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.

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:

  • Background checks. Are background checks already completed on the babysitters that are offered? What aspects are checked?
  • Fees. What does each babysitter company charge for their service, and what does that specifically include?
  • Selection. A service with thousands of babysitters will result in a higher chance of success finding a quality babysitter. How large is the database of candidates? has reviewed and ranked the best babysitter services available today. We hope these reviews help you find a babysitter you can feel confident with!
