For parents

Registration is free with no obligations. You can also receive messages from other users and answer them for free. However, if you find a great babysitter and want to reach out to them first, you will need a Premium subscription.

Premium membership for parents:

1 month: USD 6,95

3 months: USD 14,85 (USD 4,95 per month)

Your Premium membership will automatically be renewed for the same period of time as you originally signed up for. You can cancel your membership at any time.

First, it is important to think about what kind of babysitter you’re looking for. Make a wishlist of characteristics. With this wishlist, you can search for a babysitter on the online platform.

With most babysitting platforms, you’ll do the screening yourself. Make sure you set up an interview and ask for references. Did you find a babysitter you are interested in? If so, you can set up a trial period to see if they will work out in the long run.

How do I plan an interview with my new babysitter?
Before the interview, ask the babysitter about their experience and for references from other parents. You will be able to call other parents to see what they think of the babysitter. Ask questions that you think are important to see if the sitter will be a good match for your family.

The rate for each babysitter depends on several factors, including their age, their level of experience, the number of kids who need babysitting, and the area where the babysitter lives. You should also be aware of the minimum wage in your area. Ask the sitter for their qualifications, what tasks you are asking them to do, and decide on a rate from there.

What you want to know about your new babysitter varies from person to person. What is important to you might not be as important to other parents. Good topics to start with include the babysitter’s experience, their motivation, their availability, and their rate for babysitting. Trust your instincts to determine if the sitter feels right for your family.

For babysitters/nannies

What you can earn as a babysitter depends on your age, experience, how many kids you’re babysitting, and where you live. It’s always best to start with the minimum wage in your geographic location and go from there. For additional tasks, like picking up the kids from school or doing household chores, you can ask for a higher rate of pay.

No. You can add all the information you want to share with parents directly into your profile.

If you’re looking for a babysitting job online, make sure your profile looks perfect. Tell families who you are, what you’re looking for, why you like babysitting, and when you’re available. Ensure you have a good professional photo uploaded, preferably on a neutral background. A good picture quintuples the chances of finding a family to babysit for!

Preparation is the key. There are a lot of general questions most parents will ask you. For example, they might ask you to tell them about yourself, why you like babysitting so much, and what your experience as a sitter is. These are questions you can prepare for ahead of time.

Registration is free and there are no obligations. You can also read and answer messages from other users for free. Did you find a great family and want to reach out to them first? Then you will need a Premium subscription.

About Sitly

No. Registration is without any obligations, is free to all, and does not carry any sort of commitments. You are free to choose if you wish to enter into an interview with parents or a babysitter in your area. Arranging to hire a babysitter or become a family’s babysitter is completely up to you.

Sitly is akin to an online marketplace. Anyone can register or send messages. We do not screen members beforehand, but we do conduct investigations if someone is reported to be sending inappropriate text messages.
It is up to the parents and babysitters to make selections for what they look for on Sitly. We advise our members to carefully work on their profiles and to make safe, smart choices. For example, asking for references and planning interviews in advance. That gives everyone the opportunity to connect with the best babysitter or family that is right for them.

Sitly is an online platform for finding babysitters and families in need of a babysitter in your area. Using the platform, you can easily contact them, plan interviews, and make further arrangements. It’s up to you to decide what babysitter or family is right for you, so use sound judgement when you decide who to contact.

By using the app, you can register, create a profile, and search for the ideal babysitter or family in your area. The app is user-friendly and possesses more features than the desktop version. The app can be downloaded through the Apple Store or the Google Play Store.

My Account

Yes. Go to “Profile” and then select “Account Settings” to cancel. If you would prefer to make your profile invisible during times when you don’t need childcare or you are not actively seeking work, you can hide your profile until the next time you log in. For that duration, your profile will not be visible to babysitters or other parents. If you delete your account and wish to use it again in the future, you will have to enter all your information again.

After logging in, go to your profile and click on “Account Settings.” There is a link that reads “Change Password” that allows you to select a new one.

You need a Premium membership subscription to contact other users. You can go to their profile and click on “Send Message.” As soon as you have done so, we will email that person as well as send a push app through the Sitly app. Anyone you send a message to is able to answer it for free. We never share any personal data such as your email address, physical address, or phone number with other Sitly users. Only you can decide if and when to share these details.

You can cancel your Premium subscription by logging in, going to your profile and clicking “Account Settings”. There, you’ll find a link for “Cancel subscription”.

Anyone with a Premium subscription can contact you. When someone sends you a message through Sitly, you’ll receive an email notification about it, or a push message through the app if you’re using it. You can always respond to messages for free.

As a babysitter, only your first name, photo, and age are visible to other users.

As a parent, only your first name, photo, and number of kids with their ages are displayed. Also, we will show your approximate location on a map, so that babysitters can see how close or far you live from them.

Your exact location is not visible. Your address will be hidden and is not available to other Sitly users.

Your address will be used to show other registered users approximately where you live by placing an icon on the map of your area. This way, parents and babysitters can see that you live in their neighbourhood, and connect with you through Sitly.

We will never reveal your street name or house number, nor will we share your address with third parties.
