Top Childcare & Safety related questions

First, keep the rooms free from clutter. Make sure that all surfaces, toys, utensils, and your hands are sanitised regularly. Next, replenish any emergency kits (if you’re a Tasker, make sure you know where the first-aid kit is). Lastly, supervise the children or babies at all times. Note that instead of bringing your child to a daycare or playschool setting, the Tasker can head to your location.

The top 5 tips (or rules) for child safety at home are:

  • Prevent illness through proper handwashing, sanitising surfaces, and ensuring that the child has all the recommended immunisations. 
  • Practice food safety. 
  • Be safe while playing.
  • Baby proof or childproof the area. Avoid clutter, pad sharp edges, and make sure that nothing dangerous is within reach. 
  • Know what to do in an emergency. This includes having an emergency kit and a list of emergency contacts.

First, state in your task post that you require them to present their proof of registration, licence, and credentials. Next, before booking a Tasker, make sure to go through their customer ratings and reviews. Finally, ask to see their credentials before letting a childcare provider into your home. 

The list of baby proofing to-dos may depend on your own home and child, but in general, you must do the following:

  • Keep surfaces clean and free from clutter
  • Keep dangerous items (knives, scissors, ceramics, cables, sockets, cleaning products, small things that could be choking hazards) out of reach
  • Pad sharp edges or corners 
  • Keep an eye out for heavy objects
  • Know the settings on your hot-water heater

For a more thorough approach, we recommend hiring a baby proofing expert near you.

A child safety kit is a document that should contain the following information. Make sure to update this regularly: 

  • Your child’s name
  • Birthdate
  • Age
  • Height and weight
  • Gender
  • Ethnicity
  • Eye and hair colour
  • Unique physical characteristics (e.g. birthmarks, braces, glasses)
  • Medical needs and medications
  • Emergency contacts
  • Fingerprints
  • DNA sample (e.g. hair, an old toothbrush)
  • Recent colour photo

This depends on your child’s development. Some parents feel comfortable getting rid of the baby gates when their child turns two or three, and some child experts recommend childproofing until the age of five. No matter when you choose to stop baby proofing or childproofing, remember that these little precautions and adjustments don’t eliminate the need for proper adult supervision.

Suggested reads about Childcare & Safety

What do childcare and safety services include?

When you book a childcare and safety service through our platform, you get to work with a practitioner who can go to your home and help you look after your baby or child. If you or your partner are about to give birth, you can also find experts to help you get through labour and the first few weeks of life with your newborn. 

You can find the following types of childcare and safety practitioners on our platform:

Babysitting

A babysitter usually takes care of babies and young children temporarily - for example, an emergency comes up at work, you need to run some errands, or you want a (well-deserved) night out. Babysitters usually do not have any formal qualifications besides registration.  

They’re in charge of changing nappies, preparing meals, keeping the kids entertained, and supervising them. 

Childminding

If you’re going to be out regularly (e.g. for your 9-5 job), or if you’re going to be on a business trip for a week and none of your relatives can watch the kids, you’ll need a childminder. 

Childminders, like babysitters, are required to register with Ofsted. They may also have more credentials than a typical babysitter. These can include a childminding course, pediatric First Aid, and safeguarding training. Childminders typically prepare meals, change diapers, bathe and dress the kids, take them to and from school, and help with their education. 

Doula services

Doulas are responsible for providing emotional and physical support to the mother. This usually starts months before the birth. During your pregnancy, a doula is expected to educate you about pregnancy and birth, help you create a birth plan, talk to you about life experiences that might affect your birth experience, and help you prepare for your post-birth state.

During labour, they can support you physically by creating your ideal birthing environment. They also suggest positions and breathing exercises. Doulas also serve as your champion when talking to your healthcare providers. 

After giving birth, you can usually expect a doula to help you bond with your new baby and give you tips for feeding, sleeping, and settling with your newborn. Doulas typically service home births. If you choose to deliver your child in a hospital and don’t have a way to get your doula there fast, you can use Airtasker to find a trusted driver near you.

Maternity nursing

When you book a maternity nurse, expect a support system that’ll help you learn the basics of caring for your new baby. They may show you how to carry, feed, bathe, dress, and comfort your newborn. Maternity nurses may also help by taking care of your baby for hours at a time, allowing you time to rest and recover.

Life with your little one can be challenging! Thankfully, you can easily find people in your community who can help you shop for groceries without leaving your home. You can also find cleaning experts who’ll help you declutter or even clean out your gutters.
