Sitter Codes of Professional Responsibility
Our guide to a great babysitting
Each SafeCircle sitter has been recruited for their skills, experience and high levels of professionalism in childcare and have signed up to our Sitter Professional Codes of Responsibility.
But what does this mean for member families? Our Professional Codes of Responsibility have been created to ensure that every family receives the same great babysitting experience. Here are some of the key areas our babysitters adhere to:
Friendly and professional throughout
The safety of the children is always the sitter's highest priority, and they will make them their paramount consideration. Every SafeCircle sitter holds an ID card which they will present upon arrival to show that they have been SafeCircle-approved and are the allocated babysitter for your booking. They will always arrive with a smile and help to settle the children when you leave for your time away.
Our babysitters enjoy working with children, and spending time with them. Our sitters will use their time to interact with your children through play and activities. Screen time is kept to a minimum whilst your children are awake (unless otherwise instructed) and will engage your children in conversation, calm play and educational games.
Undivided attention for your children
SafeCircle sitters do not spend all their time talking or texting on the phone - this is strictly limited only to emergencies while your children are awake. Our babysitters do not invite friends or visitors to your home whilst you are out, remaining professional throughout the booking.
When leaving a family's home, your SafeCircle sitter makes sure that your home is as it was or better than when they arrived, cleaning up after themselves and the children in their care. Our babysitters do not take from the fridge or cupboards during bookings and come prepared with what they need for the duration.
Trusted by great parents
SafeCircle is trusted by the best. From doctors to professional sportspeople, and business owners to childcare professionals, our member families understand that all childcare should be exceptional, and that SafeCircle helps them find it.
