A happy family or a successful career – which do you choose? This question is plaguing over 3.2 million dual-income families in Germany facing a severe gap in childcare options. Social dynamics are transforming: more women continue to enter the workforce meaning more families are made up of two working parents trying at the same time to raise their children, facing outdated public care-taking models and long waitlists for childcare facilities.
This is where Sittery can help. Sittery is an innovative digital solution connecting families with in-house screened, trained, trustworthy babysitters with simplicity and time-efficiency. A bespoke matching algorithm allows families to find babysitters tailored to their unique requirements and schedules, while an in-house Training Portal provides high-quality assurance amongst all Sittery babysitters. Sittery is here to support families, but not only as a digital platform – we are growing a genuine community based on real relationships, creating a space for families and sitters alike to find fulfillment through inspiration, information, and connection. At Sittery, we’re built to care.
