HELLO! My name is Paula Costa. I have extensive experience in working with children in a professional capacity. My experience includes working in nurseries and also babysitting and...
Founded in 2012 by a mom of 2 (now she has 3!), Jessica Cymerman and by Benjamin Suchar, the youngest child of a family of 3 girls who are all mothers, Yoopies is the first European social platform that enables parents to find a perfect baby-sitter. It all started when Benjamin’s sister asked him to find a baby-sitter. He realized it was really complicated to find a reliable baby-sitter at the last minute.
He decided to talk about it with his friend, Jessica. She told him that it was indeed very difficult to find a trusted person. They told eachother: “Why don’t we create a social platform where parents can find a background checked baby-sitter? ”Yoopies was born! At the same time, Jessica launches her blog “SerialMother” which is very famous (more than 63 000 likes!). In her blog, she tells her story as an overbooked mom with a great touch of humour.
Our mission is simple and clear: Yoopies aims to help parents find easily the perfect baby-sitter for their children. Thanks to a multi-criteria search (location, experiences, languages spoken, and availability calendar) and thanks to the parents’ recommendations, Yoopies gives all the clues to find the perfect match! With only a few clicks, parents can find a great baby-sitter. Yoopies is not only a website! The platform is intended to be the first online community of parents. Between the tips, SerialMother and a dedicated customer support, Yoopies is definitely on the parents' side. With more than 300 000 profiles, Yoopies is clearly the main reference for parents and it’s not over ! Yoopies launched 4 new services in 2015 : cleaning, tutoring, homecare and petsitting.
It's been two years since Yoopies helps you to easily find a baby-sitter, nanny, childminder and an au pair next to you. It's the first social platform that allows families to find the perfect person based in a multi-criteria research: availability, distance, experience, diplomes...
In addition, linking Facebook to Yoopies, allows parents to increase the possibilities to discover the reviews and recommendations of their network (friends and friends of friends) on babysitters profiles.

The registration is completely free and it will revolutionise the organisation of your family life. You can create a different ad for each of our services.

We also allow you to help and to better assist your elderly relatives. Our platform also allows you to find a reliable and competent homecare help for your loved ones.
