    Great article and a true need if you don’t live near family! We also are part of babysitting co-op. You sit for others and get points and when others watch your kids, points get deducted. Great system and free! Contact me if you want the spreadsheet and more details!

      I just created a phone app named uSit iSit, to help automate the tedious parts of a co-op — tracking sits, schedules and points. And communicating sit requests and responses just requires one tap. Plus, it eliminates the risk of strangers in your co-op. Maybe you’ll find it very useful.

        Sounds cool! Can you send me a link to the app? @ontargetcoach

    You don’t necessarily need to advertise in the college paper to find babysitters at a college. You should call your local college and find out if they keep a babysitters’ list. My college did – curated every semester with only students who put their name on the list, with their majors, their availabilities etc. It will connect you directly with the students who already want to babysit.
