There are two reasons why you just landed on this article. The first one is that you are a parent and want to hire a baby sitter for your little one. The second reason is that you are a student and you want to make some extra money by becoming a baby sitter and doing childcare. In both cases, a question arises, well no, thousands of questions arise but among them, a very important one. Should you try the experience with a babysitting agency or on your own? How to choose a reliable service? Today, Kidlee tells you about the advantages of babysitting with our (or a?) agency, for parents and nannies!

The advantages of a babysitting agency for parents

Saving time

I might as well tell you, finding a baby sitter is not as easy as it sounds. For example, depending on your needs, you will post a small ad on the good corner. Then, you will receive offers of applications that you will have to process without being able to judge the veracity of the information provided. Afterwards, you will have to schedule interviews with the pre-selected candidates and discuss salary and working hours. In the end, you will have at least 3 weeks to work without being sure to find the perfect candidate.

In this context, it is indeed preferable to call upon a baby sitting agency, in order to delegate all these steps. In order to save time, it is more interesting to choose the childcare service option, which offers already qualified caregivers. This option can be a little more expensive, but the number of advantages that result from it is non-negligible.

For example, at Kidlee, you can register in 3 clicks. Immediately, one of our consultants will take over and process your request. Thanks to a selection of baby sitters according to their profiles and motivations, we can assure you the perfect match and you will only have to meet them, make your choice and sign a contract. Thus, it will be easier for you to be serene and confident! And it's good to let go for a moment, especially since we offer you not one, not two, but three profiles minimum!

Forget the administrative paperwork!

Well yes, when you are a parent, there are always more papers. And this, even when it comes to recruiting a nanny. Indeed, it will be necessary to declare the latter but also to establish her contract.

Choosing to work with an agency will save you from having to negotiate the salary and status of the childcare provider, as these will have been defined in advance by the agency.

With Kidlee, in addition to a quality service, we save you all the administrative hassle, charges and financial calculations by offering you a solution with fair rates for parents and babysitters. And this, while taking care, free of charge, of the administrative support of the families as well as that of our caregivers.

Hello financial aid 

It is important to remember that regardless of the childcare option chosen for their children, all parents have the opportunity to receivefinancial aid ( under certain conditions ) which considerably reduce the cost of their home childcare.

On the other hand, let's face it, being a direct employer of the babysitter implies a lot of administrative hassle when it comes to financial aid.

Going through a baby sitting company can help you avoid this step. In fact, most agencies offer to take care of your entire aid file (CAF).

At Kidlee, we offer you an approximate calculation of the amount of your aid (depending on your situation). We also take care of the preparation of your file (CMG, invoices), all you have to do is send it to your caf!

And with Kidlee, we offer you smart sitting!
