Looking for FindABabysitter.com? You've come to the right place!
Mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers: we’re delighted to announce that findababysitter.com has now officially changed its name to yoopies.co.uk. Here on the Yoopies site, you’ll find the same clear and straightforward system that you were used to on findababysitter… plus with some exciting new additions!
On the whole, not a huge amount has really changed. It’s just as simple to find reliable and trusted childcare on yoopies.co.uk as it was on findababysitter.co.uk, and you can still access all of your findababysitter ads, profiles and messages in your Yoopies account.
On top of this, though, the Yoopies platform also offers a wide range of other services - including tutoring, housekeeping, pet sitting and senior care. Users can filter through over 50 different search criteria in order to find and book the perfect nanny, childminder, babysitter, cleaner or housesitter near them!
What is Yoopies?
Yoopies was born in 2012, in a tiny office in the heart of Paris. Its creators were the CEO, Benjamin Suchar, alongside his friend and mummy blogger, Jessica Cymerman. Their aim was simple: to create the biggest and most reliable homecare platform in Europe.
Nowadays, this dream isn’t far from becoming a reality. The Yoopies platform is operating in over 20 countries worldwide - including the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland - and it’s now being used by over 3 million happy users!
How does Yoopies work?
Whether on our mobile app or online site, the Yoopies platform is super easy-to-use for both parents and providers.
Childcare providers simply need to register on Yoopies with their name, postcode and email address. After this, they’ll be able to post an ad detailing who they are, when they’re available to work, and what prices they charge. This ad will then be visible to parents browsing the site.
Parents can browse by entering their postcode and the type of care they’re searching for. Once this is done, they’ll be presented with all of the available and suitable care providers near them. They can then contact, book and securely pay the provider, all through the Yoopies platform.
It’s simple, it’s flexible and, most importantly, it’s a completely hassle-free way of finding the best childcare, pet care, tutors and housekeepers in the UK!
What are the costs involved?
It’s completely free for childcare providers to register on Yoopies, publish their ad and respond to parents. However, for £9 per month, they can enrol in our Premium service, which pushes their ad to the top of the search results and gives them access to the contact details of potential employers (if the employers have chosen to disclose such details).
Similarly for parents, a basic membership enables them to register on Yoopies, browse through providers’ profiles and send a single message for free. However, to send more messages and access the booking system, parents must upgrade to a Premium Membership. The cost of a Premium Membership begins at £13 per month (if taken as a yearly subscription), although other packages are available through the site.
Is it safe?
Nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of our site. This is why we urge all caregivers to use our verification service, through which we carry out a comprehensive identity check, qualification check and DBS check.
At the same time, these checks are by no means infallible. This is why we also advise all parents to carry out their usual precautionary measures before hiring any provider, since the responsibility ultimately lies with them.
Now that you’ve been formally introduced to Yoopies, all that’s left to do is head over to the website and check it out for yourself!
Whether you’re a carer looking for babysitting jobs, tutoring jobs or housesitting jobs, or a parent looking for the perfect childcarer for your little one, Yoopies is you’re one-stop shop for everything you’ll ever need.
So come on… what are you waiting for!?
