Aug 11, 2020 - Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many parents are struggling with childcare. Not only are parents who work in vital sectors often in need of a babysitter for their children, parents who work from home and single parents may often find themselves in need of a babysitter. This is why we want to give our community the best support possible.

By adopting the guidelines from The Ministry of Health Singapore (MOH), we aim to provide the best possible advice to our community. During this time physical babysitting work is permitted but with additional measures. In times of social distancing, we request that our community protect themselves by following the recommendations and adhere to our policy of safe babysitting. For questions, you can contact our customer service.
