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.
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.
