The Perth Mums Group #Useful Lists are community generated lists of some of the most helpful, fun and important places in Perth. Using the experience and opinions of Perth parents, the lists are continually updated and cover the best places for kids and parents across Perth.

Below are some of the many options for finding babysitters and nannies in Perth. Not only have we sourced Perth based businesses who specialise in providing trained carers, we have also found more casual Facebook communities as well as individuals who are currently available.

0405 308 837 or PM through Facebook
I am 38yrs old, I have a current WWCC, Police Clearance, and First Aid Certificate, plus a full, clean drivers licence, reliable car and have references available too. I have been a Cub & Joey Scout leader plus babysat for a variety of different families, with children ranging in ages from 18 months to 15 years, (including a number of children with special needs). I can generally be available at fairly short notice. My standard rates are $15hr for 1child $5p/hr for each additional child. I also can do overnight stays and I would be happy to negotiate a "family rate" if you have more than one child. If you feel I may be suitable to help you to care for your family, I would welcome an interview/meet-and-greet if it would give you a little peace of mind that both yourself and your children feel comfortable with me. Thank you for taking the time to consider me to care for your family, and please feel free to call me to discuss anything or ask any questions you may have. I am located in Mt Richon (Armadale), but am happy to travel.
