As a new mom, I am just so cautious with everything and everyone around my son. The thought of being away from my son for long periods of time while he is under the care of a complete stranger was completely frightening and nerve wrecking to say the least. I messaged and Carmen and she quickly arranged an in person interview.Carmen was the first sitter that stood out to me, her reviews from past families were incredible, and most importantly I was looking for someone who would engage with my toddler who is so eager to learn and explore. I CANNOT PUT INTO WORDS HOW GREAT CARMEN HAS BEEN FOR MY SON AND I. My sons development is INCREDIBLY ADVANCED, she does so many brain stimulating and fun activities with the children. She provides hourly updates of my sons day which I appreciate so much. It's comforting to be apart of my sons days without actually physically being present. We love Carmen!!!! I wish this review could be longer!!

Friendly Babysitter With A Great Personality

Avg response < 2 hrs
My name is Missy and I am great with kids. I graduated from The University of Michigan and majored in Psychology including taking many child development and early childhood education courses. I have a lot of experience working with kids ranging from newborns, toddlers, young children to preteen kids. The majority of the children I care for are located on Marco Island; however, if it is a good fit for both parties, I am happy to drive to the Naples area . My families I work for range from locals who live here permanently on the island as well as those who or are in town visiting and need the extra assistance. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to grow close and bond with the children I have cared for thus far. I am especially eager to reconnect with the children and families who come here for vacation and am always amazed to see how they have grown since I last saw them. Please feel free to contact me if you are in need of help!

FAQs for finding a babysitter

What is the going rate for babysitters on
The average rate for babysitters on as of October, 2020 is $13.75 per hour. This rate will fluctuate depending on your location, the babysitter's level of experience, and the number of children to be watched. Other factors that may also influence the rate include the need for additional babysitting duties, specialized care, and overnight care.
How do I find a babysitter for my kids?

Looking for a babysitter can feel like a daunting task. To make the process easier, you can start by outlining what you'd like from a candidate before starting your babysitter search. Think about the level of experience you wish them to have, if you want them to have any first-aid certifications, if you need them to handle additional duties such as driving kids around or helping with homework assignments, and how much you are willing to pay.

To start your search process on, start by creating an account and answering a few questions to find babysitters that match your needs. You will then have the option to either post a job that can be seen by our extensive pool of caregivers or search babysitters from the platform based on years of experience, hourly rate, availability, distance from your area, etc. After you have selected your candidates, you can schedule interviews, check references, request additional background checks, and hire the sitter who best meets the needs of your family.

What should I ask a babysitter during an interview?
In order to get to know if the candidate is a good fit, focus your interview questions around their previous experience, their babysitting style and personality, their previous training and skills, as well as any specific requirements to be performed on the job. It is very common to schedule a paid trial where you can be present while they care for your children. This is a great way to find out if the babysitter is a good match for your family and if your kids feel comfortable too.
