During the coronacrisus, we keep our babysitting service available to parents who really need it, for example parents in a crucial profession, self-employed parents, or single parents. Founder Charly van der Straten: "Over the last month, I've spoken to parents, managers, doctors, and CEOs daily about topics such as working from home, childcare, and (online) homeschooling. Everyone is extra careful, and rightly so, but some need help in this area. That's why we are expanding our service for organisations, using careful measures and guidelines."
