100% Safety Record
Over One Million Events Nationwide

As a mom of young children, I personally know the anxious anticipation when awaiting the sitter, wondering if she has been screened properly, does she have her CPR and First Aid, will she engage with my children. But the minute the door opens with a SeekingSitters Professional Sitter and we see the bright pink SeekingSitters t-shirt and S.T.Y.L.E. bag, my worries are alleviated. I immediately remember the process that the sitter undergoes and know that she wouldn’t be at my doorstep if she hadn’t passed all the tests to become a SeekingSitters referred Professional Sitter. We treat every screening this way: We wouldn't send a sitter into your home that we wouldn't be comfortable having in our own!

Our Mission

Thank you for entrusting your children’s safety with SeekingSitters referred Professional Sitters. This is our mission, to help families nationwide understand the importance of a proper screening in hopes to stop unnecessary harm that could have been prevented had a thorough background screening been performed.

We personally know why it is so important to perform a thorough background investigation on every sitter who cares for your children.

Through these experiences, we work to build the safest sitting community for families across the nation.

How it Works

Whether you need SeekingSitters for a one-time occasion or a full-time need, each family must be approved through the member verification process. The online application is easy to fill out and you can even start requesting sitters the same day!

We do all the work for you!

As soon as your membership is approved, you will have access to your personal online account where you can request sitters, view the photos and profiles of your area’s current babysitting team, update your family’s profile and set your sitter preferences. You can also request activation in another SeekingSitters location for use on travels.

On Demand

And the best part, all of this is delivered on-demand. Request a fully vetted, experienced sitter from the convenience of your phone and sit back while SeekingSitters does the rest. You are able to communicate with your sitter through the app and even get updates during the event.

Request on-demand Professional Sitters from your app.

We have actively working professional sitters ready to work at a moment's notice. Our service does not require you to sift through profiles, interview sitters or conduct your own screening process. And your charges are conveniently processed through the app.

The Screening Process


We perform a face-to-face interview determining that each approved sitter meets SeekingSitters babysitting S.T.Y.L.E.


A hands-on verification of previous childcare experience including but not limited to reference verification, work history review and education verification.

Records Screening

Thorough and hands-on screening of public records performed by a real live licensed private investigator! Records include but are not limited to personal identification verification, SSN fraud alerts, local and national sex offender network check, civil and criminal record searches as necessary.

Character Evaluation

Personal character evaluation based on several variables identified in the background screening process as well as through the face to face interview with SeekingSitters personnel.
