Most states have laws against leaving children with someone who does not have enough time to spend with them. That is why professional babysitting services are so popular in Canada.

Types of child nanny services in Canada 

Some babysitters will offer to pick up your children at their home, kindergarten-like, and others will come to you for babysitting at home. The home should be safe and free of dangerous items that could harm your child or those of others. The people who will be watching your child should be properly licensed and properly qualified for the babysitting jobs in your area.

If you are considering only in-home nanny services, then the following options are available to you:

  • Hourly-rated babysitter - nanny can come to you every day for evening babysitting. It is important to find a babysitter who lives within a reasonable distance from your home. This will help to ensure that she can come whenever you have babysitting needed.
  • All-day babysitting - such a nanny can pick up your children from school, watching them until the evening, feed them and help with their homework.
  • Overnight babysitting - if you are invited to a party that you would like to go to without children, you can find an event babysitting. In that case, you should make sure that the person who comes to watch your children is actually who she says she is.
  • Vacation babysitting. During vacations and trips, children are often tired and require a lot of attention. To make sure your holidays go well for everyone, you can get a nanny with you for your vacation.
  • Live-in nanny this option will be the least stressful for you and your child since it is much easier to be calm with a person you know well and can rely on. She has constant access to all your belongings, so it is important to find a live-in nanny who is responsible and will take care of your children.

Babysitting rates

One of the main things you should consider before you decide to hire someone for your children are babysitting services prices and which skills you want the nanny has? You may have to pay a slightly higher rate if you need the holiday babysitting that usually provides for more than one day, but your kids will always be cared for. 

If you are only going to hire short-term babysitting for the afternoon and evening, you can usually get the babysitting prices for less than $20 per hour.

The next thing you want to do is comparing in-home babysitting rates in your area. On the Fee4Bee, there are many performers that provide babysitting day services so you can narrow your list down by contacting them. 

Once you find the babysitting profile of the nanny who offers a variety of options from the number of children to their age for instance babysitting a one-year-old, you can contact her to pinpoint some information. Ask her about any special offers she may have such as holiday babysitting, babysitting a defiant child, or having a babysitting certification. Such questions will help you get the most appropriate daily rate for babysitting.

It is also imperative that your babysitter understand your expectations, such as how many children will be in the home at one time. Since babysitting a threenager is a much more difficult task and your babysitting expenses are growing up.

In most regions, there are a lot of qualified babysitters available to provide 24/7 babysitting services. You may be required to pay an additional fee for a babysitting license, otherwise, you can always offer cash babysitting jobs for some temporary nanny.
