Yes, Another Childcare App; New App Focuses on Nannies, Babysitters, and Au Pairs

While child trackers measuring everything from baby’s head circumference to sleep percentile abound, no existing app focuses on the childcare provider. Babysitting Pro is an event tracker and client organizer rolled into one, streamlining the communication between parents and caregivers,

In an app market that's saturated with mommy-products, Babysitting Pro, the definitive just-released childcare activity logger, is a standout. Since in nearly 60% of households with children, both spouses are employed (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/famee.nr0.htm), having responsible, accountable childcare is a must, given today’s economic reality.

Babysitting Pro (http://www.babysittingpro.com) was conceived by a working mom who was frustrated that her one-year-old son’s loving, conscientious babysitter could never seem to remember what time he had woken up from his nap.

It’s a small detail, but parents and caregivers alike know that these details can determine the course of the day for the entire family. Babysitting Pro provides caregivers with a simple, intuitive interface to track their charges’ day, easily keeping parents in the loop. Once the babysitter or nanny installs the app, he or she can communicate with the parents via text or email, with no need for multiple users to buy the app.

The app includes a client organizer for storing details like clients’ addresses, hourly rates, and children’s birthdays, allergies and bedtimes.

The core of the app is session-based. Caregivers can create timed sessions and record events in the children’s day, and send updates to parents in real-time or as a summary at the end of the day. Global settings with manual overrides ensure total control over what gets communicated when.

Notifications of important events, like when it’s time to administer a dose of medication, can be pre-set to go off every day at the appropriate time, and end dates can be set as well.

At the end of each session, pay is calculated and recorded for future reference.

Already downloaded hundreds of times in its first few days, Babysitting Pro fills a niche in the childcare market. The app’s very first user review sums it up: “A must - have for all sitters. As a parent, I am thrilled that our sitter is using this app. She keeps track of our picky baby's food intake, diapers, naps, meds, etc..super professional, simple to use. HIGHLY recommend!

iOS version is free for the duration of the launch week.
