Meet your Sitter
I personally work for you to find the best sitter match for your family. After the sitter is assigned you can meet her virtually and even chat online to ask questions or give details about your family.
Our goal is to make the entire process as seamless as possible for you and we handle the rest!
Activities and Fun
Your sitter will arrive at your home with activities and games prepared for your children's preferences and ages. We have seen how exciting it is when the professional sitter arrives on your doorstep with their bag full of activities.
When you book a regular event, talk to me about preschool and school aged activities that can be purchased on a monthly basis.
SeekingSitters service is designed to help your on-the-go family! Over 40% of weekly filled requests are made last minute or with under 7 day’s notice. Your monthly service fee will be activated at the time of the request.

I wanted to just send my thanks to you all. Sometimes I get busy and forget to appreciate folks that have done so much to help support us and our kids. The time your service provides me and my husband with is the only time we spend as a couple without children, and it has been instrumental in our relationship this past few years. Your sitters are always wonderful and I hope that my kids are good for them..
The kids beg for a sitter from SeekingSitters and are always so excited when I tell them that we have one coming. Always an awesome experience!
I can't tell you how many times SeekingSitters has saved my sanity! With my husband working out of town for months at a time, I am so thankful to have someone to call when I need a break! I recommend SeekingSitters to everyone I meet!
I have found the BEST sitter through SeekingSitters. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you so much for sending someone such last minute. My son had an amazing time!
Sara was fabulous with both my kids. I have a 1 year old and a 4 year old. She called ahead to see what the kids liked to do and brought crafts for my son. They even did a gingerbread house together. It says something about a sitter when my son woke in the morning and was sad Sara wasn't there. We loved her!
This service is so great! We are so pleased we found SeekingSitters!
I have really liked every sitter that we have had. I get nervous with a new sitter since our baby is so little. However, we have had all great girls. I am thankful for all that you guys do.
We signed up for SeekingSitters after our church used the service at an event. The sitters were so professional and did an amazing job with our infant that I wanted to use her in our home. We signed up last minute and SeekingSitters worked quickly to get us the perfect sitter!
Thank you so much for your service. Daisy has been one of our favorite sitters, but we have loved everyone you have sent!
Last weekend we had another sitter and when we got home I told my husband "Man, she was wonderful". His response was "we always say that!". It's true! SeekingSitters is the perfect solution to finding a sitter when you don't have a lot of babysitter options or are tired of your babysitting having other plans. We love this service!
We are so pleased with the service and look forward to each sitter we have. We couldn't be happier!
I was very nervous to leave my toddler with a sitter and Marissa was perfect! She made me feel comfortable and knew just what I needed, and my son loved her!
Saw the assignment for this weekend - thanks so much! You guys have changed my life for the better! We used SeekingSitters in San Diego last month while vacationing - it worked great.
When my son was diagnosed with autism, I was overwhelmed. I needed "mommy" time and wasn't sure I could find a sitter that would be qualified to meet his needs. SeekingSitters saved the day! Every sitter has been amazing and I am relieved to know we have someone to call anytime!
Our sitters have been so great! Thank you so much for always providing such great service!
This was my first time with seekingsitters.
I think seekingsitters is a wonderful service. From the time we left to the time we got back, Danielle was entertaining my girls. She came with a big bag of activities. My girls really enjoyed their time with Danielle. Very well organized from the food the kids ate, to the activities they did, to the times the youngest went to the potty.
Will definitely use seekingsitters and Danielle again
This is absolutely the best service around. Our sitters are amazing and we have never been happier!
The babysitters we have had in our home are so professional and really understand the needs of children. We never get calls from frustrated sitters and we appreciate that they are so flexible.
Yas was a supersitter. Somehow she managed to play, draw pictures, bathe children, put children down for naps while baking cookies!!!!! Wow!!! What a trooper too, the baby spit up all over her and she still had a smile on her face! I was very impressed...
I'm loving this whole online babysitting ordering kinda thing...its as easy as ordering a pizza! I appreciate you working with us!
Julie is fantastic! She always matches our family with the perfect sitter and I have never had a complaint about any sitter that comes into our home. The service is amazing!
I just wanted you to know how impressed I have been with seeking sitters. All of the young ladies have been exceptional! Being new to Lubbock, you have been an exceptional find.
We are so excited about this site! Our personal babysitter had to cancel at the last minute due to an illness, so we requested a sitter from SeekingSitters and within 5 minutes Miss Kaitlyn picked up the job and called to confirm. We had hesitations about how our daughter would react to a stranger, but she actually woke up from her nap and stood up and went right to Kaitlyn! Our daughter felt comfortable in an instant! Kaitlyn was great with her and kept up with us on how our daughter was doing throughout the night! Our next date night we will be requesting Kaitlyn, she was so polite and our daughter loved her. Thank you!
Every sitter we have had in our home has been perfect! We don't even bother requesting a specific sitter because we know that the team at SeekingSitters is the best around! Thank you!
Thank you so much for the fabulous sitter. It is so hard to find a reliable, safe sitter to pick our child up from school and your business really saved me from a bind. My daughter loves her sitter and calls Megan, "MY sitter!" - Cheryl
We have had such great success with all the sitters we have had in our home because of SeekingSitters. I recommend it to my friends all the time.
We traveled to Lubbock for a baby shower and used a sitter at the hotel with our children. This was the best experience. The sitter was great and we look forward to returning!
This whole website and system is amazing! I can't believe the responses are so efficient and quick. I am in awe. Thank you so much :)
Awesome! Thank you!! Did I mention that I love this service?? I think I did! This is great for us!
SeekingSitters has been great! When I have my grand kids and can't be with them, I love that someone safe and fun is there to take care of them.
We are so pleased with the service. Every sitter we have had has been amazing. I love that they bring additional activities to our house so that my kids have more options. Thank you!!!
I love that I can count on SeekingSitters not just for date nights, but also while I am working or have errands. We have no family here so I would literally get nothing done if it weren't for this service!
We used SeekingSitters for our daughter's wedding and I have to say, it was the best decision I made. Knowing the the kids were in great hands and being able to focus on the things I needed to do made my job as mother of the bride much easier! Thank you so much!!!
We have had so many great sitters even able to manage our daughter's diabetes. We appreciate the attention SeekingSitters has given our family
I love SeekingSitters. It has led to a less stressful career on my part to know that I have backup when needed.
We have never been more happy than with SeekingSitters. Thank you for offering such a great service in Lubbock!
I have never had a bad experience with SeekingSitters. I can't imagine using anyone else!
To be honest we were very hesitant using a service like this because, as a mom, I wanted to be sure I knew who my kids were playing with. After using the service 2 times now I can say that I would recommend SeekingSitters to EVERYONE! Love, Love, Love it!
We signed p last minute because we were in a bind and Julie did an amazing job getting us processed and finding our first sitter. I love that I can call anytime to get a sitter and that when we travel, using SeekingSitters is an option. Thank you!!
Our family is very pleased with SeekingSitters. Our kids look forward to the times we go out because they enjoy playing with the sitters so much!
We recently moved to San Antonio from Lubbock and the most disappointing thing is that there is no one here to call when we need a great babysitter. We miss SeekingSitters in Lubbock!
We have always had such great experiences. Every time a sitter has come, it has been fantastic!
My friends are always asking me "How do you have time to take evening classes and do all the extra things you do to take care of yourself?" My answer "SeekingSitters". I seriously don't know what I would do without you! Thank you!
SeekingSitters spring break camp was a huge help to me!!
We don't have a consistent need for sitters but when we do, I am glad I can call SeekingSitters and I don't have to worry about who is with my kids while I am gone. It's great!
My 4 year old asked her grandmother if she wanted to "be a real sitter." She told her Mamma that "real sitters" bring a bag of toys with them!
Our experience with SeekingSitters has been outstanding! Every girl we have had has been perfect. We love that the college students have so much energy and are the perfect fit for our family.
My in-laws live in town so we haven't used SeekingSitters as much as we first anticipated but every time we do, it is the best experience. The sitters are all so great!
This service is a life saver! I have 4 kids and I promise you I couldn't do it without SeekingSitters!
Every sitter we have had in our home from SeekingSitters has been amazing! I wouldn't trust anyone else.
We have used SeekingSitters twice and the service is amazing. It's so easy and both the sitters we had were better than we could have ever expected!
I appreciate SeekingSitters so much. I was in a real bind and you saved my neck with a wonderful sitter for my grandchildren. I will definitely use your services again. - Lynn
l love SeekingSitters. What a wonderful concept it is but what a disaster it could be if it was not run with the level of excellence and professionalism that our Lubbock SeekingSitters has consistently maintained.
Ann was terrific. Our two boys thought she was one of the best sitters we have hired.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful service to Lubbock. You can't imagine how much we appreciate you.
We have no family in the Lubbock area so when we discovered SeekingSitters we were overjoyed. This is such a lifesaver. The fact that I can book a qualified sitter for my kids without being worried about their safety is amazing! It's so simple and so safe.
I so appreciate Julie and the service she provides. This service make my life stress free because of how efficient and dependable they have been.
Being a single Dad and new to SeekingSitters, I had no idea what to expect, when I decided to use the service for an extended out-of-town assignment. Not knowing any of the sitters, we decided to take a chance with Megan M, and I could not have been happier! Megan was delightful, personable, and responsible. She very cheerfully took on the task of shepherding my four challenging children, with tremendous patience and poise. I am very happy to have found SeekingSitters, and to have met Megan. My children loved her, and she is a great asset to SeekingSitters. Thanks to Megan and Julie for making our event a great success.
Kristen did a fabulous job for us! She helped the kids make Mother's Day cards for us, and played with Play Doh, too! Also, the house was spotless when we got home...she even cleaned up from dinner and put away the dishes! (Definite plus for me!) All the kids have asked when she will be coming back...we hope soon!
We had had the opportunity to use a few different sitters in our home and each time I am amazed at how professional they are. All the worries I had when I signed up have disappeared.
Ann is absolutely wonderful! The kids loved her and I felt great about leaving the baby. When we got home all 3 were fast asleep. We will definitely have her back. The kids still talk about her.
So great! When I got home my 2 year old was trying hard to tell me all the fun things they did and was dancing around "like a bird and an airplane".
Stephanie figured out her favorite cartoon and made puppets out of paper bags that looked just like "Max and Ruby" Really Great, will for sure ask for her again!
Kyla was great! My children had a lot of fun with her and are now asking when they can go visit Kyla! This was our first experience with someone we didn't already know and it went off without a hitch! She was on time, professional and yet full of activities and energy compatible with playing with a 3 and 5 year old. We would definitely ask for Kyla again.
I am so happy this type of service exists in Lubbock. I have been very pleased with all the sitters.
We had a huge group event last week and used 8 sitters from SeekingSitters. Every sitter was so professional and it was so great to see familiar faces. There was some miscommunication on the location and the sitters each contacted me and were so understanding and flexible. I really appreciate the amazing job they do every time.
