By providing dependable and caring sitters who are always available, we allow mommies and daddies an opportunity for Time Out.

Time Out Sitters are mom-tested and mom-approved, so you can feel comfortable having them watch your little ones while you are taking a Time Out!
Time Out Sitters are:
  • 18 and older
  • CPR trained and First Aid certified
  • Nationwide background and sex offender checked
  • Personally interviewed and reference checked
  • Fun, interactive, and love kids!
Your kids will have so much fun; they'll want to send you to Time Out more often!

Tiffany and Katie met back in 1991 in Mr. Fitzgerald's 6th grade English class. An instant friendship was forged when, on the first day of school, Katie boldly asked if she could have one of Tiffany's dividers from her binder. They've been best friends ever since. Both were in each other's weddings and started families around the same time. Their 20+year friendship saw different career paths for a short time after college, with Katie working in event management and Tiffany executive producing for her husband's music and sound production company. It was their shared passion for kids and family that would bring the two even closer together and encourage their decision to build Time Out Sitters.

When asked what the "secret" to this lifelong friendship and successful business is, both Tiffany and Katie will tell you "constant laughter!" They admit to being one of the fortunate examples of two people who truly love what they do, and it shows-both when it comes to Time Out Sitters and raising families.

As moms, they now understand the need for a night out to rekindle a relationship or let loose with the girls! They believe that babysitters should be affordable and easy to find. Their promise is to provide outstanding babysitters that can be trusted and who will make lasting, positive memories with your children.

Time Out Sitters look forward to getting to know your family!
