Founder of is a sitter service that helps connect families with sitters and sitters with jobs. We offer care for children, pets, elders and homes. From the homepage of our website,, parents can actually type in their ZIP code and see all of the sitters in their area. Once they are ready to find that perfect sitter, they can post a description of the ideal sitter for their family.

There are 349 sitters on the website, all of whom have returned a clean background check, are at least 18 years old, have a photo, profile, resume, references and availability calendar viewable online.

Our service is unique in that we not only cater to the family’s needs but their budget as well. Being an online sitter service, we are able to keep our costs low and also keep costs low for our clients. We have three website membership options. Two weeks for $14.95, or monthly for $10 per month plus a onetime $29 sign-up fee, or annual for $89.95. After membership, parents get to tell the sitters how much they are comfortable paying, location of care and all the details. Sitters who feel they meet the parents’ qualifications and are comfortable with the pay rate will apply for the position. This system works for every family’s budget. What if you are unable to find the perfect sitter for your family? Keiki Sitters will refund your money and allow you to keep your membership for free.

Call us old-fashioned, but we still operate with the philosophy that the customer is always right. We do our best to ensure that both families and sitters have a good experience working with our company. As the founder, I grew this company over the last four years through strong ethics, compassion and dedication to providing the highest quality care.

Parents no longer have to cancel their plans or rely on strangers to care for their children. Keiki Sitters has been able to help many families during the financial crisis by either assisting them in finding an affordable sitter to watch their children while parents obtain additional income streams, or by giving parents work opportunities through Keiki Sitters.
