Make sure your kids get to class safely with Zūm. The brainchild of a mom who understands the challenge of continuing a career whilst having young kids to look after, this site provides a ‘ride and care’ service, including carpools, with an add-on of up to 2 hours of childcare before or after school.
Word-of-mouth is the most trusted recommendation, especially when it comes to finding babysitters. With just a few clicks, you’ll get sight of the top-rated caregivers in your neighborhood, whether you need a sitter for date night or a nanny to provide childcare while you’re at work.
Over 95% of U.S. neighborhoods have used this babysitter site to find childcare. In 3 simple clicks you could find a sitter for your hot date or to keep an eye on the kids after school – just enter what you’re looking for and Sittercity will hook you up with profiles of suitable caregivers.
If you’re willing to return the favor, join a babysitting cooperative – you’ll trade childcare with other parents in your neighborhood, so you won’t have to feel guilty about asking Granny to watch the kids again. And if your family isn’t on hand to help out, you could save hundreds of dollars on sitters.
There are apps to book everything from restaurants to cabs, so why not childcare? Connecting caregivers looking for work with overworked parents, you can book and pay for a sitter in seconds. They’ll even have access to your emergency contacts, your child’s dietary needs and more with a touch of a button through the app.
This site may look basic, but the service it provides is far from it – for a one-off cost, you can run a background check on a babysitter or nanny before you offer them a job, so you can be reassured that your kids are getting the best care.
