Flexible plans to suit your family's needs

Background checked sitters & nannies
Every caregiver available to book on UrbanSitter has passed a background check, including a SSN Trace, Public State & County Criminal Records Check and a check against the Global Watchlist.
Last minute - no problem!
Count on us for backup when you need it most: sick days, stuck working late, parent-teacher conferences. For last minute jobs, most sitters reply in 3 minutes or less.
