Cherished Cherubs Babysitting pride themselves on being able to help many families around Perth with their childcare and babysitting needs.  But it is not just the parents who love having a reliable babysitter and benefit from the hard work of Cherished Cherubs Babysitting.  Here is what one of their babysitters has to say about working for the agency...

“A day in the life of a Babysitter” By Tarina

On my chosen days to work I am always listening out to the sound of my phone receiving a message. I get excited when a message comes in. I check it and there it is from Cherished Cherubs asking if I can work eg: tonight/tomorrow? I get excited and text back “yes please”. They say ta and we’ll send you the email through.

Once receiving the email a million thoughts go through my head. What games can I play with the children? What can I do to make the children happy, and enjoy my company? What toys can I put in my goodie bag? Should I take a book, jigsaw, cuddly toys, stickers etc? Once I am all organised I just do a quick check through my babysitting file. I have my printed email on my clipboard and I am set to go.

I arrive at the babysitting job with a good 10 mins spare. I greet the parents at the front door with “Hi I am Tarina the babysitter from Cherished Cherubs how are you?” I then approach the children and say “Hi you must be ….. I am pleased to meet you and we are going to have fun tonight. Most of my babysitting jobs go for a longer time as the parents are happy with me looking after their children and I don’t mind at all staying longer.

Once parents come back home I brief them on what we got up to during the night. We have a chat and then they pay me and I go home happy knowing that I helped a family out. I eagerly await my next job as I love children and I love babysitting!

From the initial quote and booking to the baby sitting service, Cherished Cherubs have been outstanding all the way through!! It gave us complete peace of mind knowing our son was well looked after. - Christina, 3/3/20

We had Riana look after our 1.5 year old son for a few hours while we went out for dinner. From the moment she walked in the door both my son and daughter were obsessed with her. - Michelle, 31/8/20

Our babysitter Erica was fantastic, she went above and beyond to make our little people feel safe and happy. Strongly recommend her to others and will use again in the future. - Dale, 19/10/20

My children felt at ease with Ema straight away. She read them stories and settled them into bed. Booking and communication process was very straightforward and easy to use. Highly recommend - Hannah, 1/12/20
