All sorts of things spring to mind when someone mentions getting a babysitter through an agency, but let’s see what you really get……
We are all out to save some money, and for a night out, by the time you pay for a meal, drinks and taxis, babysitting is another cost to consider.
At Cherished Cherubs, we know we aren’t the cheapest option for a babysitter, although we aren’t the most expensive, and you can call some stranger off gumtree of Facebook, but have you considered what you really get by going through an agency?
You receive a quality service and professionalism at Cherished Cherubs.
Service – you can’t get an easier and safer way to book a babysitter. You save time by not having to do all the phone calls, interviewing, recruitment, training, reference checks, screening or co-ordination. And, another important point to consider, can you say NO to someone if you don’t think they are suitable? One phone call or one email and it is all done for you, or you can book online if that is even easier.
Reliability –we receive many phone calls from frazzled parents saying their babysitter didn’t turn up, or their babysitter is sick or pulled out at the last minute. Cherished Cherubs emphasise to their babysitters about being reliable. And if they do become unwell, the agency handles everything for you, replacing the babysitter without you having to do anything.
Screening – the screening is done for you. A babysitter cannot work for Cherished Cherubs without holding a current Working With Children Check card. In addition to this they need to have a national police clearance and senior first aid certificate. The agency monitors all licences and holds copies on file.
Experienced babysitters – anyone can say they are an experienced babysitter, but how do you really know? With Cherished Cherubs, experience is part of the recruitment phase to even get their name on the agency books. We get to know our team, as we are in constant contact with them, booking them for various clients on a regular basis, so they really do have hands on experience. We match the experience of the babysitter with the family and children to be cared for.
Quality of Care – Cherished Cherubs has an intensive and comprehensive recruitment program which ensures every applicant is screened, interviewed, licensed, experienced, and trained to be a professional babysitter for the agency. We focus on reliability, responsibility, safety, and quality of care so interactions are respectful and friendly.
Support –it is very natural for parents using a babysitter for the first time to be nervous, we understand that. With Cherished Cherubs Babysitting you have the support of the agency staff if you do have any issues or concerns, we are contactable. We pride ourselves on having a great team, and appreciate any feedback about your babysitting experience. We will confidentially raise any concerns with a babysitter if needed. We monitor each babysitter to ensure they meet our high standards.
We care – The agency booking team are made up of mums, so we can totally relate to how a parent or parents maybe feeling. Cherished Cherubs has been in business for many years, which speaks for itself, we know our clientele, we know our families, we know our babysitters, and we love being able to help.
For a happy social life, without stressing about the care and safety of your children, so you can have peace of mind, Cherished Cherubs is the agency to call for your babysitting needs.
