It is not too late to find a quality babysitter for New Year’s Eve. We’ve heard from families that they are celebrating in number of ways and working with a nationwide service like Sitters.com helps them to maximize their time and resources.

Many families get through the holidays only to have New Year’s Eve sneak up on them. The leading nationwide care provider site Sitters.com sees a surge of traffic during the last few days of the year, with parents looking for last minute babysitters for New Year’s Eve.

“It is not too late to find a quality babysitter for New Year’s Eve,” said Sitters.com CEO Mike Cravens. “We’ve heard from families that they are celebrating in number of ways and working with a nationwide service like Sitters.com helps them to maximize their time and resources. Many parents still plan to make New Year’s Eve a date night. Whatever a family has planned, we make finding quality babysitters and care providers simple and safe.”

Sitters.com has some easy tips to help families plan their New Year’s Eve celebrations:

Tip #1 - Take the stress out of last minute planning. While many couples plan ahead and traditionally make New Year’s Eve a couple’s date night, many will need to find a last minute solution for childcare. The Sitters.com site offers unlimited nationwide access to babysitters and recommends that families post a job listing for last minute plans no later than December 30th.

Tip #2 - Enjoy peace of mind while traveling out of town. A recent survey by AAA notes that U.S. travel during the Christmas and New Year holiday weekends will rise 3.8 percent from last year, the first gain in three years and the biggest increase for any holiday in 2009. About 87.7 million travelers, or 28 percent of the population, will travel 50 miles or more away from home this year*. Families can secure an out of town provider in advance by using Sitters.com, which provides access to comprehensive profiles with references, reviews, free access to background checks, ratings, photos, videos, availability schedules, training and certifications.

Tip #3 - Team up with neighbors. Increasingly, families and neighbors are interested in pooling their resources, especially during the holidays when the trend is for families to host multi-generational events and parties. In addition to its job postings to reach care providers directly, Sitters.com now offers Care Share, a social network for families interested in sharing and exchanging care services. Care Share™ also allows families to connect to find pet care, senior care, housekeepers, and tutors.
