Welcome to the SmartSitting Community of Privately Screened Childcare Professionals. Parents need a support system just as much as kids do. At SmartSitting, we uphold the highest standards of integrity, safety, and scrutiny in selecting the very best nannies and babysitters to care for your children. We follow a rigorous screening process to vet the qualifications and background of everyone we invite to join our selective community. We review over one hundred applications per week and interview a select number of applicants in person at our Union Square offices. Upon a successful interview, we speak with a minimum of two childcare-related references, conduct background checks, and finish with an evaluation from a SmartSitting Director to ensure that they are best matched with SmartSitting families. We believe that nanny and babysitter hires should be treated with the same level of professionalism as corporate hires.
