Yoopies and Mini Me Madness
If you’re a busy parent like me then www.yoopies.co.uk is a brilliant online platform for helping you manage your childcare.
I couldn’t live without it, especially when last minute plans crop up or I need to be in town for an emergency meeting. There are so many childcarers on Yoopies that don’t mind picking up a last minute job and helping you juggle everything – but you’ll also find nannies and childminders for longer term care. A lot of the carers are vetted to check they have DBS checks and qualifications in place too to give that extra peace of mind. When you find a carer that you like, it’s also easy to book them again and even pay them through the platform – what more could you need?
Yoopies is easy to use and all you have to do is enter your postcode and requirements and the details of lots of local nannies, childminders and babysitters pop up on the screen. You can browse through them and even refine your search to include terms like ‘first aid trained’ so you can find the exact person that meets your needs.
I love it and it’s great for those moments when you are not expecting to need childcare and when your friends and family are not around to help. So give it a try – there’s also a new app coming soon which will allow instant childcare to be organised in just 10 minutes from your iPhone – and with the last minute sitters on the app all being verified by the Yoopies team, you really do get total peace of mind.
