I joined Sittercity and immediately heard from several wonderful sitters. The service is amazing for my peace of mind!

Expecting a baby? Search for a newborn nanny now, or begin your search now for nannies with infant experience for when you return to work. You may also be interested in baby nurses who can help you during those first few weeks when you need extra help adjusting.
What exactly is a nanny? Nannies are a bit different from babysitters in the sense that they usually have a regular weekly schedule with a certain family. These may be college students working their way through school, or career nannies who spend their life caring for children. You can choose between full-time nannies and part-time nannies depending on your family’s weekly needs. If you are not sure whether to call this person a nanny or a babysitter, that is often a personal choice. When in doubt, we encourage you to post a nanny job. It’s also good to have a backup nanny that you know and trust so that you have child care covered if your usual nanny calls in sick.
How much should you pay your nanny? The average hourly rate varies depending on where you live. Look up your state on Sittercity’s rate calculator.
Sittercity is the pioneer child care website, and should be the stop in your search for quality nannies. We have thousands of experienced nannies, and you can narrow your search based on qualifications and your family's needs. You can also post a nanny job and let the nannies come to you.
