I am looking to find a babysitter that will watch my two boys. I dont know where to look. I know my church work etc however I have had no luck with that. I was wondering if there is a website that has babysitter in local areas that are safe.

where do you live? I found our nanny/babysitter through referrals and interviewed a few people. I would not mine passing their names along to you if you are in the NYC area.

I too am starting the search for a sitter, well actually I guess mine would fall under as being a nanny or caregiver b/c I would need 1 during the day while at work. I'm very skeptical about having an individual watch my children when it's not done in a daycare/school. But I need help knowing where to start looking as well because I would like for the person to watch my 2 little ones at my house. So far I've started looking on the websites nannies4hire.com and care4hire.com but I haven't really started reading the bios on some of the people on there.

Child Care Resource and Referral..It is through the Dept of Economic Security so all babysitters and daycares are moitored by the state. This way you can be sure they are safe and clean etc.

Have you tried a local college or asked other moms who they may use. Do you have a local red cross near you? My daughter just took a course at one and they may be able to help.
