Sitters began life in 1967 as 'Childminders' of London.
The service flourished - and for more than 30 years,
Childminders was London's leading babysitting service. In
2006, Childminders merged with the family-owned Sitters.co.uk to
offer the same quality of individually interviewed, professional
childcarers - both in the capital and across the UK. Today we take
great pride in providing you with the best childcare available.
What makes us Britain's favourite babysitters?

little as 2 or 3 hours' notice.

We've sent babysitters to castles in Scotland, to posh West End
hotels, to caravans, even to boats afloat on the south coast.
And of course, to busy family homes much like yours, all over the
