What is a Recurring / Long Term Booking?

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 takes 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! 

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 book them using our Recurring Booking System.

How to Find a Recurring Sitter

Fill out the Request Form

Fill out the form below to tell us more about your needs and join our waitlist for a long-term sitter or sitter team! NOTE: The Long Term List is currently closed, but we will notify those who fill out the form when we are connecting new long term families and sitters!

Sign Up for a Basic Membership

Once we find a sitter who matches your needs, all you’ll need is a preliminary membership (a basic one is all you need) and we’ll send you their profiles! If you’re then interested in being connected with them via email to set up a time to get to know them, whether it be an email, call, Facetime or in-person booking, let us know and we are happy to make the connection!

Adding them To your Account

Booking Your Recurring Sitter!

After our team links your accounts with your sitter or team of sitters, our Recurring Booking System makes it easy! As a member with an active membership, you’ll be able to book up to three months in advance and will only be automatically charged for each booking 72 hours before it occurs. We take care of all the payments from you and to the sitter, and after booking them you’ll be set to go! See the Step by Step on How to Book a Recurring Booking for More information!

Does all of this sound great? The first step is to submit a request for a long-term sitter using the form above! We can’t wait to get started and have you join our Broadway Babysitters Family!

Ending Long Term Sitter Needs

After booking with your sitter long term, if you find yourself without the same hours or needs, we recommend giving your sitter(s) a 2 week warning to ensure they have time to find another source of income/another family to fill the change. This helps make sure that not only are the sitters supported to pay their bills, but also that they can give you all the commitment and support YOU need to have reliable and consistent care.
