Question: Free babysitting during meetings?

I was just elected president of our PTO. In the past we have had high school students babysit during meetings so more parents can attend. However, it got to the point that they wouldn't show up...very unreliable. Who do you use to provide child care during your meetings? Do you pay them?

You can also connect with college students, although we use high school students who have to do community service or would rather babysit than attend detention. The student has to report for duty with a signed slip from his/her school, a board member will sign the sheet for the number of hours rendered. High school and college students may have to do community service. What a better way to perform those services?
