FAQ

How does it work?

Care seekers post a job to the platform that details their needs, including dates, times, number and ages of children. That job is shared with available caregivers in the area who can choose to apply. Care seekers and caregivers are able to communicate directly and securely through the platform. We recommend care seekers interview and screen candidates using our process highlighted at https://www.sittercity.com/trust-and-safety/parents

What are the details of the program?

First responders and essential personnel will be able to access Sittercity for free for 3 months. When they have selected a sitter on Sittercity’s platform, they will also be able to initiate a background check for free on sitters they want to work with by reaching out to Sittercity’s support team.

How long is this program free?

Sittercity is waiving its fees for three months. Care seekers will pay the hourly rate of the sitter they pick. As we all grapple with this situation, we will re-evaluate periodically.
