HOW IT WORKS
BOOK IN SECONDS
Select a date & time, hit send and a booking request is sent to a curated list of TLC for Kids nannies selected just for you. The first to accept gets the job and you’ll be notified as soon as they confirm.
Once you’re home, the nanny will finalize the end time directly in the app. You can review the details and add any tips or reimbursements within 24 hours before your credit card will be charged. And even better…no more stops at the ATM on your way home!
EVERYTHING YOUR SITTER NEEDS
Give your sitter all the critical info they need to make sure care runs smoothly, including emergency contacts, allergies, bedtime routines, media and dietary restrictions, Wi-Fi passwords & codes, house rules, kid tips, sitter guidelines, pet care, and other helpful notes.

When setting up your booking request, in the “Sitters to Request” section, you can click on “Deselect All” and then tap on your favorites and your request will be sent to them.
Once you’re home, the nanny will finalize the end time directly in the app. You can review the details and add any tips or reimbursements within 24 hours before your credit card will be charged. Once you’ve reviewed it, you will be charged on the credit card you provided during your set-up.
Forget to review the final booking details? No problem- your credit card will be automatically charged 24 hours after the sit so the nanny will still get paid.
To cancel a booking, go to “My Bookings” and tap on the booking you need to cancel. Tap “Cancel Booking” then add your reason for canceling. A message will be sent to the sitter(s) and the booking will be canceled.
