Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FIND A SITTER?

Using our proven Complete Family Approach®, we work quickly to find a number of qualified sitters in your area. This process can take up to a week, depending on your family’s unique needs. Once you have met with a local CNST professional, you will be able to start scheduling sitters.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR SITTERS?

We’re constantly recruiting from a variety of top-notch sources, including college campuses, established community networks, local public and private school connections, and online resources, including our own web site. Many of our quality candidates are referred to us directly by families and Sitters who love working with us. Sitters seek us out because they want to work with a reputable service that offers them professional development and guidance, and legal employment.

HOW IS THE SITTER PAID? DO YOU BILL US OR DO I PAY THE SITTER DIRECTLY?

We pay your Sitter through College Sitters at an hourly rate. This rate is all inclusive, meaning we handle all the payroll and legal details: state and federal taxes, unemployment, FICA, Medicare, workman’s compensation, general and professional liability insurance and non-owned car insurance. The hourly rate also includes payroll services, ongoing professional guidance. We will bill either ACH/credit card on file for hours worked on a bi-weekly basis. To make sure you’re always in the loop, you can see your family’s detailed timesheets anytime through our secure, online family resource center.
