A little more about us: From the very beginning, we have been against the idea of “just babysitting.” We don’t even like the term “sitting” because it’s way too passive. Our belief is that children are so impressionable, and that it is our privilege to spend time enriching their lives through engaging, creative, and fun activities and conversations that teach them, support them, and build their confidence. This goes for our tiniest, most vulnerable little ones whose brains are developing at such a rapid pace, the ones who hang on every word, every toy we dangle, every funny face we make, and every time our eyes sparkle when we smile at them, hold them, and hug them. Every moment is an opportunity to actively aide in their development, growth, and happiness. Our purpose is making every moment count. For the past 9 years, we’ve grown from just a few babysitters, nannies, and families into an amazing network with hundreds of talented caregivers and hundreds of loving families. We stay connected with both sides, always striving for the best possible fit all around. We have helped many of our babysitters and nannies find multiple jobs over many years and have helped support them through the great challenge of being an aspiring writer artist, actor, and graduate student, and also earning a stable income. Plus, we love to socialize and hold meet-ups, host CPR classes, hold workshops, help with sublets/roommate searches, support each other in creative pursuits, and more.

Our entire network of babysitters is fully screened, personally interviewed, and background/reference checked. We speak with every family personally so that finding babysitting jobs through us is safe. 

We look for at least two childcare or childcare-related references and a clean background check. We work with babysitters and nannies who are passionate about working with children, are fun and professional, adaptable, accountable, giving, and trustworthy. Responsibilities include homework help, reading assistance, educational games, going to and from school or activities, snack preparation, basic meal preparation, general tidying after the kids, kids’ laundry, loading/unloading the dishwasher, and helping families as much as possible. Babysitters and nannies in our network are paid directly by families and we never take a cut of your pay. Our rate recommendations are between $20-$25/hour for each position.
