It’s the first day of summer! Make sure you line up childcare and get some summer vacation relaxation in for yourself too with the help of UrbanSitter. With their easy-to-use app and website, finding and booking reliable, trustworthy and available childcare—even at a moment’s notice—is now a cinch. Read on to discover how UrbanSitter will make your summer pure bliss and earn $50 from UrbanSitter.

How It’s Different
When searching for a great sitter, who do you ask for recommendations? Your friends and neighbors, of course. UrbanSitter gets this, which is why they’ve reinvented the process of finding a sitter who meets your family’s needs. They’ve plugged into your local community, which means you can search babysitters recommended by parents at your school, your neighborhood mom’s group or hired by your Facebook friends. Think of this approach like word-of-mouth but so much better and easier to navigate.

Finding, booking and paying someone your kids love (and recommended by local parents) is done with just a few taps. All sitters have profiles with easy-to-read reviews and profile badges that detail their personal skills, repeat families, responsiveness and knowledge (think CPR training).

They’re More Than Just a Service
UrbanSitter makes finding, booking and paying sitters easy, but did you know they’re also an amazing resource? Their website is chock full of great articles whether you’re a first-time user or seasoned pro. From childcare planning (topics include: Choosing between a nanny, daycare or au pair, preparing for your first babysitter, and a parent’s guide to taxes) to working with babysitters (topics include: Preparing your nanny for an emergency to how to evaluate or monitor your babysitter), UrbanSitter knows what information is important to parents. And, they’ve provided it all in one place.
