Safe rides and childcare for kids, from preschool to high school. Kango - for families going places!

Kango helps you get your kids (from preschool to high school) where they need to go:
● Book a driver to take your daughter to soccer practice while you are on a business trip
● Set up a carpool to take your son and his three friends to band practice every Thursday
● Have a Kango driver take you and your toddler to preschool before you go to work
● Get a sitter to bring the kids home from school and get them started on homework
● And more!

Available in California in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego - and as of January 2020 also in Phoenix, Arizona - Kango lets you book rides and babysitting from pre-screened drivers and sitters. All Kango drivers and sitters have at least 3 years of childcare experience, and have passed our comprehensive screening process (including fingerprinting, background checks and DMV checks) and training to ensure they can provide the best, safest service possible.

As featured in Dow Jones Marketwatch/WSJ:
“Uber-but-for-kids services like Kango are growing, [...] A similar service to Uber but reserved solely for kids? Totally cool. That is what 8-year-old [Kango passenger will tell you.”



Kango gives you access to an incredible selection of pre-screened drivers and sitters. All you need to do is:

1. Schedule a ride, childcare or both.
Kango supports one-time or ongoing requests and can even supply boosters or forward-facing car seats if needed.

2. See who can help
We’ll reach out to our pool of background-checked, fingerprinted caregivers in your area and find the best person to fulfill your request. You can even request your preferred drivers and sitters, or meet one ahead of time.

3. Stay in touch every step of the way
Enjoy real-time updates from your driver or sitter or track their location in the app. Or call them directly.

You can also join neighborhood and school groups to collaborate and chat with other nearby parents.
