Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!

Rae was great with my boys! She was very attentive and left me a nice detailed report of their evening. They thoroughly enjoyed the arts and crafts project that they did with her. My oldest even begged me to go out the next weekend so they could have her back!
Our first experience with SeekingSitters was a wonderful one thanks to Barbara. My two year old son took to her right away and was excited to show her all of his toys. Barbara's kind and playful demeanor along with her obvious experience and confidence with young children made us feel at ease in our son's safety and care while we were gone. I would love to have Barbara back to our house soon. What a wonderful experience!
Barbra has watched my children a couple times now and is more than wonderful! I have a 10 month old and feel 110% comfortable leaving him under her supervision. She's so motherly with him. My 7 year old is also very fond of Barbra. They always do crafts and last time Barbra and Emma baked caked pops (which was a perfect activity and treat).
I appreciate Barbra and her attention to my children while I am away.Thank you so much!
Kristi has been a life saver for our family! She has watched our girls for over 3 years. Staying over and getting the girls ready for school, picking them up from school, feeding them, helping with homework and getting them ready for bed all while making it fun for the girls! Highly Recommended!
Rae was great. Our boys loved her because she likes dogs and plays hide & go seek. We were very pleased and want her to come back. Thanks!
Barbara was very hands on with both children and caring. This was the first time anyone outside our family babysat our children and they were very comfortable with Barbara or as my daughter would say barbie. Definitely would like Mrs. Barbara to watch the kids again we trust her like family. Thank you for taking special care of our little ones!
BEST SITTER EVER! Alexandra A came to watch our kids yesterday, last minute might I add, and was phenomenal. Professional, light-hearted and open, very easy to work with... I'm surprised and impressed with everything/everyone. Thank you all so much for the wonderful service you provide! And, a special thanks from Nathyn & Lenore, my little ones.
Brittany did an excellent job with our daughter, who is on the autism spectrum. She arrived early to learn about our daughter's rules and specifics relating to her personality. She also had great enthusiasm and was always engaged with activities and arts & crafts. Our daughter had a great time and is really looking forward to having her back again soon. Thanks, Mary R.
Alex was the greatest. She sat for our son Zachary overnight and she did a wonderful job! We have 4 children(2,9,11,15) with Zachary being our youngest and this was the first time we left him overnight with someone other than family. This was the first time that anyone (with any of the 4 childrens sitting experiences) showed concern and asked about separation anxiety issues with Zachary. He doesnt have any but I was so impressed that Alex took the time to make sure it would be a pleasant transition for us leaving our little guy! Alex is wonderful and we will definitely have her back for more sitting time in the future!
I just wanted to email you to thank you for assigning Laura M. to our family last evening. The boys had a great night! She played w/ them all evening, and they baked Lego Cakes because our boys love Lego (she even brought all her own ingredients!!!!) The boys went to bed on time, and there was no TV or Wii. Jack and I were so impressed, and then to top it off she wrote us a thank you note. Wow!!!! Again, thanks so much.
Being new to the area, I was quite nervous about finding a reliable and trustworthy sitter for my daughter, 4, and son, 1. I was thrilled when I found the great service of SeekingSitters and even more impressed when I met Justina. Justina was professional and prepared with games and fun plans for my kids. They had a fantastic time with her and my daughter has already asked when Justina can come back. She especially enjoyed doing arts and crafts with Justina and is looking forward to fun times again on Justina's next visit. Thanks SeekingSitters and Justina for making part of our arrival in town less stressful!
I would like to leave feedback for Justina since she's one of our favorites! I was running late leaving the house with the toddler mid-bath and she jumped right in and started helping out. I appreciate her initiative and sweet heart. My kids have a great time with her and I feel 100% comfortable when leaving.
Krista did an awesome job sitting for my almost 3 year old! When he woke up Saturday morning, he told me that he wanted more Krista! This was our first time using SeekingSitters, but we were very impressed. Our son had a wonderful time, the toys were all picked up when we got home, and he was sound asleep in bed!
We cannot thank you enough for the excellent job you and your sitters did in caring for our children at the Baptist Health Physicians Event. So many had beautiful crafts when they left and I overheard the parents remarking how happy their children were with the time spent with Seeking Sitters. I'm sorry the time went past 9pm for a few children. Apparently the parents were having such a great time at the event they didn't realize how quickly the time went by. THANKS FOR THE PICTURES!!! Nice touch.
Ashleigh H. is wonderful with our 3 year old daughter. She comes prepared with educational activies, which our daughter looks forward to with each sit. Katelyn is always excited to see Asheigh, her friend and "big girl" (not baby) sitter. Thank you SeekingSitters for providing quality, safe, and affordable child care!
Just wanted to let you know that Justina was AWESOME! She was so kind and personable and professional and we felt comfortable with her right away. Ollie really enjoyed her as well, which was wonderful to see. Thank you so much for all of your help and for rushing our application to make last night's sitting possible. We were very pleased with our SeekingSitters experience and will definitely use you guys the next time we're in Jacksonville, and hope to be able to use your Chicago branch as well.
We could have not asked for a better sitting team then yours. They were very professional and all the kids had a great time. Thank you for your service and I will defiantly recommend you to other Commands. VP-16 MWR President
We are extremely happy with Monique! She is truly amazing in being a best buddy to my boys. We like her alot and are always looking forward to having her babysit our boys. We love her smile and laughter. She has a big heart and handles challenging situations with ease. She is a responsible and neat person. I really can't say enough good about her.
Thank you so very much indeed!
Ashley and Krista have been fantastic! I am so happy to have found SeekingSitters.. and you all have become a very important part of our family!
You all have been such an asset to our family and I always know when I leave the kids with a SeekingSitters they are well taken care of! Thanks Heather!
My wife and I loved having Lindsay watch our 6 month old son. We had back to back weddings on the same day to attend and all day we kept getting pictures texted to our phones. I cant tell you how great that made us feel and we were thrilled with Lindsays care of our baby boy. Thanks SeekingSitters!
Our boys loved Jamie. She was very nice and professional. They did art, played blocks, went for a walk, etc. She followed all of our instructions. We will definitely use her again and highly recommend her to other families as well. ...
Hi SeekingSitters, just wanted to let you know that Monique was awesome! She played with Vincent all day and was a trooper when it came to putting him down for a nap - he doesn't like to sleep! Vincent also blessed her with his acid reflux!!!! Thanks.
Krista did an amazing job while watching William and Jacob! She arrived a few mins early and did lots of fun things with the boys. Both boys woke up the next morning asking if I had her number, and when she could come back. William wanted me to call her right away to see when she could come back again. So a big thank you from the Becker Family. We haven't had a baby sitter in soooo long; it was way overdue and much appreciated. I felt comfortable with Krista after meeting her for a few mins, and was able to enjoy our date night.
Beth was the first sitter for our family from SeekingSitters. I will admit that I was a little nervous trusting my children to a person that I just met. I have 3 children ranging in age from 5 to 11. This is the first time that I came home and all 3 kids asked to have Beth again. There is always one that does not like the sitter. She did a wonderful job of sharing attention with all of the kids. She was also able to keep them active and engaged for the day. Thank you Beth, you are a wonderful sitter.
You really are a flagship company and I think you run one of the best businesses I have ever interacted with. I have always recommended you to anyone I know who has needed a sitter. Thank you so much.
Just want to say how delighted and thrilled I was with the help from Lindsay and Beth on Saturday at Blodwyns party. They were so calm and helpful, and just worked so hard in the background to keep the party going. I hardly had to ask them to do anything. The kids really enjoyed the activities they supervised, and the moms who stayed on were so impressed with them they all took their cards and said they would be definitely be using the service in the near future. Thank you so much. Kate G.
Diana "Rae" has been amazing with my three young children (ages 4 months- 4 years). We aren't the easiest family to sit for having a young baby and a son with special needs. But Rae handles every situation with grace and makes us feel comfortable with leaving the kids at home. I highly recommend her for any family!
I just wanted to let you know that I have been extremely happy with all the sitters we have had through your service. Barbara, Emily N. and Ellen have all been spectacular!
Alexandra did an exemplary job sitting with Kylie tonight. I am very pleased and look forward to seeing her again on Friday!
Meghan has been great! Thank you for working so hard on your end to find such a great fit for my family. You offer a great service.
Angie was awesome! It was a really long day and the first time the boys had been at home with a sitter for over 8 hrs. I was worried they might get a little cabin fever, but they had a blast. They said they had a great day and had so much fun. As with all the sitters I've had from SeekingSitters, they come in with so many fun ideas to keep the kids happy, energetic, and fully engaged!
Hi I am Hannah and I am 9yrs old. Alex M. babysat me and my sister. Alex is the best babysitter ever because we played a bunch of games, such as apples to apples, hide n seek, wii and we talked a lot about movies and animals. That is how Alex was amazing.
Our kids absolutely adored Lindsay! They did puzzles, games, made balloon animals, etc. The kids had so much fun! We arrived home to both the kids asleep in bed and the house picked up and quiet. Lindsay even left a little thank you note to the kids which they found when they woke up in the morning. We'd love to have her babysit for us again!
Thank you so very much! :) You guys are the absolute BEST!
My Girls LOVED Laura. They took an instant shine to her, and asked me to go out the following night so she could come round to sit again!!! That is a compliment! She played american girls with them and they coldn't stop talking about her the next morning. Definitely recommend this lovely person.
Laura was terrific. . . timely, professional, and fun. We would love to use her again.
Justina babysat for us for a full week and my girls loved her! They loved playing with her and she did different activities with them daily. Even after she left, one of my daughters kept asking "When's Justina coming back over?" We will request her again and again!
Ryleigh and Addisyn loved Krista! My daughter was asking for her when she woke up Saturday morning. She was extremely responsible and we loved the detailed report. We will be using Krista again in the future! She was great with my children from the moment she walked in the door and when I arrived home my house was cleaner than when I left :)
We had Barbara sit for our two kids last night and she was great! The kids enjoyed doing puzzles and crafts with her and they had a lot of fun! We would love to have Barbara back again! Thanks! Kari B.
