Do you want a babysitter to work for you on a regular basis? Or are you simply looking for a one-time appointment? Figure out what you want and specify this clearly in your profile description. In this way, you communicate your information clearly to babysitters who are looking for work.

What are your requirements?

On your profile you let babysitters know when you need them, what tasks you want them to perform and how much you are willing to pay. Be as specific as possible – this will help you to get attention from babysitters who fulfill your requirements.

When finding a babysitter, it is important to select someone who suits your family’s needs. Most often, parents seek a babysitter whose availability matches with theirs. However, having a babysitter with excellent ratings and years of experience is important too. Additionally, looking at the candidates’ previous experiences and any references they might have can help you decide whom to choose as your perfect babysitter.
