How do I sign up?

Signing up is really simple. Click on this link. You will then receive an email asking you to confirm your account. You must confirm your account before your profile will be live on SureSitter.

You can now login to your dashboard and complete your profile. Completing your profile is really important. This is a parent’s first impression of you so try and provide as much detail as possible. We require all child carers to have a profile picture. Please ensure this picture clearly shows your face. Your profile will only be visible to parents when your profile is complete.

Are there any age restrictions?

You must be over 18 to join SureSitter.

How much will it cost me?

Nothing! There are no charges for joining SureSitter. Once your profile is complete you will be able to connect with families in your area and receive job offers.

How do I get paid?

Parents will pay you directly at the end of each job and you keep all the money you earn, we do not take a percentage.

SureSitter does not determine what rate you are paid. Parents and childminders agree on this once we make the introductions.

What information will parents see about me?

Parents will see your first name, profile picture and your bio. They will also see how they are connected to you and any reviews that have been left by other parents that you have worked for. The profile picture is compulsory.

How will I get notified of job requests?

You will receive notification by email. You can then go to your dashboard to see details of the job and parents before deciding to express interest or reject the job.

How do I close my account?

If you wish to permanently close your account please email us at and we will close your account.
