Meet some of our Sitters

Prior to appearing on Ula, every sitter goes through a multi-part vetting process, which includes: 1.) phone number and carrier validation to ensure users are registered with valid carriers in the United States and not using internet phone numbers or untraceable phones, 2.) ID upload and verification for 18 and over to ensure sitters are who they say they are, 3.) background check against the sex offender database and terrorist watchlist, and last but certainly not least, 4.) every sitter has to receive a recommendation from another member of the community in order to have the profile activated on the platform. In addition, all Elite Sitters are criminally background checked and have passed a strict qualification process. Following are some of our favorite sitters from around the country.

How does it work



Read detailed reviews and profiles. Look for a babysitter for specific occasions, last minute, part-time or full-time.



Search, interview and choose. Families only pay when they contact a babysitter. Nannies can contact parents for free.
