Remember the last time you and your husband had a date
Yeah, me neither.
GotSitter offers families the chance to
schedule babysitting appointments with people they already know and
trust, eliminating the frustration of calling all the sitters in
the neighborhood to see which one is available.
Alternately, babysitters can also find jobs quickly and safely
online with families they are already connected to by posting their
availability on the easy-to-use website.
The service is free for parents for a limited time, and is always
free for babysitters. The safety of all users, families and sitters
alike, is very important to GotSitter founder, Elsa Englund Kayuha,
M.D., which is why public searches of GotSitter members are not
permitted. Families may only view information of sitters in their
network and, likewise, sitters may only view information of
families in their personal network.
Gotsitter.com requires babysitters be at least 13 years of age to
register, and parents of babysitters may choose to be copied on all
communication via e-mail, text message, or both.
