Frequently Asked Questions

What is Virtual Babysitting?
The virtual realm is now a part of our everyday life. Whether it is communicating with family and friends through video calls, or using a variety of streaming platforms, or scrolling through the endless internet, technology keeps us connected. With many kids spending more time at home, it may be difficult for working parents to find the focus needed to accomplish tasks. Parents may also be looking for different kinds of entertainment, enrichment, and opportunities for their children that does not involve direct contact. Virtual babysitting is different from traditional babysitting. The traditional task of keeping children safe and fed, and getting them to bed on time has transformed into captivating a child’s attention and engaging her imagination.
How do I know my child is safe?
Virtual Babysitters Club provides trustworthy comfort for busy working parents! Parents can monitor their child during the session via mobile device. Safety is of the utmost importance, so please remember, that although virtual babysitting is a fantastic opportunity to engage children during these times, no virtual sitter can be 100% responsible for them remotely through a screen.

What safety measures has Virtual Babysitters Club taken in selecting performers who will interact with your child?
Virtual Babysitters Club top priority is the safety of our participants. We have vetted each and every one of our performers personally. Not only must all Virtual Babysitters Club performers complete the onboarding process by our staff, but they must pass a background check by our partnered company Selection (www.Selection.com.) This way we can ensure that all of our Virtual Babysitters Club performers are of the best quality possible.
