May 4, 2020 - Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many parents are struggling with childcare. It is not only parents who work as essential service providers who are in need of a babysitter for their children. Parents who work from home and single parents may also find themselves struggling to find a babysitter. This is why we want to give our community the best support possible.

Taking into account the guidelines from GOV.ie and the HSE, we are trying to give our community the best possible advice. At the moment for parents and babysitters who can no longer physically babysit/hire a babysitter to work due to the corona crisis, we have started two new features, namely remote babysitting and online homework assistance. For any questions you can contact our customer service.

The changes to the public health guidelines that will come into place next Tuesday 5 May are:

  • people will be able to go up to 5 kilometres from their home to exercise
  • those who are cocooning can leave their homes for exercise as long as they avoid all contact with other people
