WEE CARE SITTERS
Evolving to meet your short-term household needs
In the spring of 2008, in response to rapidly changing economic conditions,
Wee Care Nanny Agency responded to a new but growing demand for short-term
help. Many parents are currently interviewing for or transitioning into
new jobs or consulting from home. Because your work lives are in flux,
we understand that you are unable to make a permanent commitment to a
nanny. Some of you also want temporary coverage due to daycare closures,
sick children, sick nannies, pregnancy bed rest or just a night out with
your spouse! We asked our registered nannies from our permanent division
if they would be interested in doing on-call sitting on the side, and
the response was a resounding yes! Thus, Wee Care Sitters, a membership-optional
temporary-care branch of our agency, was born.
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.
Our experienced and dedicated temporary nannies are available seven days
a week during days, evenings, overnights and weekends. We also offer same
day coverage for emergencies.
Joining Wee Care Sitters
Becoming a member of Wee Care Sitters for a yearly fee of $199 means
you’ll get a number of exclusive benefits unavailable to non-members.
For starters, you’ll 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’ve 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’ve sent to you in the past. As
a Wee Care Sitters member, you’ll be able to request that favorite
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!
