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 time with their children every 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.
She loved serving these families by investing in their children and wanted to expand her impact. Soon, two families turned into 20 families, and by the time Jody graduated, her team of trusted Oglethorpe University babysitters was serving 150 families throughout the greater Atlanta area.
Since 2000, sitters on the SitterTree app have invested in thousands of children throughout our city and have developed long-lasting friendships. SitterTree continues to grow, but our vision remains to provide an easy way to book and pay the best child care providers.
