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.
All of our babysitters charge the competitive rate (each fraction of an hour to be rounded up to the next quarter), based on a minimum period of three hours and the care of a maximum of four children (no more than two of whom can be under the age of three).
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.
