Sitting Made Simple® is the local, safe and reliable option for families and sitters since 2008. SMS® connects families and sitters for those last minute needs, date nights, Mom breaks, and the highly sought after consistent care program offering before and after school up to full-time child care needs.

In 2015, we launched the first of the SMS® franchises, now serving families and sitters in Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland OH, Dallas and Fort Worth TX, Indy IN, Nashville TN, Oklahoma City OK, Raleigh NC and Wichita KS.
