Setting standards that others won't.

SafeCircle applies regulation-level standards to the otherwise unregulated world of babysitting, for the protection of your family.

Amazing nights out start with a SafeCircle sitter

You're free to enjoy yourself when you trust your sitter. SafeCircle understands that your children are precious and compromising is not an option.

Premium babysitters

Our service and babysitters are what sets us apart. SafeCircle sitters are selected for their ability to display unmatched professionalism and ability to engage with your children. A qualification is not enough to be a SafeCircle sitter.

Adaptable, trustworthy and coming from various childcare backgrounds, it's in their nature to soothe, and interact with your child, supporting their emotional wellbeing and development. Our sitters have also signed a confidentiality agreement and maintain discretion for families.

Saving you time

Your time is precious, so stop searching on directories. SafeCircle knows that you want the best for your family, and we guarantee that not one or two but every SafeCircle sitter is a qualified childcare professional with paediatric first aid and police checks.

We also go further by continuing to conduct regular reviews to ensure our high standards are met now and into the future. With our complimentary Expert Consultations finding your perfect sitter has never been easier.

Sitters selected by childcare experts

Our 15+ years professional work experience in the childcare industry means we have been trained in and know how to recruit only the most qualified babysitter, who exceed expectations in care and work with us to set an industry standard in babysitting.

Our unique Assurance Framework ensures we set industry standards in babysitting which other services and website don't.

A Message From Our Managing Director:

“ Welcome to SafeCircle. We started because we understand one thing: That your children are the most precious thing on this planet to you, and when you're ready to take some time out you shouldn't have to compromise on quality.

Backed by my 15+ years of childcare and child protection experience, we're proud to offer families like yours a new option that addresses core quality concerns in the rest of the industry. With us you'll only find premium, regulated professionals who are proud to call themselves not just any sitter, but a SafeCircle sitter.

Please take a look around and ask us any questions you might have. We look forward to serving you when you're ready to start enjoying worry-free nights out again. ”
