"Thank you very much Karl and Rana for being awesome with my kids. They had a great time, Ariana especially enjoyed playing with Rana and making stories about what all her little "shrunkens" were up to. Karl I really appreciated the extra assistance with the washing and ironing too. Made a big difference to me, allowing me to get my work done and be on my conference call. A+."

Top Babysitter related questions

What kinds of tasks will a babysitter do?

A babysitter’s primary role is to care for children and look after their basic needs, like meals, hygiene, and settling for naps. Outside of that, if there’s time, your babysitter may help with chores like folding the washing, picking up toys, and even preparing dinner.

What skills are needed for babysitting?

Babysitters need to be reliable, good with children, patient, responsible, responsive, and caring. Ideally, they’ll have experience and qualifications in CPR, First Aid, and childcare or education.

What is the difference between a nanny and a babysitter?

A nanny offers a type of babysitting service that’s usually longer-term (for example, 3 days a week, ongoing). While babysitting usually refers to shorter periods of time or less regular childcare.

How do I find me babysitter I can trust?

The best way to find a babysitter you can rely on is to check their ratings and reviews. Look for comments like “on time”, “great with kids”, and “will hire again”.

I'm looking for a nanny/babysitter from 9-5ish tomorrow (Tues 23rd Apr) to help look after our 2y9mth and 5mth old girls. I will be home as well but have hurt my back so can't lift anything and will need time to rest. Ideally start at 9 and finish 7ish. In addition to keeping the kids happy, if you've got time I'd like you to tidy up after the kids, prep their meals and put a load of washing on. I'd like people with nanny experience only to apply thanks.

I was looking for a nanny to help out with my 2 little girls throughout the day as I had injured my back. Fiona was a perfect fit from the moment she walked in. My 2yr old adored her and 5month old loved being around her. Fiona offered to help where she could and even though it was hard to ask for the help I needed...Fiona made me feel comfortable straight away. She did my washing and some cleaning in the little spare time she had and was exactly what I was hoping for. Very hard working and super friendly! She will be my go to from now on :) Thanks Fiona x
