Ask your Friends: The best place to find a babysitter is by asking your friends. Maybe they have an older daughter that babysits or maybe they have a great babysitter they use themselves. Having someone you know and trust is important. Check on (a neighborhood website). There are tons of babysitters that neighbors have used and they will probably live by you, which is very nice.

Ask other Plano Moms: Check out PlanoMoms talk for referrals or ideas on the right babysitter. It will be good to make a list of their names and numbers that they suggest. is a site designed to help you find the best caregiver in your area. They offer many services including nannies, babysitting, and even in-home care for children.

Ask Teachers: If you have a child in pre-school or even elementary school it doesn’t hurt to ask if they babysit. I know so many teachers that babysit in evenings and weekends for extra money.

Once you get a list of names, start a running list of questions you will want to ask. Sittercity has a great checklist to help you get started with some essential questions.  I also suggest having the person out to your home to meet your kids and see if it will be a good fit for your family.
