While looking for a babysitter, it is good to keep the following in mind.
Select and review your babysitter
Ask for their references and see who already recommend them on Sitly. Always set up an interview before you hire a babysitter. Before meeting in person, you can also conduct a phone interview or a video call. That way, you can find out if the babysitter is right for you.
Keep your personal information private
Don't leave your personal details like your telephone number or address in your profile description. Only provide these once you have had a conversation with someone you want to set up an interview with.
Contact us when you have doubts
Is someone asking for your personal details without having had a previous conversation, or is there something that you find odd in a chat? Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll look into it.
Do you have a question for us?
What is Sitly?
With Sitly, you can find a babysitter, childminder or family to babysit for in your area. You can easily contact them, plan an interview and make further arrangements. It’s up to you to decide what kind of babysitter or family is best for you, so you can make your own decisions about who to contact.
Does registration mean any kind of commitment?
No. Registration is without obligations, free and without any kind of commitment. You can choose for yourself if you want to agree to an interview with parents, babysitters and/or childminders in your area. Arranging a babysitter or family is completely up to you.
Are parents, babysitters and childminders screened by Sitly?
You should look at Sitly as an online marketplace. Everyone can register or send messages. We don’t screen people beforehand, but of course we do check regularly if someone places inappropriate texts. It is up to parents and babysitters to make a selection of what they look for at Sitly. We do advise to carefully work on that selection, for example, to ask for references and plan an interview. This way, you’ll get the best picture of a potential babysitter or family.
