Where to Find a Reliable Babysitter or Nanny in New York City
by: Doreen Lee

One of the best things about living in a city as big and bustling with activity as New York is that you can always get the help that you need when you want it. While some maintain that it is not exactly the best place to raise a kid, you might be surprised to find that searching for childcare services in the Metro isn’t as difficult as it seems. Looking for a reliable babysitter in New York City is simple considering that there are a lot of venues where you can start your search.

Know what you’re looking for

But the thing about the concept of a babysitter in New York City is that it may not be the same as the suburban version of the service. In New York City, professional families usually employ live-in nannies to take care of their children or send their kids to nursery school or day-care. If you’re searching for babysitting services, it’s important for you to understand how a nanny differs from a babysitter in New York City language.

For instance, a nanny is a full-time or semi-permanent employee who is trained to look after young kids. They can be employed by a family for just a few weeks while many last for years, or at least until the kids grow up to an age where they can be safely left on their own at home. A babysitter, on the other hand, is somebody who is contracted to watch over your kids for a few hours during the day.

Finding a babysitter in New York City

There are a number of sources where you can find a good babysitter in New York City. For instance, you can take your search online through the Internet-based classifieds such as Craigslist – New York. The online classifieds usually have childcare sections where you can post an opening for the service or find someone offering babysitting services.

Specialized websites for babysitters in New York City

There are also a lot of specialized websites such as SitterCity that feature a database of caregivers in a given location. The good thing about using babysitter websites is that they offer relevant information about candidates to help you narrow down your search. For instance, if there are certain skills that you require – such as basic housekeeping or first aid – these sites can trim down your search to the most likely candidates in their database according to your location. This is one good way to find a babysitter in New York City who lives just nearby, making it easier for you to schedule an interview to find out if he or she fits your preferences.

Go through parenting websites

Parenting and childcare websites may also help you with your search for a reliable babysitter in New York City. Sites such as Baby Guide maintain directories of nannies and babysitters in various locations to help you contact reputable agencies. Local colleges and college student databases can also serve as great sources of potential candidates. You can post your job opening, for instance, at College Quick Jobs and just wait for students from schools such as NYU and Columbia to send in their applications.
