Safety is always a priority.

Your children matter more than anything in the world. When it comes to booking child care, you want the best. The SitterTree app is here to help you find it- every time.

Pre-screening Call

Sitters are proud to share their child care experience, favorite activities, and enthusiasm for working with children. Each sitter completes a pre-screening call with a Specialist to review these profile details.

Background Checks

All sitters are required to clear national criminal, MVR, and sex offender background checks performed by Checkr before applying to any job. Some sitters complete additional background checks to qualify to work with preschools. 

Sitter Badges

Many sitters have certifications from trusted organizations like the Red Cross. Others are certified to work with children with special needs. Sitter badges make it easy to find a sitter to fit your unique needs.

Our child care professional are the best. Literally.


Breathe easy. Your sitter has been rigorously vetted. SitterTree does everything you would do - and more - to vet our sitters.
