Snack and meal preparation
Coming home to a mess after hiring a sitter is a pet peeve for many parents. A sitter’s primary focus is spending quality time with your kids; but our sitters are expected to do light housework and clean up after meals and activities with the kids. We want parents to come home to happy kids who had a great time with their sitter, and a house that was tidier than how they left it.
Driving The Kids With your signed permission, our sitters will transport your kids to and from with squeaky clean driving records and their own vehicle. You can rest assured your children are in good hands. PlatinumSitters will cover up to 5 miles in travel per day; however should your travel exceed 5 miles per day, a daily surcharge of $10 will apply (15 mile daily limit). Concierge Recurring Clients and Special Events travel needs are negotiated case by case.
Pets? You bet
If you have pets, you will be matched with a pet-friendly, animal loving sitter who will be more than happy to take your dog out and feed the cat.

Going Above and Beyond
How we vet:
Local and national criminal background checks (including a sex offender search). PlatinumSitters will generate a report for each sitter which contains their SSN trace, address history and criminal and sex offender check. Only applicants who have reports that come back as "clean" will move on to the next steps of our vetting process.
Minimum 2-3 years childcare experience
PlatinumSitters will contact no less than two professional references (often more), and closely examine their past education and work experience, professionalism and relationship with the families they have worked for.
Driving Record Check
Every PlatinumSitter has a valid driver’s license, their own vehicle, and a squeaky clean driving record.
Face to Face Interview – Our sitters don’t just look good on paper. Our local managers personally meet and interview every sitter on our site to make sure they meet our quality standards. We are looking for Superstars! The kind of sitters we would hire for our own families.
At the completion of every booking, members are encouraged to provide a review of their sitter with our 5-star rating system. We constantly monitor our sitters and our service to our members. You can easily FAVORITE your top sitters, making the whole booking process that much faster!
Limited cell phone use
We only allow sitters to use their cell phones for emergencies or contact with parents and pre-approved contacts. We want your sitter to be fully tapped in to your child’s needs at all times.
Real people. Real awesome. In Real time. Most of our local managers are moms and childcare specialist who are used to multitasking! If you have questions or need personal assistance before, during or after a sit, a local manager is here to help and just a phone call away!
