Golden Isles Sitter's Service Fees:

Once you complete your application, Golden Isles Sitters will contact you and discuss your family needs and expectations. 

 

Prior to beginning our process, there will be a one-time annual registration fee. This charge will cover the cost of ensuring you receive the best and most qualified sitter for your family. Golden Isles Sitters is dedicated to recruiting experienced sitters, students from our local colleges, and young professionals. Over the course of our selection process, we will conduct a pre-screening, in-person interview, complete a background check, and verify references. Further, all candidates are required to be CPR and First Aid certified.

There is a placement fee and a scheduling fee, which are daily fees charged to the credit card on file. The placement fee is a charge for finding and placing the most suitable sitter in your home. The scheduling fee is to ensure you have a sitter for your requested days. (Please note these fees only apply to Child Care and ElderCare).  

Golden Isles Sitters will charge a new client meeting fee. This fee will cover the cost of a lockbox for your house keys.
