about us

Kiddicare is the Hunter Valley's very own babysitting/childcare agency, established in 2003 to cater to the growing needs of our region's people. Based at Lochinvar, Kiddicare is centrally located within this region to provide services to the Lower and Upper Hunter Valley areas north of Newcastle, right through to Singleton and has recently expanded to the Country Music capital Tamworth. Other areas also include the townships of Maitland, Singleton, Port Stephens, Medowie, Raymond Terrace, Kurri Kurri, Cessnock, Muswellbrook, Scone and The Vineyards.  We are also now in "The Southern Highlands."

The industry we work in stresses the importance of trust and a high level of customer service. Whilst Kiddicare places some significance on industry awards, we will always focus on meeting our clients' requirements and expectations, but are extremely proud of achieving recognition. Here are a few of our most recent awards:

Our point of difference is our people. All our carers/babysitters:

  • Have been specially selected from face to face interviews.
  • Are meticulously screened through the NSW Government 'Working with Children Check' to provide your children with safe, friendly and reliable care each and every time.
  • Undergo accredited child protection training.
  • Have current First Aid Certificates.
  • Are trained in-house to meet Kiddicare requirements and to 'go that extra mile' to ensure total customer satisfaction.

Kiddicare provides a friendly, responsible, caring and trustworthy service that you will want to use time and time again. Our babysitters are available to you on call when you need them, day and night, for before and after school care, on a casual or long term basis.

We trust you will enjoy the Kiddicare experience.
