I just wanted to offer feedback that Linda was a great sitter for us while in Melbourne earlier this week. She was easy going, yet keen to make a connection with our little one and had a caring air about her. She eased our first-time-agency-experience angst! Thanks for the service.
Thank you so much for sending Taryn to babysit my son last night. My son has not been cared for by someone that is not familiar to him before and to my suprise, he hit it off with Taryn as soon as they meet. The whole night went smoothly and my husband and I felt really comfortable leaving our son with Taryn for a few hours.

Just wanted to say my daughter used your services Saturday 8th October for my grandson. We were all very happy with his sitter ( Lieitsa ). Think the spelling might be wrong 😫. She did a marvellous job and I have no hesitation with recommending and using your company again. I will certainly be passing on your details to my clients when they next visit Melbourne. Thank you xx
What can I say? City Baby Sitters is a trustworthy, reliable, and of highest quality agency. In March 2015, I had to take our 7 yo with me for a 2-day business trip...unplanned. Already paralyzed with fear as my boss doesn't support such decision (but no one in Perth could look after him as both myself and my husband are away that week), and highly concerned about leaving bub with complete strangers, I was super relieved and satisfied otherwise!!
The owner, Kristin, is very helpful and reassuring, not to mention friendly, and has matched the best suited sitters for my son. I'm so honored and loved, having Margaret on day 1 and Janine on day 2 cared for the little one. Both ladies made sure that my son feels at ease, had fun, and most importantly, well cared for (school works completed, breakfast/lunch finished, played games with).
For anyone considering the support from this agency, I'd say, don't hesitate! I highly recommend City Baby Sitters, and would continue to use their service when I'm in Melbourne. Thank you team! And all the very best wishes with your lovely work.
Anne B, Perth ( Thank you Anne, how lovely! )
Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Janine who watched my 3 kids (7,4. & 1) on Saturday evening. After a we had a busy day at the AFL grand final. Janine was a big help feeding the kids dinner while we got ready to go out and later let me know they were all asleep and to have a great night. It's the 2nd time we have used your service and been extremely happy both times. Kind regards. Dayna
Hi citybabysitters, I just wanted to let you know that we were very happy with Gail who babysat for us on Friday and most of Saturday at our hotel. Our kids were very comfortable with Gail (no mean feat where our two yr old is concerned) and our daugher Erin loved doing craft with her.
It was nice to be able to go to the grand final knowing our children were in good hands!
thanks again Regards Rachel
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart....what an outstanding service you provide, as a first time user of a babysitting service, I was a little anxious, you put my mind at rest from the very first contact I had with you THANK YOU!!.... Gail you are an amazing lady, my boys 3 & 5 warmed to you instantly and so did I. You treated my boys as if they were your own grandchildren.....Gail you are one special person and if I could have I would have brought you home with me......Gail THANK YOU Xx. Tina. From WA
Thanks so much for arranging Gail to come and look after Rory - Gail> was wonderful, and we had a superb evening, the first time we've been> out like that as a couple in a long while. Duncan.
I was so impressed with your service I thought I would drop you a line. Jasmine was excellent , infact my son remarked unprompted that she was"the best babysitter ever". Thats high praise indeed. She came prepared with activities such as origami and games and had just a lovely manner. She had an instant rapport and I felt very confident leaving my children in her care. I have used many such services in Australia and New Zealand of varing quality and your service was the most professional. I would certainly recommend your services to friends and colleagues. Please thank Jasmine on our behalf too. You really might consider putting her rate up to a premium babysitter!
Super late I know, but Mark and I would just like to extend our thanks to you and City Babysitters for organising Niamf to come around and spend time with our children. /The boys had a great time and Niamf was very freindly, welcoming and obviously enjoyed working/interacting with children. Should we require this service again........ we will definiately be looking you up once more. Thanks again Alisa & Mark (Albury/Wodonga NSW)
Citybabysitters ; We were pleased with your recomendation of Jasmine 24/11/12. Our boys had a great evening with her and asked if we could go out again. She was very warm friendly and kind and she taught the boys how to make beautiful Origami creations. A great night had by all. Regards Mary.

Hi Jeni, I just wanted to thank you for sending me Linda to mind my daughter Samantha while we came to Melbourne to attend a wedding. Words are not enough to express how grateful I am that she was able to mind my daughter, who loved her straight away. As you know I was very anxious about leaving her with anyone, but Linda made the whole experience so pleasant from the phone calls before I came down that really reassured me that it would be ok. On the night she was so kind and friendly I felt like I was leaving her with a family member, she also knew that I was a bit upset & sent me a text message an hour later to tell me that she had eaten dinner & they had a made a pom pom which Samantha has not let go of since & also let me know when she had gone to sleep.
My daughter was also not well and developed a high fever while I was out & she let me know straight away, Linda took such good care of her getting her temperature down until I came back to the hotel. I would recommend Linda to anyone who had to leave their child, they are in more than capable hands & Linda is so friendly & lovely she even called me the next day to see how Samantha was feeling which we thought was so kind & thoughful. Once again thank you very much. Corinne
Jeni, Just to let you know that Linda was fantastic. I think she had a great time with Lola. She is very professional in her manner, courteous and we both felt very comfortable leaving our daughter with her that night. Whenever we visit Melbourne again and need a babysitter we would definitely recommend Citybabysitters and especially Linda. Thanks again Russel, Jacinta & Lola.
Thank you for booking Meaghan for us enabling us to have a lovely dinner out in Melbourne. Meaghan was a lovely young lady and Alyssa and Ethan loved having her babysit. You will have to let Meaghan know that they wanted her to come back the following night too instead of hanging out with us.
Again thank you and if we are ever back in Melbourne we will be calling you again. Tanis
Hi Jeni, Just wanted to say thank you for sending the delightful Meaghan to take care of my son last night. I was very satisfied with her punctuality, manner and the care she took of him. Not long after she arrived he said to me "I love my baby-sitter Mum".
Looking forward to using your services again. Simone (Melb)
Janine was great last night, I felt very comfortable with leaving the three kids with her, the kids enjoyed her company with reading books, playing UNO and performing a magic trick that they are still trying to re-act and work out how she did it.
Janine was easy to get along with and always in contact and definetley The grandma type, even my mother in-law was really impressed!!
Im happy that I've found and use you as it gives us grown ups to have a couple of hours of free time, which we thoroughly enjoyed !
Thanks again for your service, will recommend whenever we can. Thanks Crystal
Thank you so much for sending Linda to us, she was wonderful! She was punctual, professional & came with a bag full of Lewis's favourite things, He did not even care that we were walking out the door! We would certainly use your service again,
thank you Lisa
I would just like to thank you very much for sending Aly to us for our boys while we were in Melbourne. She was absolutley fantastic and wonderful to the boys. We come to Melbourne quite frequently and will not hesitate to use your service again . Your service was excellent, thank you again!
We had a wonderful weekend & Robyn was absolutely wonderful with the kids, thank you again, Sam ( Redhill, Vic)
Hi This is a very overdue thank you. Linda baby sat for our daughter Grace in mid January at the Oaks on Lonsdale, I just wanted to say thank you as Grace had a wonderful time with Linda and we left the hotel for the tennis in complete confidence. Linda came fully equipped and quite obviously a very experienced lady and very warm towards Grace.
I look forward to using your service again if we are in Melbourne in the near future.
Best wishes Sarah WA
Hi I just wanted to thank you and also let you know Bonnie did a great job and we were very happy with your service. We will definitely recommend you to our friends visiting Melbourne. Krista
Hi Just to let you know we were very happy with Linda on Saturday night, She was great with the kids, even gave them a bath and dinner. It doesn't happen very often we need a babysitter in Melbourne, but when we do we would definitely have Linda again! Many thanks Rebecca
Hi Jeni I just wanted to drop you a line to compliment your service & thank you so much for sending Anna on Saturday night. She is indeed a lovely girl who had instant rapport with our girls. Consequently we had a great night out, knowing the girls were happy,
Thanks again. Karen
Hi City Babysitters,
I just wanted to write to let you know how very happy I was with the service that you provided. Catherine came to look after our son on friday night and was just wonderful. I felt very comfortable leaving him in her care and it was the first time I have left him with someone other than family.
We will definitely be recommending your services to any of our friends who travel to Melbourne.
We wanted to write to share our comments on Allissa who you recommended to babysit our daughters at our home in Kensington earlier this month. First, your recommendation of Allissa was spot on.
She was ideally suited to our girls & our introductory meeting with her left us feeling confident of her capabilities. She was a great choice. Thank you.
Secondly Allissa was punctual, enthusiastic & exceeded our expectations.
Our girls are bright, active & have engaging personalities & Allissa kept them entertained & occupied.
We received from her after she left on the second day some video clips & still photos of her activities with the girls whilst we were away & she burnt a CD for us of some music that she had our girls dancing to.
It was an unexpected & delightful touch.
We will have no hesitation in calling you again if we need a sitter or a nanny & can only hope that when we do, Allissa will still be on your roster & available.
Geraldine was fantastic - I am just sorry we can't find someone like her in Brissy that we would feel comfortable leaving our kids with - I would highly recommend her for anyone...thanks for the great service
Hi City Babysitters
Just letting you know we were happy with our babysitter Jennie on Tuesday. The kids really liked her and we felt confident leaving them while we went out. I passed on this info to Hazel (front desk at Albert Heights) who suggested your service. If I need a service again in Melbourne I will be sure to make contact.
Hi Jeni, Thanks for sending Cathy last night. She was a treasure. I can see why you commend her so highly. My child & I were both very comfortable with her. Thanks again, Alex (Crown Towers)
