Behind the scenes of booking a babysitter and cancelling

Ever wonder what goes into getting you the best babysitter we can in the quickest amount of time?

We want to make it as easy for you as we can, just one phone call or email and you have your babysitter all confirmed for the date you need.

From our end, behind the scenes, there is a lot more involved, and that is so we have a record of who you have had to babysit before, we know who we can call on to babysit, we have all your relevant information, and so we can ensure the right info goes out to the right people. We like to keep everything from a client’s perspective as well as a business perspective running as smoothly as possible.

 Here’s a peek at what we do when a babysitting request come through:

1. We have a list of available babysitters who have already been through our recruitment process. We search for a babysitter that has been to the family before, else hand pick who else will be a good match;

2. Contact potential babysitter/s (sometimes we have to ask a few to get one available for particular hours);

Finding a Babysitter Process

3. Inform the family via both phone and email;

4. Ensure all information is received from the family;

5. Send all the information through to the babysitter

6. Enter the information into our office administration systems.

 In circumstances where a babysit unfortunately needs to be cancelled, we then need to contact the babysitter and adjust our records accordingly. The amount of time spent on each booking is the reason we need to charge a cancellation fee, even if the babysit does not occur.

Phew, it sounds like a lot. Sometimes it takes a short while, other times much longer, but this is what we love to do, so that you don’t have too.

The advantage of going through Cherished Cherubs Babysitting is that you can have a reliable babysitter with the ease of just one phone call. It saves you time and stress and you get peace of mind as we have already done all the screening and co-ordination.

We look forward to organizing your next babysitter. Give us a call for your next babysitting need on 0417 927 525, we do love to help you out.

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
