Just last week, I noticed that a mom posted on Facebook that she was looking for a part-time babysitter to receive her children after school, do homework, fix a snack and play with her children. I'm sure she's not alone with this request, so I wanted to share this with you.
A few years ago, I registered with SitterCity.com to help in my search for local sitters. At the time, we didn't have family nearby to help with childcare, with the exceptions of weekends, so this came in handy.
Currently, we use our teen neighbors to watch the children. However, back then we were very fortunate to find a few reliable sitters using www.SitterCity.com. Two of the sitters we hired were graduate students living in nearby Hempstead and another sitter lived right here in Valley Stream. One young lady we still utilize to this day when our teen sitters are busy with school work and activities.
