Frequently Asked Questions

What is Consistent Care? +

Consistent Care is for families that prefer to have the same one or two sitters provide childcare for 20+ hours each week on a set schedule.

When you apply for our Consistent Care program, you will let us know what you are looking for in terms of weekly hours and your sitter's preferred experience and skills. You will then be sent information on 1-3 sitters who are interested in being matched with your family. From there, you will have the opportunity to speak with each sitter and decide which one(s) you would like to move forward with.

If you are interested in being matched with a sitter for 15-30 hours per week, please fill out this form. We require families to become members prior to us beginning our match process. Families are welcome to join with our smallest membership to start and you may upgrade, downgrade or cancel at at anytime.

Please note that you will still have access to our entire database of sitters and can book any of them for sits outside of your normal consistent care schedule. We are also able to easily provide replacement care should you consistent sitters be unable to sit on specific days.

You can always email Beth for more information or questions below.

Where do you find your sitters? +

We search the city for the top sitters for our members and love referrals from our current sitters and members. We also contact sitters through local babysitting message boards as well as recruit directly from local Universities.

How are your sitters certified? +

Our Owner Beth meets each babysitter candidate for an in person or virtual interview. Once they complete their interview and are offered an opportunity to join Babysitting Connection they go through an extensive background and driving record check.

Through EvidentID, we conduct a Social Security Number Trace, Sex Offender Registry Check, Global Watchlist Check, National Criminal Search, FCRA Compliance tools and a Motor Vehicle Record Check.

Sitters also must verify that they have a valid drivers license and reliable transportation, an up to date CPR Certification and are at least 18 years of age.

After completing each of these steps successfully, they are then added to our roster and are officially a Babysitting Connection Sitter!

What happens if my sitter doesn’t show? +

We are proud to say, that in over 4000 sits, this has happened only 1 time. But here is our policy just in case:

Both you and your sitter are sent a confirmation email or text 24 hours prior to your scheduled sit. We do all that we can to ensure that our sitters show up, on time, for your scheduled sit. In the event that a sitter is a no call, and no show, please contact Beth immediately and she will do all that she can to find a sitter as soon as possible and refund any sitting fees paid.

What happens if we don’t hit it off with our sitter? +

First, I apologize, we try to include enough information in our Sitter’s bios to help ensure a proper fit for your family. We have over 50 sitters on our roster and encourage you to try another sitter that may better fit with your families needs.

What happens if you want to book the same sitter again for the next sit? +

We love that you and your family hit it off with our sitter!! Next time you book, keep an eye out for them on the roster to book them again, you can also select their name from the drop down menu and see all of their availailbity. You may also speak to the sitter directly about their upcoming availability. But remember, members are not allowed to book Babysitting Connection Sitters outside of our agency and all sits must be booked through the scheduling software. To ensure the best selection of sitters we encourage you to book your sitter at least two weeks in advance.

What if there is an issue with our sitter? +

If there is an issue that you and the sitter are unable to resolve on your own, please contact Beth immediately to discuss further.
