1. Sitters childcarers are reference checked
Unlike the 'do-it-yourself' childcare directories, we carefully vet each new childcare applicant. This includes a written application, interview, cross-checking paperwork and speaking to previous childcare employers to verify the Sitter's work history and experience.
2. Sitters delivers childcare professionals
At Sitters we only work with childcare professionals who are able to provide exemplary references in the childcare professions (including OFSTED registered childminders, qualified nursery nurses, teachers and sole charge nannies). Typically a Sitters approved childcarer is aged 38 and has their own family.
3. Sitters responds at the 'last minute'
Most people like to book their babysitters several days in advance. But sometimes things crop up and you need somebody at short notice. We are usually able to provide you with a Sitter very quickly - even with as little as 2 hours' notice (sometimes even less!).
4. Sitters offers a complete solution
When you need short term childcare, use your Sitters.co.uk online account from your smartphone to let us know when and where - and we'll do the rest. Daytime or evenings, we'll keep you informed of progress by email every step of the way.

5. Sitters go (almost) anywhere...
We've sent babysitters to castles in Scotland, to posh London hotels, to cottages and caravans, even to boats afloat on the south coast. And of course, to busy family homes much like yours and ours, all over the UK.
6. Sitters provides great value
You pay nothing until your first booking is complete - guaranteed. After that, membership costs just over £1 per week. It's a small price to pay to ensure your children are in experienced, capable and caring hands whenever the need arises.
7. Sitters gives you back some 'me time'
Every parent needs a bit of 'me time' every now and then. Whether it's a quiet dinner for two or an all-day commitment - you can relax knowing that an experienced Sitters childcarer is taking good care of your little ones.
8. Sitters provides peace of mind
After every booking, we encourage parents to give honest reviews about each childcarer they meet. This allows us to assess and appraise our Sitters on an ongoing basis to ensure they meet the high standards of parent satisfaction we expect.
