I know a ton of us, myself included, were scrambling to find babysitters this past holiday season and there was definitely a shortage... so much so that I had friends inviting anyone who could to watch over their little ones because they desperately needed a sitter for work parties, holiday outings, etc.
This new creation just launched, where you can hop on their website, view the profiles of all sitters on staff, and then book sitters. They are able to offer up to 25 hours per week, over 2-3 days, through their part-time parenting service as well. A way to find a team of experienced, enthusiastic, and engaging sitters all in one place? Yes please!
- SMS offers LOCAL, SAFE, and RELIABLE child care... so important!
- Every single sitter is thoroughly interviewed by local owner Sarah Tortorella, has a clean background check and driving record, and are CPR certified
- To register, you pay a one time $50 fee, which enables you to have access to their online directory of sitters that you can book at your own convenience depending on schedule and availability
- SMS sitters leave a "sitter log" after every sit, which includes communicating with mom/dad about how the sit went he/she gets home, and also explains additional details about the sit that the parents sometimes forget to ask such as, were there any diaper changes? What did we eat? How much do I owe you? Oftentimes sitters put cute and funny quotes that kids said during the sit in the "notes" portion of the log. Just a little something to make mom/dad smile!
- Scheduling fees range from $10-$25 depending on amount of notice and sitter hourly rates range from $11-$14 depending on the number of kids
- Need multiple sitting dates/times? Book 4 at once and your fourth scheduling fee is waived!
- In addition, SMS offers pet sitting, tutoring, and over night care!
And best of all, I'm giving you local Nashville area friends a chance to win a free SMS registration [normally $50]... I'll be giving away coupons to two of you so be sure to enter using the Rafflecopter widget below! Good luck and I hope to see many happy date nights in your future ;)
