“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Sitter Search Made Simple

Take the guesswork out of the sitter search with SeekingSitters, a brand new Seattle on-demand babysittering referral service. SeekingSitters gives parents a break when it comes to choosing a childcare professional: from the in-depth screening process through post-visit parent feedback, sitters are vetted and approved via the comprehensive SeekingSitters process, which involves thorough background checks, interviews by a local owner, reference reviews, and all sitters have extensive childcare experience .

Local owner Lisa Rizza--herself a mother of two --and her team offer service throughout the Seattle and greater King County area. Finding a favorite sitter is a snap with SeekingSitters' online booking system. Billing is easy, too: the company's efficient billing process eliminates the need for cash on-hand at the end of the sitter's visit. One-time, part-time and even full-time sitter options cover all your kid-care bases. Plus, if your regular childcare pro is out of town, you can browse sitter profiles and photos online to get a sense of who's a good fit for your family. And no worries if your needs are now --Lisa and her Seattle sitters are on-call for both planned and not-so-planned babysitting events.
