Meet your Sitter
I personally work for you to find the best sitter match for your family. After the sitter is assigned you can meet her virtually and even chat online to ask questions or give details about your family.
Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!
Activities and Fun
Your sitter will arrive at your home with activities and games prepared for your children's preferences and ages. We have seen how exciting it is when the professional sitter arrives on your doorstep with their bag full of activities.
When you book a regular event, talk to me about preschool and school aged activities that can be purchased on a monthly basis.

Ariell watched our son with autism, and they immediately clicked. I was most impressed by Ariell because I had to leave in a hurried state, spewing out quick directives to her. She was so calm and warm, leaving me to feel at ease having her in charge. Our son had a blast with her and he was very well cared for, even with his special needs. She really had a way with him, which is of great comfort to any parent!
Brandi is really great! She was on time, came with very little notice, and wasn't flustered that we were 10 minutes late getting home. The kids enjoyed her and she got right down on the floor and was playing with them when we left. She got them to bed actually EARLY which was awesome because they were getting over colds and had school the next day. We'll request her again!
She was a great sitter! Our son Kyan was immediately comfortable with her presence and they took to playing with his toys and games as soon as I walked out the door. Received a phone call – with an apology for bothering me – asking an important question that I forgot to cover. When I came home from the evening my son quickly asked when they could do it again! My wife and my own fears we felt from the initial usage of the service and having someone unfamiliar watch my son were a thing of the past. Angela will definitely become a "regular" to care-taking our son in the future!
I am just wanting to let you know that Querube did an absolutely fabulous job with my boy. Jonas took to her straight away and said that he had lots of fun. When I need a sitter again, we would love for Querube to come over and watch Jonas. Thank you for your help and have a great day!
We will be requesting Querube again in the future! She was great! It can't is not easy to keep 3 Ten year olds for as many hours as she did and the kids ask "when is she coming back?". We thought she was absolutely wonderful as a sitter! ...
The best way to describe Madison is "sunshine"!!! She is so full of energy and very sweet with our son with autism. She managed him so well and kept him active and happy. She was a joy to have in our home!
Our experience with Brandi has been very positive. She is very calm and collected, very creative working with the kids. My kids like her a lot and that says more than my words. Brandi, please keep up the good work!
Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Kelly was wonderful. She was early, professional, and the kids loved her. I will be requesting her again.
Maddie was a wonderful sitter to our 8 and 11 year olds. The kids loved her and she was great about engaging them in activities - swimming, games, arts and crafts, etc. We would definitely recommend Maddie, as well as request her again in the future.
I'm still amazed that I called the SeekingSitters office at 6 pm on a Sunday, spoke with a LIVE person, signed up and had a sitter at 8:30 am the next morning in Austin. Knowing that I could travel half way across the US and find a safe, reliable service like SeekingSitters is awesome! Thank you, thank you!!!
My kids and i loved having nicole sit for us. she was fun, flexible and great w/ my two very high-energy kids.
I just want to take a moment to compliment Jessi on a fantastic day of babysitting. She was very interactive with my son and took great care of him and not only that, she cleaned up all of his toys, emptied the dishwasher, put dishes in the dishwasher and pulled the trash cans back up to the house. None of this was expected but was a very pleasant surprise and nice to come home to. She's great!!!
SeekingSitters has been a fantastic addition to our family. The sitters bring awesome activities and they even clean up before they leave! Thanks SeekingSitters!
