1: Our vetting procedure…

Our sitters come from a wide range of backgrounds and include nursery nurses, teachers, mums, students with babysitting experience and childminders. Currently there is no government legislation on babysitting; however all sitters selected for our agency have to undergo a strict vetting procedure before they are allowed to babysit.

All our sitters are:

Referenced 

We only deal in written references where an email or letter is sent to two referees. We will wait to obtain satisfactory replies back including verifying references by phone where necessary before we will allow a sitter to undertake any work through the agency. The referees must have known them a minimum of 3 years, not be an immediate family member and be able to comment on the babysitter’s skills and abilities with children.

DBS Check (Disclosure and Barring Service)

Many of the sitters are school teachers/childminders who have already been DBS checked within the last 2 years prior to joining the agency, in these circumstances an original is seen and a copy is taken for our records. If they have not got a current DBS check, the agency insists they obtain one before joining the agency. We also take a copy of photo id (driver’s licence/passport) again to support their application.

 

Required to provide photo identification

Driving License and/or passport checked and copy taken for agency records

Interviewed By Me

Interviewed by me, to ensure they are able to commit and deliver the high level of service which I expect from all my sitters

Over 21 Years Old

Sitters must be over 21 and have their own transport, so you will not be asked to contribute to lifts home or to pay for taxis.

Testimonials

What a brilliant service! All the convenience and responsiveness of an online business but with the personal touch of a local one. We've always been impressed with Sue's speed of response and with the lovely, professional sitters she provides. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this business, and frequently do!

E.Reeve Dec 2017

Our sitters are more than happy to put your children to bed, supervise teeth brushing, reading etc. Any routine you have, they will follow. Our sitters cannot be responsible for bathing.
Please leave a contact number, children’s medical details and Doctor’s number by the telephone. If, for unforeseen circumstances, you are more than 15 minutes late returning please telephone the sitter and let them know what has happened.
The provision of refreshments for your sitter would be appreciated.
Our sitters can only babysit for children who are on the parent registration form. If you do have friends children staying over, this can be arranged in advance. We do need to have extra children/s information and it is an extra £2ph per extra child/ren paid to the sitter. We follow Ofsted guidelines for adult:child ratio.
