Our History

The idea for KidSitter came about over dinner one night, when co-founders Faisal, George and Rajesh were discussing why George couldn't find a babysitter for his four year-old. Teasing turned into a proper conversation and by the time dessert was served, what had started as a discussion had evolved into an exciting business idea.

Once at home, Faisal excitedly searched for a domain. Since babysitters.com was taken, he quickly purchased the next best one - KidSitter.co.uk.

The service was launched 6 months later as KidSitter Islington, with the initial view to launch just in Islington and expand later. However, when enquiries started coming in from other areas, the founders decided to expand to all of London.

From the very first time that evening when the three agreed to work together on the idea, the focus of the business was "trust". Parents need peace of mind when leaving their children to the care of a babysitter. As such, our entire business, our ethos and our philosophy is built upon this trust. You will find that everyone of our babysitters is incredibly trustworthy. This is because they genuinely care about children and are very serious about childcare. Most of our babysitters are nannies, childminders, nurses and teachers by profession. If you are interested in how we find our babysitters, please visit the Our Babysitters page.
