Select Sitters LLC Terms & Conditions

 

  1. Membership: All new clients will be given the option of membership versus non-membership. Membership requires a yearly membership fee as outlined on the rates page. Membership fee is charged before member can request first sitter. Membership will renew yearly on the month anniversary of the application (i.e. if you apply May 20th the membership fee will be charged May 1st the following year again). If current card on file is not active, payment will be required before member can request another sitter at the member rate. Non-member rates would apply to any client who is not up to date on their membership fee. Membership allows clients the opportunity to take advantage of our affordable hourly rate as stated on our rates page on the website under “member rates." Members are provided with guaranteed babysitters with at least a 48 hour notice with the exceptions of black out dates (see below for dates).  Members also enjoy priority sitters on holidays, although holiday babysitters are not guaranteed. In addition, membership provides back up nannies and sick care for any sitter who is scheduled for a date. Lastly, members enjoy first choice of spots at our exclusive babysitter speed dating events.

       2. Exceptions: Membership was established as of May 2017. Existing clients who signed up for Select Sitter prior to May 30th, 2017 and paid their initial                           application fee are grandfathered in and receive a lifetime membership to Select Sitters.

      3. Guaranteed Requests: Select Sitters does not guarantee part-time nannies although we do guarantee a sitter for each date as requested even if it is not               the same sitter each time. We do typically strive to place one sitter with each family needing a part-time nanny, but cannot guarantee that it will always be the                  same sitter. With 48 hour notice we guarantee to find you a sitter or we will give you 1 free hour of babysitting to use for a future request.

      4. Time Sheets: Babysitters will present a time sheet upon completion of a job which must be signed by client and hours verified. Select Sitters does not                              round up on hours (unless under the 2 hour minimum) and does bill at the exact number of hours as listed on the time sheet. In situations where a time sheet is               not signed verification will be requested for the total hours worked before billing.

        5. Meet and Greet with a Sitter: Select Sitters is happy to schedule a time for you to meet with a sitter before having them babysit. All time for meet and                 greets will be billed at the appropriate hourly rate. There is no hourly minimum for meet and greets. The only exception is for babysitter speed dating events                        which are free of charge.

        6. Part-Time Nannies & Recurring Sitters: Select Sitters provides recurring sitters to families at the hourly rate  for those needing 1-20                                            hours weekly. If your hours exceed 20 hours on a regular basis, we will ask you to hire your recurring sitter as a part-time nanny under the placement fees.                          Select Sitters will strive to place a consistent sitter with each family who can be consistent and long-term, but it is not a guarantee and may mean we have to                      provide alternate solutions (short term sitter, two part-time sitters, or fill in sitters on certain days as needed). We recommend nanny  placement  for families                   who would like to have a long-term nanny even if it is part-time. If you are utilizing a recurring sitter through the agency, standard rates will be followed as a                     minimum, and may increase according to the market and as cost of services increases with notice. 

       7. Total hourly minimums: Select Sitters does require a 2 hour minimum for all babysitting requests. Occasional exceptions will be made for part-                         time regular nanny positions only and discussed on a case by case basis. If your request is for less than 2 hours you will be billed for the 2 minimum.

         8. Last Minute Care: Requests made with less than 24 hour notice are subject to an additional $2 per hour charge and are not guaranteed. Select Sitters will                make every effort to find care with last minute notice.

         9. Sick Care: If child receiving care should become sick within 24 hours of appointment, family must notify Select Sitters. Select Sitters defines sickness as                     fever over 101, vomiting or diarrhea, oozing from the eye, or other conditions deemed contagious. Select Sitters does not guarantee sitters for sick care, but does               provide them at a rate of $2 more per hour. The sitter would be notified of the sickness and approve to keep the request. If the sitter scheduled is not comfortable              with the sickness we will make every effort to find another sitter who would be. If a sitter shows up to babysit and there is a sick child, then the family will be                      charged at the sick child rate and an additional $15 inconvenience fee.

         10. Mileage Reimbursement: If a sitter is providing transportation for children to and from school, activities, or any other reason mileage                                                     reimbursement may be requested. Families with part-time nannies transporting children on a regular basis will be requesting mileage reimbursement or gas                  reimbursement based on the client’s decision. Any driving over 5 miles per week should be documented by sitter and will be invoiced at the IRS rate of .58 per                    mile unless otherwise agreed upon by agency, sitter, and client.

          11. Direct Contact with Sitters: We understand and welcome relationships between nanny/sitter and family. Nannies and sitters are welcome to give                     out their contact info as they feel comfortable, however, unless they are a part-time nanny for your family direct contact about future requests is                                                    discouraged.  Our babysitters are under contract and cannot directly work for a family Select Sitters has introduced to them. Each time a sitter babysits a time               sheet must be submitted and the appropriate hourly rate will be charged. Babysitters and nannies are available for placement which does mean you can set                         your own hourly rate and pay them directly, but only after they have signed an agreement and the appropriate placement fee is paid. 

          12. Sitter Share:  If two families are utilizing the services of one sitter in the same location, the invoice will include an extra $5 per hour for the use of one                            sitter for two families. If both families are current members and would like to split the invoice, then Select Sitters must be notified in advance in order to send                    1/2 of the invoice to both parties. 

          13. Visiting Families: Families traveling to the area will be charged at non-member rates and must have a current application on file in order to request a                      sitter.

          14. Overnight Care: Select Sitters does provide overnight care at a discounted rate based on a 24 hour period. All sitters providing overnight care must also                     be provided with a place to sleep and car seats for children in case of emergency. Contact us for a specific quote for overnight care.

          15. On Call Care: On call sitters will be paid for 50% of the requested time regardless of if they get called in or not. If they are called in, and the time needed is                     less than half of the reserved timeframe, then the sitter will still be paid for 50% of the time. For example, Hannah agreed to be on call from 10 PM to 8 AM.                          Hannah was called in at 11 PM and stayed until 1 AM. Hannah will be paid for 5 hours regardless. If the time exceeds 50%, then actual time used will be billed                      accordingly.  

          16. Black Out Dates: Select Sitters does not guarantee babysitters on any of the following dates: New Year’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, July                  4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, or the evening of Valentine’s Day. Sitters are available on a                 first come first serve basis on those dates and will be subject to holiday rates as outline on our rates page. Sitters are not guaranteed on the weekend                                             surrounding  Christmas, New Year’s, or Thanksgiving. **Select Sitters does not provide babysitters on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day.**

           17. Clients Outside Service Area: Select Sitters may provide babysitters to clients outside of the outlined service areas at an increased rate. Contact us                      for more information. This service is not guaranteed and will be evaluated on a case by case basis.​

            18. Cancellation Fees: Select Sitters does require a minimum of 12 hour notice for any cancellation of a previously scheduled appointment without a                                    cancellation fee. Once appointment is confirmed the cancellation fee does apply. If given less than 12 hour notice for a cancellation you will see a 2 hour                                      charge appear on your next invoice. This is charged as 2 hours at the hourly rate as applicable on the website. In the case that the sitter shows up for a                                          scheduled appointment and is asked to leave before the scheduled end time, client will be charged for 50% of the time or the 2 hour minimum, whichever is                          greater. 

            19. Status of Babysitters & CPR/First Aid CertificationsAll babysitters and nannies you will encounter working with our agency are                                       Independent Contractors and are working as individual childcare providers and not employees of the company. Independent Contractors are liable for  their                    own actions and are not acting as agents of the company. Sitters are required to obtain their CPR and First Aid certifications within 30 days of first sit. 

            20. Non-Member Terms & Rates: Select Sitters does offer non-member rates for those who need one-time or very occasional sitters.

             21. Inclement Weather Policy: Select Sitters does not guarantee babysitting in inclement weather: snow, ice, hail, hurricane, etc. In the case that the                        client requests babysitting and road conditions are not accommodating for the sitter, Select Sitters may suggest that client pick up their sitter and bring                                them home. Comfort driving in inclement weather is up to the discretion of each individual sitter.
