Looking for a babysitter in your neighbourhood?

Chances are that you will quickly find a suitable babysitter via Oudermatch. By using the map, you can see which babysitters live in your neighbourhood. Oudermatch will keep you informed every week about newly-registered babysitters in your neighbourhood. So, looking for a babysitter? Register for free and see the babysitters near you.

How do I find a suitable babysitter?

Oudermatch shows a short description for each babysitter, a few personal details, and (when available) a photo. The babysitter says a little about themselves and indicates what sort of family they are looking for. On the basis of this, you can make a first selection and send an invitation to the babysitter or babysitters to meet and get to know them. Found a good match? Then you and the babysitter can make further arrangements.

Establishing a good relationship between parents and babysitters

When you've found the perfect babysitter that you want to hire via Oudermatch, it's incredibly important to establish a good relationship. Not only between the babysitter and the child/children but also between the babysitter and the parents.
Good communication with the chosen babysitter is important through the entire journey as it helps build up the trust. 
Another great way to build up the trust is to see references from former employers, school teachers and other. 

Always make your expectations clear to the babysitter regarding hours, pay and duties. Perhaps write it down and keep a copy each as it's easier to avoid misunderstandings this way. 

Other childcare options

Oudermatch not only brings parents and babysitters together, but also connects parents with each other. Parents can help each other by occasionally babysitting for each other, by organising after-school care together, or by simply having their children play together.

Looking for a childminder as an alternative to nursery or after-school care? Then Oudermatch can help you too: many childminders have also registered. Read more about Oudermatch.

Reviews parents
  • The idea behind the website is good, but profiles are not updated. People put in availability and when you ask them it turns out that they are busy with something else, babysitting not being the thing they are doing. Assuming of course that they answer back. Mostly people do not answer, therefore, validating if someone is interested to be on the website and if not thy or administrator should retire their profile. I guess babysitters do not pay for access to the website. I was able to find one person that contacted me back and who would help me out. From my perspective this website is not worth the money I am paying for it and therefore I will be removing my profile.
  • Leuke site, werkt goed, logisch dat jullie er geld voor vragen: wel een puntje: ik heb nu iemand gecontact van wie ik veel later zag dat zij haar account in 2014 erop heeft gezet. Als je je aanmeldt omdat je zo iemand wil spreken en die blijkt allang niet meer actief te zijn, dan is het wel erg zonde van je geld. Misschien kan dat nog aangepast worden.
  • Ik had niet verwacht dat het zo lang zou duren voordat je een reactie krijgt en van sommigen heb ik nog steeds geen reactie. Het aantal matches is dus in werkelijkheid veel lager dan je op voorhand denkt en daar kom je pas achter als je al betaald hebt. De profielen van de oppassen blijken ook niet altijd meer te kloppen. ze kunnen niet meer op de dagen dat ze als beschikbaar staan aangegeven.
  • Snel en eenvodig een oppas gevonden. Hele goeie dienst!
  • Wij vinden Oudermatch een zeer prettige site om mee te werken. Wat wij wel als lastig hebben ervaren is dat zoveel mensen uberhaupt niet reageren op een bericht. Wellicht is het mogelijk om mij mensen aan te geven wat hun snelheid van reactie normaliter is.
