I am a mother of 3 kids, age 2,4,10. I need babysitter to take care of my kids for 1-2 hours during the weekend, so that I can run other errands. But it seems that babysitters typically look for more work (money) than 1-2hrs ($30)/job (with typical rate of $15/hr). I am willing to pay $30 to $60 per hour if the babysitter can teach the kids music, dance, gym, drawing or other arts and can involve all three of my kids.

That person has to have experience with this kind of music/art education and be willing to come to our house to teach. How can I find this kind of teacher? Do I post on craigslist? I have been posting at sittercity.com for babysitter service. I see most applicants are 18-20 yr old high school graduates who study/work part time. I hope to connect with real music teachers who work with young kids to babysit for us. Is this impossible to find? I hope to hear how other parents find good babysitters and any good arrangements you made. By the way, I live in peninsula, bay area. Thanks
