Babysitting services for your little wildlings!

Parenting can be a wild ride. Everyday is a journey into the challenging and unknown. As a mother of two, I know my Little Wild Things have bought me more joy than ever imagined. Parenting is the most fulfilling, exhausting and mind blowing job you will ever have.

There are days when pants are optional, there are tantrums and tears over incorrectly cut sandwiches, and glitter and glue in places you didn't know possible! (And all of this before 8am). I truly believe that in these 'uh oh' moments, laughter is the best medicine, taking time out for yourself is a close second.
This is where Little Wild Things comes in to play, literally!

Do you need a break?

Want to join that class you have been promising yourself? Want a cheeky night out with your partner or friends? Or simply, just sit with a cup of tea in silence?

Look no further, we are all qualified MOTHERS. This is babysitting with a difference! Why? Because we know exactly how important it is to fill your cup too and we have all the skills and experience to take the utmost care of your 'littlies' while you relax.

Hourly rate and package options available.

Kelly

Hi, My name is Kell. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts/Education, Early Childhood/Primary, have over ten years experience in long daycare centres, nannying and babysitting; and two munchkins that have taught me more about the needs of children than any of the above. If I could describe myself in five words it would be determined, nurturing, thoughtful, patient and particular. The values I instil in my own children; kindness, independence, positivity, confidence, acceptance and resilience. Little Wild Things goal is to ensure that the families we care for are well looked after in a happy and playful, yet relaxed and warm environment and I ensure to uphold these values! Looking forward to meeting you all soon.

Lisa

Hello, my name is Lisa, I am mumma to two beautiful, energetic little boys, Oscar and Xander. I have been in Australia for 12 years (originally from the USA), and recently moved to Pottsville from Sydney's Northern Beaches. My professional background is in Healthcare Communications, however since becoming a mum I have done various nannying jobs to fit in with my lifestyle. I love ALL children! I believe nurturing them and teaching them compassion are key to the future of a peaceful planet, children also remind me how important it is to stay playful in our busy parenting lives. I am excited to be part of the Little Wild Thing’s team and offer other parents some free time.

Kirby

Hello families my name is Kirby. I’m a mum to fairy child toddler, Frankie. Im also a preschool teacher, and a student completing my final year of Bachelor of Education birth-12 years. I have over 10 years experience in long day care centres and preschools, but none of that prepared me for the crazy ride of motherhood! Although some days seem long, the years are short, and Frankie reminds me how important it is to slow down, sniff those flowers, follow the butterfly, and look around to see the beauty in what's around us.

Rachel

Hello families, my name is Rachel! While I am not yet ‘mum’ to any of my own little wild things, I take my job of Super Aunty very seriously. I have recently relocated to the Gold Coast where I am finishing my Bachelor degree in Health Science before undertaking a Master of Speech Pathology next year. I have over 10 years experience in babysitting and private nannying and have found that children have just as much to teach us (if not more), as we have to teach them. I aim to make parents feel completely at ease, trusting that their most important creation is in patient and understanding hands. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know my new community.

I chose this career as everyday brings something new, it is so rewarding in many ways but most of all its great to just have fun and be silly!

Jess A.

Hi, My name is Jess, when I am not looking after children, I teach Pilates including Mums n Bubs classes.

I look forward to getting to know you and your family.

Our Testimonials

"Just like you do mum"
little Tex is four months old & Jett is 6yrs. She showed up early, listened and asked questions about Tex's bedtime routine, was wonderful with my boys and has a lovely gentle nature that my put my mind immediately to rest. Jett told me she read him stories and tucked him in 'just like you do mum'. Being a mum to young children herself, she clearly understands the anxiety that can sometimes come with leaving your children with a babysitter who isn't known to them or part of your family.

Lisa was very professional
we used Kelly’s Babysitting service for the first time last week and we were very impressed. The lovely Lisa looked after our two year old daughter, who took to her straight away. Lisa was very professional and made us feel completely at ease within minutes; we knew our daughter would be in great hands. While we were on our date Lisa sent us a message to let us know how she was napping - which can be quite difficult to get her down some days!
Laura.
Kirby arrived early, with a bright smile on her face
and my children warmed to her instantly. It was great to know she has a daughter the same age as ours and knew exactly what to do. We did not hesitate to enjoy our night off and loved that she sent us a message to let us know our daughter was asleep.Thanks again Kirby.
Amanda.
Kelly is reliable, well priced and experienced
She looked after my 3 year old son all day for me last week, and when I got home from work, the house was clean and tidy, dinner was made, and the washing was folded (so I sat and had a cup of tea and relaxed!). All this and my son had a great day and keeps asking when she will be back to play with him! Her enthusiasm, imagination and energy are inspiring. She is reliable, well-priced and experienced, and I will definitely be recommending her to my friends.
Bianca.
Thanks so much for babysitting
my kids loved you and it was so nice to have a night out and know the kids were in great hands. I can't recommend you highly enough and will definitely be calling on you again for regular babysitting. Thank you. Sarah.
Drawn to her spirit
She engages with the children and my three girls are drawn to her spirit. Kelly is qualified and is currently undertaking studies in early childhood education.
Lisa.
Kelly is an amazing friendly reliable babysitter
who has cared for my two young children on several occasions. I have the highest confidence in her trustworthiness, judgement and maturity, and always feel relaxed after leaving my kids in her supervision. I highly recommend her professional babysitting services.
Rachel.
More than an excellent babysitter!
My 2 1/2 year daughter can be hesitant around new people but she instantly loved Kelly - maybe a bit too much. Now she has no trouble me leaving her with Kelly but screams when Kelly leaves! ❤️
