ABSOLUTELY! Our babysitter years ago, when my youngest was that age and my oldest was 5, was all of NINE YEARS OLD. She was awesome - perhaps more responsible than most adults I know. That being said, my 16 year old has been babysitting since my 4 year old was born. I have left them alone at much younger ages. Yes, yes yes yes yes.
