Job Description for Babysitter

A babysitter provides care to children while their parents or guardians are away. Babysitters largely work part time and care for only one or two children in a given week. They may work in their own home or in the home of the family for whom the service is provided; a babysitter called in to watch over children for a few hours in an evening normally works in the client's home. Sitters may also provide care for pre-kindergarten children during the day while parents work perform work in their home.
