UCSD Babysitter Resource

Interested in babysitting? Connect with parents who need babysitters.

UC San Diego's Work/ Life office maintains the UCSD Babysitting Resource Program where registered students can care for children of UCSD faculty, staff, or students.

Ways to use this resource

  • Register by completing your Babysitter Profile. You will be asked to log in with your PID.
  • View the parent job postings once you've registered, and contact a parent whose needs fit your background and availability.

Tips for sitters

  • Before you accept a job, find out what is expected of you and make sure you are comfortable with those expectations.
  • Be punctual, allowing extra time before the parents leave to get instructions and information you need.
  • Contact the parents immediately if you need to cancel due to an illness or emergency. 
  • Discuss payment directly with the parent. $10-15 per hour is the standard rate based on your experience and the number of children.
