Sittercity Review: More Than a Million Member Profiles

sittercity_aprilSittercity is one of  America’s first,  largest and most trusted online babysitter networks.  Named the best babysitter/nanny-referral service by New York Magazine for 2009.

In addition to babysitters, users can find nannies, pet sitters, house sitters,  dog walkers, elder care providers, and tutors.  All of the sitters listed on the site are over the age of 18 and their profiles include whether a background check has been done, which safety certificates they’ve earned and reviews from past clients.

Sittercity has a four-step screening process which includes checking references, reading caregiver reviews, conducting interviews and reviewing background checks.

The best thing about is that you can try it out for a week at no cost, and then choose either a monthly or annual fee plan. Quick Facts

    We’ve moved 4 times the past 3 years and will be moving again in July. So even if we find someone great to babysit our kids, we’re always on the hunt for a new babysitter. This would be an awesome resource for us!
