Babysitting

Babysitter Listing

Our babysitter listing contains babysitters who are available to babysit in Toronto and Peel Region. The babysitters, who are University of Toronto students or the partner/spouse of a student, have a wide array of training and experience with children and child care. The Babysitter Listing has been created to assist staff, faculty, and student parents in finding casual child care.

To access a directory of available babysitters please email us with your U of T student or personnel number. Once we verify your status with the University, we will send you a password.

A good conversation can make a great impression, but you should still consider checking references before hiring a babysitter. See this article by Canadian Nanny to help you conduct a thorough reference check.
