OHA Babysitting and Nanny Referral Service

The OHA welcomes enquiries from Haileybury families who are in need of child-minding services.  Do you need a babysitter to look after your children on the odd occasion, or perhaps you're in need of a regular Nanny for after-school pickups?

The OHA provides a referral service to introduce you to young Old Haileyburians who have recently graduated, who may wish to offer babysitting services.  The OHA provides the connection between the family and the potential babysitter.  All negotiations and arrangements are to be conducted directly between the potential sitter and family.
