Parents turn to new app they can trust

“We were fed up with the process of hiring a babysitter for our kids,” Samantha said. “There was no easy solution. We would spend hours vetting, sometimes late into the night.

“It was very important to the pair to ensure that the approval process for would-be carers was very selective. All sitters undergo an identity check and hold a Working with Children Check (Blue Card in Queensland) that is issued by the government after a thorough background check. All sitters also have a current First Aid qualification that includes Asthma and Anaphylaxis training, and most have formal childcare qualifications or have years of experience looking after children.”
