Our babysitters carefully follow your instructions, and their responsibilities include watching the children, making a meal and snacks, and cleaning up after the children. Our babysitting service will be your go-to resource for sitters for when you need to run your errands for the day, get together with a friend, or enjoy a lunch or dinner date.

At Home Babysitter

Our sitters are extensively screened, interviewed, and background checked by the Motherhood Center. They are CPR certified and understand the Motherhood Center standards of professional childcare. Most of our babysitters are Nannies-in-Waiting. That means your child benefits from being taken care of by Nannies that are looking for long term families. As a parent, that means you know that they are experts in child care. Find a babysitter now.

Event Babysitter

Our event babysitting services allow you and your child to attend the event. While the sitter cares for your child, you can comfortably visit and enjoy the event (weddings, conferences, sporting events and other celebrations). Professional babysitting services are usually booked by the wedding planners, event organizers, or families. Our sitters will be dressed appropriately for the occasion.

The babysitting rates for this service are $25.00/hour with a minimum of 4 hours. Prices may vary depending upon the type of event, the age of the children, and the number of children.

Hotel Babysitter

Hotel babysitting services will take care of the children either in the hotel room or take them to activities offered on the hotel premises such as the pool, garden, or other designated activities areas. Reservations are generally made by the parents or the concierge. Clients are responsible for the babysitter’s parking fees. The fees can be charged to the hotel room, paid directly to the sitter or can be added to the babysitter invoice.
