What is she saying? Save money on my childcare costs? How is that so? Let me introduce you to Sitting Around an entirely new concept designed just for parents. Today’s parents don’t have large, extended families, and this can make parenting in the modern world quite isolating. Babysitting coops, groups of neighbors who trade childcare, act like an adopted extended family. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child — SittingAround helps you build that village.
Babysitting cooperatives (or coops) are groups of parents who trade childcare services with one another. Instead of exchanging cash, members simply exchange sitting for sitting. Coops make sure everything nets out equitably by tracking points.
You get points when you sit for someone else, and you spend points when others are sitting for you. The Johnsons can sit for the Browns, the Browns can sit for the Smiths, and the Smiths can sit for the Johnsons. Because you are part of a group, you never have to worry about reciprocating directly with those sitting for you – eventually, it all gets around. More info on getting started can be found here.
As with all babysitters and childcare you should always meet and get to know the other family’s in which you will swap with. It’s FREE to sign up so do it with the neighbors and friends even. It’s a great way to schedule when you’d need them and vice versa.
Sign up today and get a baby sitter in a few weeks. You never know you may meet some new friends along the way!
