5 Easy Babysitting Flyers

Updated on June 29, 2014

Flyer templates are a babysitter's best friend...

Looking for a babysitting flyer or template design? You've come to the right place. These flyers are easy to customize and will help promote your services and credentials.

What to include on your flyer?

~ Your contact info: email address, phone number or both. For privacy reasons, you may want to include just your first name with that info, especially if you're a kid/teen. You may even want to set up a (free) gmail account just for email responses to your flyer, so you don't have to give out your main email address.

~ What ages you're willing to babysit for. For instance, if you don't feel confident changing diapers, you might say "ages 4 and up."

~ What hourly pay you will work for. This will depend on "market rates" in your area, so if you're just starting out, you might want to ask friends and relatives with more experience what they charge per hour. In general, an adult or college-age babysitter can demand a bit more cash than a high schooler, who in turn can demand a bit more than a middle schooler. (Tip: Check this site for going rates in your area.)

~ A note about credentials or references. For instance, if you've completed the Red Cross babysitting course, you could say "Red Cross certified babysitter." If you've had plenty of experiencing watching children, say "Lots of experience" or state how many years you've been at it. And it's always a good idea to say "References on request" -- if you're new to babysitting and have no employer references, you can provide character references, such as adult friends of your family who have known you for a long time. (Be sure to ask them first!)

A peacfully pastel way to advertise your services. (Tip: The graphics here imply you'll watch babies, so if you don't do diapers, this template probably isn't the template for you.)

Wow! A printable collection...

This is my favorite of the collection of 16 free printable babysitting flyers offered by the folks at hloom.com, but the others are cute, too. Bonus: The set includes several designs appropriate for guy babysitters--something that can be hard to find.

~~ break the ice ~~

If you're just starting out with a new family, it can help to bring an "icebreaker" toy or activity that you can do with the kids when you first arrive, to ease their nerves or just set a positive tone. Pick something that will be fun for a range of ages and can be used again & again .... like this :) And ps -- whether they say so or not, many parents will appreciate that you've brought something non-electronic.

Did you find a babysitting flyer to meet your needs? Best wishes & best of luck! Take good care of those kids :)

      A babysitting flyer with tear off is a good idea. Are those tear-offs meant for potential clients to get one and contact you if they need someone to take care of their kids?
