Date:11/5/2009

CHICAGO, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With Swine Flu (H1N1 influenza) outbreaks already resulting in more than 600 school closings this fall and daycares quickly reaching maximum capacity, an increasing number of parents are finding themselves without child care options; but not Sittercity.com parents. On Sittercity.com, the nation's largest and most trusted online source for qualified babysitters and nannies, the number of parents finding sitters to cover last-minute care needs before the need arises has increased by 37% over the same period last year.

Sittercity has over a million on-line sitter profiles across the country that provides detailed information on each caregiver, including experience, pictures, background checks, references and parent reviews. Sittercity.com has also briefed its sitters on the current flu situation, and has specifically equipped them with flu preparedness information from the American Red Cross.

Sittercity.com offers tips on you can develop a swine flu contingency caregiving plan:

Tip #1 - Know What You Want in a Sitter. Parents need to determine their sitter requirements before they begin their search. For example, is it important that the caregiver has been vaccinated for the H1N1 flu?

If this or other criteria is important to you, include it in your job posting or make it a question during the interview process.

Tip #2 -Start Early. Plan ahead and make sure you have an alternative child care plan in place before your child's school or day care center closes its doors due to an outbreak. Sittercity.com gives parents instant access to hundreds, if no
