About

My name is Kristy. I am available for accession along care in your home and charge $30 per hour for this service. Also available for pet sitting in your home or holiday accommodation.

I have been involved in working with children for the past 22 years, at Burraneer Bay Public School in the before and after school care section, vacation care for Sutherland Shire Council and I have taken on various nanny positions minding children from six weeks to thirteen years old.

I have also taught children drama, speech, movement and singing and I owned and operated Giggle and Gossip at the Play Café, a children's activity centre and café, later operating Famiky Daycare for 18 years before becoming Coordinator for OOSH and then making a change to start Youth a work recently. So clearly, I love children and I am destined to work amongst them.

22 years experience, Cert III, completed 10 modules of Diploma and multiple other courses. Many references, police check, WWCC and First Aid including Asthma and anaphylaxis. 

Have friends or family that holiday in Forster? Let them know I may be able to help!

Reviews for Hire and Extra Hand

Care for Kids review
Thumbs up Would recommend to a friend
I've had my 2 boys with Kristy for the past 10 months and I am extremely happy with her service. She is reliable, friendly, caring and professional. The boys run to her for hugs and love going to giggle and gossip to play with friends. Her home is extremely well set up for care including a ball pit, an elaborate outdoor play area and a seperate sleeping area. She always prepares fun learning activities for the children while providing a loving family atmosphere. I have had 4 children go through different daycares including centres, fdc and nannys. Kristy is the best carer I have encountered. I wish we didn't have to leave her but we are relocating out of the area. I recommend Giggle and Gossip to anyone wanting quality, caring, friendly, professional, reliable care. 5 stars from me and my boys

The best care you could ever want for your children my two boys loved all their years with Kristy and it was their home away from home
