For Crying OutLoud! Charges an agency booking fee per session, per day. On occasion, high demand and low supply may require us to ask you to offer more than the below recommended rates in order to secure a sitter.

Multiple sitter sessions can be purchased in packages of 5, 10 or 20 bookings. Booking packages expire 12 months from the date of the first booking session. All multiple sitter session booking fee purchases are non-transferable and non-refundable. (These packages are NOT available for any permanent babysitting arrangements)

An agency fee for a permanent arrangement will be determined based on the specific requirements from each individual family. Please contact us via phone or email for any further enquiries.
