Heading to San Jose, California? Whether you are coming to town for a business trip, to go to a Sharks game, or explore the many day trip possibilities from Santa Cruz to Monterey, we can give you the peace of mind that comes with leaving your children with an excellent babysitter that you can trust.
Our childcare professionals are not only fully screened, First Aid and CPR certified, background checked, and drug tested but they are personally interviewed by our staff, who only refers sitters they would trust with their own children. We have a diverse group of sitters who have experience with children of all ages as well as experience caring for children with special needs.
Our babysitters come directly to your hotel, AirBnb, or vacation rental while you attend to business or pleasure in and around Silicon Valley. Our sitters arrive ready to entertain your children with a fun bag of age-appropriate toys, games, books, and activities. Additionally, our sitters arrive in a Destination Sitters’ polo shirt with a photo ID tag so you can rest assured your children will be in the best hands possible.
Booking is easy! Fill out our online form or give us a call at 888-SIT-KIDZ.
Babysitting Rates for San Jose
- All sits will be charged at least a four-hour minimum.
- Your location may have additional fees, such as parking fees.
- Babysitters may be paid with cash or credit card.
- Please read our cancellation policy below.
Confirmed sits must be cancelled in advance or a cancellation fee will be charged.
Please read through the entire policy; cancellation fees vary depending on the length of time of the sit and the number of days booked. Please call us if you have any questions!
Destination Sitters babysitting requests for one-day and only 4 hours must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance of the reserved babysitting start time or a 4-hour minimum charge at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged.
For two, three or more multi-day sits of 4 hours each, a 4-hour minimum charge at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged for each day that sits have been booked, unless the sits are cancelled the same number of days in advance. So, for example, if you have booked a hotel babysitter for two days, that sit of two days must be cancelled at least 48 hours before the reserved sit start time or two 4-hour minimum charges (i.e., 8 hours – one 4-hour charge for each of the two booked days) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged. Sits of three days must be cancelled at least 72 hours before the reserved sit start time or three 4-hour minimum charges (i.e., 12 hours – one 4-hour charge for each of the three booked days) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged. Sits of four days must be cancelled at least four days in advance of the reserved sit start time or four, 4-hour minimum charges (16 hours) at the confirmed hourly rate will be charged.
For sits longer than 4 hours each day or for more than four days, at a minimum, the above policy shall apply; however, please contact the office to see if an additional cancellation policy could apply to your sit.
