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.
