Sitters was created by parents, for families like yours. We're not an app or a faceless website, our friendly team are all parents, so we know all too well just how busy family life can be.

We've made it our mission to make it easy and safe for families across the country to access award-winning, daytime and evening childcare at the touch of a button.

We love introducing families to our incredible team of experienced, approved sitters. If you have any questions please see our FAQs or you can get in touch.


sitters review

Hi, I'm Lucie, founder of Sitters babysitting. Together with my husband Stephen, we first established Sitters to find childcare for our own growing family. We were not only Sitters' founders but also our very first customers! As parents of 4 boys, we know that nothing is more important than family. That's why, for the very best care, every single Sitters babysitter has been personally checked, interviewed and picked by our team for your family.

Our history

It all began in 1967 when 'Childminders of London' was established, helping families in the nation's capital find trusted babysitting and childcare

Recognising that we could help families both inside and outside London - Sitters was born, providing evening babysitting to families like ours.

Taking our service nationwide, Sitters merged with 'Childminders of London' to provide fully-vetted childcare to families at home and on holiday, throughout the UK

Since we first began, we're proud to have helped families on millions of occasions. No one has more experience than Sitters in finding professional childcare for your family.
