I’m sure you’ve thought of the big names: Care.com, WhiteHouseNannies.com, etc.

But how do you find local babysitters that won’t charge an arm and a leg? Where are these secret parent sanity saving humans hiding?

Let me share our secret… your local high school.

Did you know that Madison, Marshall, McLean and Langley have career centers in the school? My husband, the genius that he is, sent an email to the career center specialist listed on the school websites with a job posting.

We included a job description, typical hours, number of kids, any requirements, etc and they posted it on the job board at the school. We got a great high school babysitter after reading through the kids who responded.

I’m sure this could also work for after school care, mother’s helper, local businesses looking for some extra support, etc.

I don’t want to post emails for individuals staff at the schools, but it’s really easy to find on the website:
