Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

findababysitter.com - anybody used this? Are they ok?

I've been looking for an occasional babysitter/daytime care for my DS during the day in London, where I visit occasionally. I have rather specific needs (language!) and this website can search by people who can speak certain languages.

What is this website? Is it a good website, safe etc? I can't find out much about it! confused*

*should add, I've never needed to find a babysitter/cm through any formal channels before as I live near my large family. So my confusion could be (is!) down to ignorance.

I have used it a number of times. It was recommended to me on here when I was first looking for a part time nanny.

I have had three different nannies from there. All fine. The part time job does not attract people who stick around for long periods though, hence us being on nanny number three. But this one is excellent and because she has another job on the days she is not with me, I think she will stay longer.

Oh, that's great! Thanks!
My un-registered search has brought up some promising results, and might work out for us - there are plenty of agencies who can get me a nanny, but I'd only need someone every 6 weeks, and that's trickier... But this looks possible. smile
