How we work

How we work

Babysits is a public community platform connecting parents with babysitters

Our model is simple

Search for babysitters or babysitting jobs, get in contact, and plan an appointment. With this easy to use platform, great customer service and an ever growing community of users, Babysits is the easiest way to find and plan childcare services or childcare jobs.

We help parents

We help parents by creating the best search experience. With tons of search options, it is easy to find the perfect sitter for your family. We then facilitate communication between you and the right babysitter through our intuitive messaging service and appointment planner. These features allow you to quickly make a great selection!

We help babysitters

We help babysitters by providing flexibility, freedom, and opportunity. We do not take commission, and give you the power to negotiate your own hours and salary with parents. With our badge system, you are able to increase your visibility to parents and multiply your chances of finding the perfect job. In short, our platform lets you be your own boss.


The Babysits platform is completely free for babysitters. For parents and agencies, we ask for a small fee to contact babysitters.

More on pricing

It is important to note that Babysits is not a childcare agency. Instead, we give you agency. Our goal is to connect parents and babysitters so that the supply and demand for childcare can be matched most efficiently. Babysits does not screen platform members. This means that community members are responsible for screening, interviewing, and making their choice.
