When I was growing up, babysitting was a very lucrative way for me to make money. Most of the girls I knew were also babysitting. I started watching neighborhood kids relatively young, I was around 11 when I would watch smaller children and be responsible for making them dinner as well as keeping the home clean. It seems these days most parents wouldn’t leave their 11 year old to care for themselves let alone be in charge of other children. Granted I could handle minor scrapes and boo boos, but I do have to admit I wouldn’t have been capable of handling anything more involved and that is still a problem parents face today. Who can you trust to take care of your child(ren), especially when they have specific behavioral or medical needs?
4sitters Babysitting Service
Sarah Schlicht, CEO and Founder of 4sitters, has a son with both behavioral and medical special needs. It was a constant challenge to find a caregiver that had specialized experience in caring for people like her son. She felt this was likely a problem for many people and became determined to design a childcare business that would fill this void. She developed 4sitters babysitting service to provide parents a database with extensive caregiver profiles complete with over 100 different searchable attributes. The 4sitters babysitting service is available to all families in the United States, though it is primarily focused on matching parents of children with disabilities with appropriate child care. Some of these disabilities can include ADHD, Asthma, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Type 1 Diabetes, and other medical, mental, and special needs diagnoses. Parents can pinpoint caregivers’ specialized backgrounds, certifications, and education in order to make an informed decision on which candidate to interview.
Navigating the 4sitters website is easy with several options to narrow down your search starting with location by zip code or within a certain number of miles. Search for a caregiver or alternatively post a babysitting job including any specific requirements and it will be shared with qualified caregivers, nannies, and babysitters fitting your needs. Parents are able to invite candidates to their posting and track the status of invitations and responses with a secure, internal messaging system. The advanced interview options available through 4Sitters is unrivaled. Customizable questions enable parents to thoroughly get to know each caregiver as they respond via video or messaging. Both members’ privacy is closely safeguarded throughout all steps involved.
Sign up is a breeze for both parents and caregivers. Stop by the 4sitters website for more information!
