Sitsit is an app that eliminates the hassle of booking, communicating with, and paying your sitters.

Do it all through an app so easy to use your kids could do it.

We are Not a matchmaker

Sitsit is not a directory of child-care providers or an agency. We facilitate referrals between friends.

Bring Back


Parenting young kids is hard work. It’s so easy to get lost in the daily grind of diapers and homework and laundry and lunch-making. What about making time for the activities that bring us joy?

Whether yours is getting out on your bike, checking out restaurants (that don’t serve chicken fingers), or learning to play the ukulele, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get out there and do it.

How it works:

  • 1. SIGN UP

    Create a profile (that can include anything you’d ever want/need to share with your sitter – from emergency contacts to critical allergy info to where the good snacks are).

  • 2. Invite

    Plug in your current roster of sitters and their contact info. They’ll get a text message inviting them to join the app – but it’ll still work for you if they choose not to accept. (This goes without saying, but their info will be kept under lock-and-key and never shared.)

  • 3. Book

    When you’re ready to get out of the house, open the app, choose your date, enter the time and click ‘send’. This will offer your job up to the sitters on your roster – or those you’ve specifically selected – which can be accepted on their end at the click of a button.

  • 4. Communicate

    You (and your sitter) will receive a reminder 24 hours before your scheduled ‘sit’ – eliminating any need to follow-up or confirm.

    On your way out the door (or when they arrive – that part is up to you), click ‘Start’ within the app, which will begin your gig timer.

  • 5. Finish & pay

    When you return home, click ‘Finish’. This will instantly calculate the amount due based on your sitter’s rates (no discussion required!) and a small service fee about the same amount as a cup of coffee.

  • 6. Feel Goood

    …about having done something for YOU, and in awe of how easy it was ;)
