SitEinander is the app that allows parents to digitally connect in order to support each other with their child care needs: as one good deed deserves another, parents take turns looking after each other’s children.
Instead of paying for expensive child care, parents can now simply organize themselves as mutual babysitters with the help of this app. Acquainted families can easily be reached with one single request posted in one’s own trusted circle of parents, allowing families to quickly find the help they need. Instead of money, parents exchange virtual “SitPoints” for completed babysitting jobs. This way, the transaction remains fair, and parents stay motivated to participate in mutual child care – best of all, there’s no need to feel guilty.
Meet new families in your neighborhood! Our integrated map feature allows you to see which parent groups already exist around you. Subsequently, you can either join established groups or create new (open or closed) groups in your area.
Invite acquainted parents to become part of your own personal babysitting network. Whenever you are looking for a babysitter, your friends can see your respective inquiry. Good to know: even you are not yet one hundred percent sure about a new friend, you can still add them to your network; with every new request, you ALWAYS decide whether it becomes visible to your whole network or just a few selected friends.
Post a babysitting request and choose a matching offer: when you need someone to look after your kids, simply post a short inquiry, which is immediately sent out to the families within your personal network. Those among your friends who have the time and are willing to help you out can subsequently list themselves as available. It is now up to you to select an arrangement – and your child care needs are met. In return, your friends earn “SitPoints” for the exchange and can later use these to organize the babysitting support they need for themselves.
Every networking app needs a profile section – and so does this one. However, personal details are generally kept to a minimum: once you have successfully started the app, other users simply see the area in which you live and how many children you have. Your profile also includes the current number of SitPoints at your disposal, which allow you to pay for babysitting jobs.
Our direct chat function enables you to meet new families and connect with each other. Once you have become friends, you can invite other parents into your own babysitting network.
Every member has a personal account that shows the number of SitPoints you currently have. Everyone starts with 24 points at their disposal. The app automatically calculates the amount of points that have been spent or earned through each individual exchange.
10 minutes of babysitting = 1 SitPoint. One hour of babysitting = 6 SitPoints.
