    We make some information available to anonymous users of the site:

    • Contact-details and phone numbers of the respective local partners per commune
    • A limited view of the babysitting profile (i.e. no photo, no indication of age, no place of residence) without the possibility of contacting them
    • Links to related organisation that offer complementary services to babysitting, such as day nannies or au-pairs

    The participating communes offer a babysitting hotline that is accessible without registration. It includes a phone number to contact the respective partner.

    In order to find the most fitting babysitting hotline, use the "Find a babysitter" button and choose the commune that suits you best.

    May I change my account details?

    May I change my account details?

    You may consult your account details at any time using the "My account" button at the top center of the website.

    Since we verify your address- and contact-data in order to offer the best possible protection for our babysitters, we do not allow you to change such data yourself. Should you need to update any of that data (since you might have moved, gotton a new phone number, etc) please do contact your local partner in charge of your account.

    The same terms apply to changing your login data.

    Why am I required to register?

    Why am I required to register?

    Only authenticated (validated & logged in) parents will be able to access all parts and functionalities of the babysitting.lu website. A babysitter's profile picture, their age or place of residence is visible to authenticated parents only. Also, parents will have to set up accounts and have their authenticity validated by a local partner of the project before they can contact any babysitters.

    We require parents to register and have their data verified in order to protect the rights and privacy of our babysitters, many of whom are minors.

    Verification of your data gives the babysitters are certainty that you really are who you claim to be. Your data, such as your address and your phone number are automatically added to every request you send to a babysitter

    What information is required during registration?

    What information is required during registration?

    We care for our babysitters' rights and privacy. In consequence, we are required to verify your data before we may validate and unlock your account as a parent.

    In order to verify your authenticity, we ask you to supply the following information:

    Your name, address, phone number and e-mail address.

    One of our local partners will be contacting you based on that information in order to verify your data. Please make sure you supply correct information in order to make this process as simply and fast as possible.

    I already have an account

    If you already have an account with us and if it has already been unlocked, you may use all aspects of the site and contact all available babysitters. You may still need to log in to the website if you haven't done so recently.

    In case logging in or contacting babysitters doesn't work, please check the following things:

    • Did you receive an e-mail from us containing a link that you clicked in order to have your e-mail address confirmed? Did the confirmation succeed?
    • Did you receive an e-mail from us, notifying you of the successful validation of your account?

    If your problems persist, please contact our local partner in charge of your account or contact us using the contact form at the bottom of this website.

    Your account will be validated

    How to gain full access to my account?

    How to gain full access to my account?

    Full access to your account and to all babysitting.lu functionalities is given in two distinct steps:

    • Having registered on babysitting.lu, you will be sent an email in order to confirm your e-mail address. This confirmation is necessary in order to proceed to the next step.
    • Once your e-mail address has been confirmed, login to the site is generally possible, but access to restricted functionality (such as contacting babysitters) is not. One of our local partners will contact you in order to verify that your account has indeed been requested by you and that you contact data is correct.
    • Once your authenticity has been successfully established, your account will be unlocked by this partner.

    Please note: Verification of your account can take several days, depending on the availability of the local partner. If you're in a hurry to find a babysitter, please consider using the telephonic hotline indicated in the upper right corner of every commune.-Hotline

     

    How long does it take?

    How long does the validation take?

    It can take some days to do the validation. This also depends on how long it will take to contact you by phone or personally.

    During this time, you will not be able to contact a babysitter on your own. Please contact your competent Babysitting Hotline, if you need a babysitter during that time.

    Why is there an account validation and how does it work?

    Why is there an account validation and how does it work?

    The rationale behind account validation is to prevent babysitters from being contacted by people who may have other goals than finding a babysitter. So that our validating your accounts before you have complete access to the babysitters and their data is a means to protecting minors' rights and privacy and preventing abuse of the babysitter.lu website for illicit reasons.

    The local partner that will be in charge of your account - depending on the commune you're going to select during registration - will proceed to verifying if this person actually exists, if their address and contact data is correct and whether they themselves have registered on our site. Only after careful checking will your account be unlocked.

    Please note: Validation of your account might take several days, depending on the availability of the respective local partner. You will be unable to contact babysitters on babysitting.lu while awaiting validation. In case you'd urgently need to services of a babysitter during that time, please consider using the babysitting hotline.

    May I do short-term requests?

    May I do short-term requests?

    We discourage from creating short-term requests. Since babysitting.lu is not an online booking system (we're only enabling you to choose and get in touch) we cannot guarantee the babysitters' response times. Also, since your requests are being forwarded by email (and shortly also by SMS) you getting feedback from them on short term depends on the respective babysitter's responsiveness.

    Please do also remember that most babysitters are still going to school and that babysitting is something that they may be doing - among other things - in their free time.

    So that a short-term requests always risks a rather low probability that you will find a babysitter. Please consider this and start your search a few days early.
