely fantastic!!! I cannot thank her enough. This was the first time they had been left with someone who was not family and she honestly made it feel like she was family.
She was early, came prepared with a heap of toys, books and craft. The boys absolutely loved this. I sent a few messages and she promptly replied putting me at ease! The entire experience was just wonderful and my boys are still speaking about her days on!!
I am so grateful and happy!! Thank you so much Maree and South Coast Nannies! Looking forward to being able to use you again!!!
Brooke – Worrowing – 07/12/2019
she swept our daughter up into her arms, built rapport and connection, recommend to any friends or family
Lisa looked after our daughter (1 year old) so we could attend a family wedding. From the moment Lisa arrived she swept our daughter up into her arms and kept her entertained while we finished getting ready for the wedding. Throughout the night Lisa sent photos and updates (every hour) on how our daughter was going. Our daughter looked very happy and settled. Lisa was what we were hoping for in a babysitter; friendly, kind, fun, built rapport and connection with the family and overall enjoyed spending time with our daughter.
South Coast Nannies was very easy to communicate with. I would use this service again and recommend to any friends or family staying in the Southern Highlands region. Thank you Lisa!
Marion – Bowral – 29/11/2019
both my girls bonded, she was above and beyond any expectation we had!,
Our experience was unique in that we were traveling from the US and had no idea of who could watch our two girls (Ages 5 & 2) while we attended a kid-less wedding! South coast Nannies was recommended to us and we were so impressed with the info on the site and reviews.
We were placed with Nenita and she was above and beyond any expectation we had! She was so kind and has a very sweet, caring disposition—both in person and over the phone. She was understanding of the personalities of my girls and came prepared with activities and projects to keep them occupied in the hotel room. My girls couldn’t wait to show we all the crafts they made and the special toys Nenita brought with her! Nenita communicated with us how/when the girls ate and gave us all the specifics of their evening. Both my girls bonded with Nenita in those few hours, they cried as she was leaving. As a mother/teacher that is all I could ask for!
Diana – Bowral – 01/11/2019
they had such a lovely time, had such confidence, what a treasure is Fiona
What a treasure is Fiona. We left our precious girl with a stranger for the first time and had such confidence in Fiona that we didn’t worry at all. She sent us photos throughout the day and evening to update us. They had such a lovely time. We highly recommend South Coast Nannies and Fiona.
Mignon – Kangaroo Valley 06/10/2019
wonderful, just great with my daughter and very reassuring, sent regular updates and photos
Emylia was wonderful and we would definitely recommend her. I was not used to leaving my 1 year old, especially before bed time, but Emylia was just great with my daughter and very reassuring and knew what she was doing. She sent regular updates and photos so my partner and I felt completely reassured whilst we were at the wedding. Also, she was great at communication prior to her booking. We hope to have the chance to use Emylia again in the future!
Michelle – Kangaroo Valley – 23/11/2019
she was fantastic, kids warmed to her straight away, definitely recommend your service
Thank you so much for arranging for Maree to come and look after Harry, Finn, Hugo and Evie for us on Saturday night. She was fantastic. She brought a big bag of games and the kids warmed to her straight away! It really enabled my brother and I to enjoy the night. Please pass on our thanks to Maree. I would definitely recommend your service to anyone else attending an event on the South Coast! Thanks
Jemma – Numbaa – 02/11/2019
great with the boys straight away, I received updates all through the night, eldest son gave her a thumbs up
Robyn was great. She rang a couple of days prior to introduce herself, arrived on time and was great with the boys straight away they felt comfortable with her. She also brought a box of goodies to play with which was great. I received updates all through the night and all went very smoothly. Received a verbal and written update on what happened which was fabulous. In the morning my eldest son gave her a thumbs up and the youngest said he had a great time. Fabulous service from start to finish :0)
Amy – Hill Top – 18/10/2019
immediately felt at ease, Lottie had the best time, my husband and I both remarked that she was the best babysitter
We were so impressed with Lisa! She arrived and we immediately felt at ease leaving Lottie for the evening. She planned so many fun activities and craft things for them to do and safe to say Lottie had the best time.
She left a run sheet detailing everything and kept us updated throughout the night. My husband and I both remarked that she was the best babysitter we have ever had. Couldn’t recommend Lisa and the whole process of booking and organising more.
Erin – Kangaroo Valley – 13/12/2019
on time and was confident with our child’s allergies, good verbal handover, your service impressed us
Your service impressed us – very easy to use website, speedy reply re – emails / phone , prompts information re – staff profile. Loved the fact that she called to have a brief chat prior to the shift. Cori was on time and was confident with our child’s allergies. We had a good verbal handover. This was our first time using a nanny so we are very impressed as naturally we were nervous about someone looking after our children particularly one with life threatening allergies.
Melanie – Bellambie 14/12/2019
Klara did not miss a beat in arriving at the house, she is a super star and complete angel, my son was so happy
Klara was our chosen babysitter and she was just amazing. Our circumstances were out of the ordinary but Klara was incredible in dealing with everything that was thrown at her. We needed her to look after our 2 year old son while I was in labour with my daughter. Trouble was my son hit his head on the day of labour and split his eye open. Klara did not miss a beat in arriving at the house, getting into our spare car and following my husband to hospital with my son. She then waited with my son while my husband ran upstairs to check on me giving birth! Klara then drove my son home and looked after him while I had my daughter. She cooked for him, bathed him and got him to bed. My son was so happy playing with her, he talked about her for days to come. I could not recommend Klara highly enough. She is a super star and complete angel. I would use Klara again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Klara xx
Chrissie – Kiama – 26/06/2019
son was so excited that he was going to see Klara again!, the service you provide is amazing
Klara came to our rescue once again. My son was so excited that he was going to see Klara again! I needed help in the evenings getting my son fed and ready for bed while I looked after my newborn. My husband had to go overseas for 10 days so Klara was my angel who entertained my son and helped with bedtime. I could not have done it without her. I cannot recommend Klara highly enough and will always be forever grateful to her. I would absolutely not hesitate in requesting Klara again and the service you provide is amazing. Thank you so much once again. Xxx
Chrissie – Kiama – 23/09/2019
lovely babysitter, providing such a great Nanny and easy to use service
Janet was a lovely babysitter and our kids thoroughly enjoyed their evening with her. I would highly recommend Janet for any babysitting needs, Thanks South Coast Nannies for providing such a great Nanny and easy to use service!
Penny – Mollymook – 15/11/2019
went above and beyond to find a babysitter for us, our babysitter was lovely, kept telling us how much fun they had
South Coast Nannies went above and beyond to find a babysitter for us, thank you.
Emylia, our babysitter, was lovely. She came bearing a bag of toys and books and immediately made our children feel at ease. She messaged throughout the night keeping us up to date, while also providing photos of the children playing and having fun. The next day our children kept telling us how much fun they had with Emylia. Thank you very much!
Lucy – Narrawallee 15/11/2019
What impressed you with our service and in what ways did we make it easy for you to do business with us?
How fast and helpful you are. Friendly and relaxed, and easy to use IE payments and forms all on-line.
On-line payment details then confirmed in person over the phone and the nanny did everything you said she would.
Nanny Rachel was a wonderful babysitter, she put this first-time mum at ease and made leaving my son for the first time relaxed. She was happy to text me through the night making it easy for me to enjoy my night knowing everything was ok. She showed up on-time, had a bag of baby toys all clean and colourful. She was dressed appropriately. Having worked in childcare for many years I know a good educator when I see one, and Rachel was spot on. Highly recommend her if you are after a qualified relaxed nanny.
Prudence – Malua Bay – 20/09/2019
won over, very experienced, thrilled, right questions
Hi Melinda, I just wanted to give you some feedback for the booking below (sorry it’s a bit delayed!) Mary looked after my 6 month old and 3.8 year old a few weeks ago for 12 hours while we were at a wedding. She arrived early with a huge bucket of toys and instantly won over my oldest daughter. She was very experienced and gentle in the way she spoke to my daughter. She asked all the right questions regarding care for my 6 month old and sent me regular text messages throughout the evening so I knew that everything was ok. I was thrilled with the service Mary provided and the extensive report she gave me at the end of the night regarding their days care. If ever i traveled to the area again I would not hesitate to book Mary again. Many thanks
Abbey B – Bowral
pleased and confident, very reassured, mind was at rest, recommending
Just want to say that we were very pleased and confident with Tammie on Saturday night. She made us feel very reassured that she was fully competent and baby Isla took to her immediately. Our mind was at rest while at the wedding and would have no hesitation in recommending Tammie and your service. Thank you.
Cathie D – Mollymook
she was awesome, relaxed, kept in touch, such a good service
Loved the ease of booking a babysitter through South Coast Nannies online with a small booking fee. We had Maddy babysit for us and she was awesome, relaxed and kept in touch with us through the night. Such a good service. Will use again in the future.
Tayla s – Mollymook
above and beyond, warm, amazing, professional
Just writing a quick note to let you know that we were so impressed with the nanny, Klara, you provided us for two nights in Mollymook. She went above and beyond and was so amazing with the kids. They still can’t stop raving about her. She was prompt, professional, friendly, warm, generous, adventurous, and the perfect person to watch our kids!! Thanks so much again,
Colette Mollymook 01/04/16
happy, great nanny and kids loved her
I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Ashley. She was a great nanny and the kids (who are going through i hate nannies stage) loved her! If only she worked in Sydney I would use her all the time.
Charlotte – Wollongong
put my mind at ease, wonderful and competent
Just wanted to give you some feedback from the weekend, my boys had a wonderful time with Katie she was very competent at wrangling my 11 month old and super active 2 year old, I have to say I had a lot of anxiety about leaving the kids but she walked through the door with a big box of toys and the kids just gravitated towards her, they went for walks and played outside, did some craft and she was particularly patient with my fussy eaters trying lots of options which really put my mind at ease, throughout the afternoon/night she sent me text messages and photos of the kids and had them both asleep by 7.30pm…what a gem. Thank you Katie and South Coast Nannies for matching us with a wonderful carer.
Kylie C – Nowra 02/04/16
had everything under control, kids had fun and well looked after
I couldn’t write feedback on the night but wanted to advise that your Babysitter Christine was fabulous. We were very happy with everything Christine did. The kids had fun and made some fabulous mother’s day cards. Everything was tidied up when I got back to 2 soundly sleeping children. Christine had everything under control and we have a lovely evening knowing that the kids were being well looked after. Many thanks.
Dave – Mittagong – Southern Highlands
incredibly reassuring and professional, she was brilliant and my son was thrilled
We used the services of South Coast Nannies to mind my five year old son for the night while we attended a wedding in Berry. I did feel anxious at first at the thought of leaving my son in the care of someone I didn’t know, but in the lead-up to the night, Melinda was incredibly reassuring and professional in organising the right carer for my son and I felt that Melinda put a lot of my initial concerns to rest. On the night, a wonderful lady named Carys minded my son and she was brilliant.
Carys brought books, craft, movies and balloons along with her and my son was thrilled. She also very cleverly helped my son create a Lego masterpiece! If this is any indication, the following day my son asked: “When will I be seeing Carys again?”. Thank you both Melinda and Carys – you were both fantastic.
Theresa – Berry
impressed, so lovely, a great communicator
Hi Richelle, Thanks for your email. It reminded me that I wanted to send a note to say how impressed we were with Alyce.
She was so lovely, a great communicator, on time, the kids thought she was lots of fun, she expertly sorted out a near crisis with my daughters teddy being locked in another hotel room and she even did the dishes from the kids dinner (definitely not expected!).
We look forward to using your service again – and hopefully seeing the lovely Alyce again.
Lys B Canberra – Quest Apartments Nowra
very professional and we felt very at ease
Thank you very much for arranging Julie to look after our boys. She was very professional and we felt very at ease leaving our boys in her care. We will have no hesitation in using your service when we are next down your way.
Michelle Kangaroo Valley 21/05/16

I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with Ashley. She was a great nanny and the kids (who are going through i hate nannies stage) loved her! If only she worked in Sydney I would use her all the time.
Charlotte – Wollongong
two wonderful babysitters, Chloe was excellent, across everything, they all loved her
Just wanted to thank you for finding us two wonderful babysitters for today. Chloe in particular was excellent. Called me a few days beforehand and was across everything. She was very organised (even brought books and activities with her), on time (early!) and so lovely with the kids, they all loved her.

there was laughter and positive energy,sent us regular updates, highly recommend
The baby sitting service itself was better than I could have hoped. It was the first time my husband and I had left our children for so long, so I was quite nervous leading up to the day. The moment Chloe arrived, there was laughter and positive energy, my daughter just took to her straight away. My little 11 month old was a little teary but the way Chloe distracted him and set him to ease was phenomenal. Chloe brought with her a range of activities also which were age appropriate and lots of fun for the kids to engage with. Chloe’s communication throughout the day were well received – she sent us regular updates and photos of the kids enjoying themselves which was wonderful. At the end of the day Chloe left us with an amazing handwritten evaluation of the time with the kids. Chloe’s’ level of expertise with children was evident from the moment we met her, added with her natural positive energy with children eased any concerns we had in leaving our children in the care of someone else for the day. I would highly recommend Chloe’s service to anyone! My daughter has not been able to stop talking about her since! 😊

beautiful service, highly recommend, and Ivy cannot stop talking about Klara
I’d like to thank South Coast Nannies for sending us Klara to look after my granddaughter Ivy on the 16/2/19. As soon as she walked in Klara made us feel comfortable enough to leave Ivy with her. Ivy warmed to her immediately and we were able to attend the wedding we were going to without worries. Klara bought over games,books and colouring pencils, as well as paints and play dough. Ivy did beautiful colouring in and painting. Through the course of the night Klara texted us to keep us updated on what was going on. Klara took Ivy to the park, played with her, showered her, fed her dinner and at bedtime read her books. I highly recommend South Coast Nannies and can’t thank Klara enough for the beautiful service she provided us. Ivy cannot stop talking about Klara and the fun they had. Thank you so very much.

completely comfortable, put my mind at ease, and he was so content
Hayley was amazing with my son who is one (1) year old. Prior to this day, my son had never been cared for by anyone other than my partner or myself. This was a big step for us and Hayley made us feel completely comfortable leaving our son.
Hayley arrived early so that we could introduce her to our son, she listened to what we said, and importantly she had done her “homework” and read the notes we had provided in relation to caring for my son that we had given to the service when making the booking.
Hayley provided me with Text updates while we were out which really put my mind at ease. I especially loved the detailed notes Hayley had made about her time with my son, what he ate, what they played, songs they sang, nap times, bottle, nappy changes etc.
When we returned home, my son was happy. it was like we hadn’t even left him. He was so content. So much so that when Hayley was leaving, he hugged her goodbye which he doesn’t usually do with everyone.
We will certainly be using South Coast Nannies and Hayley in the future and cannot recommend her and the business highly enough. Thank you “

reassuring, friendly, dealt with situations in a experienced and mature manner
We had our Wedding at Coolangatta Estate and needed a Babysitter to look after our children during the day and overnight. We wanted our children to have a great day, just as much as we did. It was reassuring to know that we had a friendly and professional person watching over our children while we enjoyed the festivities and the children had so much fun. Thank you South Coast Nannies for arranging this for us it made our day even more special!
We had a 15 year old looking after our children but never again now that we use South Coast Nannies we know the standard that they have to select their Babysitters.
We know that in any situation that occurs we do not have to worry because the Nannies and Babysitters knows how to deal with all situations in a experienced and mature manner. Well worth it!

put me right at ease, gave me such peace of mind, recommending you to anyone who asks
Hi Melinda, I just wanted to thank you for all your assistance in the lead up to our event yesterday.
My children had never been left with someone they didn’t know before but Annette your Babysitter put me right at ease as soon as she arrived, reassuring me with her wealth of knowledge and experience. She came well prepared with plenty toys and my two year old and 7 month old settled immediately. She sent updates with photos throughout the afternoon of all the fun they were having, which gave me such peace of mind knowing I didn’t have to worry. I was definitely a nervous mum leaving my two kids for the first time but I wouldn’t hesitate in using your Babysitting services again and recommending you to anyone who asks. Thank you again!
Katy A – Bowral – Canberra
so fabulous and our little boy loved her
Hi There, I just wanted to let you know that Rachel was so fabulous! Our little boy loved her, and he didn’t even cry when we left (which was such a surprise). He told me all about her in the morning.
It was refreshing to see him so happy when we left. Thought I’d let you know. We will definitely be requesting Rachel again in the future.
Jess – Wollongong
were fabulous, amazing Nannies and they had a great time
Hi Melinda, Wow, what amazing people you have working for you. Annette and Katie were fabulous with all our kids on Saturday and the logistics of the wedding we had to attend. Their fabulousness meant all the adults could enjoy wedding ceremony without being pulled away by kids that were getting bored. Once the kids were sent home we hear they had a great time and were all in bed easily.
I’ll be sure to recommend you agency and will use it again when we travel south. Many thanks.
Anna – Canberra
wonderful care, a true professional and in great hands
I just wanted to thank your babysitters Christine so much for the wonderful care she gave our children last Saturday and Sunday evenings. The kids warmed to her straight away and she kept them entertained and put them to sleep without any problems. A true professional! It made going to the wedding so relaxing knowing they were in great hands. You were amazing!!! Many thanks from Shannon, Eddie, Benjamin and Amelia.
Shannon – Bowral – Southern Highlands
was lovely, more relaxing and had a great time with her
Hi, Thank you for arranging Evelina as our Babysitter for Lilian last night. Evelina was lovely and Lilian had a great time with her. She woke this morning asking when Evelina can come again to look after her.
We had a fantastic night out seeing James Morrison at Centro CBD. It was all made more relaxing by knowing Lilian was being well looked after by such a lovely lady.
Now we need to find another excuse for a night out!
Sue – Wollongong – Illawarra
loving and very, very impressed and my daughter was smiling and happy
Anna was FANTASTIC! She and my daughter connected immediately. Anna had a loving and kind nature and I had no problems at all leaving her in charge of my most prized possession. My daughter was smiling and happy when I left, and smiling and happy when I came home – especially good as she was un-well and this was the first time she had been cared for by someone she had not meet previously. I was very, very impressed and would definitely use the South Coast Nannies and Anna again!
Joanne – Canberra
experience with young children and recommend her to others
Hi, I just want to say how happy we were with Emma. She was a very pleasant, young and energetic girl. I was so worried about leaving my two small children with someone I didn’t know, but I was immediately put at ease when she walked in.
My 2 year old son was not particularly easy to settle in his strange environment, and she took the time to be patient with him and try again later. You could tell she had experience with young children, and I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others. On another note, I appreciate the ease of booking the nanny on your website. Thank you.
Sandra – Frenchs Forest 16/11/16
easy it was to book, really friendly and recommend her to anyone else
This was my first time using the South Coast Nannies.
I can’t believe how easy it was to book and we were staying in a motel in Huskisson for a friend’s Wedding. Jessica was great, really friendly and this made leaving our 6yr old with her a lot easier!
I would highly recommend her to anyone else using this service!!! And hopefully when we go back to Husky she will be available! Thank-you !
Heather – Huskisson
Super efficient, friendly and provided total assurance and Fiona herself was just a treasure
I’m not often compelled to send feedback because having worked in the service industry, I just expect good service! But…you guys were/are brilliant. Super efficient, friendly and provided total assurance in what could potentially be “uncertain” territory for parents. Everything you said would happen did. Fiona herself was just a treasure. The kids loved her so much they wanted us to go out and for her to come back again the next night!
Holly & David Berry
thank you, warmed to her straight away
Just wanted to say thank you for the weekend during our stay at the Gibraltar Hotel Bowral.
Mel was amazing, my girls warmed to her straight away and it made it so much easier to leave them. Thank you
Alicia – Bowral
he was an absolute delight & my children loved their time with Alex
Hi, I would like to pass on some feedback from wed 10th May. Alex looked after my 2 children at a St George Bank function – she was an absolute delight & my children loved their time with Alex. Your organisation should be very proud of Alex & the wonderful job she does Thanks again.
Sheree – Wollongong
very capable, lovely lady, showed excellent initiative and made our wedding day stress free
I just wanted to touch base to pass on some feedback about Evelina for our Wedding day at Peppers Craigieburn.
We couldn’t of been happier with Evelina. She is truly a very capable, and lovely lady. We felt at ease the entire time when she was with Madeline. Our daughter, Madeline, and Evelina, had a great bond. Evelina went above, and beyond, fitting in like one of the the family. She took great care of Madeline at all times, and showed excellent initiative.
I honestly wish we could find someone like her here in Canberra. Evelina’s presence, and her caring, and loving nature, made our wedding day stress free, knowing our daughter was in the best possible hands.
Thank-you for putting us into contact with her, and providing such a wonderful service.
Hailey – Bowral
thought she was great, passionate, fun and responsible person
My wife and I are wedding photographers and occasionally our family aren’t able to help us out with looking after our boys when we are shooting so we call on South Coast Nannies to help us out.
It’s a wonderful peace of mind to know that we will have a passionate, fun and responsible person looking after our babies while we are working and Sally was no exception.
Our babysitting requirements are typically full day – not just a few hours we need for our carers to be able to keep the kids entertained and cared for for long periods – Sally felt comfortable taking the boys for a milkshake at the corner cafe, to the playground and the boys loved the craft that she did with them throughout the day. She helped to prepare both lunch and dinner and managed their bedtime routine as well. When my youngest woke the next morning he asked whether he could play with Sally again today… and my eldest said he thought she was great and she could come back again if she wanted too.
Erica – Shellharbour 19/3/19
friendly, thoughtful and professional and she was excellent
Hayley was friendly, thoughtful and professional. She made our 5 year old son feel so safe and comfortable on his first babysitting experience. She was early and even cared for the fur-baby who was nervous in the storm. I can’t recommend Hayley highly enough -she was excellent. I will be using your service and hopefully Hayley again, should the need arise.
made us feel incredibly comfortable and couldn’t have asked for a better babysitter
Kirsten looked after our 4 month old daughter while we attended a wedding. It was the first time we had left her with someone outside of our families, and Kirsten made us feel incredibly comfortable from the moment we met her. She spent time getting to know our daughter before we left, and sent us photos of her regularly throughout the night. We couldn’t have asked for a better babysitter, and we would highly recommend Kirsten to anyone.
Alicia – Mittagong 8/12/18
Nanny bought games for kids to do and South Coast Nannies made finding a nanny super easy
Really easy to work with and made finding a nanny super easy. Our nanny brought her own games and things for the kids to do to keep them entertained and even wrote up all the activity they did on the night! I would use this again and highly recommend using this service if you find yourself needing a nanny on the South Coast!
Charles – Huskisson 16/1/19
arrived laden with exciting toys and enormous energy and he kids had a ball
While nervous about leaving our three young children with someone they didn’t know, Karen arrived laden with exciting toys and enormous energy. The kids had a ball and the transition was so easy. Thank you for your wonderful service!
Edwina – Mollymook 6/1/19
She was amazing and we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves
Thank you so much for assigning Robyn to look after our kids. She was amazing!! My boys can be pretty fussy when it comes to sitters but they loved her. Such a great night for us to be able to relax and enjoy ourselves knowing the boys were so happy! Thank you again.
Michelle – Bowral 19/1/19
immediately engaged with the children and our kids were very comfortable with her
Karen was excellent. She was punctual. She immediately engaged with the children and made and effort to make them comfortable. She was courteous and interested in the kids. She left the kitchen clean and tidy. Our kids were very comfortable with her.
Simon – Ulladulla 8/2/19
warm and patient nanny and happy baby
Nanny Maree came to the rescue last minute and we are so grateful that she did. A warm and patient nanny, she took care of our 9 month old daughter while we attended a wedding. She gave us a full run down of the evening’s routine and we awoke to a happy and well rested baby – thank you again!
Carina – Nowra 29/12/18
process very easy and Shelley, was amazing and fantastic with my kids
I found the process very easy and quick. The nanny, Shelley, was amazing and fantastic with my kids. I loved the detailed report that she wrote for us.
I would definitely use this service again.
Marijke – Nowra
Communication was great, very experienced, arrived with a bag full of activities and crafts
Maree was fantastic! Due to unforeseen circumstances and a last minute incident we needed to take our two kids to Kangaroo Valley with us for a wedding. We contacted South Coast Nannies and were quickly matched with a babysitter. Communication was great.
Maree arrived early enough for introductions and instructions without causing any rush. The boys took to her straight away and she has a very calm energy which put me at ease.
We haven’t used someone we didn’t know before and were also in a strange environment. Maree is very experienced and arrived with a bag full of activities and crafts, some of which the boys got to take home. We left them feeling very confident she would take good care of our boys.
We had regular updates and pics of the boys and their play. At the end of the night Maree gave me a written summary of their time.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Maree and the South Coast Nannies to anyone who needs their services.
They got us out of a tight spot and I’m grateful for their professionalism and high quality of babysitters.
Danita – Kangaroo Valley 2/2/19
so happy playing with her, he talked about her for days to come and she was just amazing
Klara was our chosen babysitter and she was just amazing. Our circumstances were out of the ordinary but Klara was incredible in dealing with everything that was thrown at her. We needed her to look after our 2 year old son while I was in labour with my daughter. Trouble was my son hit his head on the day of labour and split his eye open. Klara did not miss a beat in arriving at the house, getting into our spare car and following my husband to hospital with my son. She then waited with my son while my husband ran upstairs to check on me giving birth! Klara then drove my son home and looked after him while I had my daughter. She cooked for him, bathed him and got him to bed. My son was so happy playing with her, he talked about her for days to come. I could not recommended Klara highly enough. She is a super star and complete angel. I would use Klara again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Klara xx
Chrissie – Jamberoo 26/6/19
patient, energetic and lovely to deal with and children had the best afternoon
The kids were from two families and both lots of parents agreed that Karen was the best. Her job wasn’t easy (juggling two 18 month olds) but they had the best afternoon with her and her Mary Poppins style bag of all of the best toys. On top of taking amazing care of our babies, she cleaned up after them and cooked them a toddler-appropriate dinner. Karen was patient, energetic and lovely to deal with. Thank you, Karen!
Claire – Mollymook 24/3/19
fantastic, experienced sitter and kept them happy and entertained
The booking process was very easy and professional. I had made an error in the date I needed the service and 1 day before, Richelle did everything she could to sort out a babysitter.
In the end we got a fantastic, experienced sitter that looked after 4 children. She kept them happy and entertained. We were sent text messages during the day with photos and updates. I would highly recommend the service.
kids had a great time and absolutely happy with the service
Absolutely happy with the service. Would highly recommend to anyone. My kids were looked after very well
And specific instructions I gave were followed. My kids had a great time. Thank you for looking after my kids so well.
Yeser – Bowral 9/3/19
punctual, reliable, friendly and has a great personality for working with children
We have found Hayley to be an absolute asset to your organisation.
She is punctual, reliable, friendly and has a great personality for working with children.
I would recommend Hayley to any family seeking a trustworthy and kind babysitter who you can count on to do a wonderful job looking after your children.
Karen – Flinders 19/3/19
eldest son gave her a thumbs up and fabulous service from start to finish.
Robyn was great. She rang a couple of days prior to introduce herself, arrived on time and was great with the boys straight away they felt comfortable with her. She also brought a box of goodies to play with which was great. I received updates all through the night and all went very smoothly. We received a verbal and written update on what happened which was fabulous. In the morning my eldest son gave her a thumbs up and the youngest said he had a great time. Fabulous service from start to finish.
Amy – Moss Vale 18/5/2019
so professional, diligent, kind and caring and absolutely wonderful!
A Huge shout out to South Coast Nannies who I recently employed their services to mind my kids so we could attend the Holly Burns Gala Fundraiser.
The service they provided was exceptional. The nanny they provided was so professional, diligent, kind and caring we felt instantly comfortable leaving our precious little ones in her care. She gave us a text during the evening to let us know everything was good on the home front and when we returned she provided us with a detailed report of the evening activities and even sang songs to my son so he felt safe and fell back to sleep after he had a bad dream and wanted his mummy. Absolutely wonderful! So if you ever need a night out kid free I highly suggest seeking the services of South Coast Nannies.
Cassandra H – The Woods 31/8/19
extra special care of our two beautiful boys and her glorious Magic
It’s very rare these days that my Maxi and I ‘work’ a wedding at the same time – but yesterday I was so excited to have him there serenading the guests, our beautiful sister-from-another-mister and her glorious Magic throughout the gorgeous ceremony at The Woods Farm!
These things can always be a bit tricky to manage when we’re away for a wedding so a different kind of shout out today – to the wonderful Klara from South Coast Nannies who took extra special care of our two beautiful boys while we galavanted, leaving us with a great story of the kids afternoon adventures (and even doing the dishes for our little cottage!). What a brilliant service!
Emma and Max – Tomerong 2/6/19
