Hi parents. My name is Rita and I am from Brazil where I used to teach Portuguese. I’ve been living in Australia for 3 years and in Ireland for 3 years. During this time, I had great experiences minding children. The last family, both doctors, I worked in Dublin and came to live in Brisbane as I did an amazing job taking care of their kids they invited me to look after them here. They returned to Ireland in 2018 and I decided to stay here because of my studies. I have completed my Certificate III and Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Care. I have great experience with kids from 5 months to 16 years. I have experience working in a childcare centre as well. I can create a warm, safe, secure and happy environment for children develop and learn in. I am trustworthy, flexible, reliable and energetic person who will always be there for their physical and mental needs. I have a natural affinity and lifelong dedication to children I choose the childcare as my profession. For me the caring of children is not a job but a lifelong passion. * I have a Blue Card, Police Check, first aid/CPR training * I like to do crafts and outdoor activities * I am willing to do housework too.

Rita was wonderful to our 2 year old twin daughters. She has a warm personality and is an experienced care giver. Most importantly she’s reliable and trustworthy. We look forward to working with here again!

Rita was available last minute which was ideal for us as we was having a last minute night down Brisbane, she was lovely and would definitely use her again if we are down that way ☺️

Katerina P .       January 2020

Thank you Rita for the great care you gave to our son. From the moment Rita arrived, she built rapport very quickly with my 8 month old. I left the house with complete peace of mind because of this. No doubt my son had lots of fun as he was particularly chatty and giggly when I returned home. Thanks again Rita, I will book you again in the future.

Trudi W .       January 2020

Thanks Rita for looking after our three children at such short notice! The girls had so much fun with you

Rita was excellent with our 2 boys. We felt very comfortable leaving them with Rita for the evening.

First time today that my 21 months old was with someone other than his parents. He had a really good time and I had great peace of mind! Thank you, Rita! You seem to be a natural!

Joanne B .       January 2020

Would highly recommend, she was reliable, on time and very friend. Was also happy to be flexible with times! She had our 16 month old boy fed and in bed sound asleep with no issues.
Would def be hiring again!

Alison C .       December 2019

This was my first time using the Sittr App. My boys were apprehensive when I first told them they would have a babysitter (they rarely get looked after by someone they don't know) but they were all smiles and playing happily with Rita before I even left the house ! She was calm, confident and they had a great time playing (and not watching TV) for hours. Would definitely book Rita again.

Rachel E .       December 2019

Rita was prompt, so easy to deal with, lots of great communication and most importantly my daughter loved having her! She enjoy d playing games and was full of compliments for her. Would recommend!

Felicity G .       December 2019

Rita attended for a 1 hr meet and greet with our 11 month old Bub. Her demeanour and handling allowed our daughter to relax and get comfortable with her very quickly. I am confident she will be in great hands.

Rita was just great.My baby was unsettled and upset before I left and Rita just took it in her stride and calmed her straight away.I felt very comfortable leaving her in Rita's care.

Rita was warm and friendly. It was the first time leaving my son in someone else’s company other than family. Emmett took to Rita straight away. Will be booking her again.

Stephanie G .       August 2019

Rita was absolutely amazing! Our 15 month old daughter is not great with new people, but Rita was able to keep her relatively calm and even put her to sleep. She kept in regular communication with us, something we appreciated. I would highly recommend Rita as a carer.

Rita was great. Out two boys loved spending a few hours with her playing lots of games and jumping on the trampoline - they were quite sad when she had to leave. Will definitely be using Rita again.

Candice W .       December 2018

On our second booking with Rita (we are over from Perth for a week) my son raced to the elevator to greet her with open arms. He gave her a big hug and barely acknowledged our goodbyes. He was so happy to see her, which was wonderful to witness. Rita was clean, organised and a fantastic sitter. I only wish she lived in Perth!! Thanks for everything Rita xx

Candice W .       December 2018

Rita was warm, friendly and confident in her approach with our 2 year old son. When we returned after three hours, he was beaming with happiness. We have her booked again and are happy to know that our little one will be in good hands again :)

Our Son settled down quite quickly after Rita arrived and he went to bed on time.

Mary H .       November 2018

Outstanding

Melanie C .       November 2018

Rita was absolutely amazing. We have never used a baby sitting service before so were very nervous. We had nothing to worry about - we came home to a sleep child who had a good night. The whole process was painless and we will use again! Thank you so much Rita xxx

Mary H .       January 2018

Rita was just lovely, would definitely use her again

Vanessa D .       December 2017

Our two boys 3 & 5 can’t wait to have Rita back. Rita was a natural with our energetic kids and they soon got stuck into arts and crafts and then the trampoline. She has a beautiful gentle nature and the boys took to her immediately. Rita was punctual both times we have made use of her services and she sent us messages of reassurance while we were out. We won’t hesitate to make use of her services again. Thank you for making the boys happy and for giving us peace of mind.

Vanessa D .       December 2017

A real gem. So glad we’ve found you Rita!
