We never stop recruiting for enthusiastic individuals and we are so eager to meet the best after-school babysitters to join our team! If you’re experienced in childcare, tutoring, camp counseling, teaching, or other related fields, we can help you find a great after-school position. We’ve been around for almost 6 years now and we work with hundreds of families in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.

We’re a personal, supportive network that stays connected to our sitters. We have helped many of our sitters find multiple jobs over many years! We arrange meet-ups, CPR classes, help with sublets/roommate searches, support each other in creative pursuits, hold workshops, and more. Ask your friends if they’ve heard of us, or check out the sweet things families and babysitters say about us!

Our entire network is fully screened, personally interviewed, and background/reference checked. We look for at least two childcare or childcare-related references and a clean background check. We ask that all our babysitters and nannies that apply are fully comfortable with homework help, reading assistance, educational games, going to and from activities, snack preparation, basic meal preparation, general tidying after the kids, kids’ laundry, and loading/unloading the dishwasher. Babysitters and nannies in our network are paid directly by families and we NEVER EVER take a cut of your pay. You set your own rate between $15-$25/hour! Many of our After-School Babysitters make between $400-$500/week!
