Every day, we connect thousands of families with the best local caregivers to provide safe, affordable, high quality childcare.
As the nation's most loved network of vetted, licensed, and background checked caregivers, we provide families a stress-free way to discover, meet, and book childcare with the best, parent-reviewed care providers in their area.
FIND THE PERFECT CAREGIVER FOR YOUR FAMILY
Find daycares, nannies, and babysitters that meet your family's unique needs. No matter your schedule, budget, or special accommodations, we allow you to easily match and vet providers to find the perfect fit for your child. Many caregivers complete a background check process when joining Upwards, but parents also have the ability to request a comprehensive evaluation from the app before meeting childcare providers.
MEET VIRTUALLY TO SAVE TIME
We understand that finding the right caregiver is critical and your time as a parent is limited. We make it simple for parents and caregivers to connect, chat, and schedule virtual tours and interviews to ensure the right fit without the hassle. Once you've found your match, easily request and schedule childcare directly from the app.
WATCH YOUR KIDDO GROW AND DEVELOP
Upwards caregivers have access to hundreds of educational activities and curriculum designed to ensure that children are constantly learning and developing. All activities include comprehensive instructions that are catered to each age group (infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged kiddos), as well as pointers for parents to help continue education at home. Caregivers can easily share photo and video updates from the app so parents don't miss a moment.
CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMUNITY
Get the support you need from other families in your neighborhood through the Upwards Community forum. Receive answers to questions about childcare, behavior and development, parenting hacks, and tough topics from local childcare and early education experts. Once your questions are answered, you can also share and learn about kid-friendly activities and things to do with your little ones in your neighborhood.
