River City Sitters strives to provide the best care available in the Triangle Area. As parents,we understand the hesitation that parents feel about hiring a sitter they don’t know. We know there are many ways one can search for child care providers, but what makes us unique is that we do it all for you. We do our very best to find the perfect fit for your family, and each placement is unique because each family is unique, as are their specific needs, and we do our best to match the perfect sitter to your’ family’s individual needs. We spend a lot of time screening our families and our sitters & we strive to understand each family’s vision then match the sitter accordingly.
Our promise to you: Our sitters are professionals. They show up on time and ready to provide a fun, safe and engaging experience for your precious children. We strongly encourage parents to hire a sitter to come for a few hours when they are home to observe the way the sitter interacts with their child. We strive to make the entire experience safe and easy for you. Once a family joins River City Sitters, we are an ongoing resource for your childcare needs.
What people are saying about us:
“Shout out for River City Sitters – wrote to Kim Burnside at 3:20p – I had plans to meet friend for dinner to celebrate her birthday but received text that my husband – he was asked to work double shift and could not watch munchkin – she had a great sitter at my home by 5:30p so I could make my dinner plans! If you are looking for a sitter she is a great resource! Highly recommend.” – Erin H
“I recommend Peak City Sitters! They are great; all the sitters we’ve used are impressive and Kim has worked very closely with us to fill unusual nanny needs. I can’t recommend them highly enough.” – Elizabeth E
“Please take a moment to check out Peak City Sitters I know they would be happy to help you find a sitter to meet your needs.” – Teresa M
“We have used River City Sitters for about 6 months. We have two young boys that are very energetic and the sitters we have gotten have been amazing. They have taken care of them, cooked them dinners, and played with them for hours. The service is very quick to pair us with a sitter once we’ve put in a request, usually within an hour or two. If we request a specific sitter they will usually honor that request unless the sitter has a conflict. We used to only feel comfortable letting family watch our kids, now we are more comfortable with the sitters with this service.” – Josef B
“My family has used River City Sitters on numerous occasions! They are an amazing baby sitting service. I have even requested a sitter two hours before needing one and they were able to accommodate us! My daughter loves them so much that she asks for us to go out so a babysitter can over and play! We have recommended them to all of our friends. As of now three other families that we are friends with use them now and absolutely love them as well. We cannot say enough good things about River City Sitters!!” – Gina C
“We have had and continue to have an excellent experience with Peak city sitters. Locally owned company with moms who are really vested in providing childcare to Other moms – we have had great childcare provided through them. Sitters were well placed to meet the needs of our family. They also helped us organize an event where sitters were fantastic to work with especially taking care of children with special needs.” – Parvathy R
“River City Sitter has been great to work with! We’ve worked with several of their sitters and each one has been very nice, prompt, knowledgeable and respectful. The website also makes it easy to schedule sitters and pay the scheduling fee. I’ll definitely keep using them!” – Megan J
“I’ve had 2 great experiences with River City Sitters. We had only ever used sitters we knew, or sitters of close friends, so I was a little nervous. But so far we have felt very comfortable with the 2 different sitters we’ve used. I highly recommend this service!” – Jennifer M
“We have been a client of River City for quite some time, and are extremely pleased with the service. Having moved to NC with no family in the area, we were nervous to leave our kids with just anyone. River City screens their sitters thoroughly and has them get CPR certified before they can work with any family. Kim (the owner) goes above and beyond to make sure we have a sitter, even when we have a last minute request. We are so grateful to have this local/mom-owned and operated business right here in the triangle area!! I highly recommend River City Sitters.” – Melissa H
“Love River City Sitters! They have been such a great help for me and I don’t know what I would have done without them! Professional, caring, and committed to the services they offer. I would recommend them to anyone for their childcare needs!” – Katherine P
