Testimonials

"We have three children and, having no family in town, we have relied on Karitane to regularly provide babysitters. Without fail, every sitter we have been provided has been professional, always arrived on time, and I have always been completely comfortable leaving our children, even as small babies, in their care. Karitane have been great providing the same caregiver when possible and, as a result, our family has formed a close relationship with our main sitter and the kids adore her."  SH Auckland

Babysitting Services

Karitane offers babysitting services in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Hawkes Bay.
Like all our candidates, our babysitters are interviewed by us, reference checked and subjected to a NZ Police check. Many are nannies looking for extra work and some are students, teachers, mothers or grandmothers with lots of experience with children and they range in age from early 20s to 60 plus.


As well as our regular babysitters we also have our Karitane Professionals who are experts in looking after babies under two years old.

If you are visiting Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch or Hawkes Bay we are happy to provide babysitters to your hotel.

We specialise in event/wedding babysitters where we can provide one or more babysitters at the venue specified to look after the children while the adults relax and enjoy the special occasion.

We are happy to offer one off bookings.
