    would you be able to say: "je garde une petite fille" if you were talking about babysitting in the present tense and trying to say i look after a little girl? I dont know what is correct to use instead of je garde which i think is I keep??

    i think that's fine because the dictionary has the verb 'garder under babysit.

    Yes, you can say that (in context). Another acceptable (depending on how hardcore you are) way of saying it could be something like "j'ai fait du baby-sitting hier. Je gardais une petite fille"

    C'est a toi, comme on dit en France!
