Our school had a policy. I support it. I think it can lead to a conflict of interest, lead to favoritism, or some negative feelings. I think it opens a whole can of worms, so I support the policy.
The teachers often babysat AFTER the families were done with the school, and many babysat for other families. They never lacked for side work if they needed it.
Local colleges are good sources for babysitters, and I have heard some good things about care.com and sittercity.com. I am going to investigate one of those this summer...we need a few back-ups to my sister.
