"So fortunate this service is available in my local area"
"I'd say a big thank you to all at SafeCircle Sitters for giving me back a little of my freedom [...] I just think that the whole offering is fantastic and I would say to anyone who is nervous about leaving their child/ren to give them a try and see what you think as you have nothing to lose and everything to gain."
The L Family, getting back some freedom since 2019
Up until now, busy parents’ have been faced with inconsistent standards from other evening childcare platforms seeking to exploit the sector’s lack of regulation that means anyone is allowed to serve as an evening childcarer. Finding a safe babysitter that’s right for your family required huge amounts of legwork.
We think parents deserve better.
We’re delivering a new standard of evening childcare that meets the same regulated standards of other childcare sectors such as nurseries.
We call our new standard the Assurance Framework.
Your trusted babysitting partner.
Trust is an overused but important word in the babysitting world. We put actions behind our words with a framework and support services that ensure we truly do act as your trusted partner for worry-free evening and weekend babysitting.
We run more checks than any other major babysitting service
Basic, one-off verification checks are not enough for us. Through our Assurance Framework we go further than other services by ensuring these and other key checks are performed throughout a babysitter's time with us.
You’re in control to ensure your family’s needs are met
We trust that parents know their family’s needs best. Unlike other services, sitter selection is your choice. So whether you require a SEN sitter, newborn, or another skillset, you’re always in control of who arrives at your door.
But we’ll also hold your hand if you want us to
We recognise that childcare decisions aren't easy. With our complimentary services, from Virtual Meets with sitters to our Expert Consultation matching service, we help give you the confidence to use a babysitter and go out worry-free.
