SitterTree App Dashboard for Family

Serving greater
Atlanta since 2000

SitterTree began in a college dorm room in 2000. Jody Stephenson, a sophomore at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, was babysitting for two families.  In between classes, she spent time with their children each week and soon felt she was part of their families. 

While babysitting provided a way to earn flexible income while in college, it was more than a job for Jody.  It was an opportunity to give moms a much-needed break and a way to care for and inspire children.

Soon, two families became 20 families. By the time Jody graduated, her team of trusted Oglethorpe babysitters (10% of the campus!) were serving families thoughout North Atlanta.

SitterTree continues to grow, but our vision remains the same: to harness the power of local communities to provide safe, professional, and engaging childcare.

We hope you’ll join us.
