Frequently Asked Questions
How does STEM babysitting work?
Your sitter will arrive with all of the supplies needed to perform exciting STEM projects and experiments with your little ones. She teaches them about the concepts and mechanisms they observe throughout the experiment and performs 1 experiment every 2 hours. We keep track of which experiments your child has done so they learn new concepts each time!
How is my sitter chosen?
Our vetting process includes extensive interviews, thorough searches through work history and referrals, background checks, training and CPR certification verification. Based on the information given in your online application or over the phone, we choose the sitter that best matches your desired schedule, preferences and values.
