About Mynder


Mynder was created by mums who understands how difficult it can be to juggle their work, family and social life. We’ve all been there when we need to find a babysitter for unexpected last minute work meeting, for a night off with our partners and friends or you have a job that doesn’t fit in with the formal child care system. Mynder is here to help with all those scenarios and more.

We are passionate about helping busy mums and dads find trustworthy, reliable and available babysitters when you need them without having to do the leg work. We’ve pre-screened every single one of the carers in our database and they have all passed the 9 step Parent Test.

Our mission is to create a network of great quality child carers that you and your children will adore. So, all you need to do is make a booking through our quick and easy to use app and leave the hard work to Mynder!

Who Are We?

Jenny Vanderhoek (CEO)

I’m a mother of two young kids so I know first-hand how crazy and busy life gets as a working parent. I’ve worked in the corporate world for the last 10 years and know how difficult it can be to find the right support network when you require it and for it to be affordable. I’m passionate about providing quality child carers for you and your children whenever you need it. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions on how we can better service your family.

About Us Lisa Middleton2

I have worked in Children Services for the past 20 years, commencing in centre based care moving into recruitment and now as a coordinator. I am a mum to an 8yr old girl who keeps me entertained through many of her extra curricular activities such as dancing, musical theatre and soccer. Therefore I understand the importance of quality time.

In my working life I enjoy working with children and their families and I realise that it is difficult to find the right person to look after your child. My role with Mynder is to assist in the recruitment process of experienced, energetic, professional babysitters that I would feel comfortable leaving my own daughter with.
