For large events and multiple sitter bookings, payment will be made to each sitter individually.
Tipping is greatly appreciated and the industry standard is to tip your sitter as you would a waiter at a restaurant 18-25% is customary but not required. Sitters are always very appreciative of any tip they receive. 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. There is automatic gratuity of 20% for all bookings that fall on National Federal Holidays and Halloween and the day before and after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
If you need to add additional children to your booking you may do so, please reach out to us at 850-333-9400 to add. We can split payments between families if needed. For more than 6 children you may need 2 sitters. If there are more than 2 infants under 2 or an infant under 2 with other young children we may need to arrange a second sitter. When 2 sitters are present each sitter must be paid on her own Square Account and will be paid a full rate for half the number of children present. Terms and Conditions All minors under the age of 16 are considered children for booking purposes.
We can swim, bike, play outside, or do any activity you would like and the children are capable of. Please let your sitter know what activities would work for your family when she arrives. These activities may be denied or terminated based on the children's abilities and temperament.
If you have teenagers 13-15 that will be self-sufficient and do not need any care from the sitter we will ask that you sign a waiver releasing Premier Sitters of liability, Premier Sitters reserves the ability to deny a waiver at any time before or after it is signed and the waivers are considered on a case by case basis, including while the sitter is on the job. All children 12 and under are automatically the responsibility of any adult present and therefore must be included in your booking and payment. If a minor 16 or older is requiring care, Premier Sitters reserves the ability to charge for that minor as if they were a child as a part of the booking.
We cannot and do not provide adult care services. We do not have the proper certifications for adult care.
Pets must be disclosed at the time of your booking, some Sitters have pet allergies or asthma that can be triggered by pet hair, dander, or saliva. If a pet is not disclosed prior to the sitter’s arrival there will be an additional non negotiable $30 fee and 20% gratuity will automatically be added. If the sitter is allergic to, has asthma, or a fear of the animal she may refuse service and the client will be charged for the full booking rate with a 20% gratuity added.
30A Babysitters, Premier Sitters, LLC has a policy to not discipline children. Our sitters bring Dum Dums with them to reward your children and help break the ice if needed for children with separation anxiety. We will also bring games, activities, crafts, music, or other items to facilitate fun.
If there are behavioral issues that cannot be addressed through positive reinforcement, distraction, or other non-disciplinary means we will reach out to the parents to ask for assistance up to and possibly including asking the parents to return home. The parents would still be responsible for paying for their agreed upon booking in full, and gratuity would be automatically added at 20%. 30A Babysitters have permission to begin recording audio or video if the sitter feels your child or children are causing issues that would require your discipline. We will not touch your child during these times unless they are about to harm themselves or another child. We may use our body to block a child without using hands, unless using our hands is the only way to prevent injury. We will ask you to return immediately if in this situation.
We have a zero tolerance policy for child on child bullying or violence regardless of the reasons or relationships between children. In the event that any child assaults another child in anyway or verbally harasses another child, we will call the parents to come home. Parents will be charged the full rate of the booking with a 20% auto gratuity. If the child verbally harasses the sitter, the parents will be called to address the harassment. If the child assaults the sitter the parents will be required to come home and pay the full rate for the booking plus a 20% gratuity.
When parents are asked to come home it is a requirement, if parents refuse to come home we have no choice but to contact the local authorities to go to the parents location to escort them back to the booking to pay the sitter in full and relieve her of her care of the minor children.
We reserve the right to take photographs and video children if we feel we need too.
We understand that cancelations happen. You can cancel anytime prior to 24 hours before your booking start time. Cancelations that occur within 24 hours will be charged at 50%. This is because it is difficult to recover lost wages for your sitter(s) and our team with such short notice. Illness cancelations - We will waive the cancelation fee if client presents a doctor's note verifying illness of one of the children listed on the booking, or illness of one of the parents/guardians listed on the booking. We will honor the illness exception for an additional 24 hours after the cancelation and process a refund once the doctors note has been verified. Failure to pay the 50% cancelation fee will result in the scheduled sitter(s) arriving ready to babysit. Once sitter(s) have arrived the full amount of the booking must be paid to the sitter prior her to leaving the property.
Failure to pay for agreed services- We will contact local authorities to assist the sitter(s) in recovering her/their booking fee(s) from clients. Failure to pay agreed service fees as per terms and conditions is theft according to Florida Statute 812.012. Theft of services will be reported to the local police or sheriff department immediately upon refusal to pay agreed amount or within the same day as the canceled booking. Canceling credit transactions for agreed fees is theft under FL statute 812.02 and it is also credit card fraud which is a federal crime. Theft and Credit Card Fraud will both be immediately reported to the state of Florida and clients home state as well as charging and issuing credit card companies. All theft will be reported to the local authorities in our local jurisdiction for prosecution. We take theft from our sitters/team and credit card fraud seriously.
Over-time is considered anytime between 12:00 am and 2 am, the rates will be charged at time-and-a-half. After 2 am the rates will be double-over-time which would double the normal rates. Bookings that last longer than 8 hours will be charged at 1.5x over-time for time exceeding eight hours.
Cancellations- if you need to cancel your booking you may do so up until 24 hours prior to booking. Cancellations within 24 hours will be charged at 50% of agreed booking time. An invoice will be sent to client. If the client does not pay the invoice the sitter will not be canceled. We can work with families who need to rearrange their schedule in order to keep their booking. If you have a local doctor's note for one of the children or parent of the children we will waive the cancelation fee. We do not allow for poor weather as an exception to the 24 hour cancelation policy. Unless there are weather emergency alerts for the area that would make travel dangerous for sitter or clients. If we must cancel or rebook for the safety of the family and the sitter, there will be no penalty. If the sitter has weather emergency alerts for any part of her travel to the booking we may need to cancel, delay, rebook or schedule a different sitter. If Premier Sitters/30A babysitter must change your booked sitter we will make you aware as soon as possible of who the sitter will be. These instances are rare.
Changing the sitter does not void your booking or the terms and conditions of your booking, including the 24 hour cancelation policy.
