babysitter referral service?

with on SitterTime.com.

Q. What if I want a
particular sitter for say, Saturday night? Can I select which sitter
A. Check your SitterTime
calendar for Saturday. All available and busy sitters are shown.
If your favorite sitter shows available, just click to reserve.
If he/she does not show as busy, call them on the phone. If they
then say they can, you've got it, and make sure they mark themselves
as busy for that day. If they can't, they should also mark
themselves as busy, and you'll have to get someone else. Select
from another available sitter, submit a request, or call all the
non-busy sitters on your list. Any of these non-busy sitters that
can't sit for you should mark themselves as busy for that day.
Q. I just registered with
SitterTime. How do I get my babysitters signed up with me?
A. If your sitters are
already signed up with SitterTime.com, simply ask them for their
user names. If they are not already signed up, ask them to do so

done, you and your sitters can arrange your babysitting dates

for our child to use to arrange babysitting dates?

information we have that is unique to your child is his/hers email
address, which we will not release to anyone without a court order.

with now. It is up to you, the babysitter's parents, to insure
the safety of your child while babysitting, just as it is without
