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:
Recently joined Find a Babysitter & am very happy I did. Found a wonderful babysitter within 24 hours of posting my ad. Was pleasantly surprised that we found the right sitter so quickly as the hours we require care are very early in the morning. We actually had 3 positive replies within the first 24 hours. Even better, our babysitters sister has now joined your great site & is our back up babysitter. They are both reliable, friendly & fun. Thanks so much for making it so easy to find a babysitter. Now both my husband & I can start work early & for us that means more time together as a family of an evening :-)Jess (Melbourne, VIC) Read More
