We never underestimate your need to have the most important people in your life cared for by the best carers.

We have a portfolio of experienced babysitters and child carers, all of whom have been DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked (formerly CRB checked) and are registered through a stringent screening process.

You’ll only be offered:

  • babysitters who we’ve met in person;
  • babysitters who’ve passed our strict interview process;
  • babysitters we trust.

Our standards are high.

All babysitters have provided at least three references which we’ve checked thoroughly.

All babysitters are assessed for their level of experience and ‘matched’ accordingly.

All babysitters are used to coming to a new home and caring for children who they’ve just met.

We always find you a babysitter whose experience matches the ages of the children they are caring for. All of our babysitters are trustworthy and capable individuals, many of them are trained in childcare and have years of experience behind them. They range from experienced babysitters, qualified nannies, primary and nursery school teachers, medical students, maternity nurses and registered childminders.

Screening process for babysitters and child carers:

  • All babysitters have completed a detailed application form outlining personal information as well as all of their education and previous experience.
  • All babysitters have passed an extensive face to face interview with senior Like Minders personnel.
  • All babysitters have relevant babysitting experience.
  • All babysitters are UK citizens, permanent residents or have permission to work in the UK.
