We hope to resume our date night and occasional babysitting service in the near future. Please fill out this form only if you are already registered with our childcare agency and if you are seeking 20+ hours of care for at least one week.

About the Job

There is a 3-hour minimum for all bookings. You must compensate your babysitter for all hours booked, even if less time is used. We encourage you to book a shorter timeframe and request 1-2 hours of additional flexibility in the "additional information" section if needed.

Please review our sick care policy if requesting care for a mildly ill child.
