Free for babysitters

The Babysits platform is completely free for babysitters. They can create a profile, contact parents, and plan appointments.

Affordable for parents

We ask parents and agencies a fee to contact babysitters and plan appointments. Parents can create an account and post a babysitting job for free. However, to connect with childcare providers, parents and agencies need to upgrade their account to premium.

Babysits Premium Subscription

Upgrading to premium gives parents the ability to contact babysitters and plan appointments. The premium service is a recurring monthly subscription. As a parent, you upgrade when ready to contact and cancel once you find the ideal babysitter.

What should I pay the babysitter?

Babysits is not an agency and thus wages are negotiated directly with the childcare provider. We allow parents and childcare providers to indicate average hourly prices for their babysitting appointments. However, this is not a fixed rate and you are always able to negotiate. Prices will vary depending on the number of children and the level of care required.
