No, Kidding Yours is not a day care center neither have own premises to welcome children. We are a babysitting agency and our services are delivered on request to the domicile.

Will parents have to pay for babysitter meals while engaged?

We leave it up to the parents. In any case we advice our babysitters to buy their own meals.


Is the babysitter traveling cost included in the hourly price?

Yes, no extra charge is due for the babysitter travelling cost. As we have a network of babysitters throughout the Algarve, we always try to allocate the closest babysitter available.


Can the babysitter stay overnight?

Yes, our babysitting service is provided during the day time, evenings, but also overnight. We would kindly ask you to inform us if the service may take longer, so the babysitter can be aware.


Can I meet the babysitter prior to engagement?

Absolutely. In case you feel more comfortable by meeting the babysitter before hand, we will be pleased to introduce you the babysitter available. Still, prior to engagement, it is our standard procedure to send parents a babysitter profile. This, includes personal details, studies and background information.


Are nannies checked for background and references?

Yes. Before hired, babysitters go through an effective screening process, to ensure their vocational ability for the job. We also collect background information and references which are shared with parents prior to engagements. At kidding Yours, nannies are older than 21, responsible and trustworthy people that very much enjoy looking after of children.


There are 3 (or more) children. Will I need a second nanny?

 As you may understand, we would not recommend a single babysitter to look after more than 3 children. In case there are more children, please advise us when booking, because you may need a second babysitter. Parents may use this system with fellow families.


How early should bookings be made?

Babysitting is a very requested service in the Algarve, especially during the Summer time. If you are planning your holidays with the family, get in touch with us now. In other situations, we would appreciate 48h advance booking.
