The days of easily finding a quality neighborhood babysitter are over. Today, working moms and dads find that their hectic schedules are not conducive with getting to know their responsible neighborhood teenagers. Finding a babysitter you can rely on, and that puts you at ease while away, is a rare find.
Instead, many parents use services where they can find quality babysitters, right in their neighborhood. For a fair price, you can review hundreds of profiles and pictures of qualified babysitters. Even those parents looking for babysitters to care for a child with behavior challenges or a disability can find good, experienced babysitters to choose from.
Care offers an excellent babysitter service at an affordable price. Free background checks and the largest database of potential babysitters put it at the top of our list.
Sitter City is a solid company with a well functioning website. We would have liked to have seen background checks included on all providers but otherwise appreciated the free 7 day trial.
Phone a Babysitter is a no frills database of potential babysitters - many younger than 18. We didn't like the lack of search functionality, pictures and missing background checks.
Care4Hire has been in operation for more than 30 years, connecting parents with babysitters and other caregivers in their area. The service lets you browse for free after entering your zip code, and you can get a no-cost 7-day trial of their full service. Membership fees are affordable, and most metro areas have a good range of available babysitters. But, Care4Hire doesn't pre-screen people who register, leaving that up to parents.
UrbanSitter is one of the most technologically-advanced babysitter referral services on the market, harnessing the power of social networking to connect parents with babysitters that are already trusted by people they know. This service is ideal for people living in big cities, and is popular with parents who need someone last-minute. But, the company has gotten a lot of negative feedback, from an "F" rating at the BBB to numerous complaints from both babysitters and parents.
However, babysitter services can vary greatly in what they have to offer. Before you jump online to find a babysitter for your children, you should consider the following:
