How do I find the sitters that are most relevant to me?

Finding the right sitter starts with a search on Sittercity.

Once you’ve entered your zip code, search results will automatically show sitters with the most complete profiles at the top. You’re most likely to see sitters who are closest to you, have been recently active, and whose profiles include things like:

  • Profile photos
  • Reviews from other families
  • Background checks

If you have more specific needs, use our filters to find the right fit. Search for sitters who:

  • Are available on a specific date and time
  • Have a certain level of experience
  • Are within a certain distance
  • Have access to a car


Once you’ve browsed several sitter profiles, favorite the ones you’re interested in and start reaching out! Even if you’re not sure if it’s a fit, it’s always worth sending a message or scheduling an interview to learn more about a few candidates.
