We find you jobs, not leads
Skills test
Sitters undergo a skills test where they spill the beans on everything from diaper changes to wrangling bedtime routines.
Reference check
We request two references and interview every sitter to dive deeper into the their background.
Universal background checks
We scan all the important state and federal registries and records. Parents must also pass a background check before their first care session!

I appreciate how detailed they were in the Sitter Manual.  They gave me details about both children and they wrote down time frames and their expectations and activities for the time frames.

I’m very happy with everything and will be booking again soon. My daughter adored her sitter from the first second! (And she was sound asleep when I got home.) It was perfect.

Very well behaved and a lot of fun! I had a blast with them and would absolutely sit for this fantastic family again. Mom and Dad were super chill and the kids were easy to manage and make smile! Thank you!

The kids were so so jazzed to see Eleanor again! We heard about a Taylor Swift dance party, much dinner eaten and endless read aloud books. And I’m sure that was just half of it :)

Otter has been a great way for me to make money on the side while still being incredibly manageable with my busy schedule.

Love how detailed their Sitter Manual was. It gave me clear expectations and a schedule for the evening. I had a blast and hope to sit for them again.
