The app teaches young people how to handle babies and small children

You learn the essential facts about babysitting with specialist-approved information, videos, animation, graphics and photos. The “Hüten” (taking care) area of the app provides an overview of your babysitting duties. Fun quizzes on each chapter allow you to test your own knowledge. Parents trust young people who have attended the SRK babysitting course! The course is offered throughout Switzerland. Here, you can apply for a course in your area. 

This app was developed for the babysitting course and is the ideal supplement to the new course documentation. However, it is also made openly available and free of charge by the SRK. 


This is what the app offers 

  • specialist knowledge on babysitting always at hand
  • cool graphics and animations
  • important information concerning the children you are looking after, all in one place
  • organisation of your babysitting dates and appointments
  • your babysitter pass with you at all times
  • a direct link to the course documents
  • the latest information from the SRK 
Sketch from the concept phase

The app is clearly structured and has two main sections: learning and babysitting. You can also make notes and keep a babysitting diary for your little charges.

Collaboration with Pixelfarm 

In order to create fun but also informative graphics and animations that would speak to the young target group, we decided to work together with the illustrators at Pixelfarm. The result is a huge collection of fantastic illustrations that make handling the app and the materials being presented much easier.

The graphics fit well in the app and make using it entertaining as well as providing a fun approach to the content. Especially given the young target group for the app, this helps enormously in teaching the right way to look after small children.

Her eye for space and form turns every project into a delectable piece of eye candy. She’s a master of that old art that has all but disappeared – drawing by hand with an antiquated piece of equipment, the so-called pencil. This tool is moved over the paper and lines appear... It’s crazy!

Managing projects and solving problems are a piece of cake for her. She can juggle eight burning balls while practicing show jumping on her blind Shetland pony. Easy!
