How often do you find yourself scrambling to find a babysitter, Mom? You deserve to have a night off here and there, but that doesn't make it any easier to find a trustworthy source of childcare. Do yourself a big favor – set up an account with UrbanSitter today to find a great sitter when you need one!
Here’s how it works: Simply sign up for UrbanSitter (it's free!), then view sitters that you know through friends or affiliations— including groups such as MOPS, Gymboree, Music Together, and Boulder Rock'n Moms.
You can check out each sitter’s profile, including on-time ratings, reviews from parents, and a calendar to see when they're available. Pick your date and time, then book the sitter for a job or interview instantly at the click of a button! For harder to fill positions like regular part-time help or last minute jobs, use the "Post a Job" feature and UrbanSitter will send an organized list of interested sitters.
Bonus: Many of the sitters are students at top local universities such as DU, CU-Boulder, Metro State, and Front Range Community College, and their average rates are $8-$12 an hour!

UrbanSitter is a community match service for parents and babysitters who connect online through Facebook and their existing networks. The site enables parents to search, book and review trusted sitters within minutes. Here’s how it works: Parents sign up for UrbanSitter using Facebook Connect and can view sitters known through friends or affiliations—including schools, sports teams and parents groups—and can view each sitter’s availability in order to select a sitter for a specific date and time, or plan an outing when they know their favorite sitter is available. Jobs or interviews can be booked in minutes and parents can contribute written reviews, ratings and Facebook “Likes” to sitter profiles. Headquartered in San Francisco, UrbanSitter was founded by a small group of parents who wanted to use technology to power a faster, more personal babysitting service.
