Ideally, we would all find our babysitters by word of mouth, from friends we rely on or family members who know us and our children well. But all too often, friends only have a couple of go-to sitters, and we're hesitant to ask for their names. Or, once we've found a reliable childcare provider, we dread the day when she graduates from college or "outgrows" babysitting, knowing that will mean another exhaustive search for someone new.
But what if you had access to a sitter list filled with pre-screened candidates, who you could hand-pick based on the profiles provided, after reading reviews from families they've worked with?
Whitney Schickling and Karly Hart, founders of Our Sitter List Nashville, thought that would be just dreamy, so they decided to take matters in their own hands and make it happen.
Our Sitter List Nashville is the only babysitting resource in Nashville that personally interviews each sitter candidate. We also guarantee that each sitter has been background* checked and reference checked. Additionally, we encourage all of our babysitters to become CPR and First Aid Certified.
* Babysitters still in high school have not been background checked.
We ask all of our babysitters to the highlight the following on their profile:
If a babysitter cancels last minute, then she must notify us immediately and we will find a replacement sitter for you.
