Book your Mynder

You tell us when you need a Mynder and we take care of the rest. We’ll find you a carer ASAP (we’re known to be super speedy at this!). Simple, quick and safe.

pricing

Mynder’s pricing is flexible and affordable. You pay your babysitter at the end of your booking (we don't take a cut) and you pay us a booking fee.

Babysitter prices

  • Mynder: $23 per hour

  • Mynder +/Qualified Mynder*: $28 per hour

The minimum booking period is three hours.

*A Qualified Mynder has an early childhood qualification recognised by the Australian Children's Education & Care Quality Authority.

*Please note that over public holidays the following prices will apply;

Mynder:

$45 per hour for Christmas Day and New Years Eve

$35 per hour for Boxing Day and New Years Day

Mynder +/ Qualified Mynder :

$50 per hour for Christmas Day and New Years Eve

$42 per hour for Boxing Day and New Years Day

Mynder membership

Being part of the Mynder community not only gives you convenient access to a network of fully screened babysitters, you also receive public liability insurance for peace of mind.  

Choose from ‘subscriber’ or ‘occasional user’:

  • Subscriber (or as we like to call it the social butterflies- our faves): $30 per month for unlimited bookings, perfect for the regular user. No minimum periods.

  • Occasional user (for those who can't commit- did someone say no strings attached?): $15 per booking. A one-off fee, payable upon booking confirmation.

Cancellation fees

We only charge cancellation fees if you give less than 48 hours notice.  This is to provide some compensation to the child carer who is unlikely to be able to find a replacement booking at late notice.  The cancellation fee is paid to the Mynder.

24-48 hours notice: 1.5 hours of the child carer's hourly rate + GST

Less than 24 hours: 3 hours of the child carer's hourly rate + GST
