Who are we?
Barnakademin was founded in 2008 and has since then provided parents and families with hundreds of professional babysitters all over Sweden. We aim to make life easier and more flexible for parents as well as to develop and train children.
With the help of a babysitter, your child will have further opportunities to develop. Studies show that children who spend time with adults (especially young adults), who do not belong to relatives and teachers, receive great social and communicative benefits later in life.
Barnakademin advocates something that we call Creative Childcare. In today's society where digital media "steal" the children's attention, it's extra important to find moments where children can engage with more stimulating and creative things.
Creative childcare places a greater focus on creativity, communication and and stimulation of the children's minds.

What do our parents say?
I have tried several childcare companies in Stockholm, but Barnakademin is the only one I have been 100% satisfied with. We have had two babysitters from them for two years and they have both been amazing with our children. Engaging, reliable and knowledgeable! Also, the contact and commitment from the headquarters have been excellent! (translated)

Me and my husband both had extremely much at work for some time and had a very hard time getting everything to work at home. Got a recommendation from a friend who was extremely pleased with Barnakademin and I decided to try. One of the best decisions we have made in recently! Lina is absolutely amazing, but above all, my stress level has been significantly reduced. Me and my husband have also got a lot more time for each other and usually meet up in town for a date once every two weeks! ;) (translated)

We had a really hard time finding a babysitter that was able to speak German here in Sweden until we got in contact with Barnakademin. Since our kids are half English and half German we really wanted to find someone that could communicate with them in German so they would improve their ability to speak. Now, we have had help from Annika for a little over a year. She has been nothing but amazing and the kids are much more comfortable speaking German! We are incredibly satisfied!
