Busy parents often need reliable childcare without the high prices. This is where SitterSwitch comes to the rescue! By creating a free online profile, you are able to view other parents in your area who are looking to exchange babysitting services.
As a busy mother of 4, I was often looking for opportunities to go out with my husband. But the high cost of childcare led to us staying home again and again. After finding a friend who was in a similar situation, I proposed the idea of swapping babysitting. One weekend, I would watch her three children and the next weekend, she would watch mine!
The cost of SitterSwitch is less than an hour of childcare and you can cancel your monthly membership at anytime. Once you become a subscriber, you can email any of the parents in your local area who you are willing to trade childcare services with. It is up to the both of you to determine the days and times that are needed and to be exchanged but this can easily be arranged on your own terms. A review system allows you to rate each other so potential parents can read about their experiences. You can also sign up for alert emails as new members join SitterSwitch if you have not found a good match for you or your family. Additionally SitterSwitch is free while in Beta so Join Today!
