Our commitment to safe, superior care

We’re every bit as selective as our parents

Being able to find a sitter online is nifty — as long as you’re confident you’ve found a trustworthy match for your family. That’s why our team puts so much effort into handpicking the very best sitters and carefully prescreening them online and in-person. It’s a lot of work — the kind busy parents don’t always have time for — and we’re happy we can do it for you. Here’s a little more about our industry-leading commitment to safety.

We only work with the best of the best.

Chime is powered by people — the folks at Sittercity. We’ve been connecting families with great sitters since 2001. Our team works seven days a week filtering Sittercity’s database for the top 1% in each Chime neighborhood — sitters who parents like you already know and love. We always meet them in person and we talk to families they babysit for to make sure they’re a good fit. (In fact, their video profiles are clips from their chats with us.) And after they’re on board, we check in regularly to make sure everything’s ship-shape.

We check and check
(and triple-check).

In addition to our personalized vetting process, all Chime sitters undergo ID verification (to make sure they are who they say they are) and enhanced background checks, which are tied to their social security numbers and just about every address they’ve had. We also check every available state’s sex offender registry through Family Watchdog. And we review the publicly-available social media activity of all Chime sitters, to keep an eye out for red flags.
