Parents appreciate updates. Send a chat during each job to keep them informed. Only sends photos if allowed.

Sitter Pro Tips


Social Media Check

You get one chance to make a great first impression. Consider changing your privacy settings or keeping all content sitter-professional.


Private booking

We love when sitters connect with families and churches. If they would like to book you directly, outside of the app, let us know and we will charge them a Finders Fee.


Not employees

SitterTree does not employ any sitter. You work for yourself. Which means, you get to decide when, where, and how much you work. It also means, you cannot collect unemployment from SitterTree if you decide not to work.



We are considerate

Cancellations should be for emergencies and illnesses only. Repeated cancellations will result in your account being closed.


Sitters not doctors

SitterTree does not recommend any sitter to administer medication of any kind to children or pets. 



SitterTree does not recommend any sitter to drive children or pets.
