Post Where to Find Babysitters on the Internet
by: Doreen Lee

These days, the search for an appropriate babysitter for your children is easier because of the numerous venues where you can look for candidates. If you’re new to the neighborhood or if you simply don’t have a lot of time to spare browsing through your local community bulletin boards or making phone calls to local colleges to find worthy potentials, the Internet can help you out with your search.

The good thing about taking your search online is it’s so convenient. You’re probably already working in front of the computer most of your time anyway so it wouldn’t hurt to squeeze in a few minutes of your time to search for potential babysitters online. The Internet offers numerous resources to help you look for a caregiver in your area. There are a lot of websites that are dedicated to babysitter and nanny searches. These sites are divided into the free services and those that charge a fee.

Online classified ad listings

You can start your search for babysitters on the Internet through the online classified ad websites. Sites such as Craigslist have childcare categories in their localized sections to help you streamline your options to those that are located within your city. You can either post a job listing on the site or go over the service offerings on the site. Because listings follow free formats, most of the entries offer varying levels of detail.

The good thing about classified ad sites such as Craigslist is that they are mostly free and they have localized listings. The only setback is that these are not specifically designed for babysitter searches. They cannot guarantee the quality of the candidates that you will encounter through the site so follow-ups and research are important.

Free caregiver search

There are also websites such as NannyFlower that are designed for caregiver searches. This website currently serves the United States, Australia, Canada, and United Kingdom. You can streamline your search to candidates located in your area by indicating the city and state where you are based.

NannyFlower’s database contains basic babysitter information such as contact details, availability, skills, and expected rate. You can contact your potential sitter through the site. The only downside is that the site’s database is not as diverse in certain locations. Cities like New York may have numerous results for your search but if you are located in the suburbs or in other less-known cities, your choices might be too limited if you rely on this site alone.

Subscription-based babysitter sites

Then there are the sites that charge fees in exchange for access to their database. The fee usually covers a monthly subscription and can set you back by at least $5 to $10 every month should you sign up. The good thing about these websites is that their databases are larger so they can provide you with more choices regardless which city in the US you happen to be located.

SitterCity, for instance, boasts of a database that lists more than 150,000 caregivers from all over the country. The site also offers tutoring resources and childcare information for both parents and nannies. The sitters are screened carefully and it also offers a seven-day free trial in case you’re interested in its services.
