Process


Our proprietary process at The Babysitting Company is designed to yield a perfect match between sitter and family. To begin the hiring and selection process, please fill out the “Request a Reservation” form or call The Babysitting Company directly during normal business hours.

After a requisite ‘Request a Reservation’ form and client interview has been completed, The Babysitting Company will comb through its extensive group of exceptionally qualified Babysitters in order to find the best sitter available for your specific needs, one who will connect with your children and deliver a safe and secure babysitting environment.

Your Sitter


Once your sitter is chosen, we will send you a profile that will include full name, contact information, biography, letters of recommendation and a photo, provided that you’ve booked at least 24 hours in advance. We work carefully with clients to create sitting scenarios in which all parties are happy.

To meet your varying needs, sitters can be available any time of the day or night, for as many hours, days or weeks as required. We are also able to accommodate last-minute and special requests, and as is our policy for all reservations, a 4-hour minimum will apply.

Cancellation and Modification Policy


We strictly enforce a 24-hour cancellation and modification policy for all standard babysitting reservations.

If the reservation is canceled or modified with less than the required 24 or 72 hours notice, then the minimum, 4 hours, will be charged to the credit card provided at the time the reservation was made. Cancellations and modification may only be made by speaking with The Babysitting Company directly or with a time-stamped voicemail. Cancellations or modifications by text, by e-mail or with the babysitter will not be honored. There are no exceptions.
