Overall good

We had a last minute booking, so it was very helpful app for parent. I know to Babysitters it’s under paid, but for us parents we think it’s a bit expensive, and that’s why it hasn’t been a lot of traffic. When I first downloaded this Application, I immediately delete it due to the high price, there are a lot of babysitters willing to accept $20 or less / hour rate. Especially for kids who only require simple help and some night time watching after they sleeping. Maybe Sittr should reduce profit to get more customers. Or the babysitters should expect less than a full time job income, it’s more like a great opportunity whenever you have time to make additional income.

Families be warned. This app is the real deal

I am a Sittr. I have had many jobs. I have been paid for cancelled jobs and full pay for parents who have come home early. This service looks after BOTH parents and carers. My account was suspended when my first aid ran out. Was I upset ? No. It assured me this Company knows what they’re doing. Protecting families. I did have notice too so I renewed my certification and back on again for work. I know when I need my own Sittr, I will have 100% satisfaction in knowing the carer will have the utmost experience and qualifications to look after my children. Great job guys.

Best app I’ve used yet!

After doing lots of research and looking at different agency’s, websites, groups and so on, Sittr is the first app I have found that was free for me to use and also provided the security I was wanting ensuring the care provided to my kids was through safe and reliable people with all the references and check needed to be confident.

I love being able to see the reviews from past family’s, and also see that they had a social media check also!

I’ll be sure to let all my friends and family know about this site !
