Are you looking for a nanny or regular help with your children? Searching for daycare or camps while your kids are out of school? Need a date night, but don’t have a go-to sitter? Whether you’re in the market for full-time child care or just want to find someone for an occasional sit, Care.com is a comprehensive and convenient online resource for finding caregivers for all kinds of circumstances.
With a mission to improve the lives of families and caregivers by helping them connect in a reliable and easy way, Care.com helps ease the stress of the child care search process. Their databases of nannies, babysitters, day care centers, and camps are searchable by many types of criteria, so you can find a caregiver just right for your specific needs.
More importantly, you can view caregiver profiles — from their philosophies on facilitating care to relevant experience to special skills and more — before talking to them, read reviews about other families’ experiences with them, and even request different levels of background checks. And if you’re booking a sitter, you can complete the whole process, credit card payment included, online (no need to worry about having cash or checks handy).
Care.com can also meet your needs beyond child care. If you’re looking for pet care, senior care, special needs care, or home care, Care.com will connect you with people and places to help with those situations.
And did I mention that it’s free to sign up? It’s simple to register, and once you do, you have access to a host of caregiving options.
Now, go plan that date night!
