Find a Babysitter in Plano

Every now and then you might need to find a babysitter for your kids. Maybe you have a date night planned or just need to run a few errands without kids. Finding a babysitter doesn’t need to be stressful. Here are some helpful tips so you can find the right babysitter for your kids.

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.

Nextdoor.com: Check on nextdoor.com (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.

Care.com: Care.com 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.
