Sitters4U is a locally based full service professional childcare and family support care placement agency, operating in all areas of Cape Town, Johannesburg and Pretoria since 2007.

We provide a wide range of services including long term, short term, or adhoc care support to private families, hotels and guest houses as well as event care and film care minders . We set the bar for what is today considered professional family support in South Africa. Establishing the minimum requirements for thorough vetting including police clearance, ITC checks, ID, drivers and other document checks. All of our team members, with an average age group ranging from 25 to 45 years old, are experienced most with 3 years or more experience, have a minimum of matric, most with a tertiary level education. We were also the first in South Africa to require a minimum level 1 first aid and all of our staff have their own vehicles.We personally interview and reference check our team before bringing them onboard. Sitters4U prides itself on offering parents and families peace of mind, anytime.

While we have always offered long term and short term care, event care, film childminding and babysitting services, at present, Sitters4U is redefining the concept of the babysitter, by offering the services of our professional child and Family support teams services on an adhoc or on-demand basis. This means, when using our AdhocCARE services you could hire a night nurse today; a professional nanny this weekend; a PA to assist you with that pile of admin next Tuesday; and an afternoon au pair or full day professional nanny to help when your own au pair or nanny is sick or any of our childcare team depending on your needs to care the kids on the quintessential for date night.

By offering this service, not only we are generating thousands of hours of work for teachers, au pairs between jobs, professional nannies and many more professional women across South Africa, providing the platform to assist professional child and home care staff to find additional work, while supporting families to thrive in their own right.
