Hello Sitters!

Interested in showcasing your profile to our members?

We're always on the lookout for the best child care providers in Los Angeles to advertise their babysitting services on our network.

However, we do not accept all applicants and maintain a smaller network of sitters to allow fair distribution of opportunities for existing sitters.

To have a profile on the Sitters of Los Angeles website, you must first meet our minimum requirements and be prepared to attend an in-person interview and receive ongoing feedback regarding performance.

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we may not be able to respond to every candidate.
