Via The Village Membership
- Customizable search
- Member map view
- Member notifications
- Unlimited direct messaging
- Nanny or share contract
Searching by word-of-mouth or social media is time consuming and hit-or-miss. Creating a profile captures the necessary information from you and potential nearby matches. You can then immediately use filters to customize your search for a nanny, share family, even other nearby families looking for playdate meetups, kiddie carpooling, childcare exchanges and new neighborhood friendships.
Location-location-location. It is key when building your village and for nanny sharing. If you don’t find your share family match near your home, try searching along your route to work or near your place of employment. Our map view provides you a birds-eye-view of where members are located. But don’t worry, for the safety of our members, we only indicate the general vicinity rather than pin-pointing a home.
We get it! You are a busy parent who might not have time to perform a search everyday so we keep you posted on member activity. Your member activity feed shows real time updates on when a new member joins or updates their profile to match your profile status or networking interests. We’ll even send you a daily email summary! You can edit your profile or email preference at any time.
Unlimited Direct Messaging
Other childcare platforms will force you to “upgrade” to contact other members. We don’t think it is fair to make you pay to construct a message to someone who may or may not be able to message you back depending on whether or not they have “upgraded”. We do not charge our members to message, rather encourage you to reach out to others to build your village!
Nanny & Nanny Share Contracts
Communication makes or breaks your nanny/employer and nanny share relationships. Nanny work agreements or contracts ensure you cover your bases and detail out your agreements. Putting things in writing can prevent conflict and helps you to swiftly remedy it should it arise. We save you the hassle of compiling one yourself, download and edit yourself.
