University Sitters is a Santa Barbara babysitter agency with access to screened, personally interviewed, exceptional child care providers in and around Santa Barbara and Montecito. When Founders began the company in the most rudimentary form, it was called Santa Barbara Sitters.

Our Santa Barbara babysitters are sourced from a variety of colleges in Santa Barbara as well as other Southern California schools.  The main universities that our sitters attend include: UC Santa Barbara [UCSB], Westmont College, and those on a transfer track at SB City College.  We also have recent graduates from other colleges who we happily accept.

For us, the best way to find a babysitter is to start with a great job.  At University Sitters, our sitters are able to take jobs from different families and source as many hours as they need. Babysitters stick with University Sitters throughout their college years, giving our clients access to the best sitters in town.

Our babysitting service has standard rates and procedures, but we are flexible to find an affordable babysitter for your family.  Ask about our nanny placement services – this could be the best option for you!  Also, sign up for our mailing list to the right of this page and get offers for discounts on sitters, nannies, and more.

Our Santa Barbara babysitters are hired at many local hotels, especially the Fess Parker Doubletree, Hotel Oceana, The Four Seasons, and more.
