SitterTree has been a lifesaver for Peachtree Church. Every week I am met with incredible sitters who are competent, capable and who really enjoy what they are doing. Knowing that SitterTree has created a platform that works tirelessly to support us as a church has made all the difference. I could not be more thankful to have SitterTree as part of our church team.

All the safety checks you require-and more.
Plus, detailed reviews from other preschools.
We personally review each profile—twice—to ensure you have the details you need to select a qualified child care provider.
We collect provider certifications and award CPR, COVID vaccination, abuse awareness training and other badges—so you can make an informed selection.
All providers clear extensive background checks, including national criminal, sex offender and motor vehicle checks.
I run a Children’s Ministry program at a large church. Without the help of fun, sweet, and energetic sitters every week, we would be in a bind! And it’s so easy and simple to schedule and pay the sitters online. It helps me and my team cut out hours of work of coordinating and cutting checks. I would recommend SitterTree to all families and churches!

Her love and kindness is greatly appreciated.
Jaila is wonderful! She arrived on time and is so easy to have a conversation with and her smile is contagious! She was a buddy to one of our special needs kids at Mount Paran Church in Atlanta and she was phenomenal! I followed up with the mom after church and she stated "my daughter had an amazing time and was humming joyfully while driving home. Please let Jaila know that her love and kindness is greatly appreciated!"

Our regular nursery staff even requested to have her back. . .
Autumn did a WONDERFUL job this morning. She was professional and easy to work with, and our regular nursery staff even requested that we please have her back in the future! Thank you for your time, Autumn.

The sitters are prompt, friendly, and naturally engaging with our kids.
We use SitterTree every week to supplement our serving team. The sitters are prompt, friendly, and naturally engaging with our kids. We have a few favorite sitters, but honestly, I could list every sitter we've had over the past two years since using the SitterTree app for Sunday mornings.

My team needs consistency. If I find a provider we love, can we book them again?

Are there any other fees?
There’s a 3.5% convenience fee for all payments. For a 3-hour booking, it works out to around $1.50.
