Find a Babysitter

Tinies childcare agencies provide a trusted local babysitting service to parents in London and all across the UK

We offer babysitting services to help parents find babysitters in London and throughout the UK, who are either looking for a regular babysitter, or a one-off.

Babysitting normally covers the temporary care of a child or children, typically in an evening when the parents have a social engagement.

Tinies babysitting services for parents - since 1975

Whether you want a babysitter for an evening, or are arranging a special event and think you need help finding one or more babysitters, Tinies can help.

Please get in touch if you'd like to speak to us about finding a babysitter for your family. There's absolutely no obligation.

Tinies babysitters are vetted and interviewed

Tinies has been supplying babysitting services and finding babysitters for nearly 40 years. We tend to use regular babysitters who are well known to Tinies.

We have a wide range of babysitters who babysit for us, and they are all used to coming to a new home and caring for children whom they have just met.

We can find a babysitter whose experience matches the ages of the children they need to babysit. And whatever time you and your family require (daytimes, evenings, weekends).

We have vetted and interviewed all the babysitters who we use for our Tinies babysitting service, to give you peace of mind when leaving your children for the first time with our babysitters.

Recommended age of babysitters

The NSPCC recommends that babysitters should be older than 16 years of age. A babysitter below the age of 16 cannot be charged with neglect or ill treatment of children in their care.

If you're not using a babysitting agency...

If you are sourcing your own babysitter yourself, here are some useful tips for interviewing babysitters:

  • Have you had any other babysitting jobs before? If so, how old were the children and over what period of time (and/or how often) did you babysit for them?
  • Have you completed any babysitter training, first aid, or childcare qualification courses?
  • What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any hobbies or other jobs?
  • How do your parents feel about your babysitting jobs?
  • What do you like best about babysitting and being with kids? What do you like least?
  • What is the most difficult situation you have encountered whilst babysitting children? How did you handle it?

I contacted Tinies with an urgent request for a nanny. Not having used a nanny agency or Tinies before, I was slightly aprehensive about what to expect, but Tinies were helpful, friendly, and professional from the word go. The nanny arrived on our doorstep two days later, and my daughter (14 months) and I were immediately put at ease. I can't recommend Tinies enough.
