Event Sitters

While the parents enjoy an event (e.g. a wedding, party or convention), event sitters look after all the children either at the venue or another location (such as a hotel room).


Please contact us to find out more or discuss your unique needs.

Providing an event sitter at your own event makes it much more likely people with children can come along as they’ll feel safe and secure knowing their children are at the event with you (or nearby) being cared for and having fun.

We give you the peace of mind of knowing your event sitter is pre-screened, safe and reliable (all our event sitters have a current Blue card and criminal history check).

At Safekeeping CQ we aim to offer only Nannies with previous experience working with children. However, this does not mean they are qualified. Please advise us if your Nanny is required to hold relevant qualifications prior to advertising.

Safekeeping CQ does NOT recommend sole charge of children under 2 years old be carried out by someone without a relevant qualification or minimum 6 months paid experience with children under 2 within a care setting. This is up to the families and Safekeeping CQ will not be held responsible for your decision.

Ideally, we require 4-6 weeks to find and finalise placements, though not as much time is generally needed for event sitters. At Safekeeping CQ, we like to be as thorough as possible! If it is an URGENT placement we will try our best to find someone within the time frame given – just let us know your requirements.

Please remember we DO NOT EMPLOY the finalised Nanny/s. We are an introduction/referral agency only.
