Mama Needs a Babysitter!

"Mama Needs a Babysitter" is Tuesday June 5th from 7-9 pm at Bellies in Spruce Grove. Do you need an occasional babysitter? You’ve come to the right place! It’s an evening of babysitter-speed-dating. Come out to Bellies to meet great babysitters, shop, and enjoy a glass of wine and sweets!

Come meet great babysitters, all of which:
  • are experienced with child care and some hold safety certifications
  • are able to provide their own transportation (public transit included)
  • are willing to travel within Spruce Grove and area
  • are over 17 years of age
  • range from high school students to university students, child care workers or full-time nannies
  • want occasional sitting (particularly evening/weekend
What’s included:
- information sheet for each Babysitter in attendance
- ‘How to Hire a Babysitter’ article
- at-home ‘for the sitter’ reference sheet
- wine & sweet treats and a fun social night out with other moms
- face to face casual interviews with each sitter

Children are welcome! We understand that you’re trying to find a babysitter! Note however, that nanny service is not available at this event. There are typically between 5-10 babysitters in attendance.
What is NOT included:
- no pre-screening or reference checks
- Modern Mama assumes NO liability for hiring and working with any Babysitter met at the event
- no set wages were agreed upon, it is up to you and your babysitter to agree on an hourly rate. It was suggested to these women that the average rate for this area, based on experience, number of children and number of hours (and night vs. day) is $8-$12 per hour.
- Modern Mama is not an agency, we do not provide ongoing referrals to babysitters

Please Note: this event is about meeting sitters face to face, and it is just as important for the sitters to meet you, as it is for you to meet them. Please understand that we cannot send you sitter information if you are not attending in person.

Space is limited. Cost is $40 ($35 for Perks Cardholders). Register here!
