Meet your new personal sitting assistant

A new way to find, connect, schedule and transact with sitters – all for free.

Much more than background checks

Confidently build your SitterCircle and quickly have a group of trusted sitters at your fingertips


Discover sitters in your area and easily initiate an interview through the app. You can schedule to meet the ZipSitter in person, or set up a voice or video call to get to know them better. Why would you trust a 3rd party to interview your sitters?

ZipSit Certified

To add an extra layer of safety, a customized check is performed on each sitter that signs up to use ZipSit. The check is designed to give parents the peace of mind that they are getting trusted sitters – make sure to look for the ZipSit Certified badge when searching for ZipSitters.

Friend Referrals

The easiest way to find trusted sitters is to get referrals from friends! That is why we made it easy to connect with friends in the ZipSit app, allowing you to quickly get referrals of trusted sitters. This is an easy way to quickly build your SitterCircle with great, trusted sitters.

01. Build Your SitterCircle

Your personal network of sitters is called your “SitterCircle.” You control who’s in it, so when you need to schedule a babysitter, you can have peace of mind knowing your children are in the trustworthy hands you selected. Add your existing sitters, and connect with new sitters to grow your circle with the insight and reassurance from other parents’ reviews and referrals.

02. Schedule Your ZipSit

The days of scrambling to find a babysitter are over. Easily schedule a ZipSit with a few clicks. You can submit your ZipSit to your favorite ZipSitter, or send it to your entire trusted SitterCircle. You are automatically notified when your ZipSit is accepted – add it to your calendar and you are done. It’s that easy!

03. Enjoy Your Time Away

All parents know the feeling—sitting at dinner, worrying if everything is going okay with your kids. Did Jenny take her bedtime medicine? Did Frankie finish his homework? ZipSit allows you to alleviate those concerns in one tap. Both you and your babysitter can connect quickly and effortlessly when you need to get in touch.

04. Effortless Transactions

Compensating a sitter can be stressful. How much should we pay? Do I round up and tip? I forgot to get cash, what now? ZipSit provides a seamless, accurate, and incredibly easy alternative. The app automatically calculates the time and pays the babysitter via your pre-selected payment method. No cash. No scrambling. No uncomfortable situations.

Stay Informed.
