At Sittercity, Trust and Safety is paramount to our every operation. We often get a question of how our families on the site are verified and/or vetted.
When a family joins our site, we utilize the information they provided at registration and routinely screen through Family Watchdog (a National Sex offender database).
We do not meet these families or require any member on our site to complete background checks. It is important to be aware of internet safety while utilizing the platform and know how to make informed decisions when accepting a job.
You can find additional information on safety for sitters here.
