10-step guide to find a babysitter

While looking for a babysitter, it is good to keep the following in mind.

Select and review your babysitter

Ask for their references and see who already recommend them on Sitly. Always set up an interview before you hire a babysitter. Before meeting in person, you can also conduct a phone interview or a video call. That way, you can find out if the babysitter / nanny is right for you.

Keep your personal information private

Don't leave your personal details, like your telephone number or address, in your profile description. Only provide these once you have had a conversation with someone with whom you want to set up an interview.

Contact us when you have doubts

Is someone asking for your personal details without having had a previous conversation, or is there something that you find odd in a chat? Please let us know by sending us a message and we’ll look into it.

Are parents, babysitters, or home daycare providers screened by Sitly?

You should look at Sitly as an online marketplace. Everyone can register or send messages. We don’t screen people beforehand, but of course we do check regularly if someone places inappropriate texts. It is up to parents, nannies, babysitters, or home daycare providers to make a selection of what they look for at Sitly. We do advise to carefully work on that selection, for example, to ask for references and plan an interview. This way, you’ll get the best picture of a potential nanny, babysitter, home daycare provider, or family.
