I'm thrilled to introduce you to Macaroni Kid's newest sponsor, SmartSitting!

Finding a babysitter is one thing. Finding an exceptional babysitter — one who is experienced, enthusiastic, and reliable — is quite another.

Enter SmartSitting, an elite childcare network of over 200 of NYC's top babysitters and nannies. Run by three highly educated women with a shared passion for childcare, SmartSitting selectively recruits college-educated babysitters pursuing further education and creative pursuits. The service pairs families looking for afterschool, full-time, part-time, and on-call needs with babysitters who are able to help with homework, shuttling to and from activities, and meal preparation -- all while actively engaging and teaching your children.  So while you’re away, your children won’t just be looked after — they’ll be participating in creative and educational games and projects, like this homemade lava lamp project that the SmartSitting internship team put together: .

SmartSitters are carefully vetted through extensive interviews, reference checks, and background checks, so you can rest assured that your babysitter is qualified, reliable, and on the ball. Directors are accessible 8AM-10PM, M-F and 9AM-9PM on weekends, so you're always covered.  For more information, visit
