ON DEMAND BABYSITTING IS SUSPENDED!
Dear Families, due to temporary organizational issues we are suspending the On Demand Babysitting service for a few weeks. If you already know one of our Sitters and wish to contact them to ask if they are available to cover for you, please feel free to do so: they will let you know if they have capacity and they will ask you to send an email to us confirming what shifts you have decided on so we can process them in due course. Thank you for understanding and see you again soon!
COVID19 AND BABYSITTING:
We encourage our Sitters and clients to assess risk and discuss the precautions needed to ensure Babyisttings are as safe as possible for all concerned.
Please be prepared to answer a risk assessment questionnaire before we confirm your Babysitting. We advise that adults adhere to mandated social distancing rules at all times, that medical mask are worn whenever appropriate and that sufficient space and aeration opportunities are available to ensure minimizing contagion risks. The Sitter will need access to a bathroom in which to wash hands thoroughly upon arrival and during the Babysitting. We encourage you to consider offering the Sitter the option to change into indoor clothes upon arrival. Opt for outings whenever possible, so that Sitter and child/children can spend time outdoors. Disinfect surfaces often, and after your Sitter has left.
We believe that striving to limit social contact and commutes is in the best interest of us all. Please help us to support you responsibly.
NANNY OR BABYSITTER?
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.
Our processing times are 10.00-18.00 Monday to Thursday, and 10.00-15.00 on Fridays.

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.
