I'm a first time mom and before using this app, we had only hired a baby sitter once. After our experience with SitterFriends, this Mom is going to be having MORE date nights and MORE time for appointments.

This is a great service for those looking to find babysitters and want an extra layer of checks. The app links you up with your friends and It's always reassuring to get a recommendation. SitterFriends is a great service. Highly Recommend.

We had a great experience with SitterFriends today! I'm so happy I found this app. Our Sitter, was lovely with my 15 month old. This is a great service for Actor Moms who have last minute auditions and or need a well deserved break!

I am a single Dad with a 10 month old child. I reached out for more info through the website and received a call within an hour. The contact was very polite and informative putting aside most of my initial questions and concerns almost immediately. Thank you SitterFriends. You made something that generally is scary and difficult super easy!

Today we had the pleasure of meeting Ariana and she was absolutely AMAZING with our three kids. In a 2 hour session my husband and I were able to meet and plan the next steps for our business as well as have some down time. Our Sitter had control the entire time and respected our wish to keep the kids to a certain area of the house. We look forward to using SitterFriends!

This was my first time hiring a sitter I did not previously know, and my first time using an app to find childcare, so needless to say I was nervous and did not know what to expect. However, the app is very well designed with a thorough set up process for the parent, detailing the needs of your children. I was pleasantly surprised! Thank you for the great experience

I joined SitterFriends on a whim as I am a College Student who has been a nanny since my Sophomore year in high-school. I love meeting new families and working with different kids. I can honestly say that I love the app and the ability for me to get comfortable in knowing these families before I arrive. The staff who run this are incredibly professional and genuine allowing me to ask questions if need be! I recommend people use this service on both ends whether looking to be a sitter or needing a sitter!

I'm a sitter on SitterFriends, and let me tell you, it's incredible! The staff is incredibly kind and caring, and the families I've worked for are amazing! The app is super easy to navigate, and it's made the payment process for sitting jobs hassle free.

This is probably the most useful babysitting app I have had the experience of using. With an easy to manage profile , parents can see what experience you have, what's your specialties, and many more. I started using the app when it very first came out and I absolutely love it! I've gotten many jobs from it and all the parents love me. It's a safe an reliable way to find or provide quality child care!

SitterFriends is a great way to find babysitting jobs in the area. The app is so easy to use and you can even customize your general availability. The payment is done entirely through the app, which leaves no worries of negotiation or lost checkbooks! The parents are all very nice and the messaging feature allows you to talk to the parents before going to sit. The app even reminds you when I have sitting jobs coming up, and texts all the information you need for the jobs! I've been so happy using the app and finding babysitting jobs in my local area!
