Life is busy enough without having to interview a bunch of babysitters just to get out of your apartment for an adult dinner or date night. Skip the resume searching, interviewing, negotiation and stress, and book one of our High Line Sitters to care for your children while you get a much deserved night (or day) out.
At High Line Sitters, we have a detailed interview process to ensure that only top-of-the-line babysitters work with us. Unlike some of the online-only agencies out there, we meet every sitter face to face, and make sure they are trustworthy, experienced and caring. We spend time checking references, and make sure that every sitter passes a full background check. We do the hard preparation work, not you.
We make it easy to book a babysitter for your children of any age - newborn through teens. Just call, email, or enter your request online and we will match you with a trusted High Line Sitter. We promise to confirm all jobs within 24 hours -- though in most cases much sooner.
Our costs are easy to understand and affordable for New York families.
You pay your sitter in cash or check at the end of the job
- $20 per hour for the first child
- $2 per hour for each additional child
- For jobs finishing after 10pm, taxi fare home
- Three hour minimum
When booking the sitter, we have two simple options
- A small $12 booking fee for each appointment - OR -
- A simple $35 monthly membership fee for unlimited bookings
We accept all major credit and debit cards via PayPal. All booking fees are refundable if cancelled within 24 hours of the start of the job.
