Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jun 14, 2020 7:42:00 AM

What makes a good babysitter? We all ask ourselves that, and being an agency that hires babysitters I am always looking for key elements that make a good babysitter. Everyone you interview will say they just love children but you need to know WHY they love children. As we all know children are lovable and difficult at the same time. We love them and they have the innate ability to push our buttons. Babysitters are no longer what they used to be. We want them to tutor, transport, teach, organize, and engage with our children while keeping our homes tidy. Here are some qualities I look for when interviewing and honed in on after 9 years of hiring babysitters.

Now that you have children you need to choose childcare and you aren't quite sure how to do that.

7 great coronavirus dates

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on May 8, 2020 10:00:22 AM

You May be at home but you can take time away from the kids!

Oh yeah the Coronavirus is here and it looks like it will be here for awhile but your relationship with your partner need not be sacrificed. You need time away from the kids probably now more than ever. The kids are always home, they are home for school, you're home with them working, they can't have physical plat-dates and you're organizing virtual play-dates, you're in charge of keeping them educated and entertained all the while your missing your partner besides just at bedtime.

So here are some things to consider BEFORE you schedule a babysitter for your children during this time of caution.

The Babysitter Witching Hour

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jan 24, 2020 3:04:47 PM

  The wolves are howling, there is a stillness in the air that is palpable, you can feel a terror in your bones that, to your logical mind, seems incongruous and unreasonable with reality.
