How Our Nanny Agency is Handling Hiring During COVID-19 ›

Making Every Moment Count

Welcome to SmartSitting, a child care network inspired by the philosophy that the early years of life are the most developmentally important for intellectual, social, and emotional health.

Together, we’re an inspired collective of child care experts, former and current babysitters and nannies, educators, and parents. We've spent the past ten years navigating the very unique experience of raising children in New York City! It's our belief that not much “sitting” actually happens when you’re in the hands of a great babysitter or nanny, and that educational moments, engaging play, and thoughtful conversation at every age are an integral part of raising the next generation of amazing human beings.

Our mission is making every moment count and we do this by providing inspired child care to families.

We take the responsibility of caring for your children seriously, which is why we only accept 6% of all applicants into our meticulously curated network of childcare providers.

As a company, we adapt to your changing child care needs while consistently providing unparalleled support, stability, responsiveness, and reliability.

Our work doesn't end once you've found a great nanny or a go-to group of incredible babysitters. We work together with families to establish and maintain open lines of communication with their caregivers, so they can successfully navigate their developing care relationships.

Our Promise to Our Sitters

Our process for matching you with great families ensures that you have a safe avenue for finding great babysitting and nanny jobs in New York City.

As former babysitters, nannies, educators, and child specialists, we are here to help navigate the business side of child care. In addition to advocating for hourly rates and benefits that correlate with the important work that you do, we are always a resource for you.

We believe you can live the life you want to live and pursue your dreams and passions all while inspiring and teaching children to pursue their own. We are supportive of you throughout the evolution of your New York life and career and we'll be here to help you find a new position or fill-in work during periods of open availability.
