Safety is Our Number One Priority
At Sittercity, we understand how important safety is, which is why we've created a four-step screening process to help you find and hire the right caregiver.
- Complete background checks
- Check trusted sitter references
- Read reviews from parents like you
- Interview sitters before hiring
Through Sittercity's partner, LexisNexis, you can instantly run any of our three background checks, including Enhanced Background Check, Standard Background Check and Motor Vehicle Records Check to provide added security for you and your family.
In addition to background checks, Sittercity has partnered with Family Watchdog to check all caregivers against the most current national databases and registries before they join.
Our goal is to hold sitters to the highest level of standards, which is why all caregiver profiles go through a third-party reviewing process, verifying identity and improving quality.
Before applying to jobs, caregivers must agree to the Sittercity Pledge to ensure they take both safety and professionalism seriously.
Secure Messaging and Monitoring
All messaging that takes place through Sittercity is monitored for spam, inappropriate content and scams. Plus, our dedicated support team is readily available to answer all your safety questions.
