SafeCircle is always looking for exciting new ways to improve the service we offer our member families and babysitters. The new features of our booking system are designed to give parents more control over their bookings and choices. So here is a snap shot of our new features, and upcoming features:
Pay As You Go
Bookings made with SafeCircle have no hidden fees or charges, just simple pricing. There are no subscription or membership fees with SafeCircle, parents pay just a £5 booking fee for each booking made with SafeCircle plus the £8 per hour charge for the babysitter’s time. All payments are managed online through the secure website, leaving parents able to head out and have some much needed “me” time without having to run to the cash machine on the way home.
Previously booking requests from parents were sent directly to all local babysitters and the first to accept would be allocated the booking. However with the new ‘My Sitters’ list you have the option to view the profile pages of local babysitters and select which sitters receive your bookings, giving parents complete control.
For urgent bookings (less than 24hrs notice) there is now an additional button option to select all local sitters when making the booking to ensure that parents have the best chance of having their booking fulfilled.
Coming Soon – Request Call
SafeCircle is working on a new feature for parents to be able to request babysitters to call them prior to making any bookings. This will offer parents additional reassurance in being able to talk to babysitters in their area before selecting their preferred sitter to add to their ‘My Sitters’ list. Just another little way we can show parents they can trust in SafeCircle.
Coming Soon – New Profile Pages
We are updating our babysitter profile pages to include a biography section which tells you more about their childcare experiences and skills. More information about our babysitters will help parents to make informed choices when booking with SafeCircle and allow them to trust in our sitters’ skills and experience.
We are always looking to improve our service so if you have any comments or suggestions we would love to hear from you! Get in touch at:
