Our families have told us again and again that the most frustrating part of managing child care is finding new sitters to work with. That’s why we’re excited to announce two new features that make it easier to find and connect with new sitters in your neighborhood!


Search by availability

Need a sitter for a specific time? Now it’s easy to see who’s free.

Our new “search sitters by date” tab lets you filter your options and browse sitters who are available when you need them. Simply enter the date and time you need care, see who’s free in your area, and send them a message or request an interview!

Check it out! Search sitters on your schedule.




“As a parent, one of the hardest parts about hiring someone new is figuring out a schedule that works for both my family and the sitter. Eliminating all of the texts back and forth is a total time-saver.” — Tricia Cagua, Sittercity mom and VP of Marketing

Request an interview

Families consistently tell us that one of the most important steps they take before hiring a sitter is a phone screen or in-person meeting. So we’re helping you get to know sitters with our new interview request feature.

Sitter profiles now include an “Interview” option. When you’ve found a sitter you’re interested in, just select the date and time when you’d like to interview them and submit your request. They’ll have 24 hours to respond!

Give it a try! Find a sitter you like and request an interview.



“When it comes to screening potential sitters, there really is no substitute for a one-on-one conversation. Being able to schedule an interview in a couple clicks helps parents like me get to know candidates, find out if it’s a good fit, and make hiring decisions faster.” — Sandra Dainora, Sittercity mom and Head of Product
