Our Story


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.
