We are delighted to inform that to facilitate access to the WCN 2019 to participants travelling with children, the WCN 2019 organizers have been in touch with Victorian Babysitting Service, a child care agency willing to offer its service during the congress days.

Please note that WCN 2019 organizers are not responsible for any aspect of the service. All enquires or requests need to be addressed directly to Victorian Babysitting Service at Rose Leckie

All Victorian Babysitters are thoroughly screened. Successful applicants are required to have a current Working with Children Check & Police Check, have a current First Aid Certificate, and purchase Public Liability Insurance, before receiving assignments.

Victorian Babysitters take care for newborn to teenagers and for children comfort their services are provided in participants’ hotel rooms. The most likely form of payment will be payment in cash to the sitter, at the end of each booking. Few hotels offer a Paid Out Service. This means the hotel will pay the sitter on behalf of the guest, and add the babysitting costs to the room account for payment upon checkout. For more info, please contact directly Victorian Babysitting Service.
