I Need a Babysitter – We Hear You

If your normal childcare arrangements have fallen through then wondering how you can take care of your social life, or even work commitments, can leave you breaking in to a cold sweat - particularly if you don't have local (or willing!) family on hand to help.

Your little ones are the most precious beings.  Being torn between leaving them and knowing who you are leaving them with can lead to a great deal of angst.

However, parents need time away from their children. Perhaps you are desperate to see good friends as a couple, and are fed up of tag-teaming who gets to stay home with the kids? Perhaps you need a few hours to work from home in peace?  Whatever the reason, the ‘I need a babysitter’ phrase is still loaded with a hundred caveats…

I need a babysitter… but they need to be experienced
I need a babysitter… but how can I trust them?
I need a babysitter… but where can I find one?
I need a babysitter… but I don’t know who to ask
I need a babysitter… but are my children going to be ok?
And on, and on, and on…


Getting a Babysitter That’s Right For You

That’s where Sitters comes in. You’re not taking a gamble with your precious children, you’re entrusting them to the care of experienced childcare professionals who absolutely love what they do. You’re given peace of mind that even though you don’t know the babysitter yet, they have been interviewed and reference-checked. Sitters closes the gap between your need for a babysitter and your fears about finding someone suitable.

If you’re new to an area then Sitters can provide you with trustworthy, child-focused babysitters who are local to you. They'll be a friendly face who will soon become an important part of your family life.

If they're available when you need them, you should be able to book your first choice. In short, Sitters understands what it’s like to be the parent uttering the words: “I need a babysitter”. After all, we’re a family business, started from the position that you’re in now.
