About Us

Exeter Babysitters was set up by Exeter mum of three Sharon Pavey who says: 

“I started babysitting myself for a few families in Exeter and realised that there was a real need for an affordable and trustworthy babysitting service in Exeter. Parents didn’t want to have to spend hours looking through hundreds of babysitter profiles just so they could have a much deserved evening out. I soon found myself being contacted by parents who needed childcare so they could work, attend meetings or just go to the gym for two hours and have some precious ‘me’ time.” 

Sharon has a varied background including running her own business selling wooden toys. She has been an actor and director, a veterinary nurse, a librarian, a fundraiser, a marketing manager and a local government councillor. Sharon has lived in Devon for over ten years with her husband Dan and their three children aged 17, 13 and two years old. 

Sharon now manages a small team of experienced babysitters who all live locally, are DBS checked, insured and trained in paediatric first aid. All Exeter babysitters are interviewed and thoroughly reference checked and Sharon personally matches up sitters with families depending on their needs. If you have a date in mind, please contact us to book your sitter today.
