Frequently Asked Questions for Parents:

How do I find a Sitter?

There are several options you can utilize to find a Sitter.  You can communicate via our website and set up your own interviews, or you can also attend a Lullaby Sitters “Speed Sitting” Event.

Are you a nanny/babysitter placement agency?

No. We do not endorse or place Sitters with Families.  We provide tools and resources that allow Parents and Sitters to network and connect. Both parties must decide, on their own, if they would like to work together.

How much does a Lullaby Sitters Membership cost?

For Parents, the cost is $39.95 sign up fee the first month, $12.95 each month thereafter.  You can cancel your subscription at any time. However, if you choose to return to Lullaby Sitters after you’ve canceled your account, another sign up fee will apply.  You may also choose to reimburse a potential Sitter for a background check.

We will also have promos and discount codes for you to take advantage of!

What areas do you service?

We service Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

What makes Lullaby Sitters different?

First of all, we are local. Also, we provide Parents and Sitters several options and tools to make a working connection. Lullaby Sitters Members can browse profiles online, attend a Lullaby Sitters “Speed Sitting” Event, request/view online background checks, etc…

Our “Speed Sitting” Event is a great way to meet several Sitters at once, or you can also use this time to set up interviews with other members. Finding a Sitter you want to work with can take days and sometimes weeks! Let us remove the hassle of coordinating schedules and setting a neutral meeting place!

Can anyone attend a Lullaby Sitters Event?

Only members of Lullaby Sitters are allowed to attend these events.

Is there an age requirement for your Sitters?

Yes.  Sitters must be at least 18 years of age in order to have a membership profile.  Parents setting up a profile to represent their teen as an available babysitter is also prohibited.

How long is the process to find a Sitter?

That’s all up to you and your comfort level.  Hiring a Sitter can happen immediately by communicating via the website. Or hiring may happen down the road, after requesting a background check, attending a “Speed Sitting” Event or calling references.  The choice is yours

I've signed up, why can't I see any Sitters?

You will need to enter you address (only admin can see this) and a profile pic in order to view Sitter candidates. This ensures Sitters that are closest to you in proximity and are a better match based on your criteria will show up first.

Why has my account been suspended or deleted?

We are committed to making the connection between Parents and Sitters a less stressful process.  This includes managing our members and the content they post.  If you’re account has been reported by another user, we will look into the matter. Please remember, what may seem inappropriate can vary from person to person. Basically, we want to ensure that the info our members share is appropriate and in line with the standards of Lullaby Sitters. Harassment and abusive or inappropriate content will not be tolerated. Lullaby Sitters LLC has to right to refuse membership to those violating our terms.

As a college student, Lullaby Sitters was a great way for me to get involved and get a job in the Indianapolis area. I am a student with a full course load and just wanted an occasional way to make some spending money. This was the safe and easy way to do that in a new state! I’m babysitting for a family that is also new to the area, so it was great for both of us!
