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.  She spent consistent time with their children each week and soon felt like she was part of their families. At the same time, Jody was able to earn money for her college education.

Babysitting was more than a job for Jody.  It was an opportunity to care for and build up each child she met.  Soon, two families turned into 20 families, and by the time Jody graduated, her team of trusted Oglethorpe babysitters was serving 150 families in the Brookhaven area.

Since the beginning, SitterTree sitters have invested in thousands of children throughout our city and have developed long-lasting friendships. SitterTree continues to grow, but our vision remains: to build a trusted community of diverse sitters for families and churches.

We hope you’ll join us.
