Babysitting from a neighbour

Yepstr has increased its popularity since our launch in 2015. Today, we have more babysitters than any other service in Sweden. Hiring a babysitter is not the same as hiring a someone to mow your lawn. Babysitting is, what we call, a relationship service. We know it’s very important for you to be comfortable with your babysitter so that you can have a long and successful relationship.

Babysitting that everyone can afford

The hourly rate of a babysitter is on average 120 SEK/hour after RUT-deduction depending on age and level. You can easily pay through the Yepstr app. To make sure that you are comfortable with your babysitter we recommend that you book interviews, which of course are completely free of charge.
