How to Become a Member

We have had wonderful experiences using River City Sitters to fill in the gaps for childcare when none of our regular staff people are available, or when we need extra hands. This has allowed us to provide childcare at times when we were not able to before, which gives us the opportunity to minister to parents in ways that are vital to the life of our congregation. River City Sitters has sent us extremely qualified, professional, and FUN babysitters. When possible, Michelle has assigned the same sitter for a particular time or event, which provides much appreciated consistency for our children. We have been very impressed with the quality of care that River City Sitters provides.– Christ Church, Richmond, VA


Congratulations on taking the first step to enjoying the peace of mind that comes along with hiring a professional to help care for your children. River City Sitters provides highly qualified babysitters  who take their jobs seriously. Each sitter has at least 2 years of childcare experience,  a criminal background check, a valid driver’s license, dependable car, current auto insurance, at least a high school diploma, and is at least 18 years of age.  As many of our sitters are teachers, they have college degrees and training for children with special needs.
