“As busy parents, we know that life is a balancing act and you need childcare that’s reliable, trustworthy, and available‚ even at the last minute. That’s why we’ve completely reinvented the process of finding a babysitter, so with a tap you can hire the sitters most trusted by your local community of parent-friends and neighbors.
We’ve also eliminated the hassle that comes along with hiring a babysitter, from scheduling to payment, so all you have to do is say “yes” to date nights, parent-teacher conferences, time for yourself and time with friends. At UrbanSitter, we celebrate parents who take care of their kids and themselves. Our hats are off to you‚ the ones who pull off the world’s greatest balancing act.”
