Help – I Need a Sitter!

Time Out Sitters Expands its Bulverde/Spring Branch Offering – They’re Also Hiring!

Thanks to the social age we are all connected without much effort. We can turn to Facebook or other outlets to ask for advice or to find a service. One of the most frequent requests we’ve noticed is for babysitting advice or suggestions. It’s tough to find someone reliable and trustworthy even with plenty of social recommendations. You may get a lot of feedback, yet none of them come with referrals and are just not quite right. Of course this is a time to be picky, they are going to be watching your children after all.

When we first heard of Time Out Sitters, it was almost like a dream come true; a company that will supply a top-notch sitter, for a decent price and many times even at the last minute. They do all the dirty work for you and with a ridiculous amount of positive referrals it’s totally a no-brainer. They offer exceptional baby sitting, pet sitting, childcare at social events (weddings, corporate parties), help in church nurseries, staycation sitting at local resorts and recurring help in the summer for working parents or parents who just need an extra set of hands.

The San Antonio based company had just barely started sending sitters to The Branch area when we first tried them a few years ago, but as the area grows so have the requests.

So it is no surprise then that the San Antonio based company has expanded its talent search to include The Branch. At the moment the company is fully equipped to fulfill sitting needs in the area. However, they would love to add local talent to their roster of experienced sitters. Looking for potential sitters age 18 and over, TOS hopes to enhance the available resources of the Bulverde Spring Branch community while also giving positive employment experiences to the new recruits.

So what makes a Time Out Sitters stand out? TOS definitely does its due diligence before hiring, carefully selecting its sitters after a thorough interview, background check and training. Outlined on their site it explains that a Time Out Sitter is:

Experienced: Every sitter is 18 or older with previous experience and a passion for childcare. They have reliable transportation, and are skilled in handling even the most complicated situation.

Certified: Unlike many services, TOS performs background checks every year. Every sitter is CPR and First Aid certified and passes all sex offender and national tests.

Approved: The Time Out Sitter comes highly recommended by a network of parents and sitters. Not only are their references checked, but the owners personally interview every candidate.

All that is a great, but they take it a step further. Each sitter shares with TOS their likes and hobbies, so when families express that their children are interested in crafts or sports for instance they may have a perfect sitter available. However even if there isn’t a specific match, TOS ensures their sitters have been trained to make sure the kids come away with a great experience. As it reads on the TOS website, “They’ve passed all of our tests – including the fun test.”
