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.

My kids and i loved having nicole sit for us. she was fun, flexible and great w/ my two very high-energy kids.
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!!!
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.
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!
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.
This was our first time using SeekingSitters, we were assigned Madison. My daughter LOVED her !!! She hasn't stopped begging me to have Madison come sit with her, again !! They had a blast hanging out, playing Kinects and girl talking !! They even went out for a late night snack !! Thanks a million, Madison !!!!!!!
We recently started using Seeking Sitters and couldn't be happier. Allison is such a sweetheart. My children adored her. She played oodles of board games with my 5 year old twins, read books to them and introduced them to silly puddy. They can't wait to have Allison over 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!
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!
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.
Brandi was an excellent babysitter to our 2 children. She was prompt, friendly and enthusiastic. She helped our son study for a science test and spent quality time playing games with our younger daughter. It made our (very rare) date night even more relaxing and fun knowing she was there with our kiddos. We definitely recommend her, and will also request her again in the future.
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 !!!!
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! ...
We just finished our first week with Seeking Sitters and I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are with your servicewhat a GODSEND! The sitters were fabulous and extremely sweet. My daughter loves them! It's great to come home and know exactly what they did each day and what/when she ate. I love that they also come prepared with activities-you've really thought of it all! What a stress relief to know we are guaranteed to have a sitter each week. Our only regret is that we didn't find Seeking Sitters sooner
My kids really loved Jilian. She arrived on time, happy and ready to go. My family instantly took to her. They "reported" that she was fun and they'd love to have her back. She sat for us for 8 hours and I didn't once worry about the kids (although I did check in). I highly recommend Jilian to other parents.
We used Kristin for the first time today and our two children who have never been left with anyone but family loved her. Our 3 year old son can't stop talking about her and wants her to come back soon. She made my husband and I feel at ease as soon as we met her. She jumped right in and started interacting with our children as soon as she was in the house. This was a great experience for us and we definitely will use seeking sitters and Kristin in the future.
SeekingSitters has been a fantastic addition to our family. The sitters bring awesome activities and they even clean up before they leave! Thanks SeekingSitters!
