Your Family’s Safety Is Our #1 Priority! We understand our clients’ concern when it comes to leaving loved ones at home. Through our specialized interviewing and placement processes, we can match you with a capable, responsible sitter who will treat your family like her very own. We started this business in June of 1998 because we knew parents visiting our area didn’t have anyone to rely on when it came to finding a babysitter. Parent’s would ask the chamber maid, the front desk clerk, the lifeguard or even the ice-cream scooper. Who were these gals caring for children?  Did they have childcare experience? Did they have a criminal record or negative work history?  They weren’t represented by an agency, background checked, nor referenced checked! This made us feel very uncomfortable and wondered, why didn’t our shore towns have a sitting service for parents? An agency they could call upon to get a sitter who was fully screened? Well, we are proud to say, that in 1998, Sitters at the Shore became the very first Babysitting Agency in Cape May County. We knew a resource for parents was in great need, this is why Care Aware, now Sitters at the Shore was established by a mother and school teacher, Christine.

Hiring a babysitter is serious business and asking just anyone is seriously risky!

So feel free to ask us how we screen our sitters and check out our screening process.

We pride ourselves in giving parents the peace of mind they deserve. Making parent’s and children comfortable and happy is yet another great reason why in 1998, we opened our agency.
