We are looking for energetic, fun, reliable sitters to join our roster-- especially those with daytime availability. We work with many students, artists, actors, freelancers, and dancers who need a flexible schedule that allows them to pursue their passion. If you have consistent childcare experience (with non relatives) and you enjoy being around kids of all ages, we want to hear from you! For the most part, our families live in the Loop and north side neighborhoods and a car is not necessary for most of our gigs. We value transparency and safety, so we ensure that both our families and sitters feel comfortable when they are meeting for the first time! We value diversity, and we are proud to work with sitters and families from all backgrounds.
The hourly rate is typically $15-$18/hr, you are paid directly from the parents, and the rate can increase depending on the number of children and the duties required. We also provide sitters for weddings and special events, where sitters can earn up to $20/hr.
**BENEFITS FOR YOU AS A SITTER**
- We vet the families and do all the work of finding professional, kind parents who treat sitters well.
- You have control over your schedule.
- No need to send endless applications and messages to parents.
- For one day gigs, you get paid the day you work.
-There is a 3 hr minimum for all gigs, so you know you'll make a minimum of $45 for any placement.
