mormor is a babysitting service
for working moms that was launched by working moms.
We know what it’s like to take care of a child,
so we don’t only pursue convenience for our customers.
We value the feelings of our sitters
and that of the children in their childcare,
so we have created a system that allows them
to be able to communicate each child
with a smile and a “relaxed mind and body”.
Mormor is a babysitting service that focuses solely on childcare.
This is why mormor has a clear idea of the skills it looks for in its sitters.
The more services you provide outside of childcare,
(ex: housekeeping, sick childcare, multilingual support, carpooling, etc. )
the more you distract from the care of your children, which is crucial,
and something might happen to the child
if you take your eye off the ball for a moment.
At mormor, we limit our services to “childcare only”
so that anyone who loves children, regardless of qualifications,
can work with peace of mind.
Currently, we have a wide variety of sitters,
from students who want to become childcare workers,
to housewives who have finished raising their children and grandchildren,
and freelancers who work full-time.
Mormor’s sitters do not require qualifications.
We are always looking for potential sitters who love children
and want to make the most of their free time,
or students who want to gain experience for the future.
We will provide detailed introductory training for those with no experience.
If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact us for more information.
Babysitting services are becoming an increasingly popular option
as more women are entering the workforce.
With the support of many customers and sitters since the start of the service in 2012,
we have been able to grow step by step.
In the meantime, we are still facing a number of problems that loom large.
There are still many women who want to work but are unable to do so because of waiting lists for children, the barrier between first and fourth grade, and the lack of places to take care of their children. There are not enough childcare facilities, not enough childcare workers, etc., to solve the problem of waiting lists for children..
Under these circumstances, “babysitters” are being looked to as a new option for childcare. As women’s work styles are becoming more diverse, not only in terms of corporate jobs, but also freelance and home-based workers, the babysitting service is becoming more and more popular. There are more and more opportunities for babysitters on top of the existing childcare system.
Babysitting jobs are open to people of all ages and stages of life as no national certification is required. You can work flexibly according to your own schedule, which is perfect for housewives raising children, students, and those who want to work a double shift.
In an increasingly diverse and complex society, mormor hopes that more and more people will get involved in child-raising, and that we can improve the environment surrounding our children with children who are building the future.
I worked at a nursery school for 6 years and started working as a nanny in 2016.
At first I was a bit nervous, but through the training I learned the job in a way that was easy to understand, and now I find it rewarding to work in a job that allows me to spend time with children one-on-one, which is different from my job at nursery.
In addition, over the past year or so, I’ve been able to watch children in various stages of growth, from 0 years old to elementary school students, and at the same time, I’ve been able to experience the individuality of each child, and I’ve been able to discover and learn through my work every day!
Currently, I am able to work both at the nursery and as a nanny, but I am able to work without strain, thanks to the staff at the head office who offer me requests based on my preferred days, hours and days of the week.
In addition to providing safe and responsible care for our customers, I also want to pay attention to children’s curiosity and small discoveries, and provide them with a joyful and reassuring environment where they can share joy and laughter with each other.
With no qualifications and no experience in childcare, a close friend gave birth to a baby, which gave me the opportunity to take care of a 0 year old for more than half a year… and that’s when I decided to pursue this career.
Mormor’s babysitting service is casual, but at the same time, we have a stimulating training and tense environment in order to deal with customers and children in a professional manner.
The simplicity of only sitting children is what makes it so easy to start and continue.
After that, I became a full-time employee, and through my involvement with my sitters, I realized that following up with them on their way to the job site is an essential part of the job. Now that I have become a mother, I feel even more strongly that I want to create a better environment as a member of mormor so that each of our customers and sitters can enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle.
I have been able to see the cuteness and growth of many children, and we have enjoyed sharing in the joy and excitement of the time we have spent with them, thinking about what we would do if we had grandchildren in the future.
One of the most memorable moments recently was when I returned to work after taking a break from work due to an injury.I have been visiting him for several years since he was one year old. While he was eating, suddenly he stopped eating and he looked straight at me and said, “I’ve been waiting for Mrs.S to come.”
I was so moved by the fact that he had grown up to be a kind-hearted brother that I couldn’t say a word.
Even I who have family, work and hobbies am able to continue working at mormor and I look forward to meeting children.I know firsthand what it is like to be a parent, and I will continue to do my best to make mothers feel at ease as well.
