Christchurch Babysitting Bureau

A little more about us

Welcome to the Christchurch Babysitting Bureau. We would like to share some information about us and about our services offered.
My name is Beverley Geddes and I run this family owned babysitting service alongside my daughter, Leanne. Leanne assists the team with our day to day operations. I first worked for the Bureau in 1998, as a babysitter for a number of years. This was followed by about 6 years working as a nanny, and then ultimately purchasing the business in 2007. I have 2 children and 5 beautiful grandchildren.
We offer a flexible babysitting solution, with extremely competitive rates. Coupled with our years of experience, we feel our positive reputation is a reflection of our quality babysitting services offered. If you are travelling, we are available to look after your children at your motel or hotel. Alternatively, our team of mature and experienced babysitters are happy to take care of your children in their own home environment, where they feel safe and secure.
We’re looking forward to meeting you and building a long terms babysitting relationship with you and your family. We welcome your enquiries and are happy to assist you in any way that we can. Please get in touch with any queries that you may have so that we can find the best solution for you.
