Coast Sitters

About Us

Coast Sitters grew out of the need for babysitters and in-home child carers on The Hibiscus Coast.

Founder, Kate Hall, had been a nanny and babysitter for 7+ years, and when moving on from her 20+ families around the coast, she realised the huge gap in service that families were desperately missing. Coast Sitters was founded in June, 2017, and now consists of a growing team of 16 experienced childminders.

The sitters range from 19 – 60 years in age, all bringing different areas of experience. Some are nearly registered nurses, others are grandmothers, most sitters are studying in the field of childcare, or even professional nannies.

All Coast Sitters have 4+ years of experience with children, and are genuinely passionate about connecting with families and watching their children grow.

Your time away from your little ones allows you peace of mind, and a stress-free experience.

Coast Sitters works hard to build a team of sitters with a variety of interests and experience, so that families can be paired with a sitter who suits them.

The sitters are capable at running outdoor activities, arts and crafts, taking the children to their after school activities and managing their weekly schedules, preparing meals, bath time, and bed time.

Families are asked to provide as much information as possible about their family and needs, so that the perfect sitter can be matched to them.

Coast sitters are also able to send sitters to events, supervise kids tables at birthday parties, or kids areas at weddings. Coast Sitters offers help in all those moments you need another pair of hands.

Atmosphere

Coast Sitters is community focused and personable. Sitters are warm and welcoming, and can turn up to any home and make any family know they can trust them 100%. We set up a complementary meeting with the sitter beforehand, if time allows, so that the family can meet the sitter before they come to care for them. This usually involves the sitter popping over for a cup of tea before the babysitting event.

We also have a strict policy of open communication and connectedness. All sitters know they can ring our founder, Kate Hall, for any questions, concerns, or aid in situations that need a second opinion. Our sitters are tight team of childcare enthusiasts, and we are always learning and growing together with our families.

“Absolutely phenomenal childcare. It’s changed my life having reliable care and every nanny we are sent is friendly and caring!”

“Fantastic service. Made everything easy from start to finish. I felt completely at ease leaving our two girls for the first time since we arrived in New Zealand. They are keen for their sitter to come back again too so it’s a win all round.”
