…It's something we think about from the time our feet hit the Legos® on the floor, until after we've tucked the kids in at night. We know that the child care struggle is real, because we're parents too.
79% of families cancel plans at least once per month.
Even when we've found the right team of sitters to cover our family’s needs (no easy task), we spend too much time calling, texting, making ATM runs — just to schedule and pay the sitters we're already working with. And that's when everything is going smoothly!
We have kids and we love them, but we need time to be adults too.

All this hassle has a human cost. As parents, we have less freedom to take part in the things that fulfill us as adults. For sitters, lost income and lack of flexibility also mean fewer possibilities.
We connect a family with a nearby sitter every 9 seconds.
As the company that pioneered tech-enabled child care, we've come a long way since 2001. We’ve connected millions of families and sitters. We were the first to make online child care an employee benefit. And most recently, we launched an acclaimed on-demand app that’s changing the way parents work with their go-to sitters.
A lifesaver for busy parents.
