Newborn - 12 months 1 : 2

1 - 2 years 1: 2

2 - 3 years 1 : 3

3 - 5 years 1 : 4

These ratios are a combination of legislative standards and our experience of providing quality care. Ratios of babysitters: children can be higher (but not lower) — for example, you may have children attending with some additional, individual needs that require 1:1 care.

Once your reservation is confirmed you will receive a Credit Card Authorization Form which must be filled out and returned prior to your scheduled reservation. At the end of the reservation, your sitter will have a service form for you to sign. Once signed, the sitter submits the form and the balance is charged to your card. Credit card receipts are sent automatically by email so please ensure that you have provided us with the correct email address



 

REFUNDS & GUARANTEE

    Bliss Babysitting endeavors to find a babysitter on request, we cannot always guarantee this will be possible. In the unfortunate circumstance where a babysitter cannot be found on the requested dates/s no fee will be charged. Unless this booking was made within 24 hours, in which case Bliss Babysitting will hold the last minute booking fee. A full refund also applies if the booked babysitter cancels or no-shows to the booking and a second babysitter cannot be found. Although Bliss Babysitting has high expectations of our babysitters, if any issues/concerns arise please contact us immediately.
