“The Barnard Babysitting Service, founded in 1965, links student babysitters with New York City families for one-evening or weekly jobs and even opportunities to accompany a family on vacation. The agency has about 1500 registered employees and over 2500 clients looking for sitters….Parents only need to pay a $25 annual fee and get a note from the family’s pediatrician to list babysitting opportunities with the service. Because of security reasons, the sign-up system is not online. Instead, sitters sign up for jobs in binders located in the agency’s office, which is next to Barnard’s Office of Career Development Center in Elliott Hall.” (Pandolfi, Columbia Spectator 11/14/06)
