A babysitter is someone who comes to your house occasionally to look after your child/ren allowing you go out for short periods of time, this is usually on evenings. Babysitters will have a set hourly rate of pay, however please be aware that some babysitters may charge a higher hourly rate for any hours worked beyond midnight.


Babysitters and/or temporary nannies can be hired to care for your child/ren alongside other family or friends children whilst you attend an event such as a conference or wedding. Many couples who marry choose to hire babysitters to care for the child/ren at their wedding for the evening or hire nannies to care for them throughout the whole day.

Please be aware that the amount and ages of the children will determine the amount of nannies or babysitters that will be required.

Safety and security measures

All of our babysitters have to meet the same criteria as the nannies on our books. They will have a relevant childcare qualification and/or childcare experience, will have provided references that have been checked and verified, undergone an enchanced DBS police check and have been personally interviewed by us. Consequently First Class Nannies and Helpers only provide professional babysitters, the majority of who currently work as nannies, nurses, primary school teachers or nursery nurses.

Ages covered

A babysitter with previous experience caring for younger children, can care for children of any age, but those without experience with younger children should not be left in sole charge care of any preschool aged child/ren.


Babysitters rates vary in accordance with their level of experience, for more information on rates of pay please contact us on 01347 822208 or email
