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!
Peggy took care of our kiddos for 2 days, and we all loved her very friendly, outgoing nature. She was very excited to engage the children in games and making arts and crafts - coming up with lots of indoor activities due to the extreme heat isn't an easy task, but she did great. We all loved having her in our home and we recommend her and will definitely request her again in the future.
Brittany sat for us yesterday and we are extremely pleased with her service and conduct. My autistic daughter bonded with her right away and my son also liked her a lot. She is very sweet and caring. She is calm and collected, and got engaged with the children without any efforts. We hope to see her more. Thanks.
My kids and i loved having nicole sit for us. she was fun, flexible and great w/ my two very high-energy kids.
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.
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!
We saw right away that Misty had a great background knowledge with children. She was calm and easy with our son and he felt immediately comfortable with her. We could count on her to understand our sons special needs, and Misty took care of everything with ease. I would highly recommend Misty.
Allyson is a talented, caring and fun childcare professional. She is skilled at time management and balancing her time and attention between children with various ages and needs. Allyson is creative, fun and nurturing and we always enjoy having her care for our children.
My daughter had a wondeful time with Shelby !! Shelby kept her busy the entire evening. I would welcome Shelby anytime !!! Thank you !!!!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
SeekingSitters has been a fantastic addition to our family. The sitters bring awesome activities and they even clean up before they leave! Thanks SeekingSitters!
