Our Team

OUR TEAM

SitSnapp offers access to over 1500 vetted childcare and teaching professionals who have a tertiary education level, experience, their own vehicles and first aid based in Cape Town.

We continually recruit in order to provide this service. Our goal is to support teaching and childcare service professionals who are between jobs or looking to pick up extra work on occasion. Many au pairs, professional UK equivalent nannies and teachers have struggled to make ends meet over the last 24 months, most with their livelihoods being severely negatively impacted by lockdowns. Many are still between jobs or have taken up roles at far lower rates than years gone by.

We aim to work with local hotels, boutique guest houses, concierge services and restaurants as a way of meeting challenge and supporting these incredible resilient and caring, international caliber candidates who have a real passion for working with children proven through a history of excellent service.
