Many parent employees are struggle to find reliable in-home childcare coverage. UrbanSitter partners with businesses to provide our trusted caregiver network as a benefit to employees aimed to reduce the stress of finding childcare.
Providing the right fit for your organization
- Companies can offer their employees paid access to the UrbanSitter platform.
- Companies can also opt to subsidize or cover childcare expenses for employees by adding company-provided stipends to employees’ accounts. These funds can be set for any amount, in any cadence (month/quarter/year), and can be adjusted as needs change. $500 per year is the average employer-paid stipend, however there is a broad range depending on the business’s location and average hourly babysitting rates by city.
Providing the right fit for each employee
- As health and safety is everyone’s top priority, every sitter is background checked, and reviewed by UrbanSitter.
- Parents can book care on a part-time or full-time basis. With more companies scheduling meetings during specific blocks of the day, employees are able to book care for three or four hours at a time, avoiding the need for full-time childcare.
- UrbanSitter also plugs into employees’ existing social and parental networks to find nearby caregivers their personal connections use and love.

- UrbanSitter’s marketplace is primed to fulfill increased child care demand with nationwide coverage and more than 250,000 background-checked sitters across the United States. Fulfillment is monitored daily to ensure adequate supply ratios are maintained.
