Find the Most Trusted Babysitters and Nannies Near You

Parents and babysitters find perfect matches on UrbanSitter

Chances are you know a kid or two. (Maybe it’s yours.)

Which means chances are you know a parent or two who desperately needs a break from their kid. (Maybe it’s you.)

And this is where you start thanking UrbanSitter. It’s a two-way street that uses Facebook to connect parents with sitters recommended by friends and sitters with jobs through people they already know.

Sitters’ profiles include bios, reviews, rates, a calendar of availability, and a badge to indicate that the applicant has undergone a background check. Sitters can also make note of affiliations with local organizations like daycare centers and parenting groups.

Parents logging on for the first time can browse recommendations and schedule interviews right on the site; return users can quickly scan their roster of favorites to book at a moment’s notice.
