Welcome to Sitter Select Philadelphia!

best-of-philly-2014-logo-400x400We provide easy and efficient childcare services for residents in the Center City, West Philadelphia, South Philadelphia, East Philadelphia and North Philadelphia area.  We are always expanding.  Please send us an email if you need better clarification regarding our areas of service.  Whether you need a last-minute sitter for an evening out, a baby nurse for the first three months, or a standing weekly sitter, we offer you access to a highly skilled and referenced network of nannies and childcare specialists. 


At the heart of Sitter Select is the unique relationship between the family and childcare specialist. Every child, every family, and every situation is different. When you contact us, we match families with childcare specialists based on the specific needs of each family. Our goal is to facilitate a relationship between sitter and family that will foster a safe, reliable, and nurturing environment for your children.

Our most popular requests include last-minute sitter needs for an evening out, postpartum doula services, after-school transportation and childcare.  In addition, we receive last minute sitter requests for accompaniment on long weekend getaways, family trips or vacations. We also accommodate requests for nannies with more specialized training such as for nannies who work exclusively with newborns.

We take childcare seriously. This is why we conduct background checks, reference checks, and interviews with all of our sitters before we hire them to ensure that each family receives a trustworthy, experienced, and qualified childcare specialist.
