Stellar Sitters – How It All Began

I have always loved children and started helping in the church nursery before I can remember. I officially started babysitting at age 12 and by the time I was a senior in college, I had approximately 30 families in my babysitting network, too many to babysit for alone! In August of 2004, the beginning of my senior year at Meredith College, after relentlessly running up and down the hall of my dorm asking for a Friday night babysitter for one of my regular families, I knew there had to be a more effective way to match families with sitters. After a bit of brainstorming and helpful advice, “Amanda’s Babysitting Service”, was born.

After realizing that there were many great babysitters and many families in need of sitters, I decided to be the “bridge” to connect them and named my service “Sitter Connection”. The service began with The Babysitting List and has expanded to include additional services, including the one-time and weekly placement service, group placements and the premium placement service.  For eight years the company operated as Sitter Connection.

In 2013 a company in Ohio with a similar name, “The Sitter Connection”, trademarked its brand which required my use of the name “Sitter Connection” to be discontinued.  Although the name changed, everything else remained the same.  Stellar Sitters continues to be managed under my leadership with the same great services and high level of customer care that I have maintained since 2004.

Running the service has been an amazing learning opportunity and has allowed me to meet many great families and sitters. It brings me joy to be able to provide quality childcare for area families. I am here to help families; therefore, I am constantly looking for ways to improve Stellar Sitters. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your babysitting needs, questions, and ideas.

I look forward to hearing from you!
