‘Oxfordsitters’ was founded in 2015. With an increasing trend of families ‘finding’ a babysitter through social media pages, we wanted to make sure we could mould a safe service that could be accessed by parents through social media but also with the knowledge that all of our sitters would have been fully vetted, interviewed and referenced – twice!
Jess and Amy met whilst working with young families in Oxfordshire back in 2009.
Parents themselves, they also have a wealth of childcare experience and qualifications working in the childcare sector and family support. Their true passion is ‘getting it right’ for families.
Our motto is that we would never recruit a sitter that we wouldn’t trust to leave our own children with. Our aim is to make sure the right sitter is matched to your home so that your children are cared for in a way that is specified by you, the parents. Our flexible service also allows you to meet your sitter for an hour before they come to you for the booked evening if you wish to.
We always try to send the same sitter to allow for continuity of care and so you and your children can build a relationship with your sitter. Our bespoke service means that we can tailor your family needs to high quality childcare within your own home.
After joining Oxford Sitters we will send you a family information form so you can tell us everything you would like us to know
