All About us! Since 1998, Sitters at the Shore has been providing baby sitting services to many families visiting our islands.
Sitters at the Shore is owned and operated by local school teacher, Christine Meehan. She has lived in Cape May County for the past 30 years and has been known as the matchmaker for families looking for the perfect sitter since 1998. Every parent wants a calm, positive and engaged caregiver as their sitter. We seek out teachers and experience childcare providers. We personally interview each candidate, running background and reference checks so you can be confident in our sitter referral process.
Who are the sitters?
Our sitters range in age from 18 to 70 years old, they are fully screened and background-checked by our agency. They are nurturing, caring, responsible sitters who enjoy playing, laughing, entertaining, and caring for the young and old. The majority of sitters are present or former teachers, aides, substitutes or college students majoring in education or other related fields.
