A Super Sitter You and Your Kids Will LoveGuaranteed
We do the work & you get a Super Sitter!
Chicago Super Sitters provides experienced, trustworthy, and dependable babysitters for different needs and different schedules. We vet every one of our sitters to ensure our roster is the best of the best. All of our sitters have been interviewed, checked, and checked again! We really do all the work!
Even if just for a one-time request, each sitter is personally matched to your family’s needs by a real person at Chicago Super Sitters and not just a machine or algorithm.
Registering is easy, free, and gets you access to your Family portal. This is where you will find your profile, the request form, and other important info.
2. Complete the family profile.
This is where you share the first important information we need to match you to your perfect sitter. Gush about your family and tell us what makes you awesome. Include the stuff that’s not so awesome too — that info is just as important. You’ll finish this before we talk on the phone. Please know that you must complete this profile in order to get access to the Request form.
3. We chat!
This is one of the most important parts of our process and is required of all new CSSitters families. On a call we will go over your profile info, ask about some family specifics, and gather the information we need to match you with your perfect sitter. We also make sure all of your questions and concerns are addressed, and you are comfortable moving forward. You will schedule this call after we receive your completed family profile.
4. Pay the registration fee after your call, before your placement.
We will send you an invoice for the one time $50 registration fee. This is due upon receipt and must be paid prior to CSSitters fulfilling your first sitter request.
5. Request a sitter & relax – we’ve got you covered!
Now you can login anytime and request a sitter! Remember, the more in advance you make your requests, the more affordable it is. Don’t worry; if it’s last minute, we can handle that too. We’ll match you to a Super Sitter and send you all of the details when the placement is confirmed.

If you are cancelling at the very last minute or cancelling a 4+ hour gig, if it is within your budget to pay more than the minimum fees you are encouraged to do so. Reminder that 100% of this fee goes to the sitter for loss of workable hours and the agency takes no cut of this.
