Meet your Sitter
I personally work for you to find the best sitter match for your family. After the sitter is assigned you can meet her virtually and even chat online to ask questions or give details about your family.
Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!
Activities and Fun
Your sitter will arrive at your home with activities and games prepared for your children's preferences and ages. We have seen how exciting it is when the professional sitter arrives on your doorstep with their bag full of activities.
When you book a regular event, talk to me about preschool and school aged activities that can be purchased on a monthly basis.

We've used a couple different sitters through SeekingSitters, and they've all been wonderful! One brought crafts to do with my daughter, and she is still playing with them! Another sitter brought games to play. My daughter had such a great time and didn't want either sitter to leave. We can't wait to use the service again and have them back to our home!
Your sitter was amazing with our twin 3 year olds. The girls were so excited to see her the second time she sat for us that they barely noticed we were leaving. In fact, I think they were eager for us to leave!
Aimee was great. My daughter loved playing with her and wants to "play" with her again soon. I felt totally at ease while I was out enjoying the evening.
We absolutely love Suzanne S and I can't say enough wonderful things about her. My daughter loves her and even ran up to her and give her a huge hug yesterday afternoon when she arrived (not common for my child when it comes to sitters).
Our every experience with Yvonndra has been great. Both my boys absolutely love her! They had a fun time and felt very comfortable with her in their very first time. She always has fun activities and knows how to keep the kids entertained and happy.
She keeps every detail in mind, and it's just nice to have her watch your kids. My boys actually ask to see her, and I sometimes feel like I have to arrange an evening for my husband and myself to get away so the kids can have their evening with Ms. Ashley (Yvonndra)!
We truly enjoyed having Jennifer as a sitter for our 5 year old daughter. She engaged our daughter as soon as we walked in the door, which was very reassuring. They had a great time together. We're looking forward to having Jennifer back as a sitter.
Your sitters are excellent. They always come with lots of fun books and other things to do. My son can't stop talking about what a great time he has with them.
My daughter was married in Rosslyn, VA last weekend and we needed someone to watch two one year old boys during the reception. The parents live in NV and NC and neither had left their child with a non-relative before. However, all the relatives were invited to the wedding. The mothers of both boys called ahead and spoke to you about their concerns and became most comfortable with your service and sitters after you answered their questions. Amy met the moms at the hotel (Hyatt Arlington) where we had set up 2 cribs in our suite. The boys were asleep and seemed happy when we all returned late that night. THANKS! Your service and a flexible sitter allowed us to celebrate knowing the boys were in great care.
Last night was our first night out, using a babysitter for our 8 month old baby girl. Our sitter was wonderful! I felt at ease as soon as I met her. She was great with Charlotte, and when it was time for bed, she did the bedtime routine we asked for, no questions asked. When we came home, Charlotte was fast asleep, all toys put away, and we were thrilled. We look forward to continuing to use SeekingSitters. Thank you for such a fabulous service!
We were visiting DC last weekend and found SeekingSitters online. Our sitter was fantastic last Friday. I am so impressed with Seeking Sitters and our sitter - the report cards that she did for each child was a nice touch. Thank you so much for arranging this for us. We had a great time in the city for my husband's birthday and with your help and the sitter's - we had no worries about the kids.
Thanks again- I will be tooting SeekingSitters' horn for quite some time!
Hello! It seems that I always need childcare at the last minute. I feel very comfortable in using this resource and have developed a huge level of trust in them. I requested a sitter less than 24 hours once again. Ms. Katie once again replied and stated that she was available. My son remembered and liked her. When I told him, Ms. Katie is coming back, he was so happy. She arrived on time, and genuinely seemed interested and happy to see them again. The sitter took them to the zoo, she called me to check in, and even sent me a picture of them while they were at the zoo. When I returned home, the children looked clean, and reported that they had fun at the zoo. She completed the paperwork outlining their day which made me smile. This service is so helpful and so needed for the unpredictable life of being a parent. Thanks!
Tonya was great with the kids we'd love to have her back again!
Your sitters are complete life-savers! They always step right in, completely seamlessly even when it's their first time babysitting for us, and our son seems to take a liking to each sitter we've used. They are all so confident and very good with our son!
Just a quick note to thank-you for matching us with Cassie. I'm thrilled to report that my son took to her right away - a surprise since he can be slow to warm up to new people. We are confident that Cassie's warm and engaging personality and her energy and enthusiasm will have our son looking forward to her weekly visits in the months to come.
Jodi was amazing. The girls had a great time and the photo she sent of them eating lunch was a big hit! I have recommended your service to the coordinator of family services at the Canadian Embassy and will be forwarding contact details to her.
Cassie showed up on time and ready to watch my 3 kids. She brought games and activities for the kids to do. We are vegetarians and Cassie was very sensitive to that when it came time to cook them dinner. The kids had a great time!
Suzanne was WONDERFUL! My son loved her. I can't rave enough about her.
I wanted to let you know what fabulous job Jenn did today for us. She is AMAZING! Thank you so much for your services, you truly saved my life today! I will definitely be a repeat client and a walking adverting for your company.
Thanks for your help with my daughter last night. I understand that the sitter called you because my daughter fell ill, and I appreciate your support! Meghan did a fantastic job (my son loves her too!) - you really have an incredible group of sitters and we couldn't be happier.
Suzanne is so fantastic. My 15month old really bonded with her, and they had a great time. My daughter was stimulated and engaged the whole time. I felt so comfortable walking out the door and leaving Suzanne to care for my child.
We have had a wonderful experience with your service. We are truly very grateful!!! Both our children have been extremely happy with Sasha's care. She is amazing with children!!
All of the sitters we've used are awesome!!! My son loves them. They are extremely responsible and always ready to play fun games with my very active 5 year old ! :)
Mindy was great! The kids loved her and all was in order when we returned. She's a keeper.
Cathy was awesome! From the first minutes that she met our almost-4 year old, she and he were laughing and playing. She was completely responsible, prompt, and safe. She has good common sense and I had absolutely no problem leaving our son with her. Nate looked forward to seeing her each night that we used her, and since we came home he has asked for her repeatedly. I wish she lived in NYC!
My girls absolutely loved Jessica. She played games with them and did crafts. Some people are just meant to work with kids and relate well to them and she is one of them. We look forward to having her watch the our girls again!
WOW! I called my daughter this evening to check in and asked how things were going. She was so excited and said "awesome!" She said she was having such a great time and that these sitters were helping her learn not just sitting around! What a great feeling came over me to hear her excitement and know she was being so well taken care of and that she was having an extremely positive, interactive and fun experience. Thank you Lisa...I am so grateful to have discovered you and your husbands service.
I couldn't have asked for more. When the sitter arrived at the house, I quickly felt confident and comfortable leaving my three young children with her. They had a blast and she took very good care of them. I will definitely use SeekingSitters again!
I was singing SeekingSitters praises when we were moving. It's so nice to have such dependable, high quality babysitting. Takes some of the stress out of moving. You really run a great company, thanks!
I just wanted to write in and say that the sitter you sent was wonderful! On-time even in DC traffic, trustworthy, just an all around wonderful babysitter. My daughter was unfortunately nicked by our dog's tooth while she was here and she got the situation under control before she called me. Many times in the past when something happens I get a phone call with a crying child in the background which makes the dread in my heart all the worse. She handled everything the way I would have and then went above and beyond by sending pictures via phone. I came home to a new activity the children had participated in with her every day (necklaces made from straws and drawings with cutouts) and the kids refer to their time with her as a playdate. We will definitely ask for her again and would recommend her to anyone for a great babysitting experience.
My daughter was very positive regarding her experience with your babysitters. You saved my evenings during my business travel, and I was so happy that my husband could join me for those important events every night!
Thank you so much for your great help, you have done a fantastic job. I am very thankful.
Thank you so much for providing such wonderful sitters while we have been here in the US. We have felt completely at ease with the sitters and we have really enjoyed the opportunity to take some time out for ourselves in a hassle-free way.
