Best option - Virtual Meet
Yes, we offer all of our families the option to have a Virtual Meet with their chosen sitters hosted by SafeCircle. You can request this using the 'Virtual Meet' button next to the sitter in your 'Sitters' and 'My Sitters' list.
Our Virtual Meet option is a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more about the babysitters skills and experience and ask any questions you have about the service. This also gives you an opportunity to see how they engage with your children and feel secure in their capabilities. You'll also be able to observe how well they interact with your children and discuss routines and your children's requirements.
An alternative is for you to book a sitter an hour earlier than you’re planning to go out to give you time to observe how they get on with your child, as we are confident that within that hour you and your children will happy and settled for the evening.
We also have regular events throughout the year where our sitters come along to meet with families so this is a great opportunity for you to meet some local sitters before making a booking. Check out our Facebook page for details of upcoming events.
