Compare the Top Babysitting Services and Nanny Agencies to Find a Babysitter that’s perfect for your family!
Have you ever wondered, “What’s the difference between these online services?” or “Which one is the best?” or perhaps “Which one is right for my family?”
Here are the main differences:
- Some offer many types of helpers including child care, senior care, pet sitters, tutors, housekeepers, and personal assistants while others strictly offer nannies or babysitters!
- Most offer different membership packages that range in price from about $29 – $199 depending on the length of time of your subscription and the benefits included.
- Some offer free comprehensive background checks and others offer only access to background checks that caregivers have run on themselves.
An online babysitting service is the perfect place to find a babysitter, a full-time nanny, and several other types of household aides. Babysitters and nannies usually don’t have to pay to be listed on most of these sites so many of them create an account on several different online babysitting services to increase their chances of finding a job. Therefore, you might actually see many of the same faces on each online agency’s site. Most of these services also allow you to search their database for free (although, most won’t allow you to contact any sitters until you purchase a membership).
Check out the comparison chart below for additional differences between services.
You should always try a free search before purchasing a membership on any online care service because while they all claim to offer “nationwide” services, they may not have any caregivers available in your area especially if you live in a small town away from any highly populated areas.
