Parents in Bromley now have access to trusted, local childcare, through an easy to use, fun, flexible and hassle free online platform.
The service, launched by Yoopies following its acquisition of Findababysitter.com last year, has been a big hit with more than three million users across Europe to date.
And, the company says, it will allow the parents of Bromley to go out, spend quality time together and rekindle the spark they had before their little ones came along.
Lisa Lambert, spokesperson for Yoopies and a mother herself, said: “Agencies provide a great service but they can be very expensive, through the site we have simplified the process so that parents and childcare providers can chat freely”.
“We do not deliver childcare to the home, we deliver peace of mind. We provide all the tools, help, advice and details of childcare in Bromley. Parents can then register and carry out their own checks, and all payments are made online. We talk them through every step.
“They do not have to make a booking until they have made contact with the babysitter and truly trust the decision they are making.
“We are the only platform allowing parents to re-book on a regular basis, and should a family be heading off to Europe on their summer holidays, they are able to carry out similar searches and book childcare for any destination in ten European countries.”
Yoopies was officially launched last month (April) after it acquired Findababysitter.com in 2017. Formed in 2012 by Benjamin Suchar, and friend and “mummy blogger” Jessica Cymerman, Yoopies has become one of the most successful social platforms of its kind in Europe, and the number one childcare website in France, Italy, Switzerland and Spain.
And, its name change in the UK reflects the wider services that Yoopies offers.
From nannies and babysitters to dog walkers and cleaners, this easy to use service has been designed as a one-stop shop for booking home care professionals. Users simply log on to yoopies.co.uk, search for candidates using up to 50 different criteria and select those that suit their requirements.
It’s also possible to send messages to carers, arrange interviews and once hired make payments through yoopies.co.uk – avoiding the need for awkward conversations and visits to the cash machine.
For those looking for something specific, such as a chaperone for a child’s ballet class or a holiday pet sitter, then ads can also be placed. And to provide additional reassurance, the verified professionals listed are all ID checked and vetted to ensure that DBS checks, qualifications and training are correct and in place.
The basic service is completely free and allows parents to search and send a single message to a potential child carer. A premium service is also available from £9.90 per month (based upon annual subscription) and allows for multiple contacts to be made. Yoopies says it takes verification, safety and security very seriously, but strongly advises candidates are interviewed and relevant checks carried out.
Lisa added: “We provide an affordable, fun, flexible and hassle-free service and want parents to rekindle the spark that first attracted them to each other, and enjoy a social life safe in the knowledge their little ones are in trusted hands.”
