Today, nearly all popular services are provided to the people at their doorstep. Babysitting is also one such service that is booming in the on-demand market. Parents can now hire professional babysitters or nannies at affordable costs in a few minutes. The Uber for Babysitters app makes this possible. It came to the market a few years ago, and parents have leaned towards it as it has become a trusted platform to find babysitters.
Why a babysitter app?
Parents experience great joy when they give birth to a child. But, taking proper care (at all times) can be tiring. Especially if both the parents are employed, then it will be difficult as they have no one to look after the baby while they are at work. The babysitter app is a solution that overcomes this issue. This app will help the parents to find a trusted babysitter or nanny available within the range of their home. The parents can then go to work, get together, or visit their loved ones peacefully, knowing that the baby is being taken care of properly.
What is the basic workflow of the app?
The babysitter app can be downloaded from the Play Store or the App Store. The app has three different panels, namely the user panel, administrator panel, and the babysitter panel. The flow of the babysitter app goes as follows:
Specify the location
Mention the duration
Go through the charges per hour
Analyze the babysitter profile
Place a request
Pay the babysitter
Review and rate the babysitter or nanny.
Monitor the process

What are the basic attributes to be present in the babysitting app?
There are a few basic features to be present in the Uber for Babysitters app. These features will help you gain a large customer base and make the app efficient.
As mentioned earlier, the app has multiple panels, and the options/screens available in the panels should vary based on the role. This will help the concerned person access the app easily and identify all the necessary options.
Basic details form:
Obtain the basic information of the user, such as name, contact number, email ID, and more. This will help you know more about the user, and you can cater efficiently to their needs.
Send a unique code to the email ID or the phone number the user specifies to check if the information is correct. After the authentication process is over, the user will become a registered member.
Verification for the babysitters:
The babysitters or nannies who want to work with the babysitting app should undergo a verification process, after which they can start accepting requests. This will make the customers feel that the babysitters can be trusted.
The users should be able to schedule appointments ahead of time. Before the specified time, a babysitter will be assigned to the user. The user will be reminded about the appointment via text messages, push notifications, and calls.
The babysitter should be provided with an availability slider bar that they can enable or disable based on their availability to provide babysitting services.
Live location tracking:
The live location of the babysitter can be accessed by the user. This will ensure the users that the baby is in a location they are aware of. The babysitters can send photo updates to the user if requested by them.
Search filters based on several categories:
The app will have multiple search filters that will help the user find an appropriate babysitter available near them. The search filters can be based on a charge per hour, availability, waiting time, and more.
Cancelation of appointments:
The users should be able to cancel babysitting appointments easily. If they have already paid for it, then the refund should be credited as per the refund policy framed.
Reviews and ratings:
Make sure that the user and the babysitter are able to rate each other. They should also be able to provide any feedback if required.
