WHAT PEOPLE SAY about

30a babysitters

"Premier sitters definitely blew the rest out of the water. We got taken care of in a timely manner even though we called the same day. I can understand it could be hard to find someone at last minute but they did it! ... the sitter we had came fully prepared and treated our 8 month old dearly!"

— Kelsey Jorgensen

Payment is Easy!

All payments are made through Square Point of Sale. Payments are always secure and you will receive a receipt.

 

If you loved your service, tips are very much appreciated. Our staff provides a wonderful service. Babysitters are customarily tipped from 18% - 25%. 

There is automatic gratuity of 20% assigned to bookings of 6 or more children, when checks are split and/or when there are two sitters.

About Our Tea

We are more than a group of individuals, we truly are a team. We work together to provide amazing care and we help each other out every day. There is open communication between all of us in our virtual office. 

Each sitter has been interviewed in person, submitted a resume, and is chosen based on meeting minimum experience requirements and personality. We often work together with large groups and events. We also communicate with each other daily in our virtual office.

All sitters are 20 or older, Pediatric CPR certified, Background checked, and have a minimum of three years of professional childcare experience. They can all act as lifeguards while children swim in pools or in the Gulf.

 

We love to participate in fun activities while we are watching children! Hiking, biking, swimming*, as well as, indoor games, arts and crafts are things we are prepared for when we arrive. 

 

We want your vacation sitter to be the best in the industry and a perfect fit for your family. We offer very competitive salaries and guaranteed bookings. We know that compensating sitters well and safeguarding their schedules keeps a team that parents can rely on.

* Swimming activities must be appropriate for the age and skill level of each individual child along with their temperament. Based on these factors we may decide at any time to withhold or cease swimming activities.

**During the hottest months of the year (typically but not limited to June, July, August) we may limit beach activities according to local heat advisories or based on the heat index. Our staff are working while on the beach and often don't have time to cool off by enjoying a break in the water or shade, eat, or drink which all can lead to dangerous health consequences for people who work outdoors. This does not apply to pools except on a very limited case by case basis 

*** We will not attend or participate in beach activities under red flag conditions or during Red Tide.

Where does 30A Babysitters offer babysitting services?
 

Yes! Our sitters always bring a "nanny bag" with them and they are full of toys, games and activities for all ages. We also encourage nature walks, biking and being outside, if the kids are old enough. Inside play will include a variety of different games and activities for the kids. We love to learn new games too, so if the kids have a favorite one, they can teach us how to play.

We are on vacation and the kids are getting bored with the few toys they brought, will the sitter be able to keep them entertained?
 

All sitters are empathetic and trained on easy ways to help a child feel more comfortable so they miss mom and dad a little less. The first thing we do it talk to parents about our distraction technique and prepare the child for the exist. We keep the child happy and playing so she/he doesn't even notice mom or dad has left. Then when the child asks for mom and dad later we show extra love and care and remind her/him of when they will be home. We play and have so much fun that you child will be very happy and not notice the time flying by!

My child finds saying goodbye for the night difficult, does 30A Babysitters have a way to make my child feel more comfortable?
 

Do you babysit on major holidays?
 

Yes, we work on most major holidays. But we have very limited staff on those days as most of the sitters have families and events to attend to. If your booking falls on Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas Eve, or New Years Eve it will be charged at time-and-a-half plus a 20% gratuity. We offer this as a customary compensation for people who work on Holidays. We appreciate our team for taking time away from their festivities to be there for our clients.
