Who are we?
SafeCircle Sitters is a professional babysitting service who have local childcare professionals available for parents to book for evening and weekend babysitting. Established in 2014, SafeCircle Sitter aimed to give parents the chance to have more “me” time whilst knowing their children were in safe hands. SafeCircle Sitters are now Nottingham parents #1 choice for reliable, and safe childcare in the evenings and weekends. Their long record of 5 star reviews from parents sets them above other services in the area (see reviews here). Our families don’t spend hours trawling through 100’s of profiles on local directories to find the best babysitters because we have already found them for our team.
As parents themselves the owners of SafeCircle Sitters were concerned about the non-existent re-evaluation of babysitters on other services, and lack of regulations for babysitting services as a whole. They felt this was a safety gap which needed to be closed, and so SafeCircle Sitters was born.
SafeCircle Sitters remains the only multi-city babysitting service who recruits qualified childcare professionals who have not only been thoroughly vetted but are all interviewed face to face and have their sitters DBS, and Paediatric First Aid reviewed once every 3 years to ensure they remain suitable to be working with children.
“The team at SafeCircle Sitters are pleased to announce that we now serve across Derbyshire, with a new team of qualified childcare professionals ready to help parents have time to be themselves.”
Meet two of our Derbyshire Babysitters:
Emily-Jayne (Private Nanny) – 30 yrs
Emily-Jayne began her childcare career when she undertook her midwifery qualification in 2012. She loved this role and was very lucky to have such amazing experience assisting in the care of newborn babies. Realising her passion for caring for children daily she sought out a new role within a nursery setting where she further qualified at level 3 in childcare and development.
During her time at the nursery, caring for children aged 0-5 years she progressed to being a room leader and a senior member of the staffing team. Emily-Jayne worked in a busy baby room caring most of the time for children aged 3 months – 2 years. After 5 years working within the nursery Emily-Jayne decided to change her working environment and obtained a role as a private nanny to a family with twin toddlers.
Emily-Jayne is flexible and adaptable to meet a families needs and come highly recommended by her other parents who found her to be enthusiastic, approachable and very trustworthy.
Lisa (Deputy Nursery Manager) – 36 yrs
Lisa has been qualified in childcare since 2008 and has worked with children since this time. She has worked in a few different settings and developed her knowledge and skills throughout her career.
Whilst undertaking her initial qualification Lisa worked at a play scheme with children aged 5-11 yrs, after which she moved onto her first qualified job within a nursery, where she continued her education and completed her level 3. Lisa worked her way up at this establishment and became a room leader with the responsibility of overseeing not only the day to day care of the children but also the other staff working alongside her.
Lisa has since moved to another nursery setting where she again has worked on her education and is now a level 5 manager in the nursery where she has been working for the past 10 years. She has been responsible for the care of children of all ages across the setting (0-5 yrs). The setting also offers after school care so Lisa has also worked with children up to 12 yrs.
As a senior member of staff Lisa has been working with children with additional needs and has experience of caring for children with autism and sensory needs.
