Nannies, Babysitters, Wedding and Event Nannies, Hotel Babysitters
A babysitter is paid an hourly rate set out by the agency at time of booking.
All clients are informed at time of booking the hourly rate and the min amount of hours that is required.
All venues and home casual bookings we require a min of 4 hours per shift per nanny.
Fairmont Resort in Leura we only require a min of 3 hours per shift per nanny (this is because clients will often pop down to their restaurant for dinner or just down the road so we have found that a 3 hour min is perfect for this.
Or you can also book a min of 4 hours if you prefer to wander further a field from where you are staying, there are some wonderful restaurants in and around the Blue Mountains
The hourly rate for all bookings is as follows:

Babysitting Booking Policies:
All bookings are done through the agency only and not directly with the sitter/nanny or babysitter.
It is against company policy for a client or third party to contact any sitter/nanny or babysitter that is one our books and that the agency has sent out to a booking this also includes all third party bookings.
If a booking is made with the sitter/nanny or babysitter directly without the knowledge of the agency, the client and the sitter/nanny or babysitter will be charged a booking fee plus all admin costs and charges and legal action may be taken.
If the client cancels a sitter within 12 hours of a booking being made and after the agency has confirmed that sitter, the client will need to pay the sitter 3 hours at the hourly rate set out by the agency via a credit card to the agency - who will then forward this payment onto the sitter.

Once the agency has confirmed a babysitter - bookings are non-refundable
