How do you find a babysitter that you can trust?

“Just hire a babysitter”

If you’re a parent, you’ve almost certainly heard this from your friends in the lead up to any social occasion. Well that is easier said than done.

You can’t always rely on friends and family to look after your kids – sadly they have social lives too (very inconsiderate of them!). When your go-to sitters aren’t an option, finding someone who meets your standards and is available can be tough. The search alone can take up much of your valuable time.

When parents are in search of a babysitter, the top 5 qualities are:

  • Previous experience
  • Genuine interest in children
  • Cost
  • Availability
  • Own transport

And finally, the most sought after quality – someone who is trustworthy.

So the question remains, how do you find babysitters you can trust to look after your kids?

Fear not, CanYa is here to solve all of your babysitter needs!
