Post How to Find a Babysitter or a Nanny in San Diego
by: Doreen Lee

While you love your children and you want to always be there to make sure that they are safe, you still need to get out of the house either to work or to take some time off from your parenting duties. You have to find a reliable babysitter in San Diego to look after your kids while you’re away. But because the relationship between a child and a babysitter or nanny tends to be intermittent, it can be difficult to find a suitable caregiver in your neighborhood.

Babysitters in your local community

You do have a lot of options concerning your search. There are a lot of online and offline channels where you can look for potential babysitters in San Diego who can attend to the needs of your children and keep them safe during the days when you cannot be with them.

For instance, within your neighborhood are dozens of teenagers who are looking to earn some extra spending money through babysitting. If your children are of school age, having a teenager look after them for an afternoon wouldn’t hurt. You can post your openings through the local community bulletin board, if you have one, or you can go through the job listings board in your local high school.

Search through a local daycare

But this can be a problem if you’re new to the neighborhood and you haven’t been introduced to a lot of people. If this is the case, you can go to your local daycare center. The facility may be able to refer you to babysitters or nannies in San Diego who might be interested in offering their services. If your child goes to daycare or a local kids’ organization, you can ask other parents for referrals to good caregivers to help with your search.

Ask family and friends

You can also check with your friends or work colleagues who live nearby for referrals. You may have friends who have teenage children who want to babysit or who know someone who might be willing to do so. You may even consider trading sitting duties with somebody who knows a qualified babysitter in San Diego.

Babysitting cooperatives

Another source of potential candidates for a reliable babysitter in San Diego is a babysitting cooperative. These coops are composed of parents who take turns in babysitting for one another. You can join a babysitter co-op in your community if your neighborhood does have one. Again, you want to check with the other parents in your community if they are part of one. Some cooperatives are formalized and have regulated systems for the exchange of duties. Smaller co-ops, however, are more loosely organized.

Additional guidelines for choosing caregivers

There are a lot of venues where you can find a reliable babysitter in San Diego but to make sure that you’re making the right choice, it always helps to make the most of every interview to get to know your candidates. You want to observe them with your kids. Don’t forget to contact references to ensure the caregiver’s credibility.
