Idea

A babysitting service aiming to target the modern day parent, caring for all ages of children, from babies to teenagers.

247babysits has built an app on iPhone, Android & Website to be released imminently, which aims to allow customers to book a babysitter in real-time, 24/7. The app has been built to provide a simple booking process, allowing last minute and repeat bookings, a planner to review bookings and live chat to speak with the sitter. 247babysits aims to offer a service charging no registration, subscription or booking fees. Our goal is that all babysitters will be interviewed, CRB/DBS & First-Aid checked. 247babysits will also implement 2-way reviews, allowing feedback from the customer and sitter for every booking, creating a loyal babysitting circle.

The UK babysitting market is currently worth £5.6Bn. Over 8m UK families have dependent children, 68% of these use childcare services. The demand for childcare in the UK has increased for over 10 years, with the average family spending £70k on childcare.

Within 2 years of being founded (2011), US babysitting company 'Urbansitters' was valued at $20m and in 2012 they secured further capital funding of $6m. Urbansitters continue to expand and in October 2017 completed a series C funding of $17M.

A directors loan of £4K exists.
