COVID19 OUTBREAK AND BABYSITTING:

 

We have decided to keep the On Demand service going. We know that some families will really need some childcare support.

We do however, have serious concerns re dispatching carers to different areas of the city.

Please be prepared to answer a risk assessment questionnaire before we confirm your Babysitting.

We will encourage each Sitter to determine whether their commitments to other families allow for On Demand work under the circumstances.

We believe that limiting social contact and commutes is in the best interest of us all.

We trust our clients to only request a Sitter when absolutely necessary.

 

NANNY OR BABYSITTER?

 

A Babysitter is:

An experienced carer who will look after a family’s children occasionally and not on a fixed schedule. If you need a Babysitter, you are in the right place.

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 follow this link: http://extra-arms.com/for-families-how-does-it-work/

Our Sitters:

The Sitters are very well known to Extra Arms.

Each Sitter is or has been a Nanny that Extra Arms has placed mid to long term with a family.

Most of our Sitters can care for children from three months, and all will be careful to only accept requests involving children within their age range as a carer.

 

Our processing times are 10.00-18.00 Monday to Thursday, and 10.00-15.00 on Fridays.

SAFETY FIRST!

  • Do ask your Sitter to produce a valid piece of ID upon arrival, and check it against the CV he/she will have been asked to share with you in the email that Extra Arms sent to put you in touch.

  • Provide your Sitter with any and all information regarding the children and your home that he/she will need in order to keep everyone safe!

  • Ensure your Sitter has at least one, ideally two contact numbers for you, and/or the name/address of the location at which you will be spending the night. If there is a chance that you will be hard to get a hold of, provide your Sitter with the number of a next of kin, trusted friend or neighbor they can contact in case of an emergency.
