Who Knew You Could Meet A Sitter At A Speed Dating Event?

Always up for something different, along I trot to Australia's only Speed Dating-like event to meet professional Baby sitters.. yes that's right I said speed dating for mums..

Its speed dating for busy mums like me who are time poor & would like to meet professional baby sitters face to face before they actually look after your children.

Established by Mei Koon, HR & Marketing professional turned Mum, Mei runs the events in Sydney's suburbs of Bondi, North Sydney and Balmain.. Best of all you leave the event with a overall profile of the sitters details including resume, available times/days, asking rate & have the opportunity to speak with them directly to see if they will be a match for your family.

How refreshing compared to scanning Google for suggested names of Sitters wondering if they will turn up or how committed they are to the job? Have to say I was also very impressed that one of the sitters actually made it to the event following a minor car accident .... obviously shaken she braved it and came!!! Love the positive attitude and commitment to follow through which is exactly what I'm looking for. Well Done to Meet A Sitter for sourcing her to join their team!

If you are in need of a little extra hand.. be it for five hours or a few more be sure to check them out...

  1. BRILLIANT idea, wow, that's fantastic!! My guys will be able to babysit themselves soon but that would have been handy when i had 4 children under 5 with weddings & events to go to, actually with my husband/ babysitter!! Love Posie
