Read Time:5 Minute, 18 Second

In this current generation, most of the parents are both working professionals. They remain so busy with their work that it became really hard for them to manage time for their kids. They fail to maintain a balance between their personal life and professional life. They have so many social and professional responsibilities that they sometimes have very little or no time to spend with their children.

Now the same is faced by many working professionals that it has created an emergent need for babysitters in the society. In some cases, it is not always possible for parents to find babysitters of their choice because of the lack of options or find babysitters at all. So Taking the advantage of this current market demands many companies are coming up with an app named babysitting app. I know the first question that comes to your mind is what is a babysitting app.

What is a babysitting app? Let’s first understand what babysitting is. Since working professionals can no longer make time for their children, they hire a trained person who will take care of them in their absence, schedules the day for their children, play with them, feed them, and can also do some light housekeeping.

But an app can’t really perform all these activities right. So basically a babysitter app will make it easier for the parents to find a perfect babysitter for their kid in very little time.

I am Giving a little description of how a babysitting app will work.

  • Both parents and willing babysitters will download the app and register all the details that are required.
  • Parents can go through multiple profiles of babysitters and select according to their needs and budget.
  • The selected person will receive a notification on the app. They can have a look at the service details and respond accordingly.
  • After the agreement of both parents and babysitters, he/she can come to their house and take care of their children in their absence.
  • After the service parents will also be able to pay through the app.
  • There will also be options to rate and write reviews that will help the next parents to make decisions.

Now you can relate to how these apps will actually help the parents that are in desperate need of a babysitter. While creating a high-demand babysitting app you have to consider both the needs of parents and babysitters.

This is not much of a complicated app to develop. But here are the things you need to keep in your mind while developing a high demand babysitting app:

  1. Option to check availability: Parents need babysitters because they are not present at home to take care of their kids. But different parents have different timings of the job. So they require babysitters according to their timing. Some parents need babysitters only between 9-5 where others may need a 24/7 service only for the weekdays.

So there must be an option in the app where babysitters can register the timing of their availability and parents can sort babysitters based on their preference of timing. It’ll be beneficial for both babysitters and parents.

  1. Simple and user-friendly: While designing an app you should keep in mind who will be the users. Only working parents will be users of the babysitting app who have very little time. So there is no point in making it complicated. The main purpose of this app should be to provide parents with simple ways to find and hire a babysitter.

The number of functions should be limited and easy to use for the parents. A user-friendly app with simple navigation will surely be appreciated.

  1. Have Online payment option: An online payment option makes life so much easier. In the babysitting app, this feature is very required. It’ll save time for both the parents and babysitters as well. Parents can also pay from the office or anywhere.

An automatic payments system can also be implemented to this app where at the end of the month, salary will be automatically debited from the parents’ account and credited to the babysitters’ account. Multiple payment options should also be introduced so that the user can pay whichever way they prefer.

  1. Safety feature: This will be a really important feature while developing a high-demand babysitter app. Safety should be the no1 priority both for the parents and babysitters.

In the app, there must be a section where both users can register a complaint against the other. You can create a system that will provide 24/7 assistance to the users in case any critical situation arises.

Users can also be banned and taken to custody if they don’t maintain the protocols. To know better, Check out this link for know babysitter app like uber.

  1. Defined Responsibilities: It is really important because parents hire persons as a babysitter and after a few days he/she becomes a housekeeper. Babysitters already have too much in their schedules and with added responsibilities, at the end of the day they end up being exhausted.

That is why the app should have a section where before hiring they can clearly define what will be the exact responsibilities that the employee needs to perform. After understanding her duty, she will click agree and then only she can join the house as a babysitter.

  1. Fair Pay and perks: This is the problem with most employers. At the time of hiring, they will promise so many things but as time passes they tend to forget what they have promised. So before being hired, a person has the right to know what the perks and salary he/she will receive after being hired.

You can also include a video chat section where parents can take a small interview of the persons whom they want to hire. It’ll create a great working environment. Tell your app development team to implement the features mentioned above.
