Information about Sitterhood


Sitterhood wants to recreate the village we once had by connecting parents in neighbourhoods for occasional childcare. Parents offering occasional childcare have the benefit of meeting new parents, having playdates for their kids and earning an extra income. Grandparents are also welcome to join as Sitters!  

If you are a parent or grandparent who can help other parents in your neighbourhood with occasional childcare, you can create a profile by signing up here.

We hope Sitterhood will make occasional childcare more accessible for parents. If you have any feedback or questions, you can email us at

My family was new to a region and we kept finding that it was challenging to plug into a group of parents that could provide casual childcare support for our kids. As soon as we linked in with Sitterhood all our logistical problems with the kids and their appointments were solved. It was so refreshing to have an informal network of parents supporting each other in an honest way that was collectively driven by parents themselves. With Sitterhood we could feel at home and connected in our new community. - Rebecca

Sitterhood was a life saver for me. I don't have family in town so scheduling appointments around my two kids was a nightmare. Sitterhood allows me to connect with local moms or sitters quickly and efficiently. Speaking of that...I need to schedule date night! Off I go to - Rachale

Highly recommend Sitterhood. It was my first time leaving my child with someone other then family so I was a little nervous at first (ok alot nervous!). But Sitterhood was amazing from start to finish and put my fears to rest. Helped me connect to not only amazing sitters right in my community but ones that I could trust and feel comfortable leaving my son with. When I had a sequence of very important appointments to go to, Sitterhood was there for me and my son and took out all of the stress of finding a reliable, caring sitter right in my own neighbourhood! - Heather

Sitterhood is lifesaver! I work non-traditional hours so it is very difficult to find childcare. It’s really nice to have this network that supports moms (working and stay-at-home) with such a wonderful service. My two little ones had such an amazing time meeting and playing with new friends. I can’t wait to see this company grow, and I look forward to using Sitterhood again. Highly recommend it!Genevieve N.

I am always impressed with Sitterhood and have had nothing but positive experiences. I feel confident leaving my daughter with the Sitterhood care providers, as she is always asking to return. The online system for bookings and payment is user-friendly and makes the overall experience smooth. Thanks, Sitterhood! - Eleni
