Where do you find sitters?
Most of our sitters are referred to us through other sitters in the program or from community members. Periodically we will also create postings on job boards at local colleges or on localwisejobs.com.
How do you vet your sitters?
All sitters provide references, are interviewed in person, and are Trustline Certified. All of our sitters commit to our Code of Ethics.
Can I book your sitters outside of the website?
No, we ask sitters and clients to not book outside of the system, for the integrity of the community and the relationships we are building together.
Where do the Booking Fees go?
The Registration and Booking Fees go to cover administrative costs including website maintenance, sitter hiring, and behind the scenes work to get you the best childcare.
I just need my kids picked up from school. Are you a transportation service?
We are not a transportation service. Swiss Cheese does not keep driving records of our sitters on file. However, some sitters are willing to do things like pick up children from school if the job meets the 3 hour minimum and they are reimbursed for mileage at 56 cents/mile.
I purchased a YELP deal. How do I redeem that?
When you fill out the registration form, please note that you have a YELP deal that you would like to redeem and include the code in your registraton.
Can I have the Sitter’s social security number for tax records?
If this is something you need to have for your records, please let the sitters know that is something you require before booking them. We suggest putting in the “Notes” section of each booking.
