Babysitting London

Snuggles Childcare offers a babysitting service that provides families with fully vetted one-off and regular London babysitters. All the babysitters undergo the same vetting process as our nannies, which means they are interviewed in person, hold a CRB and first aid certificate and have their documents and references thoroughly checked. Many also have additional childcare qualifications including NVQ’s, Btecs, NNEB’s, Diplomas and Degrees.

We provide babysitters in London for a range of events, weddings, hotels and overnight stays, as well as regular or one-off cover in your own home.

We cover London and the surrounding counties and do our best to only send candidates that are local to you.

Once vetted by us, the suitable candidates will be sent to you for an interview and to meet the children if you are looking for a regular babysitter. You can also speak to the babysitter over the phone for ad-hoc or last minute bookings before the sitting takes place.

You then confirm you are happy to go ahead and pay the relevant booking fee.

We offer babysitter services to hotels London-wide to make your stay in the capital stress free.  Simply call up, provide us with your childcare needs and we will find a hotel babysitter in London that meets your requirements.  The booking fee for a hotel babysitter is £30.  To learn more visit our hotel babysitting service page.
