Weekly Placement

Weekly Placement


The Weekly Placement Service is intended to find a sitter(s) who will come to your home during the specified days/times that you are in need of a sitter each week. Placement periods are January-April, May-August, and September-December. If you are in need of a consistent sitter, please complete the Weekly Placement Request Form. Once I receive your form and the $50 deposit, I will start the search. Finding an available sitter can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks, depending upon whether or not there is a sitter in the network who is available to fill the placement. Otherwise I will seek out new potential sitters to fill the position and will have to check references and interview the sitter(s) before I can pass along their name(s)/contact information. Thanks in advance for your patience and understanding! If you have an urgent need, you may want to consider using the One-Time or One-Week Placement Service to fill in with temporary sitters until Stellar Sitters is able to find a weekly sitter. After a potential sitter is found, I request that the family:

1) Have an in-person interview with the sitter to see if she is a good match for your family.
2) Have a two week trial period to make sure everyone is satisfied with the placement

There will be a non-refundable deposit of $50.00 which will be due before Stellar Sitters will begin the placement process. After I receive your form, I will e-mail you an invoice for the deposit. If for some reason I am unable to fulfill your request (very rare), I will refund your deposit.

Payment for the placement is determined by the number of hours per week that a sitter works and will not be due until after the 2 week trial period. The $50.00 deposit will be deducted from the total amount that you owe. After the trial period, please contact me to confirm how many hours/week the sitter will be working and I will invoice you accordingly. If you would like to continue using the sitter through the next placement period and the sitter is available to continue sitting, instead of going through the placement process again and paying the full placement fee, there will simply be a continuation fee which will be half of the original placement fee. This will be due 2 weeks into the next placement period.

The price list below reflects an initial one-time payment for the legwork that Stellar Sitters will do to find you a sitter for the requested days/times. The price list does NOT indicate weekly payment to the sitter. Instead, the hourly pay rate should be discussed directly with the sitter as the sitters are independent contractors; therefore they set their own pay rate. Average pay rate is $10-$15/hour.

Hours Placement Fee
1-5 $150.00
6-10 $200.00
11-15 $250.00
16-20 $300.00
21-25 $350.00
26-30 $400.00
31-35 $450.00

41-45 $550.00
46-50 $600.00
51-55 $650.00

The continuation fee is 1/2 the placement fee.
