Finding a caregiver for your kids can make life so much easier. But finding one that’s reliable, trustworthy, and well-experienced can be stressful and sometimes downright impossible. Luckily Metro Detroit has fantastic resources, access to local agencies, and support groups to help families find the perfect match. Whether you’re looking for a part-time nanny, a live-in Au Pair, or just need a babysitter for an upcoming date night, these local resources will help get the ball rolling.



Ask Around
Often times friends, family members, and neighbors can be your most trusted and reliable resource for finding an excellent babysitter. Ask around, and you may be surprised how easy it is to find someone your family loves.

Free inquires can be posted on your neighborhood’s Nextdoor page or a local community Facebook Moms Group. I’ve personally found this to be tremendously helpful and have found top-notch, highly recommended caregivers using this method.
