Sitters, Back-up Care & Other Home Help

Sitters, Back-up Care & Other Home Help

Sittercity is a free service available to UCSF staff, faculty and students. The site is committed to connecting families with the best sitters and nannies that meet their needs.

UCSF families are some of the busiest in the Bay Area; and because there is no one-size-fits-all solution for everyone, most UCSF families can choose from a variety of services: back-up care options (for situations when your regular provider isn’t available) and other on-going home help from Sittercity that suit your needs such as:

  • Before- and after-school sitters.
  • Pet sitters.
  • Tutors, companions, and so much more.
