I joined SitterFriends on a whim as I am a College Student who has been a nanny since my Sophomore year in high-school. I love meeting new families and working with different kids. I can honestly say that I love the app and the ability for me to get comfortable in knowing these families before I arrive. The staff who run this are incredibly professional and genuine allowing me to ask questions if need be! I recommend people use this service on both ends whether looking to be a sitter or needing a sitter!

I'm a sitter on SitterFriends, and let me tell you, it's incredible! The staff is incredibly kind and caring, and the families I've worked for are amazing! The app is super easy to navigate, and it's made the payment process for sitting jobs hassle free.

This is probably the most useful babysitting app I have had the experience of using. With an easy to manage profile , parents can see what experience you have, what's your specialties, and many more. I started using the app when it very first came out and I absolutely love it! I've gotten many jobs from it and all the parents love me. It's a safe an reliable way to find or provide quality child care!

SitterFriends is a great way to find babysitting jobs in the area. The app is so easy to use and you can even customize your general availability. The payment is done entirely through the app, which leaves no worries of negotiation or lost checkbooks! The parents are all very nice and the messaging feature allows you to talk to the parents before going to sit. The app even reminds you when I have sitting jobs coming up, and texts all the information you need for the jobs! I've been so happy using the app and finding babysitting jobs in my local area!
