Jazzy was so great with my four month old! She got him to smile as soon as she walked in the door. She was so engaging with baby and easy for me to talk with. She was my first sitter with SitterTree and it was a great first experience. We’d love to have her back!

Our family absolutely loves SitterTree.  No matter who we choose, sitters communicate, come prepared, are professional, and have a great work ethic and attitude. It is so incredibly easy to book, schedule, reschedule, read reviews, write reviews, and pay caregivers.

Maggie W.

Experienced babysitters, every time.



Find providers who LOVE kids. They give the little ones in your care the attention they deserve: whether it’s building elaborate block castles, helping with dinner (in the play kitchen) singing songs, or reading stories, providers will make sure kids have a ball.



No more “sorry, can’t make it” texts 30 minutes before date night. Sitters show up on time (or early), ready to play. They’re responsible, attentive, and clean up when they’re done.



Sitters respect your family’s needs. They stick to your kids’ schedules, send regular updates, and follow your instructions regarding screentime (and everything else).

SitterTree took the stress out of child care.

My daughter had a great time with our sitter, Yidi. She’s looking forward to spending time with her again. Yidi arrived early and was very professional. I also came home to a house that was cleaner than I left it.


Melissa H. 

A well-qualified applicant within an hour or two.

Elza goes above and beyond her duties. She always arrives at our home on time, ready to engage with our son, with a smile. She's kind, compassionate, and intelligent. My child really looks forward to spending time with Elza.


Robyn R. 

Confident I have a trusted person to watch my daughter.

Wow, Eva is truly exceptional! She is warm, kind and very polite. She was very engaging, playful and attentive when caring for our daughter. She was very energetic and "present" and our daughter absolutely LOVED her! What a sweet person and and truly excellent caregiver. We really hope to see her again!

Grow your child care village with reliable sitters.

Wondering if … ?

These are the questions we hear most often. Let us put your mind at ease.

What if my sitter cancels at the last minute?

On the rare occasion that your sitter needs to cancel, our incredible support team is available to assist in booking another sitter- or help make you the next best arrangement.

What’s the hourly rate per sitter?

The minimum hourly rate varies by city. Want to offer a higher rate to incentivize sitters to take your job when demand is high? Go for it!

My kids (and I) need consistency. If I find a sitter we love, can we book them again?

We hope you find sitters who become part of your family. Easily select sitters as favorites after each job. They will be notified first when you post a new job.

You’ll adore your child care provider. So will your kids.
