Babysitters and nannies can be rated online by parents, sharing valuable information via Find A Babysitter. 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 about babysitters and nannies. Find A Babysitter believes in offering a fair and reasonable system that will serve all parents, nannies and babysitters on the site. Parents can post a rating (out of 4 stars) and make a specific comment about carers they have used. Babysitters and nannies 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. To do so, parents log onto their account page, go to the "Ratings I've Given" section and click the "remove rating" icon next to the sitter's name. The entire rating and reply will be deleted.
