Sitters Studio to the rescue. Want a highly qualified, high energy, trustworthy sitter? Dont we all. We can highly recommend sitter studio for your regular and last minute needs. We met our first Sitters Studio sitter at a palydate. Lets call her Cindy. Cindy is a sitter our friend uses them regularly and I was wowed with her professionalism and energy and asked if she was a regular nanny (I wasnt poaching I swear! Just investigating). Cindy told me about her the company that employs her.
Sitters Studio is all about finding "artist babysitters"--they hire these talented folks to give them the freedom to pursue their dreams while sharing their artistic gifts with children. The sitters earn good cash and can change availability as gigs come along. They call it "ARTISITTING" and they do it by seeking out artistic young women (and men-but I didn't meet any) from NYC (dancers, actors, visual artist). The sitters need cash to pay the bills but also want to pursue their gifts. Sitters Studio doesn't want flakes though. They hunt down the most reliable artists ever. How? They put potential sitters through a grueling interview process (think 7 rounds of interviews) and then train the heck out of them.
The sitters are deployed on regular gigs and also last minute assignments. They always give the parents a detailed report of the babysitting session. Take a look at ours:
And they always bring a craft to keep the kids entertained. We were thrilled with our test run with Sitter Studios Our sitter, well call her Beth, showed up 5 minutes early, was super professional and fun! Beth and our girls made adorable elf hats and even got my littlest to eat some veggies (quite a feat). Well be adding them to our google contacts for sure.
