There’s no one better motivated to reimagine the in-home child care industry than a problem-solving team of parents and experienced child care providers. Not only is child care critical to the fabric of our economy in support of working parents, but it’s also a challenging and life-changing career for so many providers.
57% of parents say that the mental load of parenting is overwhelming.
The demands of today’s parents continue to increase every year. That’s why it’s so important to simplify the way they make connections with child care professionals who are looking for work and passionate about supporting families.
Sittercity has really been a lifesaver for me—I’m a single mom. The whole process is set up so that I can trust the person that I hire.
– Heidi, Sittercity Parent
However, kids are more than pick-ups, nap times, and feedings and childhood is more than just being under the care of a watchful adult. Child care is about the impact a great sitter can have on a child’s life.
We connect families with a local child care professional every 11 seconds.
Helping families and sitters find that magical connection with each other is what we’re after. We’ve seen the power that child care has to transform a family and we’re committed to continually improving that process for everyone involved.
My son LOVES our nanny. He responds to her just like he responds to me when I come home at the end of the day and I love that.
– Corrie, Sittercity Parent
As the first and largest digital platform for finding in-home care, Sittercity, a Bright Horizons company, has come a long way since 2001. We were the first to make online child care an employee benefit and we continue to connect millions of parents with babysitters and nannies every year. We’re radically simplifying the way families search for, screen, and hire trusted care—whether in person or virtually.
