We begin the summer placement process in March. In order to keep things affordable, we are happy to accommodate your families’ travel dates, when kids are in summer camp and any other summer plans that you may have. You will only pay for the time that you need a sitter. Our summer sitters are typically found shuttling kids to summer activities, camps, the pool, summer study help or an extra hand we have you covered!
There are two options when choosing to have a summer nanny:
- Buyout: You will pay a one time, non-refundable fee to buyout a sitter from June-August. You and your sitter will create your own schedule together, eliminating the need to pay SMS any scheduling fees.
- Schedule online: If you only need a sitter a few times a week we suggest scheduling online, this way you only choose the specific dates you need. You are charged upfront to ensure you have the same sitter for the entirety of the summer.
Summer sitter placement fees for both the buyout and scheduling online are due June 1st. The deadline for a summer placement will be June 5th, after which you will be added to a wait list.
Rates and fees vary depending on location – please visit SMS location sites to learn more!
