Best websites for finding child careBetween holiday parties and New Year's Eve plans, it can be tough to secure a babysitter. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on websites that can help you find a vetted, reliable child care provider for any time of year.
[MUSIC] Wondersitter is a great website to find a trusted babysitter. What makes it stand out is that in order to work for the company, all the sitters go through a rigorous screening process, background checks, in person interviews and even a personality assessment. Parents are also able to enter extremely detailed information about their families to ensure the best match possible. Right now, Wondersitter only operates in a few cities, but check back often as the site is growing. Other reliable child care websites worth checking out that work in a similar fashion include urbansitter, sittercity and care.com. Finally, the neighborhood social media site Nextdoor can be a great resource to find a trusted babysitter. Search your area for a babysitter to see if the topic has been discussed in the past. Or post a listing asking for recommendations. It's a great way to find someone vetted by people who live nearby. In San Francisco I'm Kara Tsuboi, cnet.com for CBS News. [MUSIC]
