We cherish every cherub that comes in to our care

You’re here because you need someone you feel safe leaving your children with.  Trying to juggle work, social life, and me-time while taking care of your children is challenging for most families which might lead to feeling wiped out, disconnected from your partner and friends and that your whole life revolves around milk, diapers, domestics and no sleep.

Cherished Cherubs Babysitting

Having a loving family is great. You can have them babysit your child whenever you have to go somewhere. But what about those people who don’t have this blessing? And even if some people do have caring family members, they live far away. What should those people do? Their best option is to get babysitting service. Finding someone trustworthy enough to leave your child all alone with is the hardest part. I’m sure you love your child more than anything is the world but no matter how loving of a parent you are, you will need a little time out. Parents are the unsung heroes who work 24/7 and don’t get a single day off. So spending a little time without your child will not make you selfish or a bad parent.

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.

How has a Perth babysitting agency helped the elderly in the NT communities?

It is stories like this that inspire us to all keep going.....

We work hard at what we do because we love it, and believe in what we do. Our goal is to help as many families as possible.  

When things get frantic it is easy to lose sight of just how much goodness is shared by the very simple things we do.

How you could be harming your children if you NEVER get babysitters.

I still hear some parents say they don’t leave their children with anyone, not even family. I am not talking about just in the newborn phase,  I am talking as in years. Is that what they really think is best for their child, or themselves?

Are you a babysitting or match making agency?

Matching two individuals for a romantic date, matching an applicant to a job, matching an outfit to an occasion, it is all about analysis, skill set and compatibility.  

As a babysitting agency, it is important that families and babysitters are a good match. We want parents to feel reassured, children to feel secure and babysitters to enjoy their time.

How do Cherished Cherubs Babysitting choose which babysitter will suit your family? There are a number of considerations that go on behind the scenes before you get the phone call to say who will babysit your child. Here is what we take into account.

Perks of being a babysitter

They say there are perks in all jobs. Here’s my list of benefits as a babysitter:

1. Primarily, you get to meet so many lovely families. – I generally find that the parents I babysit for are those that value their families and their time, and also the babysitter.  The interactions are respectful, friendly and genuine.  And the kids, we interact and all enjoy our time.

What are things that go above and beyond ‘the norm’, and encourage people to say YES to an invitation or event.

Any individualplanner or event co-ordinatorknows the immense degree of effort that goes on behind the scenes to organise any function. Organisers need to co-ordinate the date and times, venues, promotion, invites, decorations, entertainment, food and beverage, and the list goes on.

But what are the extra things that they could be doing to increase attendance? 

What are the 6 best ways to make the babysitting run smoothly when you have a new babysitter coming?

1. Telling your child – Tell your child there will be someone new to care for them, but it is safe as you have organised it properly (supporting your stranger danger strategies) Tell them the name of their babysitter. There are books available that are about getting a babysitter, so read to your child on the days leading up to it. If they are older they may not like the term babysitter, feel free to use a ‘cooler’ name such as ‘uni girl to hang out with’.

The link is about integrity, or at times lack of. The more I hear feedback the more I realise that not all babysitting agencies operate under the same principles, that I thought were ‘a given’.To trust any business can be difficult, let alone one that you are leaving your precious children with.

From the questions we receive, the needs parents tell us they have and some of the comments we have also heard, here are some questions to ask yourself if you can’t decide on which babysitting agency to choose, because price should not be the main contributing factor with little lives ....
