I need a new part-time nanny/ babysitter and am feeling rather depressed at the craigslist offerings. I have posted at Wash U and Fontbonne, but am feeling like maybe there's somewhere that I'm not looking? We live near Wash U, and my only experience w an UMSL student who lived in West County was a disaster, so I'm looking for someone closer to home.

Ideas of where to look?
thanks!

I have an amazing sitter I found on craigslist. I didn't have luck with any other resources for finding sitters.

Try posting an ad on craigslist instead of purusing others ads. My sister had more replies than she needed, one of them ended up being a preschool teacher at one of her daughter's schools and she was GREAT!
