FAQs

Q?

Can our babysitter come the day before to become acquainted with the children?

A.

Unfortunately, no.  The babysitters are quite busy during the summer time and I can not ask them to jeopardize a full night of work.  An alternative option if you would like extra time to spend acclimating your children with the babysitter is to schedule an earlier start time.

Q?

Do we care for children with special needs and learning disabilities?

A.

Yes, please call to give extra information about your child so I can place a babysitter that is well suited to care for them. 

Q?

How do you find your sitters?

A.

We have thankfully never had to advertise since the service was started 11 years ago.  We are very thankful to have had word of mouth from great babysitters telling their friends, as well as many girls who come back year after year.

Q?

Do you do background checks?

A.

Yes, we do a background check to ensure there has been zero instances of abuse or neglect against children or vulnerable adults.

Q?

Do you babysit sick children?

A.

NO.  Our babysitters are around so many children and will lose work if they contract any illness while babysitting sick kids.

Q?

What policies do you have?

A.

We have a 4hr minimum as well as a 24hr cancellation policy to protect the babysitters, their time and commitment to work for you.

Q?

Do you have a daycare center?

A.

We do not operate a facility, all babysitting takes place at the location or residence that you are staying.

Q?

Can the babysitters drive, pick up, or take the children to activities?

A.

Yes.  Please specify what exactly you are looking for when you make your reservation so I can place an appropriate babysitter that has a kid friendly car.  If your child requires a carseat you will be required to install it for liability purposes.

Q?

Can the babysitter take the children skiing/swimming?

A.

Yes.  Please specify what exactly you are looking for when you make the reservation so I can place an appropriate babysitter, comfortable in participating in such activities.
