The only platform that connects parents with fully vetted sitters on demand

Nanno is the #1 app for finding and booking a fully vetted babysitter on-demand.

Unlike, UrbanSitter, SitterCity, Bambino, and other babysitting apps, all sitters on Nanno must pass a comprehensive background check – including a behavioral profile and a skills test. So you know that all sitters on Nanno are fully vetted, high-quality caregivers you can trust.


Simply tell us about the care you need, and we send your beacon to our network of thousands of background-checked babysitters, nannies and caregivers nationwide. The first qualified sitter who accepts the booking is automatically engaged and will call you to confirm the details. In the unlikely event you need to cancel, you can – for free.


Once your booking is concluded (and the details finalized), your babysitter is paid automatically. No more awkward late-night math or trips to the ATM.


“The kids had a great time. As soon as they woke up this morning, they asked when Kelly would be coming back to play again.” – Lisa, Denver, CO

“My kids always look forward to the fun they will have with their Nanno babysitter.” – Monica, Seattle, WA

“I love the fact that I can book a babysitter at a moment’s notice and always know they will be amazing.” – Ramona, Austin, TX


We actively recruit the best caregivers to join Nanno. Most sitters on Nanno are teachers, nurses, university students or professional nannies, who babysit on the side. Every sitter on Nanno is carefully vetted through our five-step process. In addition to a comprehensive criminal background check, all sitters must pass a skills test (testing safety rules and first aid / CPR) and a behavioral test (testing if they have personality traits that would make them untrustworthy).

Nanno’s vetting process is the best and most comprehensive you will find anywhere.


We know that the key to great care is great sitters who feel valued and appreciated. That’s why we take the time to understand the babysitting community, and give them the support they need, including:

:: Cancellation Protection – When a booking is cancelled at the last minute, sitters get paid a portion of the booking amount.
:: Payment Certainty – Sitters get paid for the amount of time booked (even if parents return early).
:: Insurance – All Nanno engagements are covered by our comprehensive insurance and bond.


Because Nanno is so convenient for sitters, we are able to attract top babysitting talent. Nanno lets you book amazing sitters, with skills including:

:: Special Needs Experience
:: Experience with Newborns and Multiples
:: Night Nurses
:: Post-Partum Doulas


Is it REALLY on-demand?
Yes! Book as little as one hour in advance (or as much as 30 days in advance).

Is there a minimum number of hours for a booking?
Nope – although sometimes it’s harder to find a great babysitter for super short gigs.

How is Nanno different from, UrbanSitter and SitterCity and other similar babysitting apps?
ALL sitters on Nanno are thoroughly vetted and background checked. All must be over 18 and legally reside in the United States. Best of all, because of the care we take in checking babysitters on our platform, we are able to provide true on-demand connections. We handle the whole process for you, saving you the pain and rejection of the usual sitter search.

How is Nanno different from Sitter and Bambino and other babysitting apps like those?
Again, neither of those apps do background checks – let alone the serious vetting we do. And neither connects you real-time with an available sitter when you need them.

How is Nanno different from Uber and Lyft?
It’s actually pretty similar – except for the fact that we do babysitting, not ride-hailing.

Consistency needed

This is a great app overall. It’s easy to use, and you get quick responses from qualified sitters. I only wish there was a feature were you could request the same sitter again. My daughter doesn’t trust easily so when we find a sitter that clicks we would like to be able to request to have the same sitter again. Or for them to have the opportunity to accept the job first before it is available for other people to take. Consistency is huge with children so I’m not sure why the app doesn’t have something like this already.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for your feedback! We took your feedback seriously, and our new app makes it SO much easier to make a "shortlist" of your favorite sitters (or single favorite sitter)! We'd love to hear your thoughts on the new app!

A life saver App

Finding high quality childcare that I can trust is really hard. I discovered this app and was amazed how easy and safe it was.
Where have you been all my life!
The main thing for me is safety and the fact they background check all the sitters is better awesome.
