Babysitter Reviews helps you find a nanny that is trustworthy, honest and committed to providing the highest level of childcare possible.

For parents who are looking for customized and personalized care for their children, hiring a nanny is the best childcare option. Children cared for by nannies receive more consistent care and more attention. For parents who work long or untraditional hours, hiring a nanny provides the ultimate in flexibility and can often be more cost-effective that other childcare arrangements.

When it comes to childcare, each family has different needs and expectations. There are live-in and live-out nannies and some nannies who care for children in their own homes. There are full time and part time nannies, certified and self-taught nannies, younger and older nannies, shared nannies and even male nannies.

At Babysitter Reviews, our nanny’s can help with a wide variety of your family’s needs. Our goal is to make the process of finding top notch care an enjoyable, stress-free experience by eliminating the time that is required by parents to recruit, pre-screen and schedule childcare. We help families find a nanny that they can trust to take excellent care of their children for a price that they can afford.

How to find a nanny:

Know your priorities
First, decide what you want. Talk to your partner about what your ideal nanny would be like. Do you want to find a nanny who is mature and experienced? Is a nanny with a degree in early childhood education your top choice? Do you want to find a nanny who will be responsible only for feeding, bathing, and providing transportation? Or do you want to find a nanny who will be more of a parenting partner?
Join Babysitter Reviews
Our website will allow you to search through pre-screened nannies in your area and you will also be able to see comments and reviews from other parents that have used before (or currently use them). This will allow you to get an idea on the type of references that a sitter has.  Additionally, you will find options for performing a background check on a potential babysitter. You will also be able to search for babysitters by zip code which will ensure that you find a nanny close to your home.
Talk to as many applicants as you can. Ask specific questions about their work experience and childrearing philosophies as well as personal interests, after-work activities, driving record, and background.
Once you’ve narrowed it down to a few good applicants, call their references – even if they’re from an agency. If you already did this as part of the prescreening process, feel free to call again and ask more detailed questions or for additional references.
Trial Run
Ask finalists to come to your home one at a time for a few days’ trial run. Pay each for her time and observe how she interacts with your child. There’s no better way to make a decision than to see for yourself how a nanny is on the job.
