Why hire a babysitter

In this section we look at what services babysitters typically provide, how they're different to other carers, and the many benefits your family can enjoy when hiring a babysitter.

When to hire a babysitter

How to find a good babysitter

Often the biggest challenge with hiring a babysitter is finding good candidates, to begin with. In this section, we reveal many secrets that you can use to attract the best local babysitters, we also explore alternatives to hiring babysitters that you may not have considered.

What makes a good babysitter

Finding a good babysitter is not an easy task, in this section, we highlight various qualities to look out for while you're gathering candidates for your open position. We also cover less commonly considered candidates such as male babysitters and answer commonly asked questions that parents have about them.

Babysitter interview tips

How you conduct your interview process is critical to identifying the most appropriate babysitter for your family. In this section, we run through a recommended babysitting interview format and provide tips and tricks that you can use to learn the most about your candidates. We also offer a huge list of good interview questions and how best to utilize them depending on your unique circumstances.

Babysitter pay

One of the most common questions parents have about babysitting is how much they should pay their sitter.

How to vet babysitting candidates
