SMS® Raleigh brings a unique perspective to town! One of us is a former SMS® Indy sitter and the other is soon to be mom of 3, so we know the value of having a support system in place when life gets hectic. We have experienced first hand how special sitter and family bonds can be. That bond is what makes the SMS® difference.

As sisters, we understand the importance of family. SMS® is here to be that helping hand. If it's an overdue date night, before or after school care, or a trip to the mall, we are here to help lighten the load. Choose US, and let SMS® Raleigh be the blessing your family deserves!

Meet Emily

Owner, SMS® Raleigh

Being originally from the midwest, my husband Brandon and I have fallen in love with life in the South and we have loved raising our family here. We have two little girls, Emerson and Fallon and a new baby due Spring 2020 so we understand how crazy life can get.

Meet Kaley

Owner, SMS® Raleigh

My husband Austin and I enjoy attending the local college sports events, as well as spending time at the trails and parks in the surrounding area. My time as a sitter for SMS® Indy prepared me to better understand the needs of families and how the SMS® services can help to relieve those burdens.

We are honored to serve you and your family!
