Hi, I'm Amy! I have been working as a babysitter since January 2017 as I needed a job with flexible hours to tie in with my full time study. I have had two years experience as a teacher aide in a high school caring for and supporting the emotional and intellectual needs of children with special needs. In conjunction with this, I have previously cared for children from the age of 10 months to 15 years from multiple families on a permanent, part-time or casual basis and have loved the experience so far! I currently hold a NSW WWCC and am also a registered carer but can provide further documentation via email upon request. I really want to continue to develop my skills as a child carer, in the hope that one day it'll make me a much more experienced mother. I'm an incredibly organised, reliable and mature person who is often described as 'wise beyond her years'. I'm energetic and lively and love playing card/board games, reading books or just watching kids shows. I grew up in country NSW so I absolutely adore all animals and love the outdoors. I'm a qualified personal trainer and in my final year of studying to become a Naturopath. I’m a passionate netballer, dancer and yogi so you can rest assured your kids will be kept active and well-nourished under my care. If you think I may be a suitable carer for your family, please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

Amy helped my mum look after our nearly 3 & 1 year old. We received excellent communication prior to her arrival. She was punctual, kind and great with the kids. We look forward to using her again.

Amy was lovely, took care of my 8 month old daughter.
Arrived a little late due to traffic but would certainly use her again.

Amy was very friendly and great with my 8 month old. Would certainly use her again.

Amy was on time and managed to take on my son under 1. My son was very relaxed when I returned. Would book Amy again.

Amy was great! She arrived promptly and engaged with my child very easily. Thank you!

Amy was a really great babysitter. She kept my kids engaged with a range of activities. And she helped me to do some homework also. Thank you Amy

Amy always arrives on time and is great with our kids. She provides A+ service and we highly recommend her as a baby sitter.

Amy was a great babysitter for my 2 kids. She was very professional, friendly, punctual and the kids really liked her. I would definitely recommend her as a babysitter.

Amy was great, yet again. our 4 year old was feeling quite miserable due to getting her needles the afternoon before and I wouldn't normally leave her with anyone like this but a booked hospital procedure wouldn't wait. It was such a relief about 45 min after leaving for us to receive a text from Amy telling us that both children were settled and happy. We returned to both children relaxed and happy. Our 6yr old even asked if Amy could stay a bit longer so that they could keep playing. Amy was so sweet and obliged. Thanks Amy, it's wonderful to see the children feeling so comfortable with you.

Friendly! kids took to Amy really quickly as she has a very calm friendly nature. Would definitely book again!

Our kids loved Amy. She was punctual and polite. Kept us informed, allowing us to relax and enjoy our night out. Totally reccommend her. Will book again for sure.

Amy was on time as usual and was as always was immediately engaged with the children (who were eating their dinner at the time). The kids were very comfortable with Amy and happy to have her look after them for the evening. As always she sent a text letting us know they were asleep and a quick run down on the night (which goes along way in helping me to relax and enjoy our night). Amy knows our family routine now and we felt very comfortable leaving her finish off dinner, bath our eldest son (5yrs) and do the whole bedtime routine. The kids loved it that there was also time for a board game in there as well! Thanks Amy!

On time and did a wonderful job. Thankyou

Amy was a great help to my Aunt again during that busy after school til bed time period. She was helpful, on time and friendly as usual. Love that she sends me a text after her shift to give me a run down and let me know how things went. I really like dealing with Amy, she's practical in her approach, and just sets everyone at ease. Our 5 year old couldn't wait to challenge us to game after game of naughts & crosses upon our return from our trip away. He was delighted that he'd played it with Amy.

Amy was on time as usual. She was friendly, professional and worked well with my Aunt who she was there to assist during that busy after school til bed time period while we were away.

Amy was on time and straight away calm and engaged with the children. In the midst of some madness with us trying to get out the door and exhausted children needing to go to bed after a big week. She knew our routine and kept to it. It was lovely to receive her text later that night to say the children were asleep on time. It allowed us to relax and really enjoy our evening.

Amy was again punctual and engaged with the kids. It was great she sent us a text to let us know when they were asleep and settled so that we could really relax and enjoy our night out.

Amy was just lovely. She texted me when she was on her way which impressed me and was very easy going. Her relaxed manner meant she fitted right in with us. She was instantly engaged with the children, chatting, playing games and holding conversation. All while taking instruction from me on their nightly routine (as I also frantically tried to get ready to go!). I could hear her playing a game with the children and while playing she was also helping them learn eg..explaining things and counting. She was on the floor with them having intelligent and interesting conversations about the book they were showing her, she was completely engaged with them about their interests and they loved it. I was very impressed. The Children enjoyed her company and we felt very relaxed knowing she was in charge. we look forward to her coming again.

I have known Amy Phillips for over 15 years and watched her grow into a highly responsible, reliable and mature young woman. On many occasions over the past five years she has looked after my now 11 year old son with whom she has developed a very close relationship and I consider her to be a wonderful young adult role model for him.
I have no hesitation in recommending Amy as a babysitter. I trust her implicitly and she has a wonderful affinity with children. She is caring, playful and extremely capable of setting rules, ensuring the safety and well-being of children in her care.
Should you wish to contact me, I would be happy to discuss Amy's wonderful qualities and suitability as someone with whom you can entrust the care of your child.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Amy since she was born. She has grown and blossomed into a very well rounded, responsible and level headed young lady. She is very personable, able to get along with people of all ages and abilities and is great company and wise beyond her years! She is incredibly reliable and hard working and I have observed that she always tries her best at everything she does. Amy has a lot of knowledge and skills in looking after and caring for others, whether this was learnt from life experience or study. She is caring, considerate and compassionate and leads a very health conscious and energetic lifestyle. I would trust her implicitly with looking after children and I know they will love spending time with her!
