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.

Adeola was great with our two boys. She took good care of them and they both enjoyed her company very much. We would use her again without hesitation.
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!
Angela immediately conneted with my 21-month old upon first meeting her, and asked all the right questions. We were very happy with her and will plan to use her again! -Cathy
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!
Super Sitters! Consistent with rules and VERY popular with little ones! My boys have loved each one! They have been very frugal and respectful of our home, doing litle things like saving leftover milk in sippy cups in the fridge.
I wish I could recommend this babysitting service to everyone in Greater Austin with children! Seeking Sitters does thorough background checks on all of their babysitters, and the prices are more than reasonableparticularly to their "VIP's" (Very Important Parents). Parents who are in their VIP program receive discounts on local partner businesses and services, which is a bonus! The best part of all is that the kids love their hand-selected sitters, and they're the toughest critics. I highly recommend checking out http://seekingsitters.comyou'll never want another babysitter again!
Sarah was great! Our daughter had a great time with her. We hope we can use her every time.
Natalee is great. Both of my children love her and talk about her all of the time. They can't wait until the next time she is going to be at our house. She made my husband and I very much at ease when we left the house.
Laura did a wonderful job with our son. She kept him busy and happy. She kept track of many details about the sitting session which helped me with his feedings, naps, etc later after she left. We love her personality and felt like she is a good fit for our family.
Brandi has sat for our 2 small children many times and she has been wonderful! She has great energy with the kids and her experience shows. She is always on time, if not early, and she is very creative. She is an absolute asset to SeekingSitters and a very well rounded caregiver! Our 3 year old always asks when Brandi is coming to play again.
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!
Nikki was wonderful! She was prompt, extremely friendly, easy going, and was a natural fit for us. Our 2 children adored her and said she was a lot of fun and they were also very comfortable with her. The three of them played board games and had a relaxing Friday evening while my husband and I were out. We will definitely request Nikki again in the future, and recommend her to others as well. Thanks again Nikki!
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!
SeekingSitters has been a fantastic addition to our family. The sitters bring awesome activities and they even clean up before they leave! Thanks SeekingSitters!
