We’re parents…we get it!

Babysitters are hard to come by!

As parents ourselves, we created SelectSitter because we felt like finding a GREAT babysitter shouldn’t be so hard!

We live in a social society and word of mouth recommendations are the best way to know you are hiring a trusted and reliable business, shouldn’t that go for babysitters too?
We know babysitters are like a diamond in the rough… Once you find one, you don’t want to share them because you are afraid their availability will diminish! SelectSitter allows you to share how awesome your sitters is, and also discover new sitters that your friends are using and trusting? It’s a win-win!

We are excited to share our app with you and help you select your next sitter! It is the perfect solution for your next date night, charity event, work commitment or last minute errand!
