Sitster is a great app for parents. Sitster makes it quick and easy to arrange babysitting amongst a group of your trusted friends, using a points system so it’s free and fair.
Create a Sitster group and invite your friends to join. You can be a member of as many groups as you like (e.g. NCT friends, school parents, neighbours) and you only need 3 or more friends for each group.
You can choose how many points the members of your groups start with (we recommend at least 5). 1 point = 1 hour (or part hour) of babysitting. You use points when friends sit for you and you earn points when you sit for your friends (and feel really good about yourself for helping them out).
Sitster makes it quick and easy to request and schedule sits. And if you need a sitter but have run out of points or you’ve got a busy few months ahead and you know you won’t be able to return the favour Sitster gives you the option to pay in cash instead of points.
If you’re already in a babysitting group you’ll love this – no more spreadsheets, faffing about calling and emailing friends when you need a sitter or losing track of people’s points.
And if you’re not already in a babysitting group this will change your life! Free babysitting, happy kids and happy friends.
Say goodbye to expensive babysitters and feeling awkward or guilty about asking friends to sit for you and say hello to more freedom and the warm glow of giving your friends a helping hand.
Parents, we’re in this together - let’s give each other a break. Welcome to the Sitsterhood!
