Finding the right sitter service can seem overwhelming, but the reward for a parent's effort is the assurance that your children are in the safe and capable hands of a great babysitter. Here are three steps to follow when looking to hire a babysitter for you.
1. First, take a quick look at some of the top online sites available.
Get a feel for how the site and service function for the parent.
2. Look for a number of sitters available in your area.
Although these sites have the largest selection of sitters, you may want to check out each site and pick the one that fits your individual needs. Some sites allow you to search by city or zip code for sitters before you ever sign up.

3. Look for the availability of reviews and background checks.
Even if you located a babysitting candidate for the first time and thought that he or she was going to be wonderful, make sure you can spend time reading online reviews and run a background check. Because not everyone is as great as they seem in their profile, a background check is an essential part of the best sitter services.
After looking over the available services, checking sitters available in your area, and making sure that you can get background checks, then just choose the service that seems to offer the best fit for you and sign up. You and your kids will be glad that you did!
