Like getting a recommendation from your best friend. Plus, detailed reviews from other moms.

We personally review each profile—twice—to ensure you have all the information you need to select a sitter.

We verify each sitter’s certifications and award CPR, COVID vaccination and other badges—so you can make an informed selection.

All sitters clear extensive background checks, including national criminal, sex offender and motor vehicle.
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.

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.
Having no family help nearby and a changing work schedule, SitterTree is a lifesaver! The sitters are wonderful, great with kids, keep things clean and neat, punctual, and are so personable. I feel so lucky to have them for date nights, school breaks, and anything else that comes up.

A well-qualified applicant within an hour or two.
I’ve used 6 different sitters, each of which has been amazing! It's super easy to post a job and I usually have a well-qualified applicant within an hour or 2. Paying is quick and simple. SitterTree has a text help number that must be manned basically 24/7 because I've never not received an immediate reply to a question.

Confident I will have a trusted person to watch my daughter.
Tori is amazing, she is so attentive to my daughter, warm and friendly. She was professional, great at communication, reliable and punctual. I love that she provides me check-in texts. Tori has been my sitter for 3-4 times now. My daughter is excited to see her each time, it shows the bond forming between them.
