kids with kiteFinding a babysitter in San Diego just became a whole lot easier with the official launch of UrbanSitter!

Families living (or vacationing) in San Diego now have a central hub to find, interview, and book babysitters online, in real time. Best of all, the site enables parents to discover these sitters through friends, school affiliations, and parenting groups they really trust.

So far, over 75 sitters have signed up in the greater San Diego area, including many San Diego State University graduates and students. In addition to education level, parents can search for sitters by years of experience, background checks, reviews, language, experience with special needs, pay rate, and more. Sitters list their schedules online, so parents can easily book a job with the click of a button–even for a last minute babysitter!

UrbanSitter is arriving in San Diego just in time for MLK weekend and Valentine’s Day date nights! Parents planning a family vacation to the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld or Legoland can also look forward to a night away from the kids thanks to the growing network of parents and trusted sitters.

UrbanSitter is available across the greater San Diego area including La Jolla, North County, South Bay and East County. To search sitters, log in and enter your city in the location box.
