    Poppins is a city-based mobile App that enables busy parents to search, book, rate and pay for local (fully checked) babysitters, even at short notice.

    The app can be used by families to build up a network of trusted local sitters that they can contact all in one go, at the touch of a button.

    It allows them to find new sitters when their 'usuals' aren't available, and they can pay through the app, avoiding the last minute trip to the cash machine.

    It provides students/part time works with flexible work to suit their changing schedules.

    Poppins digitalises the babysitting industry, and provides a childcare solution to the 'modern-day' working lives of parents who don't always want or need full time regular care.
