You're Busy. We're Here to Help.

It’s our reality that children often end up stuck behind a device for hours with “junk food” activities, such as playing games or watching endless videos—missing vital opportunities to engage with others and be stimulated in healthier ways.

Virtual Childcare

Screen Sitters connects families with providers who entertain kids ages 5-12 via 1:1 live video chat.

You tell us what your child is interested in during session booking, and our sitter will plan custom experiences, ensuring your child is captivated and at ease.
