For Families

Temporary Sitter Request

If it’s last minute NYC child care you need, we’re here to help.
Please fill out this form only if you are already registered with our agency. We will first check in with your previous babysitters, and if none are available, we'll confirm our top SmartSitter or cancel your request if you've requested that we do so. If you’d like to speak with your confirmed SmartSitter prior to the booking, we’ll be happy to arrange a phone call. We can also set up a paid trial in advance of any longer temporary requests.

Requests with more than 24 hours’ notice will be handled during our business hours (Monday through Friday, 9:30 AM - 5:30 PM). For weekend and Monday morning requests, please submit your online booking form by 5 PM on Friday in order to ensure placement. We operate on-call on the weekends, and we’ll always do our best to make sure your needs are covered.

Your Information
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 use the Additional Information field if you have any changes or special requests for your booking. For instance, will extra or fewer children be present? Are there any pick-up and/or drop-off times and addresses to note? Is your child home sick (if so, what symptoms are present)?

All done. Submit your request!

Reminder: Temporary Booking Fees will be charged for all requests submitted and are non-refundable. If a request is cancelled 24 hours or less from the start-date, the babysitter’s 3-hour minimum will be charged in addition.

If you are not yet registered, kindly first fill out our Family Application and a SmartSitting Director will get in touch to learn more about your family and your upcoming needs. Unfortunately we are unable to assist with last minute requests from new clients that take place outside of our regular business hours.
