Together we make babysitting transparent

How it started

Babysits was founded in 2008 by Peter van Soldt. He noticed family members and close friends struggling to find a quality, trustworthy babysitter that met their needs and figured there must be a solution. That’s why Babysits was created; an online platform where you can easily filter on all your childcare needs, whether you want a bilingual nanny, a flexible babysitter for the weekends, or a babysitter with experience working with kids with special needs.

Mission

Babysits is there to improve the lives of families in need of childcare, to give parents peace of mind and help them find perfect fit for their family. Our mission is to empower communities around childcare. Now, Babysits has grown to over 4 million members on almost every continent, supporting families with childcare every day.

Meet the team

I found a Supersitter for my children through Babysits and I use what I learn from my own experience to improve the platform.

-Peter van Soldt-

Babysits consists of a motivated team working towards safe, accessible, and affordable childcare. We highly value transparency and continuous improvement. To make sure Babysits is as user friendly as possible, we use the platform ourselves, along with our friends and family members! Whether it is for a side job as babysitter or to find a babysitter for our own kids, this experience helps us provide the best possible improvements to the platform.

Families

Finding a trustworthy babysitter online can be difficult. This is where Babysits comes in. We provide a transparent platform so you can feel confident that your children are in the best hands.

Whether you are looking for flexible babysitter, a bilingual nanny, someone with experience with special needs, a babysitter that picks the kids up from school etc. Babysits has someone for you!

Safety

Childcare providers

Do you like being your own boss and choosing your own hours and wage? Do you absolutely love kids and would like to gain relevant work experience and earn some extra cash?

The Babysits community is the perfect place for toddler wranglers, peek-a-boo players, diaper changers, tantrum averters, homework helpers, or pillow fort builders!

Safety

The children

The children’s safety and comfort is the number one priority. Measures such as government ID verification, reviews, references, and more eliminate parents’ concerns.

Additionally, our community resources include childcare advice, DIYs, recipes, and activities to spend quality time with kids.
