Virtual childcare to help you work from home.

Work From Home Helpers connects parents to Helpers who can keep kids engaged through educational and creative video calls.

How does it work?

Work From Home Helpers is a directory of wonderful Helpers who can engage children in educational or creative video call sessions. Helpers are skilled in entertaining kids aged 3+ and we have both tutors and experienced nannies on our platform. If you still have questions, check out our FAQ page.

Search for a Helper

You can search for a Helper based on the ages they have experience caring for, the types of services they provide (arts & crafts, homework help, language learning, etc.), their hourly rate, and more.

Book a Session

When you’ve found a Helper, send them a message and set up an introductory call. Currently, payments for sessions are arranged directly between the Helper and the parent/guardian. We are working on a payment service via our website and it will be available soon!


Once you’ve scheduled a time for the session between your child and the Helper, you can set your child up with whichever video platform you and the Helper agree on, and then enjoy some time to yourself.

We only accept the best Helpers

Feel confident in the knowledge that all Work From Home Helpers are reference checked and have great experience working with kids. Take a look at a few of our amazing Helpers below or click here to search for a Helper now.

We've had some great feedback...

“What a huge success! I wasn’t sure what to expect with a preschooler and online learning or fun. We had tried a few follow along games online and Findlay didn’t really get involved, so when Findlay not only managed to sit still for the whole hour with Katya, but got off the call asking when he could play with her again there was no denying it was a hit. An impressive feat for a boy that does not stop (or listen!).

He warmed to Katya immediately and I could half hear him chatting away in absolute ease while I was in the back room with my 1 year old. Katya also took the time to really understand and find out what was interesting to Fin allowing him to lead the session in wild and wonderful ways. Double thumbs up and I will absolutely be using this service when we can. Thank you!”
