Sittercity helps you by providing babysitters, nannies, pet caregivers, caregivers who can assist with special needs.
Finding a sitter can be like finding the right doctor, mechanic, or even plumber. Often you don’t have the luxury of time to do the up-front research required to find the ideal sitter. Vague word of mouth recommendations from friends of friends, and un-vetted search lists from the internet rarely lead to the perfect find. All of this can end up trapping parents at home, or leading to a stressful time away worrying about the little ones. But it doesn’t have to.
As an employee of News Corp, you have free access to www.sittercity.com through our Bright Horizon’s “Care Advantage” program. Sittercity is a membership based child care website linking parents with vetted and reference-checked sitters in your area. This site costs the average person $420 per year ($35 monthly fee after the first month). However, as an employee enrolling through our special portal, that fee is waived and Sittercity is free of charge.
How it works:
- Post a Job – indicate your needs (number of children and the timing), and qualified, local sitters will contact you.
- Review Profiles – get to know your candidates, read their reviews from other families who have worked with them, and run background checks.
- Your Match – check their references, meet face-to-face, and make your pick!
And what is more – Sittercity can be used for more than just child sitting. You can use this resource to find a full time Nanny, caregivers who specialize in special needs care, pet sitters, care companions for seniors and even housekeeping services.
Even if you don’t have a need at this moment, sign up for the site and bookmark it. That way, when the need arises, you don’t have to scramble around trying to find and set up the resource. https://www.sittercity.com/Newscorp
