Finding a childcare provider that you can trust–whether it’s a babysitter, a nanny, and au pair, or a childcare program–is one of the biggest challenges that NYC parents go through. The search can be daunting, and once you’ve found an option you’re comfortable with, the issue of negotiating compensation with a sitter or nanny can be hard to know how to approach. Enter UrbanSitter.

UrbanSitter is an app that helps parents connect with trusted and vetted sitters in their communities.
