Bristol Babysitting Agency has been linking parents with quality evening babysitters in Bristol since 2000.

We provide parents with the knowledge that their children are left in safe and trusted hands, which is achieved by the strict vetting procedure our sitters must adhere to before they can register with the agency. All babysitting takes place in the evenings at the parent’s home. We can also provide sitters for parents staying in local Bristol hotels.

About me…

My name is Sue and I have two children and coordinate the agency from my home in Thornbury, Bristol. I joined as a sitter in 2004. I was given the opportunity to take over the running of the agency in 2006 and immediately jumped at the chance.

I truly believe that I have #THEbestsitters in the area. I personally meet each and every sitter, obtain written references and check their CRB / DBS and photo ID. I will only accept sitters that I would be happy to leave my own children with.

I provide a sitter information card which is emailed across to a parent once a sitter has been allocated. This card allows the family to see a photo and relevant details of their sitter. The sitter will also contact the parents to confirm the booking details direct with them.


I love being a member of Bristol Babysitting Agency. I don't have any family living local, so having access to a good babysitting agency is essential to being able to go out. The agency sends information regarding the sitter before they arrive - which includes a photo. It is great to learn a little about the sitter before they arrive and has really helped me feel comfortable leaving the kids.

Hi Sue,
Thanks for your email. I'd like to extend for another 12 months please.
Your service has allowed my wife and I to have regular date nights out - something we value a lot - so we're definitely in for another year.
