All in one place. Unlock your personal network with UrbanSitter: book a local babysitter, nanny or caregiver you’re connected to through friends, co-workers, moms groups and parents from your kid’s school.

You can now find, interview, book and pay your caregiver with our babysitting app. Is it a last-minute date night sitter you need? Do you want someone to be trusted, who has passed background checks? Someone local who knows exactly how to care for a baby and the amenities of your neighborhood? As children return to school, will you need a homework helper or a morning sitter? Or even a full-time nanny, or backup babysitting and childcare when juggling work and after-school pickups becomes too hectic. We've made it easy to book the caregiver or babysitter you need. So you are 100% sure that both you and your baby, toddler or young child can live your life to the fullest.
