Answers to Your Questions

Registration is free, and there is no obligation to upgrade to a paid account. With a free profile, you can receive messages from local babysitters and reply to them at no cost. However, if a great sitter catches your eye and you want to reach out to them first, you will need a Premium subscription.

Sitly鈥檚 premium membership for parents costs USD 6,95 for a single month, or USD 14,85 for three months (USD 4,95 per month). Your premium account will automatically renew at the end of each billing period, or you can cancel your subscription anytime.

Before starting your search, take a little time to figure out what your needs are. Full-time support? Part-time care? On-call help? Make a wish list of necessary and preferred characteristics so you can apply the right filters to our web tool.

We鈥檒l provide you with a list of available sitters. Then you can personally screen and vet promising candidates by asking for references and organizing an official interview. If you find a babysitter that meets your requirements, set up a trial period on Sitly to get in touch with them directly.

First things first – message the babysitter about their past childcare experience, as well as references from prior families. Check in with the other parents to see what their impression was of the sitter.

Then, come up with a list of questions that will help you determine if the sitter will be a good match all around. Review our 10-Step Guide for Parents for examples of questions to ask a babysitter. Finally, when you鈥檙e ready, schedule a convenient time to get together for an interview.

There is no standard hourly rate for childcare services. Each nanny or babysitter鈥檚 rate is determined by several factors – including their age and level of experience, the number of kids who need looking after, and how far away the sitter lives.

In order to come up with an appropriate rate, you should first be mindful of the minimum wage. However, you may need to offer a higher rate of pay to keep things fair if you鈥檙e asking for any help with things like tutoring or chores around the house.

Sitly lets you expand your sitter search to find independent childcare solutions in your neighbourhood – including babysitters and nannies. Choosing the right type of sitter for your family鈥檚 needs means weighing the pros and cons carefully.

Keep in mind that nannies typically work a set schedule and provide dependable assistance with more demanding tasks – while babysitters are usually scheduled as-needed and focus their energy on keeping kids safely entertained.
