Top Babysitter related questions

What kinds of tasks will a babysitter do?

A babysitter’s primary role is to care for children and look after their basic needs, like meals, hygiene, and settling for naps. Outside of that, if there’s time, your babysitter may help with chores like folding the washing, picking up toys, and even preparing dinner.

What skills are needed for babysitting?

Babysitters need to be reliable, good with children, patient, responsible, responsive, and caring. Ideally, they’ll have experience and qualifications in CPR, First Aid, and childcare or education.

What is the difference between a nanny and a babysitter?

A nanny offers a type of babysitting service that’s usually longer-term (for example, 3 days a week, ongoing). While babysitting usually refers to shorter periods of time or less regular childcare.

How do I find me babysitter I can trust?

The best way to find a babysitter you can rely on is to check their ratings and reviews. Look for comments like “on time”, “great with kids”, and “will hire again”.

How much should I pay my babysitter?

Do I need a specialist licence for babysitting?

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses for babysitting that may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
