Filling the Gaps Between a Nanny and a Babysitter
Kids and Kaboodles Babysitting Membership Service offer professional nannies to accommodate your last-minute and short-term childcare needs. Our babysitting services are a little more customized than others. We offer a membership program that provides quality and engaging childcare while you enjoy a date night, manage school breaks and holidays, or simply need a break from your regular routine.
Our program provides your family access to our pre-screened, experienced, and qualified nannies that are filling in extra hours and want to connect with you.
We understand that many families enjoy the benefits of working with close relatives or recommended childcare from friends to watch their little ones, but you cannot always guarantee those options will be reliable or available. That is why Kids and Kaboodles offer a long list of committed babysitters available when you need them the most. Each member family receives access to 2-3 babysitting candidates to ensure they receive quality service and guaranteed placement.
