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 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!

How Babysits works

The children

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.

The Babysits team

The Babysits team

Babysits was founded in 2008 by Peter van Soldt. He was motivated by the idea of developing an easy-to-use platform that gives parents both freedom and peace of mind: Our mission of empowering communities around childcare globally was born.

Today, Babysits consists of a motivated team working towards safe, accessible, and affordable childcare. We highly value transparency and continuous improvement.
