Who are we?
SafeCircle Sitters is a professional babysitting service who have local childcare professionals available for parents to book for evening and weekend babysitting. Established in 2014, SafeCircle Sitter aimed to give parents the chance to have more “me” time whilst knowing their children were in safe hands. SafeCircle Sitters are now Nottingham parents #1 choice for reliable, and safe childcare in the evenings and weekends. Their long record of 5 star reviews from parents sets them above other services in the area (see reviews here). Our families don’t spend hours trawling through 100’s of profiles on local directories to find the best babysitters because we have already found them for our team.
As parents themselves the owners of SafeCircle Sitters were concerned about the non-existent re-evaluation of babysitters on other services, and lack of regulations for babysitting services as a whole. They felt this was a safety gap which needed to be closed, and so SafeCircle Sitters was born.
SafeCircle Sitters remains the only multi-city babysitting service who recruits qualified childcare professionals who have not only been thoroughly vetted but are all interviewed face to face and have their sitters DBS, and Paediatric First Aid reviewed once every 3 years to ensure they remain suitable to be working with children.
“The team at SafeCircle Sitters are pleased to announce that we now serve across Birmingham, with a new team of qualified childcare professionals ready to help parents have time to be themselves.”
