We have used Educated Babysitter since our daughter was an infant and the sitters have all been wonderful. Reliable, experienced with kids - even great at getting a rambunctious toddler down for bed! Working with Tracy is a breeze - she's always able to come through with a sitter, even at the last minute. We feel so lucky to have this service in our area!! - E. Johnson
We've been using The Educated Babysitter for several months now when our regular sitter takes a vacation or sick day, and for date nights, couldn't be happier. Their sitters are wonderful - my two boys love them. The rates are reasonable, and Tracy is just a pleasure to deal with - extremely responsive. For me the mark of a great business is not only one that gets things right, but one that fixes things fast and well when there are mishaps. Recently there was a snow day and a sitter had to cancel last minute. I really needed to work. I reached out to Tracy and within minutes she was on it and within 2 hours a wonderful qualified sitter was at my house. - Jenny M.
Tracy was absolutely amazing! I had reached out to Tracy to help with our 13 month son for a wedding we had in Baltimore, Md. I had never met her before but her kind demeanor over the phone immediately put my mind at ease and I knew she would be a great fit for our family. Tracy was extremely prompt meeting us at the time we discussed and she was so flexible and warm we embraced her immediately - or should I say my son, Micah embraced her immediately. He loved being with her. Tracy was able to get our son down for naps, had fun giving him baths and was excellent at putting him to sleep at night. My husband and I were worried prior to the trip since Micah was going to be in a totally different environment but Tracy has the magic touch! I would recommend Tracy to ANYONE and EVERYONE! We could not have asked for a more kind caring reliable, warm, and trustworthy babysitter! We love Tracy!!! - Valerie F.
We've been using The Educated Babysitter for the past few years and couldn't imagine finding a babysitter without it. We've had a range of babysitters over the years and they've all been great with our 2 kids -- Tracy can even handle same day requests occasionally. The Educated Babysitter is highly recommended to alleviate stress of finding a sitter for date nights or just getting some time away from kids! - Adam H.
Mo babysat for my infant when I was in the DC area at a conference. I could not have had a more positive experience. I wish I could have brought her back to my hometown to be a regular babysitter! So communicative, kind, and flexible. Just awesome to work with and a great support for me as a working parent. - Beverly L.
Natalia babysat our 2 year old Sunday for a whole day while we got ready for our parents 40th Anniversary Party. She was great! She entertained our toddler, fed him lunch, watched over during his nap time and then got him ready four our party! She even helped clean up after the party so it was much quicker for us to leave the hall. - Samina I.
We are in from out of town and our prearranged family sitter cancelled last minute. I contacted them through the request a quote function on this app and they're able to help us out for a sitter in our hotel for the same night. Everyone I spoke to was helpful and super quick about responding to messages. I could handle all of it via text or email, I didn't have make any phone calls which is a HUGE bonus for me. Nicole was great with our daughter. We will definitely use this service the next time we are in town. - Laura G.
