Need to find a babysitter in the Menifee area?
There's an online service called "sittercity" which provides a national directory of babysitters. You enter your zip code, and it shows you all the sitters in your area.
I ran a search for "92584" and it found 61 sitters, some of them in Menifee and Sun City, and others in Murrieta and Temecula.

How good are the sitters listed on sittercity?
Sittercity doesn't screen the sitters, however, they provide some unique tools that help you decide on a sitter before contacting them...
- Online Profile - there's a profile on each sitter, and the profiles are pretty extensive, showing you their location, education, religion, special skills, and so on
- Photograph - you can see a photo of the sitter
- Reviews - you can read reviews on each sitter, which are posted by parents who've hired them, though there are not many reviews
- Super Sitter Ranking - sittercity identifies sitters in the Top 20% based on their activity
It's probably better than just hiring someone out of Craigslist or from a sign posted on a telephone pole, in that you have some means of evaluating them first.
