Each Sitter Badge represents experience or certification by organizations you know and trust, like American Red Cross.

  2. Determine which Sitter Badges are most important to you and your family. (Pro tip: there's no limit!)
  3. Open the SitterTree app to book a child care provider.
  4. Keep an eye out for specific Sitter Badges on each provider's profile as you make your selection.

You're one step closer to finding your dream sitter!

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 sittersĀ 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!
