Chime by Sittercity is revolutionizing in-home child care by instantly connecting parents with high-quality, thoroughly screened, experienced babysitters in their neighborhood. Sitters can be booked via Chime’s website or iPhone app instantly, and they can be scheduled as soon as the next day or for weeks in advance. Chime handpicks and thoroughly vets all its sitters—which includes an in-person meeting with our child care experts—so that the families don’t have to. All they have to do is browse video profiles, choose their best match and book. There are no subscriptions and no hidden fees; families simply pay their sitter directly via the app.
