Testimonials

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 :-)
