Saturday, October 23, 2010 Review and Giveaway!

As a new mom, or even as a an experienced one, it can be difficult to find or trust a babysitter. There are more and more resources today to help you find a reliable babysitter that you can trust with your child.  A new resource I came across is! is a great place to find a babysitter or nanny, or get clients if you are one!  I love that you can run background checks on potential caregivers! This can help to give any parent peace of mind of knowing the recorded history of the person that is going to be watching their child.  Their Nanny Services allow you to find a nanny that will fit your needs, whether it is part time or full time! They also can help nannies find Nanny Jobs  by showing potential clients that they are a trustworthy nanny.  They are the ultimate Nanny Agency! And if you aren't looking to be a full time nanny, can help you get Babysitting Jobs!


Our Mission

If you're looking for a safe and easy way to find the right nanny or babysitter, you've come to the right place. At it is our mission to help families and individuals find the best nannies and babysitters.
Not too long ago, my husband and I were faced with the challenge of finding a trustworthy, responsible, and loving nanny for our then 3-month old son when I went back to work after maternity leave. Fortunately, we were lucky to find the perfect nanny, but the process wasn't easy. We understand your needs, concerns, and fears, because we have been in your shoes.
This experience has prompted us to found We have put a great  amount of effort into making the site as easy, safe, and secure as possible in order to help you successfully find the best nanny or babysitter for your family.

Our Philosophy

At, we don't cut corners. We believe that conducting an in-depth nanny or babysitter review process is an essential part of your search. That's why we personally review each and every nanny and babysitter that joins our site.

We have done extensive research on the best background check options on the market and are able to offer our users a Best-in-Class Background Check process.
