Three Easy Options

Babysitting Connection is a monthly membership babysitter agency. We offer three levels of membership; Basic, Premium and Platinum. Each level offers you access to high quality, background and driving record checked, valid Driver Licenses, CPR Certified, personally interviewed, babysitters.

Basic allows you to book 3 sits a month (24+ hours in advance.)

Premium allows you to book 10 sits a month (24+ hours in advance.)

Platinum allows you to book UNLIMITED sits a month (24+ hours in advance.)

**This monthly fee DOES NOT include our minimum hourly rate which you will pay directly to our sitters**.

For sitting services, our hourly rates for our sitters are $16/hour for 1 child, $17/hour for 2 children, $18/hour for 3 children, and $19/hour for 4 or 5 children. We have group rates of $20/hour for sits that require more than 1 sitter with 6+ children. Members may choose to pay their sitter more or tip. There is a 3 hour sit minimum.

If you request a sit with less than 24 hours notice we cannot guarantee coverage and there is a fee. If you request a short notice sit during business hours, you will be charged the fee only if we find you a sitter. However, if you request a short notice sit outside of business hours, you will be charged half the fee upon request and the other half if we can fill the sit. Text us once you request a short notice sit so we can notify the sitter as soon as possible.

Your membership is month to month with no contract. You can cancel anytime by simply logging in to your account and clicking "Manage my account." Your credit card on file will automatically be charged each month on your billing date.
