About Us

 

Select Sitters was started in 2011 in Lynchburg, Virginia by Caleb and Kara Varnell. Kara was the "go to" sitter and nanny for her friends and family when she was in college, and she quickly saw a desperate need for childcare that she and Caleb couldn't meet on their own. What originally started out with contracting college students to provide date nights to families on the weekends, quickly grew into a full service babysitting and nanny placement agency servicing the Triangle and Wilmington areas of North Carolina. 

The Varnell's are NC natives, and knew they wanted to move back home to be closer to family, so they made the decision to move back to Raleigh. With that move came the birth of the Triangle branch of Select Sitters, and shortly after, they started the Wilmington branch as well, where the Varnell's frequent for business and fun in the sun! 

Select Sitters has an extensive list of babysitters who provide backup and on-demand care to our families, recurring babysitters for consistent needs, as well as a large pool of nannies looking to be placed part-time or full-time with families for long-term placements. Thank you so much for trusting us to care for your family!

Kara is the owner of Select Sitters. She is a mom of two rambunctious and sweet children. Luke who is 5, and Eliza who is 2 going on 20! She has worked in just about every role working with children in her career including: babysitter, summer nanny, live-in nanny, live-out nanny, date nights, overnights, and working with special needs. She has a Master’s degree in Human Services with a focus on Marriage and Family, and thoroughly enjoys building relationships with both her clients and  nannies. Kara is married to her high school sweetheart Caleb, co-owner of Select Sitters, who is a Real Estate Attorney in Raleigh. In the very limited free time she has, Kara enjoys reading, baking, the beach, family game and movie night, and being outside.
