Consider us the “Uber” of babysitting services. Once you sign-up with us, and provide a credit card number; we will, at the conclusion of a babysitting shift, charge your card, and a receipt of services is sent via email to you. You no longer have to stop and get cash or write a check for babysitting. End of year statement of what families have spent through us for childcare for tax purposes is given upon request for a small fee.
We pay each and every babysitter higher then the average hourly rate for babysitting in order to attract the professional babysitters you will feel safe leaving your children with.
Oh my gosh! Here are our rates in simple and plain language that you can understand. They aren’t hidden, they’re straight forward, and there is absolutely no guessing what you will be charged by the agency for your childcare. There are no add-on fees unless you request a Family Assistant, and even then you get to choose what you want to pay extra for. We don’t charge retainer fees, our one-time fee is really a ONE TIME fee, and then you pay for the service as you utilize the service. If you don’t use the service you don’t get charged. We are a simple agency with you in mind.
