Why parents love Sitters...

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 to you

At Sitters we deliver childcare wherever you need it. 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). 

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 childcare you can use your Sitters online account to let us know when and where - and we'll take care of the rest. 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. With Sitters - you're covered

For your complete peace of mind, when you book childcare through Sitters.co.uk your babysitter is covered by Sitters' insurance, including cover in the unlikely event of any accidental damage or injury caused by a childcarer during your booking.

7. Sitters provides great value 

You pay nothing until your first booking is complete - guaranteed.  After that, membership costs just over £1 per week - and you can cancel at any time. It's a small price to pay to ensure your children are in experienced, capable and caring hands whenever the need arises.

8. 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.

9. 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.
