Meet your Sitter
I personally work for you to find the best sitter match for your family. After the sitter is assigned you can meet her virtually and even chat online to ask questions or give details about your family.
Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!
Activities and Fun
Your sitter will arrive at your home with activities and games prepared for your children's preferences and ages. We have seen how exciting it is when the professional sitter arrives on your doorstep with their bag full of activities.
When you book a regular event, talk to me about preschool and school aged activities that can be purchased on a monthly basis.

We were so happy with Melanie today! This makes going away on my business trip next week a lot less stressful. Having met her and had the chance to go over some things and get the boys acquainted with her was great. She is so super! How do you keep finding these girls? They are all so fantastic.
Remember when we first started and my husband was afraid to have a sitter? Well, he has done a complete 180... When I asked him how he felt about Melanie today his response was, "Lori's sitters are all great. I never worry anymore."
Meghan was a great match for us, thank you. She was extremely professional and also instantly made the kids (and myself) comfortable. Megan's background is perfect for my young children, she brought some educational and creative projects for them to work on together and they loved it. When I got home all the projects were laid out on the kitchen table along with her evaluation card. I was really impressed with how prepared she was and how easy she made the new sitter transition for my family.
Everything went very well Lori. Thank you. Our sitter, Krista Z. was there early, she brought a bunch or her own toys and games and was very professional. The kids took a very quick liking to her. I would definitely use your services again.
(A sweet testimonial from one of our sitters, Lauren E.)
I started working for family members of Seeking Sitters when my husband and I got stationed in Saratoga Springs. While working through Seeking Sitters Capital District, I met so many amazing families. All of the children I watched were so great, and it really furthered my passion for working with kids. One of the best parts about working in the Capital District was I met another military wife named Courtney (another sitter). We instantly became best friends because we had so much in common! Courtney and I thought we hit the jackpot with this job because Lori Flynn, the owner, is a military spouse as well, and she understood what we were going through. I have never met a nicer person, and even though I live across the country, Lori still keeps in touch with me and offers me support and encouragement.
Caitlin has been sitting for our family on a routine basis for several weeks and we can't say enough about her. Our chlidren love her (as soon as she gets here they can't want for mom and dad to leave and they are always sad when it is time for her to go). We feel incredibly comfortable with her and feel fortunate to have such a kind and reliable person sitting for us each week.
Caitlin is very creative and introduces really great ideas and games to our children each week. They are stimulated and learning new things every time she is here to sit. She really is a lot more than a sitter....
We have a 6 year old son on the Autism spectrum and Caitlin was quick to understand his quirks and needs, which gives us a huge sense of relief and of comfort. We really can't say enough good things about her.
Thanks to you, Lori, for introducing Caitlin to our family.
We had Katie come on two different occasions. Our 16mo. old was already in bed, but our 6 year old son, who hates having sitters, loved her. He was actually excited when we told him that she was coming back. She kept him busy with activities and left a great report at the end of the night. We would highly recommend her!
Amy has been wonderful with our son Jack. Jack looks forward to visiting with Amy and the activity that they do together. It's so nice for my husband and I to be able to go out and not have to worry at all. We know that Jack is having a good time and is in capable hands.
Meghan is a great addition to Seeking Sitters! She is a very pleasant, loving, caring, gentle, fun and polite person. My son had a wonderful time with her- she played with him nonstop, read books to him and is very carfeful with him. From the time she came in our door, he had a big smile on his face!
She is very attentive to details and followed all our instructions.
We are so happy that Meghan is now a part of Seeking Sitters- she fits perfectly to the great service it provides.
Robyn was the first sitter assigned to us, and she is by far the best sitter we have ever had. We have previously used private ads on craigslist, referrals from friends, and another childcare service to try and find a sitter, and none of them were as well-liked or qualified as Robyn. She arrived promptly on time, immediately started talking with the kids, and brought books with her that amazed our daughter's - all about their favorite subjects! Our kids reported that they had a great time, the house was immaculate upon our return, and her feedback was thorough - no need for us to guess about when the kids went to bed or used the bathroom! Although our kids are normally pretty well behaved, they don't typically go to bed for anyone but us. Somehow, all children went to bed on time for Robyn with no problem, and were sleeping soundly when we got home. We will definitely be using her again and I would highly recommend this sitter!
Dear Lori, My husband and I would like to express our gratitude to you and your staff. We have been so happy from the very beginning with the loving and caring ways provided to our son by his babysitters. Our son has the biggest smile on his face every time his babysitter comes in the door. Each babysitter who has been assigned to our family has been wonderful. And we can’t thank you enough for being so accommodating with all our requests and needs like making sure we have a set of consistent sitters. Seeking sitters is like a second family to us in a way that we feel secure about the care of our child and we know that we can rely on you. We can’t forget the time you have worked hard in finding someone to care for our son on a very short notice. We are so appreciative of that and we hope you know how much that helped us since we are in a bind that time. You have really made things very easy for us. We also would like to commend the excellent job our son’s babysitters have done. They are very professional, courteous, loving, gentle and enthusiastic. They keep him engaged with activities- reading to him, playing with his toys and going for nice walks. It’s not very easy to find a group of people we can trust with our son and we are so thankful we found one in Seeking Sitters. We count this as one of the many blessings in our lives- to have the comfort in knowing that our son is in good hands. Sincerely, Sarah and Eric E.
Caitlin is always wonderful when she sits for my girls! The last job started with a tantrum and throw up by my 15 month old and Caitlin was very calm and took it all in stride. I felt very comfortable leaving my girls in her care. Also at the end of the same job, Caitlin was very understanding when I was running late, due to the weather, and she had to stay an extra 15 minutes beyond our scheduled end time. She is a wonderful sitter!
Max gives Shaakira two thumbs up! She is a real natural. Shaakira was interested in learning all about Max at our first visit, and even took notes about all of his little quirks, likes and dislikes etc. She has great insticts and I can tell that Max is well cared for and his needs are met when he is with her. They seem to have a blast, and her enthusiasm for working with kids is obvious. Both times that she has been here, I have come home to a neater playroom than the one I left (just a nice bonus). Most importantly, I can go to work with peace of mind, knowing that he is in great hands. That is priceless.
Kathryn has been babysitting on a regular basis for us for over a month and we couldn't be happier! Our 3 boys are so excited to see her every time she arrives. They love to play with Kathryn because she is full of energy and imagination. We also feel so confident leaving our (almost) one year old with Kathryn. She is confident and calm, and also really warm and caring exactly what we were looking for! To top it all off, Kathryn is also totally professional, neat and always punctual.
|Katie is such an asset to the Seeking Sitters team. We had her come on a Friday night before Christmas so that we could finish up our shopping. She was so great with our children. The report she left us was something that you would have expected from a pre-k teacher in a school setting. They did some arts and crafts, read stories, and had a wonderful time. Getting a written report of the night's events is important to us as parents, and not something that you would normally receive with the neighborhood teenager!! Thank you Katie!|
