Find Your Next Babysitter at Care Today! 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 4 Hire

CARE 4 HIRE Visit Site

Cost:

$19.99/month + $10 registration fee OR $99.99/year

Free to browse babysitters

Free 7-day trial of full service

Care4Hire has been matching parents with qualified caregivers since 1987. Their service also includes referrals for Tutoring, Housekeeping, Pet Care, and Miscellaneous Help.

One great feature of Care4Hire is the ability to preview their service in not one but two ways. First, you can enter your zip code and get a list of registered babysitters in your area — with no other personal information. That lets you know right away if there are any potential matches in your area, and you don't even have to create an account.

When we entered our zip code, we found a decent variety of babysitters in our area. The list was not sortable by location, though - so we had to go through many pages of results to find the ones specifically in our area and not just in our general metro region.

If you decide you want to try Care4Hire's service, you can set up an account and post a job during a free one-week trial. During those 7 days, you'll be contacted by potential caregivers, letting you see if it's worth paying for a full membership to always have enough babysitters to choose from. After the first week, you'll need to choose a membership plan: either $19.99 per month with a $10 registration fee, or $99.99 for a full year.

One area where Care4Hire comes up short compared with our highest-ranked babysitter referral service is with background checks. Caregivers can opt to pay for a background check, but it's not required; in fact, Care4Hire specifically states that they do absolutely no pre-screening on any of the babysitters who register with them, and they recommend that you screen them yourself. Of course, you could decide only to allow those babysitters who have paid for background checks to interview for the job, but that's an extra step some people would rather not have to deal with - especially with other babysitter referral services that automatically perform basic background screening on every registered caregiver.

We also were puzzled by Care4Hire not having a rating or accreditation with the Better Business Bureau. For a company that has been in business for more than three decades, that was surprising. And, other than a handful of testimonials and some outdated TV show mentions (Jon and Kate Gosselin, anyone?), we didn't find many current reviews from families using Care4Hire to find good babysitters.

Care4Hire is affordably priced, and we like being able to give their service a try before committing to one of their membership plans. But, in most respects, it's not the strongest option among babysitter referral services today.

Continued from above

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best babysitter services available today. We hope these reviews help you find a babysitter you can feel confident with!
