I am pleased to announce that the Sitter team is now a part of UrbanSitter. UrbanSitter is a leader in providing trusted childcare services and we’re thrilled to join their team.

We joined UrbanSitter because they share our passion for making it ridiculously easy for parents to get the trusted care they need for their children. They value safety and transparency above all and have created a wonderful experience for their customers.

UrbanSitter allows you to easily book and pay babysitters, similar to the Sitter app, but also makes it much easier to find new, trusted sitters using your social networks like Facebook, your kids’ school, mom groups, and more.

Because of this, we’ll be shutting down the Sitter app on August 1, 2019. It’s been a wonderful journey. We’re proud of the product we built and so grateful to the community that helped make it possible.

We know saying goodbye to the Sitter app will be hard for many, but we think you’ll love UrbanSitter even more. Check your email for promo codes for discounted membership to UrbanSitter.

If you’re on the Sitter monthly plan, we’ve already credited your account for this last month of service, so you should not receive any further charges from us, but will be able to continue using the premium features. If you’ve subscribed to an annual plan, we’ll be issuing you a refund of the prorated amount for the amount remaining on your term after August 1.

Thank you to everyone who helped bring the Sitter app to life, whether by spreading the word, letting us know what you liked (and didn’t like), or simply using the product. You taught us so much, and we’re deeply grateful. We hope you’ll enjoy UrbanSitter as much as we do.
