What is a Recurring / Long Term Booking?

You are here:

A Recurring or Long-Term Booking, is when you are looking to schedule the same days and times each with the same sitter or team of sitters. Need some help picking Emma and Junior up from school and bringing them home to start homework every Monday – Friday 3 – 7pm? We’ve got you covered! 

Part of what makes our Broadway Babysitters so wonderful is that as artists and actors they are fun, entertaining, and ENGAGING to your kids. Our sitters don’t sit them in front of the TV — they WRITE and PERFORM a TV Show with your kids by the time you get home! 

However, being an artist can also lead to an unpredictable schedule with auditions and callbacks, so we love to put together a team of sitters who share the days! For example, one sitter takes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and the other take Tuesday and Thursday! This way, your kids feel comfortable with sitters they recognize, and the sitters can help cover for each other if an audition comes up! 

With COVID-19 affecting the theater industry, we have more sitters happy to be matched and commit to a family for more days and hours, so a team is less necessary! As Broadway come back , the availability of our sitters may change, at which point we would make sure you either have another sitter added to your team, or we find a sitter who would match your new Childcare needs!

The good news is also that if for any reason all sitters on your team are not available to cover a day, we still have a WONDERFUL Team of Sitters who are right there to help out, so you are never left without someone to care for your kids! 

If you decide it’s a great fit, booking them is as easy as continuing your membership (or Changing to a different one) we will add them to your account as a recurring sitter, and you’ll be able to booking them using our Recurring Booking System.
