Hi Sue, I just wanted to thank you and especially a big thank you to Chantal for looking after our boys on 27/12. Chantal is a lovely lady, and the kids adored her and had a great time. She came prepared with cool stuff for them to do to form a bond with them and distract them from us leaving. She was cruisy and really interested and encouraging of both of the boys and what they were about. Thanks to all 🙂 Natasha (Jan 2020)
Hi Sue, just thought I'd flick you a quick text about Debbie. She's amazing, our daughter absolutely loved her and was so happy to see her the second night. We own a childcare centre so meet a lot of women in the childcare industry and I must say again she is amazing. (April 17, 2019)
Hi Sue, Thank you so very much for organising for Lyn and Tina to do the babysitting for us on Saturday night. From what I can gather all the parents and the children had a great time and were extremely happy with them. They have certainly set a very high standard for any baby sitters in the future. Thank you all. We will certainly use you again if ever needed at the Gold Coast and will recommend you. Margaret. (April 2019)
Morning Sue, boys had a lovely time with Alysha yesterday she played with them all day. She's a real little sweetheart. S. (March 24,2019)
Hi! Just wanted to say I’m extremely happy with the service. Even tho we left it to late notice still managed to find us somebody. We had two lovely lady baby sitters (Audrey and Chantal) for separate nights and they were great for our 7 month old daughter. From the moment they walked in we felt so comfortable. Definitely would recommend Gold Coast baby sitters, and definitely will use again if we visit Gold Coast Again.
Thanks Again.Jessika (March 24,2019)

Dear Sue, Just wanted to thank you for arranging three lovely ladies to babysit for our extended family yesterday. With three families and 7 children between us it was difficult to arrange a night off for us to celebrate a "big" birthday. However, with your help we all had a great night together and felt confident that the kids were being well cared for by your babysitters. Please pass on our sincere thanks to Pamela, Tina and Carly for their care of our babies. Best Regards
The team at Gold Coast Babysitters are amazing, as locals we have used their services for over 5 years without an issue. They are quality professionals and we felt extremely confident in allowing them to care for our children. Each sitter is well presented and make the kids and parents feel comfortable upon arrival. Thanks for the great service over the years. Gold Coast Babysitters will continue to be our first call.
I just wanted to say a big thank you Noela for looking after the kids. They had a great time making Spike the Spider, Greedy the Octopus and Oscar the Caterpillar. We're due back on the GC next year, so we'll be sure to book you in.
Audrey was lovely and everything went very well. Thank you for making my first engagement with you so easy and thorough. I will happily have Audrey again and will certainly share my positive experience with friends. Not sure when my tricky day will be but I'll be call you. Warm Regards
