About Us

We know how hard it is to leave your little ones in the care of someone else, especially someone you don't know. For this reason, we work exclusively with qualified professionals that have a degree in childcare and experience in the field. All our babysitters and nannies go through a rigorous selection process and their professional references, training certificates and criminal records are verified.

You can leave assured that your little ones will be in the hands of professionals who understand their development and needs. We seek out caring and responsible professionals with strategies to work with the little ones so that the time spent with them can be as fun and educational as possible.

MyBabysitter is a company created by a kindergarten teacher that emerged from the love of education and childcare and is based on two pillars:

  • To provide an excellent babysitting and nanny service, developed exclusively by professionals with a degree in the childcare field;
  • To provide a service with total transparency.

Working with children must be endowed with responsibility, play, affection, rules and transparency.

Transparency is one of our pillars - Transparency regarding our services and our professionals. That's why we provide a page just for our babysitters so you can meet our team and learn about their qualifications. Also, we provide a direct communication with the babysitter during the babysitting so you can know, in real-time, how your child is doing.

Our company started in Lisbon and due to its success and the recognition of our service’s quality by our customers, we also grew toward the Algarve, Margem Sul, Braga, Porto, Coimbra, Guimarães and Ponta Delgada areas.

Enjoy your day without worries! Our concern is the wellbeing and safety of your child.
