Searching for sitters by their availability --that is, finding sitters who have reported availability on a specific date or time -- is easy!
First, navigate to the search menu. Then:
- Enter your search criteria (date & time) in the left rail
- All sitter results that match your search criteria will then be displayed!
The sitter’s profile availability doesn’t match my request exactly. Why?
Since parents have expressed flexibility in their plans, the search will return sitters with ANY overlapping availability - which could be less than, exactly, or more than the desired availability block. Use the calendar on the profile to see the exact time a sitter is free.
What do I do if there are no sitters available in my area?
Many sitters may be free even if that don’t use the specific availability feature (only ~30% of sitters fill out specific availability). You can use the “All sitters” search to ask sitters directly if they’d like to take on your booking.
