Holiday Babysitting Service


★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The Westcountry has so much to offer families holidaying all year round, from the stunning coastline, rolling green hills to the dramatic moorland. Precious family time has never been so much fun!

Whilst the children are tucked up in bed after a fun and active day, why not enjoy an evening out and leave the childcare to us.

Wherever you are holidaying, be it in a tent a caravan a holiday cottage or a hotel, The Parent & Child Nanny Agency can provide an excellent, professional babysitting service to families on holiday in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.

A Holiday Babysitter refers to evening babysitting services after 6pm. If you require a childcare service before 6pm, please book a HOLIDAY NANNY

All our babysitters are qualified or experienced child-carers with the majority being off-duty Nannies, Childminders, Teachers and Ofsted registered childcare professionals.

All babysitters registered with The Parent & Child Nanny Agency are met and interviewed by us, hold a DBS Enhanced Disclosure and have been thoroughly vetted, id and reference checked for complete peace of mind.

A Holiday Babysitter will typically look after up to 4 children. This can be 4 children from different families or from the same family.

As a guide and in relation to Ofsted’s minimum staffing ratio’s we work within the following recommended guidelines:

0 – 1 year 1 Holiday Babysitter to every 3 children
2 – 3 years 1 Holiday Babysitter to every 4 children
4 – 12 years 1 Holiday Babysitter to every 8 children

£40 administration fee is applicable per Holiday Babysitter per Babysit
£14.50 per hour is payable directly to the Holiday Babysitter.

In some rural areas or where we are unable to provide a local Babysitter, a contribution towards travel costs is recommended. We will contact you to discuss if this is required.

All bookings are subject to a minimum 4 hour booking
