3 Effective Keys to
Stop Misbehavior

Potty Train
In 1-3 Days



Since 1991 we have received many requests for a low cost service that meets the needs of parents seeking local babysitters. At our full service Nanny Agency, we often meet with clients at a Caribou Coffee house near our offices. There, over a cappuccino or tea, parents and care providers get to know each other in a comfortable, safe environment and that's the idea behind The Sitter Cafe.

The Sitter Cafe Is Your Neighborhood Resource
For BabySitters and BabySitting Jobs

Our website is for both families and sitters, providing a virtual neighborhood cafe that brings people together. The Sitter Cafe is a safe, friendly Internet environment where Parents find Sitters and Students find Work.

At The Sitter Cafe, parents may quickly find and contact local babysitters age 13 and older. It costs parents only pennies a day to gain full access to the online search, AD posting and security features of Sitters and care-providers may register and use the cafe FREE OF CHARGE. Best of all, The Sitter Cafe is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so "We're here when you need us".

Our Mission is to maintain the safest, most secure sitter locating service available on the internet. We take extraordinary measures to ensure the safety and privacy of both our registered sitters and our subscribing parents. The Sitter Cafe website employs technology and implements procedures unavailable from any other service of its kind. This includes our "ID VERIFIED" subscriber identification program that works to help protect both families and care providers.

At The Sitter Cafe, both sitters and parents are always in complete control of the information they make available to anyone using the system. You always have the ability to limit the contact information you make available to your unique USERNAME and our secure, internal Private Messaging system. Or you may expand your contact information to include your name, phone, IM screen-name, or other contact preference.

We take additional measures to ensure the safety of registered sitters under the age of 16. First, we inform their parents that they have registered on the web site. Then we return their profile only to parents searching within 5 miles of their location - ensuring that they are only contacted by parents from the local area.

What's Makes The Sitter Cafe Better than other services...

The Sitter Cafe is the only Internet Sitter-Search Service operated and founded by a Full Service Nanny Agency that has been working with parents & care providers since 1991, has been ONLINE since 2000 and has been a member of both The Better Business Bureau and The International Nanny Association since 2000.

Our principal owner is a past board member of The National Alliance of Professional Nanny Agencies and currently serves as chair of the Educational Resources Committee for the INA.

Our unique system of registering sitters is focused in the neighborhoods where our registered parents live. That means when you register as a parent, The Sitter Cafe actively recruits college and high school students from your area. These students become available to your family for babysitting, tutoring, pet-sitting and house sitting. The Sitter Cafe brings people together.

We Work to Keep Sitters & Children Safe and Parents Involved

Kids must be at least 13 years old to register as a neighborhood sitter with The Sitter Cafe. We mail parents notice that their child under age 16 has registered as a babysitter so that they may help manage their child's activity on the website and with babysitting job offers.

If a registered sitter is under age 16, their full profile may be viewed only by subscribing parents within 5 miles. (unless the sitter answers an 'AD' posted by a parent who may be up to 20 miles away).

No other Sitter-Search service offers this level of safety and security for both parents and sitters:

  • ID Verified Subscribers
  • Parental Notification of minor's parents
  • Geo-Coded distance calculations for greater accuracy
  • Real Name and Address required for all sitter registrations
  • Access to Inexpensive ID verification and real Background Checks on sitters
  • Limited Visibility of Young Sitters
  • Availability of Photo Identification
  • Private Messaging for Anonymous Communication - with Instant Text Message Notifications
  • Feedback Rating System
  • Ability to SHOW or HIDE all Contact Information:
        Phone Numbers-Email Address-IM Screen Names
  • Sitter's Last Activity Date displayed in their profile
  • Unlimited anonymous AD posting to all local sitters
  • User Definable AD Longevity - One day to One Week
  • Contact individual sitter's or broadcast a message to ALL SITTERS in your area
  • Save your favorite sitters to your SAVED SITTER LIST
  • Save PRIVATE NOTES about each sitter for later recall
  • Privacy! Sitters cannot search for parents - only for parent's ADs

Even with all of our safety features and local service, The Sitter Cafe can save you 50% or more compared to other sitter search services. An ongoing subscription to our service is only about 14 cents a day - less than the cost of one cup of coffee a week!
