Reclaim your social life by using Petit Monde' s evening Babysitting services.
Peace of mind
For your peace of mind, we apply the same rigorous standards when vetting Babysitters as we do to our Nannies. All candidates are personally interviewed, good written references are required and verified and a clear Criminal Records Bureau check is essential. (As these standards are not required by law, please be aware that they are by no means universal practice at other agencies).At Petit Monde, all of our babysitters have previous childcare experience, whether it be as nannies, tutors, nursery school teachers, or from previous babysitting work. Despite our assurances, we understand that leaving your child with a new person can be difficult, so please take a look at our 'Babysitting Guidelines' to guarantee the best possible experience.
At Petit Monde, we aim to make your life easy. Simply telephone or email us with your babysitting request (twelve hours’ notice is preferred, although we will do our best to accommodate later requests) and we will send you profiles of available babysitters. Choose your favourite babysitter and confirm the booking by paying the £20 agency fee via bank transfer or cheque.
All of our babysitters charge the competitive rate of £10 per hour (each fraction of an hour to be rounded up to the next quarter), based on a minimum period of three hours, an end time of no later than midnight and the care of a maximum of four children (no more than two of whom can be under the age of three).
It is possible to vary these terms by prior arrangement with the babysitter, but please be aware that this may attract a higher fee and the payment of transport costs. The babysitter's rate is payable directly to the babysitter by cash or cheque at the end of the babysitting.
Please note that we operate a cancellation policy: if a booking is cancelled with less than 10 hours’ notice, the £20 agency fee will not be refunded.

We are here to help with our emergency babysitting service
If you need an emergency babysitter ( less than 24h notice), we would be happy to send you an experienced nanny to look after your children. The emergency booking fee would be 50 pounds/booking.
