I have a high degree of confidence in Helpr and the people they select. I often request a sitter that I've used before, but I’ve also been totally fine selecting new sitters if my favorites aren’t available. I’m not sure I would feel that same level of comfort with Care.com or Bright Horizons.

All of our Helprs have at least two years of childcare experience, and must pass a rigorous screening process.
Helpr sitters are compassionate, engaging, and professional babysitters. They include med students, former nannies, and early education teachers who have devoted their lives to caring for children. Helprs possess the versatility and experience to manage kids of all ages and personalities.
Through the Helpr app, parents are currently matched to the closest Helpr available to them. Should they find one Helpr that their kids absolutely love, they can continue to specifically request that sitter for back-up care needs.
Our rigorous screening process includes the following:
Background check with ID verification
Current CPR certification
In-person interviews with full-time Helpr staff
Continuous community vetting
Social media check
