Hi parents I’m back from a 3 month break and ready for bookings with your children. Being in the Industry so long it was time to do some refresher courses and further my qualifications. I have worked in childcare for the last 16 years and I have 3 children. I have also been babysitting over 25 years so have extensive experience with newborns and of course older children. I am available for babysitting anytime and am also looking for a permanent role as a Nanny/Mummy. I love educating children and spending quality time nurturing their inquisitive minds. Lots of stories, walks, art and craft. Even cooking. Keeping them occupied, happy and safe is a job I love. I can provide police check, references and first aid certificate too. In my spare time I love travelling, the great outdoors, reading and cooking.

Maria was a blessing! We were initially anxious about leaving our two kids (7mths & 2yrs) with a new sitter but Maria was an absolute natural. Thanks to her we were able to enjoy our little getaway hassle free!

Maria was great with our 4 month old son, she was super friendly and sent us an update on how he was going. Will definitely use again!

Maria was great with the kids and they all had a fantastic night. Would definitely recommend and re use if we are back in the Gold Coast.

Maria was lovely, warm and kind. She was great at communicating and arrived on time. My kids enjoyed Maria and we would definitely like to have her watch our kids next time we’re on the Gold Coast.

Maria was fantastic with my 2 sons (2 years and 4.5 months) whilst we were on holiday on the GC - she made them feel at ease and cuddled/rocked my baby to sleep whilst we went out. She was on time and had great communication skills. We would recommend Maria to any family.

Maria was awesome, it was my first time leaving my two week old baby for an evening and Maria had everything under control for both her and my toddler. Definitely recommend and would book her again if we are at the coast.

Maria was great with the kids and did a fantastic job.

Maria was absolutely lovely and our 2 boys connected with her instantly. (Aged 3 & 22 months)
Maria arrived on time, was very obliging with our requests and followed our routine.
Maria sent us an update during the night.
Both boys went to sleep straight away for her and wanted her to come back in the morning.
I would highly recommend Maria.

Kids warmed up to Maria which was great.
Thanks very much :)

Wonderful!! Connected beautifully with Harry & I felt comfortable leaving my little one with her. Will definitely use again.

Maria did a whole evening routine with two kids and a house she did not know and handled it beautifully.

She also had a calming influence on our oldest child and the change in his behaviour was remarkable

The best, as always

Wonderful as always

Absolutely amazing carer! Maria watched our three children, two with ASD and came home to all three asleep and our two dogs happy as pie. Couldn’t recommend Maria enough!

I instantly felt comfortable with Maria and felt very confident in leaving my 6 month old with her. She’s extremely dedicated and has a beautiful manner with children. Yes I would definitely use Maria again and I highly recommend her!

Maria was excellent and very professional. We would have no hesitation in using her services again.
