Hi there. I’m a 38 year old mum of an 8 year old son who I have raised single handedly (I’m a sole parent). I consider myself fully competent with kids. I was born and bred in the Eastern Suburbs, and my son goes to school in Randwick. I recently obtained a WWCC (Aug 2019) and National Police Check (Oct 2019), so you can be confident that I am fully checked out, in that regard. I also recently completed a Senior First Aid and CPR certificate (Sept 2019). I have a driver’s licence and a reliable car. Having lived in the Eastern Suburbs most of my life, and being a parent, I am very well versed with where all the GP’s, medical centres and the Children’s Hospital are, in case of any emergencies. I am also employed part time in administration at a large private school in the Eastern Suburbs. I hope that I can offer some comfort to other parents that I have firsthand “mum experience” - instinctively knowing when a child has a fever just from their listlessness or being overly warm to the touch. I wouldn’t have known these things until I had my own.

Melinda was wonderful and immediately connected with my 15 month old. She got involved from the moment she arrived and made it easy for me to leave. Communication was appreciated. Many thanks and looking forward to next time!

Melinda was great, such a big help, thank you. My daughter had a really enjoyable time. I would be so happy to have Melinda watch her again.

Melinda is warm and friendly and takes the job seriously. She made sure our two daughters were well looked after during our visit to Sydney. The girls listened to her instructions and cuddled up with her during a movie and had no problem saying goodbye to us.

I would recommend Melinda and happily hire her again.

Melinda was excellent and we were delighted with her.
She was kind and caring with our son and we couldn't have asked for anymore.

Melinda was wonderful with my two kids (aged 1 and 4 years). She is warm and engaging, as well as reliable and trustworthy. I would definitely book her again the the future.

Melinda arrived on time, was super friendly and approachable. My two girls, 2 and 3.5, had no issue with being left with her 15 mins after she arrived and they had a great day with her. Melinda sent me regular, unprompted updates. She took the girls to my local park and played with them all day. I would definitely recommend Melinda to anyone.

Sensational! Will definitely book with Melinda again.

This was the second time that Melinda looked after our daughter: everything went well, and Penny definitely likes her.
We absolutely recommend her and hope to have looking after Penny again!

Melinda was absolutely terrific. She took the shift at short notice and was amazing with my son. Made the day go so much more smoothly, brilliant and my 14 month old loved her.

Very nice person, our daughter liked her immediately.
I’d definitely recommend Melinda and would be happy to have her again!
