On-demand, high-quality sitters at the ease of your computer.


High quality sitters in your area available at the ease of your computer. For parents, by parents. Birdie aims to solve the problem of short-term childcare for busy families by providing trusted, high quality sitters available for booking anywhere from 24 hours to 2 months in advance.

Birdie Sitters are all screened and meet requirements such as Child CPR/Choking, Police Information Check with Vulnerable Sector Search and at least 1 year childcare experience.

Payments are all made electronically after the booking via a secure third-party provider. No need to stop at the ATM on the way home!

Here's what parents are saying...

This really is a great service. We rarely go out because it is so hard to find (and trust) sitters.

Thank you! Jessica was nothing short then great- we were very impressed. The kids really liked her and we will definitely be using her again in the near future. I referred you guys to three other parents last night at our event.
— Celine J, Edmonton
We just wanted to thank you for our recent experience! We had one of your sitters yesterday (Sabrina), and were very happy with the entire process. From submitting our request to payment, it was an easy to use system. It made us feel more at ease leaving our one year old for the first time with a non-family member knowing our chosen sitters profile and that all of her qualifications were vetted. Overall, we were happy with the service and will use again/recommend to others!

Praise was fantastic! My boys warmed up to her once I left. She’s so friendly and kind. My toddler had a blast playing with her and she was able to ease the stress of my 10 month old (separation anxiety). For sure I’ll be using Birdie Break again, and hope that Praise will be available. Thank you very much!

Let us help you get that break! Go on a date, complete some errands (sans children) or maybe find some zen in a yoga class.
