How do I find a suitable babysitter?
Oudermatch shows a short description for each babysitter, a few personal details, and (when available) a photo. The babysitter says a little about themselves and indicates what sort of family they are looking for. On the basis of this, you can make a first selection and send an invitation to the babysitter or babysitters to meet and get to know them. Found a good match? Then you and the babysitter can make further arrangements.
Establishing a good relationship between parents and babysitters
When you've found the perfect babysitter that you want to hire via Oudermatch, it's incredibly important to establish a good relationship. Not only between the babysitter and the child/children but also between the babysitter and the parents.
Good communication with the chosen babysitter is important through the entire journey as it helps build up the trust.
Another great way to build up the trust is to see references from former employers, school teachers and other.
Always make your expectations clear to the babysitter regarding hours, pay and duties. Perhaps write it down and keep a copy each as it's easier to avoid misunderstandings this way.
Other childcare options
Oudermatch not only brings parents and babysitters together, but also connects parents with each other. Parents can help each other by occasionally babysitting for each other, by organising after-school care together, or by simply having their children play together.
