Who are our Sitters & Drivers? 

Our Sitters & Drivers are not your average babysitters. We’ve picked the best: warm and friendly babysitters, nannies, and parents with years of experience.

They passed our KangaDo Check with flying colors: extensive in-person interviews and trainings, reference and background checks. Background checks are comprehensive, from criminal searches from multiple counties and databases, to DMV checks for drivers. A few are even founder-tested, having babysat and driven Sara’s two boys!

Stay tuned – meet our amazing Sitters & Drivers in our next blog post!
