What Will It Cost?

What You Pay Your Childcarer 

When you book childcare with Sitters, you pay the childcarer direct for their time at the end of the booking. We ask parents to pay for a minimum of 3 hours (4 hours on 'busy dates'), regardless of how short the booking is. Your childcarer keeps 100% of what you pay them at the end of the booking.
