Sitter of the Month: Kaitlynn S.

At Hello Sitter we are proud to have NYC’s best babysitters. Not only are they all fully screened and vetted for safety and experience, they’re also all personally interviewed by us to insure that they are “kid people,” up for fun and ready for whatever your kids want to do (within house rules of course). We know it can be nerve-wracking to have a new sitter come over and it’s so nice to know a little bit about the person who’ll be taking care of your kids.  So we’re launching a new Sitter of the Month profile to get to know our sitters a little bit better.

This month we’re excited to introduce you to one of most popular and in-demand sitters, Kaitlynn S.
