You can find the perfect fit for your family on Babysitting Barter and Kidz Entertainment. According to a recent press release, Babysitting Barter offers services that connect parents online with trustworthy sitters, all the while, supporting local businesses.

With Babysitting Barter, parents are able to form cooperatives where they watch each other’s children as well as schedule and trade babysitting with friends and family. They can also connect with local paid sitters through Trustworthy Ties. The site guarantees more money to sitters than any other opportunity due to the viral economy created on the site. The sitters can earn a Barter Bonus on top of the money paid to them by parents. The bonus is redeemable for cash, gift cards and coupons.
The group supports local business with their free Event Calendar. Babysitters post their availability for local events allowing parents to book them with one click and send customers to local businesses. They also feature Barter Business Network, where local restaurants, service industries and retail stores offer deeply discounted coupons at no charge to the business.
