On-Call Nannies--For Members and Non-Members


Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you need care fast. Wee Care Sitters can provide experienced, qualified, nurturing sitters and other domestic household help for a few hours to get you through a crunch or simply give you a break. Rest assured that we use only our experienced nannies to fill any temporary babysitting positions. The philosophy behind this is simple - our professional nannies make the best sitters. Our temporary nannies are either supplementing their current full-time nanny position, interviewing for a permanent nanny position, or filling in prior to starting a new position.

On-call nannies are available for daycare closures, sick children, fill-in for an absent nanny, date night or any other temporary coverage need. Our temporary nannies can be booked for a day, an evening, or an overnight, with a four-hour minimum.

Joining Wee Care Sitters

Becoming a member of Wee Care Sitters for a yearly fee of $199 means you will get a number of exclusive benefits unavailable to non-members. For starters, you will be able to use our temporary nanny service. If a job change, illness or other family situation means you need help for anywhere from a week to a few months, we have got you covered (see Temporary Nannies). And while all of our temporary nannies are excellent, your children may have developed a special bond with one particular caregiver we have sent to you in the past. As a Wee Care Sitters member, you will be able to request that favorite person specifically.

If your needs are less child focused, Wee Care Sitters also offers temporary companions, house cleaners, party servers and housekeepers. Think of us when you host your next event!

What can I expect to pay my on-call nanny?

The rates nannies charge will vary based on the nanny's experience, education, job details and number of children to be cared for. Generally, experienced nannies earn between $16 and $25 per hour for temporary childcare. Overnight nannies (dinner to breakfast) generally earn between $150 and $250 per calendar day. The family is responsible for paying the on-call nanny at the end of her service.
