Who are the Childcarers?

Sitters babysitters are recruited from childcare and other caring professions and have at least 2 years' professional childcare experience.

Many of our childcarers are OFSTED Registered Childminders, qualified Nannies or Nursery Nurses, as well as primary school teachers, teaching assistants, paediatric nurses and others from childcare related professions.

Typically a Sitters approved childcarer is 38 years old and has their own family.

When selecting suitable babysitters we employ a three stage process of information gathering, interview and thorough reference checking. 

We look for knowledgable childcarers who can demonstrate a long-term commitment to childcare and babysitting.
