Kid1Sitta.ca is an easy to use childcare marketplace. We give parents a quick, easy and convenient way to find childcare that meets their needs and budget, and we give childcare providers an easy place to find new clients.

While the process and experience is a little different for parents and care providers, everyone benefits from Sitta.ca in a few universal ways:

 

  • Easy. Sitta.ca is a one stop shop to find or be found.
  • Convenient. You can use Sitta.ca from any device, and we send you push notifications about your jobs and clients.
  • Secure. The Sitta.ca platform allows you to vet clients and care givers, with built in feedback and reviews for clients and care providers.

Finding quality, affordable and available child care in Canada can be tough. Whether you're looking for full time care or an occasional babysitter, Sitta.ca makes it a little easier.

 

Post Your Job

Sitta.ca works a little differently to what you might be used to.

Instead of searching through classified sites, trawling social media groups and making endless phone calls, we let you post your requirements here.

You choose the type of care you need, the area you need it in, and the budget you have (whether it's for one date night or daily care.)

 

Get Offers

Once your job is posted, it will be visible to all of the care providers that offer the services you need, in the area you need them in. It will also be sent directly to their email address, so that as many people as possible see what you need.

Care providers can then make offers on your job, and those offers are sealed, so they stay just between you and the care provider.

You can view their profile, assess their credentials, and, if they have feedback and reviews, read what their other clients have to say about them.

 

Hire the Best Fit

Once you've decided who you feel is the best fit for your family, you can close the job by hiring the person or company you choose.

You'll still pay them as you would normally, but by hiring them on Sitta.ca, you can add them to your favourites list, and add feedback and reviews when the job is done, and, in the unlikely event that something does go wrong, you can let us know, so we can investigate and take appropriate action.

 

It's FREE!

Sitta.ca is completely free for parents. There's no fee to join, post jobs, review care providers or any of the other services we provide.

 

 

 

Tired of advertising on twelve different sites, and watching social media groups like a hawk? Want a quick and easy way to find new child care customers? We got you covered.

 

Create a Profile

When you register as a care provider on Sitta.ca, you can create a profile that includes your picture, credentials, driver's licenses, references from your existing customers and more. The more detailed your profile, the easier it is for you to be found in a search. Add your location and the areas and specialties you offer services in, and let work come to YOU!

 

Get New Jobs by Email

Once you've signed up for Sitta.ca, you will get new job updates by email, but you can also browse the site for jobs in your area, field of specialty and more. It's the easiest way to find more child care customers!

 

Make Offers

Instead of waiting for customers to find you, care providers on Sitta.ca are proactive, making offers on the jobs they would like to pursue. You can also get invites, and your offers are always sealed, so they're private, between you and the customer.

 

Feedback and Reviews

Word of mouth is one of the best tools to market your child care business, and Sitta.ca makes it easy! Offer great service to your clients and get great feedback and reviews. Leave your own feedback and reviews, and be added to favourite lists.

 

 

 

What Kind of Jobs Can I Post?

If it's child care related, you can post it here!

We have categories for babysitting, part time child care, full time care, respite care, special needs and more. We've even got a category for pet care!

Where Does Sitta.ca Work?

Currently, we're focusing on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island areas of British Columbia, but we'll be coming to a city or town near you soon! Be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates about our expansion!

How Do I Pay My Care Provider?

Sitta.ca is a marketplace that helps you find care providers, but we don't process payments. You will still pay your care provider the same way you ordinarily would, including, if applicable, any subsidies you may receive. 

Why Should I Hire Here?

Sitta.ca makes it easy to find the right child care, but it also makes it easier to share your experience, as a parent or a child care provider. Feedback and reviews help built child care provider's businesses, and help other parents to make informed decisions.

Can Teenagers Work Through Sitta.ca?

As per our terms of service, Sitta.ca is intended primarily for users who are the age of majority in their province of residence. However, we recognise that many teens offer outstanding child care services. So, as long as you have parental consent to be a member, and an adult agrees to pay the monthly membership fee, we're happy to have teens on this site.
