Meet your Sitter
I personally work for you to find the best sitter match for your family. After the sitter is assigned you can meet her virtually and even chat online to ask questions or give details about your family.
Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!
Activities and Fun
Your sitter will arrive at your home with activities and games prepared for your children's preferences and ages. We have seen how exciting it is when the professional sitter arrives on your doorstep with their bag full of activities.
When you book a regular event, talk to me about preschool and school aged activities that can be purchased on a monthly basis.

We are so excited about this site! Our personal babysitter had to cancel at the last minute due to an illness, so we requested a sitter from SeekingSitters and within 5 minutes Miss Kaitlyn picked up the job and called to confirm. We had hesitations about how our daughter would react to a stranger, but she actually woke up from her nap and stood up and went right to Kaitlyn! Our daughter felt comfortable in an instant! Kaitlyn was great with her and kept up with us on how our daughter was doing throughout the night! Our next date night we will be requesting Kaitlyn, she was so polite and our daughter loved her. Thank you!
Being a single Dad and new to SeekingSitters, I had no idea what to expect, when I decided to use the service for an extended out-of-town assignment. Not knowing any of the sitters, we decided to take a chance with Megan M, and I could not have been happier! Megan was delightful, personable, and responsible. She very cheerfully took on the task of shepherding my four challenging children, with tremendous patience and poise. I am very happy to have found SeekingSitters, and to have met Megan. My children loved her, and she is a great asset to SeekingSitters. Thanks to Megan and Julie for making our event a great success.
Yas was a supersitter. Somehow she managed to play, draw pictures, bathe children, put children down for naps while baking cookies!!!!! Wow!!! What a trooper too, the baby spit up all over her and she still had a smile on her face! I was very impressed...
Thank you so much for sending someone such last minute. My son had an amazing time!
So great! When I got home my 2 year old was trying hard to tell me all the fun things they did and was dancing around "like a bird and an airplane". Stephanie figured out her favorite cartoon and made puppets out of paper bags that looked just like "Max and Ruby" Really Great, will for sure ask for her again!
Kyla was great! My children had a lot of fun with her and are now asking when they can go visit Kyla! This was our first experience with someone we didn't already know and it went off without a hitch! She was on time, professional and yet full of activities and energy compatible with playing with a 3 and 5 year old. We would definitely ask for Kyla again.
I love that I can count on SeekingSitters not just for date nights, but also while I am working or have errands. We have no family here so I would literally get nothing done if it weren't for this service!
We are so pleased with the service. Every sitter we have had has been amazing. I love that they bring additional activities to our house so that my kids have more options. Thank you!!!
This service is a life saver! I have 4 kids and I promise you I couldn't do it without SeekingSitters!
To be honest we were very hesitant using a service like this because, as a mom, I wanted to be sure I knew who my kids were playing with. After using the service 2 times now I can say that I would recommend SeekingSitters to EVERYONE! Love, Love, Love it!
This whole website and system is amazing! I can't believe the responses are so efficient and quick. I am in awe. Thank you so much :)
I have found the BEST sitter through SeekingSitters. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Last weekend we had another sitter and when we got home I told my husband "Man, she was wonderful". His response was "we always say that!". It's true! SeekingSitters is the perfect solution to finding a sitter when you don't have a lot of babysitter options or are tired of your babysitting having other plans. We love this service!
I appreciate SeekingSitters so much. I was in a real bind and you saved my neck with a wonderful sitter for my grandchildren. I will definitely use your services again. - Lynn
We used SeekingSitters for our daughter's wedding and I have to say, it was the best decision I made. Knowing the the kids were in great hands and being able to focus on the things I needed to do made my job as mother of the bride much easier! Thank you so much!!!
Sara was fabulous with both my kids. I have a 1 year old and a 4 year old. She called ahead to see what the kids liked to do and brought crafts for my son. They even did a gingerbread house together. It says something about a sitter when my son woke in the morning and was sad Sara wasn't there. We loved her!
This was my first time with seekingsitters. I think seekingsitters is a wonderful service. From the time we left to the time we got back, Danielle was entertaining my girls. She came with a big bag of activities. My girls really enjoyed their time with Danielle. Very well organized from the food the kids ate, to the activities they did, to the times the youngest went to the potty. Will definitely use seekingsitters and Danielle again
I was very nervous to leave my toddler with a sitter and Marissa was perfect! She made me feel comfortable and knew just what I needed, and my son loved her!
