You can use to search for babysitters, housekeepers, tutors, and more! We all know how hard it is to find reliable, trustworthy day care. This site takes all of the guesswork and worry out of finding a day care provider.

My children are a little too old for me to use a babysitter, except for those occasions when I want (NEED) to get away for a little while. This is a great site and I wish I had discovered it back when I needed daily day care!

I did a search for day care providers in my area, and I came up with ALOT.

Here are some tips you should do when hiring a caregiver:

1. Do a background check on the caregiver that you hire. Definitely run a criminal background check. If the caregiver will be transporting the children or doing errands; you will also want to run a driving record.

2. Do your reference checks. When getting phone #'s on the references; we highly recommend you can call land lines - since you can track the land lines on who the # belongs to.

3. Make sure you spell out and have a detailed conversation on the expectations for the caregiver. Have the caregiver ask numerous questions as well. Communication is the best tool for a successful relationship.

4. Not sure what questions to ask the caregiver? Take advantage of the sample list of questions we have for registered members at 5. If you do not see the caregiver often; have a notepad where you can both make notes for a communication tool.
