apostrophes all coloursi   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

apostrophes all coloursb   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

apostrophes all coloursc  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

apostrophes all coloursg   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. Regards Charlotte – Wollongong

apostrophes all coloursd   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 11month 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. Thankyou Katie and South Coast Nannies for matching us with a wonderful carer. Kind regards, Kylie C – Nowra 02/04/16

apostrophes all coloursc   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

apostrophes all coloursh   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

apostrophes all coloursh   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. Best regards, Lys B Canberra – Quest Apartments Nowra

apostrophes all colourse   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 SouthCoast 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. Regards Sally

apostrophes all coloursi  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 “ Kylie 19/1/19.

apostrophes all coloursa   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!  Kind regards Sue – Wollongong – Illawarra

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! Kind regards, Katy A – Bowral – Canberra

apostrophes all colourse   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

apostrophes all coloursi   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

apostrophes all coloursd   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

apostrophes all coloursb  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! Wendy – Coolongatta Estate – Nowra

apostrophes all coloursi   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

apostrophes all coloursc   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

apostrophes all coloursd   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

apostrophes all coloursg   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

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.

Kindest regards, Hailey

Hi there,

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.

apostrophes all coloursb  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.

apostrophes all coloursi   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 8/12/18

apostrophes all coloursc  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!

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!

apostrophes all colourse  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.

apostrophes all coloursi  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 2/2/19

apostrophes all coloursd   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.

apostrophes all coloursb  Karen was FANTASTIC! She showed up 5 mins early and launched straight into entertaining our little ones while we got ready. She was so confident and kind with them, and we immediately felt at ease leaving our children with her.

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 24/3/19
