We have assembled a group of
experienced sitters to care for
your child in your home as independent contractors. They are chosen for their responsibility, professionalism, and
integrity. All of these sitters live locally, and most are homeowners themselves.
They all have references on file that have been verified, and are experienced
in all phases of childcare.
They give their
time and attention to those in their care while you are away.
They feed the children during regular meal hours and tidy up the kitchen afterwards. They play or read to
children (if the children desire) and with babies, change diapers as needed.
have only one responsibility: to take care of your children. Therefore, they are not
domestics. They are not there to vacuum, dust, or throw a load of wash in while on an hourly job, so
please don't ask. However, if you hire one of our sitters as a live-in while you are on vacation, they
will do light housekeeping (keep your home as spotless as you left it, and do the children's laundry
as needed). They will not admit anyone into your home without your permission. They are there to insure
the safety of your home and your children while you are away.
All of our sitters sign contracts to work exclusively through the office. Please do not ask them to sit for you other than through this agency. They are not permitted to give out their phone number. If they did, they would jeopardize their standing with this agency. Please make all reservations through our office.
Please email or call us to book your sitter as early as possible.
The more notice we have, the easier it is to accommodate your needs.
• Have three alternate phone numbers available for emergencies.
• Please provide food for sitters during usual meal hours.
Please let us know beforehand if your child is ill. Our sitters need to know so that they are able to take precautions.
Our office is staffed Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For your convenience we also have 24-hour voice mail which is checked frequently for after-hours bookings.
