Are you a babysitter looking for some new jobs? You’ve come to the right place! Join Sittercity for free and start connecting with local families looking for babysitters like you. Do you have special skills like CPR or first aid training, or experience babysitting children in specific age ranges such as newborns and toddlers? Be sure to list them on your profile! Families also regularly search for babysitters who are also willing to do household duties such as cooking and cleaning, so if you have those skills be sure to list them as well. Adding a background check to your babysitter profile is also a great way to increase your chances of connecting with a family.

What does being a babysitter mean? Even though babysitters and nannies both watch kids, a babysitter is usually used for occasional one-off events such as a date night, whereas a nanny often has a full-time schedule with a family. How much should you charge as a babysitter? The average hourly rate varies from state to state. Look up your state on Sittercity’s rate calculator.

Many babysitters find their babysitting jobs through friends of friends or family. When you have to look outside of your personal network, Sittercity is dedicated to improving your search for the best babysitting jobs.

Look through our job posts and find families in need of babysitters in your area — and you can narrow your search based on location and other factors. Be sure to also review our Safety for Sitters page to keep safe while you search.
