Agency & Sitter Costs…

We offer the same high level of service and fantastic sitters across all 3 options. It was easier than naming them option 1,2 and 3! 

Why do I need to register?
We pride ourselves on achieving our 100% booking success rate, having families register with us means we can continually monitor how many quality sitters we have to ensure we maintain this. However, if you are visiting us or do just need that sitter for that 1 night out we have ensured we have an option for you too.

Which option is best for you?
*Based on 1 years registration, the best value for money are the following….
Gold: 9 bookings plus more over a year
Silver: Between 3 and 8 bookings a year
Bronze: 1 or 2 bookings a year

10% discount for parents who renew.
We value parents who renew with us and can offer 10% discount on our registration fees.
*Please note if your registration does lapse and you wish to rejoin, you will need to do via the website at the current rates.
