GotSitter lets parents and sitters schedule with ease

Remember the last time you and your husband had a date night?

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. 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.
