Welcome... it's so nice to see you!
The Weekend Sitter is a unique babysitting service for busy mommies and daddies in need of safe, affordable, and fun childcare for running errands, shopping, nights out, trips out of town, or just some time to themselves. Since we are owned and operated by parents, we understand how hard it can be to find reliable babysitting services. We are located in Virginia Beach, and work with families all over Hampton Roads.
We are different in that we provide our services in the evening and over the weekend. We are available on short notice and can accommodate sleepovers and weekend stays. We are not a daycare center and do not provide weekly, scheduled childcare.

Finding reliable, safe child care can be frustrating to say the least. I know because as a mommy, I could never find that right person to trust with my little one. Sure, you have family and friends, but they aren't always available. There were always so many daycare centers around, but that was not what I was looking for. I needed someone who could help out when I wanted to shop for Christmas, have a night out with my girlfriends, attend a work event, or go to the gym. I really just needed a babysitter... not a nanny or daycare. So, a few years back, I thought it would be a good idea to start offering babysitting services myself to help out other parents just like me.
My service is a bit different than what most babysitters offer. I provide sitting here in my home on evenings and weekends. I have one child of my own that loves to play and share with other children. We don't sit in front of a TV all day, but rather play games, color, take walks, and sometimes even step out for a movie or some bowling. We love to share our home and our stuff with the kids that share their time with us. I do not take on large groups of children and don't do this just for the money. It's fun for us and we make sure your children have fun while here with us. My house is smoke-free, has a yard, and is located in a safe neighborhood near a park and playground. To see everything that I offer, check out the SERVICES section to learn more.
For security and safety reasons, the Weekend Sitter's phone number and address will not be listed online. All requests for sitting are submitted here on the site. I will then contact you directly. I welcome all new families to stop by, meet us, and make sure we a good match for your sitting needs. I will never share, sell, or publish anyone's personal information when you provide it to me! Promise.
So, does all of this sound like what you are looking for? CONTACT US to get in touch and get started!
