A hand selected network of nannies and childcare professionals for backup child care & babysitting in your home, hotel, for your event, or on vacation.

EXCLUSIVE

LA Sitter limits the number of sitters and members on our network.

We really get to know each and every one of our child care providers and see to it that we have only the best of the best.

Our members receive priority support so that we can personally guide them toward the right match for their family and their unique situation. Just give us a call during business hours for assistance, or contact sitters directly through the website 24/7.

Our sitters currently service Los Angeles County, but may consider locations outside of our service area at their discretion.

TRUSTWORTHY

LA Sitter was founded wanting the best occasional care for our own family.

We hold a limited number of intake sessions for new sitters where we meet in person to assess their character and temperament.

We thoroughly screen, background check and provide ongoing training opportunities to each childcare provider.

Not every sitter's application is accepted, we follow strict guidelines and closely monitor parent's feedback to ensure quality and maintain our 5 star rating.

 

EXCEPTIONAL

Each sitter has demonstrated years of experience working with children, is over 21 years of age and is legal to work in the USA.

They are intelligent, warm and engaging, have glowing references, are thoroughly screened, and are First Aid and CPR trained as standard.

Many sitters have college degrees in Early Childhood Development, Psychology and Social Work, and possess other exceptional skills such as NCS (newborn care specialists), lifeguards and more!

Testimonials

 

"We've been trusting LA Sitter with our daughter since she was 5 months old (she's 2 now!) They have always been trustworthy and professional--and, most importantly, our daughter loves them. It's so hard to find someone who you can trust with your child and you know you've made the right choice when your little one is actually EXCITED to have the sitter come over (which is now the case for our family every Friday night). Jessica and her team are simply the best. We feel 100% safe in their hands, have enthusiastically recommended them to others, and now wouldn't even think of using another company." Eric C. Santa Monica

 

"I want to give a shout out to LA Sitter's babysitting service for being superb! I had an emergency situation and needed a sitter ASAP.  All of their sitters are highly experienced with CPR certification.  The owner, Jessica came to watch my toddler twin boys and they immediately fell in love with her. Typically, one of my son's has horrible separation anxiety but he was so taken by Jessica that he had no problem with me leaving. I hired her services for three hours and came home to a tidy house with dishes washed and both boys napping. A++ This will be my go-to sitter service for the future.  I feel confident and at ease that my children will have the best care possible.  Thank you LA Sitter!" Rachael R. Atwater Village

 

"Absolutely the BEST! I have been a child care provider for over 10 years, and generally nanny for multiples (twins/triplets). I have worked with several agencies including LA Sitter.  Jessica (owner of LA Sitter) selects the most qualified individuals who's passion is childcare.  It is also mandatory/required by LA Sitter to be Trust Line certified. Jessica thoroughly verifies references and has met personally with myself and all the nannies to thoroughly screen them. Jessica is a fabulous communicator and is very quick to respond when I contact her. LA Sitter is on top of things and finds the best fit for each family!" Laura H. Child care provider

 

"BEST SITTERS EVER. I will never use another agency or referral from a friend. Ever... Jess knows each sitter well and because of that, she has been able to match the right sitter with the right family (well, I can only speak to my experience and clearly, it's been a great one). Two very good friends of mine adore the sitters they use but I've never met either... They're all amazing. They're experienced. All of my sitters have been CPR trained as I think is part of LA Sitter's criteria for even considering someone and also, fingerprinted, too... Jessica, and her team of professional, caring, smart and totally-in-tune-with-my-child sitters changed our minds completely about every babysitter we'd used before. " Leigh L. Sherman Oaks

 

"Jessica from LA sitter was fabulous! We were visiting from London and she explained the extensive vetting and steps LA sitter go through to get trusted care givers." Zaina N. London, England UK
