Hacking Child Care

There are several sites that help parents find a nanny, like care.com, sittercity.com, or your local nanny placement agency. These services are great for setting up child care, but there is a growing number of parents who want to share their nanny with a family (or two).

You can imagine why this would be extremely useful (i.e., split costs, lessen commute, etc). It's a win-win (winning!) because the families get exceptional child care for half the cost, and the nanny gets paid a few bucks more a hour. The challenge is finding a family can be difficult, especially if you want parents who live nearby and share your schedule. Wouldn't it be awesome if you could just go to a site and set-up a nanny share in seconds?

Try Pareday.com if you want to find a family and share a nanny. It's simple and to the point.

Pareday helps parents share a nanny, while hacking child care to be more personalized and cost-effective. My wife and I have been using Pareday to find a family and within a week, met with a family 10 minutes away from our house. We simply signed up, posted what we were looking for, and Pareday told us who was nearby based on our zip code.

Some of the features include:

  • Shows distance between you and other families using your zip code.
  • Send a nanny share request and a message intro.
  • Email alerts matching families to your start date, schedule, and minutes away from you.
