Hello parents! My name is Nicola, I'm 23 years old and I have been working in the childcare industry for 7 years! I became an Aunty for the first time in October last year and now have a beautiful 7 month old niece that I love spending time with. I also have young brothers who are both 9 this year. I have the following: -A Certificate III in Children's Services -First Aid- Anaphylaxis & Asthma (refresher done June 19 -Current flu shot + all vaccinations up to date -Police Check -WWCC -I have my Full Australian drivers license -My own car -Non-smoker I am a nanny for several families throughout the week ranging from before school, all day and after school care. I am also a babysitter for 10+ families. My experience with children ranges from 3 months - 14 years old, and I'm comfortable working with multiple children at one time. These are my some of the families I have worked for in 2018: -Afterschool care for a 8 and 11 year old three afternoons a week, for three years. -Monday and Wednesday mornings with a 2.5 year old and a 8 month old, for a year and a half. -Tuesday’s during the day with a 9 month old. -Two mornings a week with a 3 month old. As of 2019 these are my current families: -Tuesday’s and Friday’s with a 11 month old -Wednesday’s with a 10 month old -Thursdays with a 4 month old I enjoy playing games with children and helping them with homework or reading. I also don't mind doing light household duties when children are otherwise occupied or asleep, but up to you. Duties can include washing, kitchen, sweeping, folding, general house and toy tidy up. I am a very trustworthy person, I understand the trust needed to leave a stranger with your children and your own home. I try to make the process as easy as possible and hope to become a familiar face around the home. Every child I have worked with over the years has made a impact on me and my knowledge. Whether it's a one time or long term shift I always love meeting families and becoming a part of the busy home life. Hoping to hear back from you, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. Warm Regards, Nicola

Came on time, everything went to plan! Thankyou

Nicola was great!

We had a wonderful experience with Nicola on the first night of our holiday to Melbourne that we booked her for a second night. If you're looking for a babysitter, your children will be in the very best of hands with Nicola. Highly recommend.

We travelled from Queensland to Melbourne for a conference and felt it would be nice to have a date night together. We have never left our eighteen month old daughter with anyone we didn't know before, so we definitely felt some apprehension with utilising this service. We genuinely had nothing to be worried about. Nicola provided fantastic communication from when the initial booking was made and was so incredibly lovely. She sent a text during dinner to let us know that everything was going well, which allowed us to enjoy our time away. I would have no hesitation with recommending Nicola and would definitely have her look after our daughter the next time we visit.

My girls love Nicola. They enjoy being with her, she is fun and very good with them.

Nicola is fantastic

My girls loved Nicola . She was engaging and reliable. We look forward to seeing her again.

Nicola was great! She really connected with our boys and they had lots of fun with her. We would definitely book Nicola again.

Nicola was awesome. This was our first time having our 14 week old looked after so we were apprehensive. Nicola did brilliantly, kept to sleep and feed schedules and kept us informed. We came home to a sleeping baby and cleaned bottles. Will book again.

Nicola was fantastic! I’ve never used a babysitter before for my two boys. I was a little nervous but my experience with Nicola has completely changed that. My oldest son got along with her instantly and loved her company. She texted me often to let me know that all was okay and that put me at ease. Will definitely use her again!

Lovely thank you !

Great babysitting experience with Nicola, and the Sittr booking website.

Wonderful as always. She is great with our daughter and is very trustworthy.

First time using a babysitter for 5 month old and it went great! THANK YOU!

We felt completely at ease leaving our six month old baby in the care of Nicola. She filled us with confidence and knew exactly what she was doing. Thank you again Nicola!

Wonderful as always. I feel confident that our daughter is receiving great care every time she is with Nicola. She even helps with washing the dishes and putting clothes away which is always a nice surprise.

Wonderful as always

Great as always!

We're very happy with Nicola. She is great with our daughter and we love that she sends us photo updates about their activities.

Nicola was great with our daughter. She kept us up to date with how she was going. We are very happy to have found such a wonderful nanny.

Nicola came to the rescue at a very short notice to help look after my shy 5 year old. She arrived on time and was very easy going. Very happy to book her again

Nicola was great at communicating from the moment I contacted her. She was reliable and punctual. Our daughter immediately warmed up to her and I felt I could easily trust her with our daughter.

Fabulous as always!

Nicola is fabulous. She looks after my 3 month old bub beautifully. She comes two mornings a week and he loves her.

Fantastic communication and really made us feel at ease. Left the house perfectly tidy and the kids were comfortable. Thanks Nicola!

Our son loved Nicola and we felt so comfortable entrusting him to her! Thank you so much for a great morning. We would definitely book Nicola again!

Punctual, likeable, very professional and even did the washing up!

Would absolutely use again.

Very nice & friendly Sittr! Arrived on time, and was very professional. We were on holidays on the Peninsula and she drove a long way to look after our daughter. We highly recommend her to look after your young one(s).

Really nice, punctual and flexible about start and finish times. Thanks a lot

Great. Nicola was comfortable and confident feeding , burping, settling and changing a 7 week old bub. Will use her again. Lovely, calm and relaxed disposition. Thanks

wonderful sitter, great experience

Thanks for your time Nicola

Nicola was great with the kids. She even folded some laundry without being asked to and tidied the house- it was very much appreciated. Would hire her again.

Nicola has been a fantastic sitter. Always on time, reliable, intuitive and mature. I would highly recommend her services.

Nicola was great with the kids, very personable and calm. I had a complete trust in her.

Nicola was great! My 10month old had a lovely morning with her - I would definitely book her again!

Nicola was polite and communicated well with us throughout the experience. Would recommend.

I had never used a babysitter before that wasn't a family member. Nicola was fantastic. My daughter adored her. Nicola even followed my request for my 10month old son to have a 1 hr morning nap, so when he woke up early,she settled him back to sleep. i was so impressed with her skills and ability. I also appreciated having brief updates from her while i was at work, letting me know my son was asleep during nap time and that all was going well. Everything seemed to flow so easily. She even made sure the kitchen was tidy after lunch time, when i returned back from work. I will definately book her again!

Nicola was a natural with the baby.
Very pleasant and very comfortable around my 6 month old.
Will be using Nicola again, for sure!

Nicola was great with my kiddo. She was on time , kept me update while I was at work and when I came home, kiddo had a big smile on his face ... I’ll hire her again

Very professional, early to booked timed, was great with our daughter and would highly recommend her services. Was able to put us at ease and the transition for us to leave the house was easy and faultless being the first time ever to leave our daughter.

Nicole arrived on time and was very well mannered and friendly. Our 6 month old was very content to be held by her so we left knowing Nicole had the cheerful vibe that babies are drawn too. She sent us updates throughout the night which made us feel relaxed. Overall very happy and highly recommend Nicole to look after your treasured little ones!

Nicola was amazing with our three children. They had never been looked after by someone they didn't know but she made them feel comfortable straight away. She responded to our ad quickly, was punctual and friendly. We will definitely book again!

Thankyou so much! Would be very happy to book again.

Great.

Wonderful as always. On time, calm, gentle, very competent.

Nicola was great! Punctual, engaging and showed great initiative. My soon to 3 year old really enjoyed his time with Nicola. Definitely recommend and will book again!

Great experience with Nicole, arrived on time, very friendly and even did the dishes for me :)

Nicola is fabulous with our children, taking great care of them, playing games and is very responsible.

Excellent, made us feel very comfortable and my son loved her :-)

Nicola was great, arrived on time and great communication. My daughter cried when she left! Would definitely book again.

Our 19 month old loves Nicola. They always have a good time. Excellent and and on time as always.

On time, and excellent as always.

Nicola was lovely. Very punctual and great with the kids. Would definitely book her again.

Nicola was exactly on time & was wonderful with our children. Thank you!

My boys loved Nicola's company and I found her to be friendly, punctual and diligent. Definitely recommend Nicola.

Nicola was awesome. She arrived on time and my little one was asleep. Once he woke, Nicola had a lovely afternoon with him where he ate well and played. He was really happy when I returned home and was really well cared for. Would definitely use your services again Nicola, thank you.

Wonderful, competent and so caring - as always. Thank you.

Excellent. As always.

Arrived on time and was able to stay longer as we needed, thank goodness! 😅

On time and such a lovely person!

On time and excellent as usual. Thank you Nicola.

We were very happy with Nicola. She was very quick to respond to our job request. Our 3yr old son was very happy to be left with Nicola and enjoyed his time with her. Would highly recommend 😊

Great! I'd book Nicola again and my 2 year old loved her

Nicola arrived on time, stayed afterwards to chat with us. Upon arrival our toddler was shy but within 15 mins warmed up to Nicola. She was quiet, calm, dealt with the normal duties of a babysitter well and even had a thunderstorm to deal with, which toddler did not like, but Nicola dealt with admirably. It's obvious that Nicola really likes children and being with them. Yes we will book with Nicola again, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other parents.

This was the first time we'd left our daughter with a babysitter who was previously unknown to us and we couldn't have been happier. Our daughter was more than happy to be left with Nicola. Nicola was very accomodating for our needs and I felt very happy and content to leave Lani in her care. Will definitely be using her services again. Thanks heaps Nicola!!!

Nicola was fantastic. Punctual, easy-going and fun. Our daughter thought she was very nice, and we found her to be very helpful.

Thanks Nicola - you were wonderful with the kids, and thanks for coming at such short notice! Great service.

Nicola is lovely! Very reliable and friendly. my 3 year old son was comfortable right away. They played games, went to the park and my son wouldn't stop talking about how much fun he had... Highly recommended, I was at ease knowing he was in good hands. Thanks again

Nicola watched my children ages 3 and 5 in 2015 for a period of several months. She was very kind and engaging with the children. She picked my son up from kinder and we never had any problems with reliability. I would highly recommend her and would definitely hire her again.

We have been using Nicola as a casual sitter for our 8 year old son for almost 2 years.
Nicola presents as very professional and always has ideas and activities in mind to keep things interesting.
Our son really enjoys Nicola's company and contacting her is our first choice when a sitter is required.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola's services.

Nicola is a wonderful, professional babysitter. We have employed her for casual babysitting of my two and five year olds, for a number of years, and my children, my partner and I absolutely love her. Nicola always listens, follows instructions and is very trustworthy.
One of the aspects of Nicola’s personality that I appreciate the most, is her ability to always keep the children calm. Whether there is a strange noise outside the house or the children just do not want to go to bed, Nicola is always able to maintain order. If you have the opportunity to hire Nicola as your babysitter, I would recommend strongly that you do so.

Regards,
Kate Legg
