Our founder’s biggest challenge as a mom has been finding last minute and occasional childcare. Affordable, trustworthy and reliable childcare was a quandary she knew other moms faced as well. She was not alone.
Research has found…
64% of parents would pay more for a last-minute sitter.
The average cost of a babysitter is $15/hr. If you hired a sitter twice a month for four hours, you’d be paying $120/month.
Top two reasons families don’t hire a sitter: It costs too much and it’s too stressful to find someone they like and trust.
Surprisingly, 62% of parents have hired a babysitter without checking references and 64% have done so without running a background check. Yet, 41% completely trust their sitter.
Each time she was scrambling for childcare, she knew there had to be a better way. She set out to create a solution that would serve the needs of parents. Why not bring moms together to swap childcare? Thus, momi swap™ was born-- where moms and childcare intersect.
More than anything, moms need moms and moms trust other moms. We need a support system that allows us to just take a break without having to do everything for everyone. Finding, figuring out and financing the right childcare can get complex. We know that more and more families are in need of flexible childcare—for date night, a meeting, quiet time, a nap, pedicure, whatever it is, we’ve got you
covered! momi swap™ is here for you!
