Interested in BecoMing a Sitter?
Our sitters must be 18 years or older
plus have a high school degree, a minimum of 2 years professional childcare experience, at least 3 professional childcare references, be able to pass a background search, and be CPR and First Aid certified. We pride ourselves on making it easier for parents to find great caregivers, so we vet our sitters through a rigorous interview process. Sitter Scout does not charge you for this service.
We screen all applicants
If you pass our interview and screening process, our Administrators will approve you! From there, you can create a profile and include information about your childcare experience, your availability, and the job locations that you are interested in. Now you're ready to look for jobs and be connected with families looking for excellent caregivers.
check the job board
When a parent requests a sitter it will be posted to a job board. If you are interested in the job, please match to the job online inside your Sitter Scout profile right away. Not interested? Simply ignore the request. Parents will also be able to special request sitters they have used in the past- you will be notified via email when you have been special requested.
Once you are matched to a job, you will receive an email with confirmation details. Please contact the family within 24 hours to introduce yourself and confirm those details. We know everyone has their own preference for handling payment, so we leave that flexibility open between you and the parents. Please note, for all future requests, parents must book you using our online booking system. A job is not confirmed until you see it on your online schedule in your Sitter Scout profile.
No exceptions to this rule!
