Babysitters and nannies can be rated online by parents. Carers can also post replies to the ratings. This builds trust on the site and helps great carers find more work - as they gather positive ratings. Here are further details explaining the system:
Find A Babysitter has designed a ratings system to allow the Find A Babysitter community to share feedback with each other. Find A Babysitter believes in offering a fair and reasonable system that will serve all parents and babysitters on the site. Parents can post a rating (out of 4 stars) and make a specific comment about sitters they have used. Sitters are notified of the rating and are able to post a reply online. Parents are also able to remove a rating if they choose to.
Leaving a rating (parents):
To leave a rating, parents simply log on to the Find A Babysitter site by using their email and password. This will open their account page with a list of sitters they have sent messages to. Click on the sitter's name and this will open a profile. At the bottom of the profile is a "Rate Carer" link. Parents click this link and leave feedback. We ask that the feedback comments relate specifically to the babysitter's job performance.
Reply to a rating (babysitters):
Sitters will be notified by email that a rating has been left for them. To read the rating, sitters log onto their Find A Babysitter account using their email and password. Sitters go to the section titled "My Reviews" at the bottom of the account page. Click the 'edit response' button, then enter a reply. We ask that the reply responds directly to the comments made by the parent.
Removing a rating:
A rating can be removed by the parent who wrote it. The entire rating and reply will be deleted.
Find A Babysitter's role:
Very easy to use. All the girls I contacted got back to me in record time, and I have found a lovely girl. The kids are so pleased with her too!Jenny (Aspendale, VIC) Read More
