Welcome to SitterNextDoor
Welcome to SitterNextDoor!
We are a team of high school students (Andrea, Jenny H, and Jenny S) and we created SitterNextDoor after winning Technovation Ottawa in 2016.
We are happy to help parents find a babysitter for their children, or to help babysitters find families to babysit for. Currently, SitterNextDoor is based in the Ottawa region but we plan to expand soon.
We are so happy that you are here whether you come as a parent that urgently needs to find a sitter to take care of your kids for an evening or a teen that wants to be a babysit to earn some cash.
If you are a parent or a potential babysitter, you can sign up right now to start booking jobs! When signing up, we will ask both the babysitter and the parent to submit their background check (highly recommended but not required), references, and to record a very short video answering an interview question. We will review your application ASAP and if you are approved, you are in! If you are a parent, you are able to post jobs in the Post a Job section and see the requests roll in. If you are a babysitter, you can immediately look through and respond to the job posts in your area.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us. We hope you find your SitterNextDoor with us!
