Use Helpr to book a screened and curated babysitter anytime, anywhere. Sometimes parents are in a pinch and it's our mission to be there for you in those moments. Safety comes first but exploration and play is a close second.
Our trusted babysitters and nannies are available for your family for same day coverage or booked in advance. We can have a sitter to your door in as little as 3 hours in select locations.
We are creating the gold standard of in-home childcare.
It works like this:
1. Tell us about your family.
2. Book the times and dates you need.
3. A trusted childcare provider will be matched to you. Review her profile and video. If it's a match, then great! Remember, everyone meets our high standard for care.
4. Sitter arrives to your home, hotel, or office to meet the family!
5. All payments are accepted by credit on the app. Tip is already included.
Helpr babysitters go through the following high-touch screening process:
+ In-person interview with Helpr's experienced staff
+ Clean criminal background and driving record
+ Positive childcare and professional phone based references
+ Social media and google search
+ Confidence, communication, and kindness is what we look for.
+ Our sitters are role models with bright futures
Who are we?
Our founders, Kasey Edwards and Rebecca Klauber Richter, have placed over 100,000 hours of babysitting on-demand. They became pals in college where they bootstrapped their education as nannies then became co-foster parents as a way to test if they could connect with every mother and father.

Ratings and Reviews
Worst App - Begging for Nannies
One of their childcare recruiters begged me to come in for an interview for an event she was having in PV. She begged me to reach out to my nanny friends because they were understaffed and didn’t have sitters. Desperate and deceitful to clients who book.
Incredibly Convenient App for Parents!
This app is amazing! We got last minute tickets to a Lakers Game yesterday morning. My family lives close by and can normally help watch my kids, but everyone had other plans.
I downloaded the app, signed up for an account and placed my sitter request, all within 5 minutes. Within 5 minutes I received an email that we had a sitter confirmed, along with the sitter's name, cell phone and info about her.
So cool! We instantly felt comforted knowing the girl was from the same town outside of Chicago as my husband.
The sister called me when she was on her way and was so sweet! She did an excellent job, and kept the house very clean, had no problems putting my daughter to bed, and is someone we will definitely use again.
Highly recommend this app! Each sitter is pre-screened and you don't have to do any correspondence back and forth. Love!
What a FANTASTIC idea, and a GREAT service!
We absolutely love Helpr! It is such a great idea for how fast pace life can be for families nowadays. We have had such great experiences each time we book with Helpr- we love our sitters and we are so embarrassed by how quickly we receive them. We have so much comfort knowing that each sitter is screened and has had plenty of child care experience. Helpr is the best new babysitting service out there! We highly recommend!
