Sittercity is an online service that brings families, babysitters, and nannies together. Parents can find child care near their home that specializes in their children’s specific needs. The company began in 2001 when then college student, Genevieve Thiers, set up the service in Boston. Since then, the company boasts rapid success. Statistics show that every 2 minutes parents post a job on the site, 4,000 sitters join the site everyday, and every 3 seconds a family is connected to a babysitter or nanny. Parents can post their jobs on the site with their specific needs for their children, while babysitters and nannies search for job postings. Sittercity helps parents make the decision on the best caregiver for their children with background checks, reference checks, and reviews. Join the community and find a sitter in your neighborhood.
