We process On Demand Babysitting requests at the following times:

Monday to Thursday 10.00-18.00

Fridays 10.00-15.00



We encourage our Sitters and clients to assess risk and discuss the precautions needed to ensure Babysittings are as safe as possible for all concerned.  Please ask your Sitter any questions you deem relevant in the context of the Covid19 pandemic.



A Babysitter is:

An experienced carer who will look after a family’s children occasionally,  usually not on a fixed schedule, or perhaps on a regular basis but for short amounts of time. You may find yourself working with more than one Babysitter, because it will be hard for any one carer to pledge availability if you cannot know in advance when and how often you might need cover. If you need a Babysitter, you are in the right place.

Our Sitters are very well known to Extra Arms and can care for children from three months.

A Nanny is:

A carer that will commit to working with family mid to long term on a fixed schedule.If you need a Nanny, please click here.
