Babysitters of Kensington & Chelsea started in 2010 and is the first of its kind to allow parents to book and pay for a babysitter online and in advance of an appointment. You can view each of our babysitters’ individual profiles and pay for your appointment with ease through our online booking system.
Click on a babysitters photograph under About our babysitters to view each babysitters profile detailing their childcare experience occupation, qualifications and availability.
Additionally, parents are able to meet babysitters at our quarterly coffee mornings. This will give you and your children the opportunity to meet our babysitters in an informal environment.
The availability of each babysitter for the forthcoming week is displayed on the babysitters’ profiles
During the booking process you will be required to enter the date and time you require a babysitter for. On doing so, a list of the available babysitters will be displayed.
What happens if I am unhappy with my babysitter or the service I received from Babysitters of Kensington & Chelsea?
All of our babysitters are interviewed before they register to ensure that they are reliable, experienced and professional. If you would like the babysitter to meet you and your children before an appointment then you should book them for this time.
A great opportunity to meet out babysitters is at our quarterly coffee mornings. All available babysitters available attend this event and it is a wonderful way for your children to meet the babysitters in an informal setting.
Once registered, simply click on ‘Book a babysitter’ and sign-in. You will be asked to select the appointment date, your postcode and the time zone (morning, afternoon and evening) for when you would like a babysitter.
After clicking ‘Find a babysitter’ the available babysitters will be displayed. You can then either view their profiles or choose the babysitter you would like to book.
Payment is taken through our secure payment site, after which a confirmation email will be sent to your given e-mail address.
