How Sitter Badges Work

  1. When a sitter applies with SitterTree, they clear national criminal, MVR, and sex offender background checks performed by Checkr before viewing any job with your family. (All sitters must earn their Background Check Badge).
  2. Then, sitters earn optional Badges based their unique skill sets.
  3. Each Badge earned is based on verified certifications, trainings, and vaccinations.

Sitter Badges give you confidence when booking a qualified, trustworthy sitter. Now, go take that date night!
