Current Babysits policy regarding Coronavirus

By Babysits, 2 min read

July 17, 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.

Ireland is now in Phase 3 of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business. There are some specific changes with regards to education and childcare.

The following facilites are now open:

  • all adult education facilities
  • creches, childminding facilities and pre-schools
  • summer camps
  • youth clubs
  • all indoor and outdoor amenities for children
