Babysitter or Nanny needed?
Find your reliable nanny or babysitter with Oppas Madelief!

Dear parents,  

My name is Iris van der Maarel and I am the City Captain for Oppas Madelief Leiden and surrounding areas. I’m running this local company whilst also studying Medicine at Leiden University. Oppas Madelief found that many families, especially expat families, have trouble to find a reliable nanny or babysitter. That is why I started this local babysitting service. I worked as a babysitter myself for many years, so I understand what parents find important, but also when they need a babysitter. We can arrange a fixed babysitter for one or more days during the week, or we can find a flexible babysitter for in the evenings. Everything is possible, all you need to do is ask!
Do you need a nanny or a (last-minute) babysitter? Please call me or send me an email, and I will find you a nice and reliable sitter.

You can also contact me for all other queries, I love to help!

A reliable nanny or babysitter
We understand that your children mean the world to you, so a reliable and trustworthy babysitter is incredibly important. That is why we screen all our babysitters before we place their profiles online. We check if the babysitters fit the Madelief profile: reliable, enthusiastic, polite and responsible. We look for girls (or boys) that like to work with children and are very punctual! Our selection procedure consists of 3 rounds: profile check, Social Media check and a personal face to face interview. Only babysitters that we have personally selected and screened can be booked for jobs at Oppas Madelief and take care of your children. We also offer our babysitters First Aid training which is hosted by Red Cross, our partner. 


Last minute babysitter
Is your babysitter or nanny sick? Do you want a spontaneous night out? Or does your work meeting last longer than expected? For us, this is not a problem at all! Please shoot me an email, a Whatsapp message, or give me a phone call and I will start the search for a babysitter, right away!

Our Oppas Madelief services
We offer you different childcare services, depending on your wishes and needs.

1.       Flexible babysit service
When you have a subscription, you can book a babysitter as often as you want. Whenever you need a sitter, you just have to book one! The last-minute service and babysitter-gets-sick service are included in the subscription, so you can call us whenever you need a sitter.
This subscription is EUR 14,99 per month which allows you a worry-free experience of finding a babysitter. All you need to do is call or text us!

2.       Fixed babysitter/ nanny
Choosing a fixed babysitter or nanny is a very good option instead of daycare, preschool, or after-school care for your children. Your nanny can bring and pick up your children from school, play with them, help them with their homework, cook dinner before you come home and help with some light household duties. On top of that, your children are already in their home environment and they can be brought to sport lessons and other activities. Would you like to find out more about the cost of this service? Kindly refer to the prices on our website.   

3.       One time babysitter
Do you only need a one-off babysitter? That is also possible!
For only EUR 17,99, we will arrange a nice and reliable babysitter for you, also when this is last-minute. You can always meet your sitter in person beforehand to ensure you both feel comfortable.

 4.       Babysitter at events, birthday parties or weddings
Are you organizing a party or wedding? And do you or your guests have children? Or can you use some help when throwing a kids party? With one of our babysitters, both you and all your guests will have a great time! We have carefully selected all our sitters, so you will always have a reliable, spontaneous and energetic babysitter for your festivity! Contact me for more information. 

In addition to the cost of the Oppas Madelief subscription for either a fixed or one-off babysitter, you also need to pay the babysitter yourself at the end of the appointment. The hourly rate depends on how much experience and qualifications the babysitter has. If your children are asleep you are allowed to pay less as your babysitter can do something else than watching the children, which seems to be fair enought, right?!

Please find below our recommended hourly rates.
