Where to advertise to find a basitter

Article by Pieter West







Do you need to find a babysitter who can baby-sit for you on a regular basis?  Most parents, even those who consider themselves stay at home parents; will find themselves in need of a babysitter who can care for their children on a regular basis.  Sometimes the parent takes on an out of the home job.  For others it is because a babysitter is needed to spend time and take care of one child so that the parent can take the other child to regular lessons or activities.  Whatever the reason it is usually a lot easier to find babysitters to baby-sit for you on a regular basis than it is to line up several sitters to baby-sit for you once in a while.  Your first option, if you want to find a babysitter to baby-sit for you on a regular basis is to advertise at your local high schools and universities.  Students usually have more flexible schedules and will often work for lower wages than full time babysitters and nannies.  What’s more, a student is usually better able to take on a short term regular gig than a long term regular gig.  It is important, however, that you take steps to protect you and your family when you advertise openly to find babysitter.   Create a temporary e-mail address and use that as your point of contact.  This will help you do an initial screening of applicants without having to give out your personal information.Another option if you want to find a babysitter who can take on a regular babysitting job is to place advertisements online.  Online bulletin boards like Craigslist and Kajiji are full of ads that are posted by parents who are in need of a babysitter.  It is very important that you take steps to protect your family as well as yourself when you post ads online.  As with the ads you posted at the various schools, it is important that you protect your personal information for as long as possible before meeting potential applicants in person or introducing them to your children.  One of your best options if you need to find a babysitter on a regular basis is to work with a nanny placement or a babysitting placement agency.  These agencies typically work with adults who care for children on a full time basis, but it is possible to find a part time babysitter or nanny through them as well.  The biggest bonus to working with an agency is that the agency will usually have thoroughly screened its babysitters and nannies before they allow them to be placed with a family.  Of course, this does not mean that you shouldn’t check out the agency before you commit to working with it.Finding a babysitter for a regular babysitting gig doesn’t have to take a lot of work, it simply takes some time, patience and creativity. Take your time to interview and perform background checks on each potential babysitter and you will find that you can find a babysitter without too much trouble.
