Nope. Our basic plan is totally free. You only pay for the care you book. (If youupgrade to our premium planfor $29.99/month, you get a lower hourly rate when you book care. But that’s totally optional.)
Yes and no. We can’t guarantee that a single sitter that you choose will be available at the exact time you need them. Instead, we let you make shortlists of a bunch of different sitters you like, and send your request to ALL of them. Then we book the first sitter who says they can do it. (And we automatically save your list for next time.)
Nanno is an on-demand sitter app, focused on helping you find a babysitter when and where you need one. But if you're looking for more consistent help -- full-time nannies, part-time, after-school sitters -- check out StayCare by Nanno.
Of course! Unlike other babysitting apps, ALL sitters on Nanno are background checked. (Read more about our full screening process here.)
It depends on where you are, but the hourly rate ranges from $16 to $35 per hour. In the vast majority of locations, the hourly rate is $20 per hour on the basic (free) plan, or $16 per hour if you have a Nanno Pass.
Unlike Care.com, SitterCity and even UrbanSitter, Nanno is truly an on-demand app. Think of us like Uber or Lyft, while our competitors are more like a big list of taxi drivers who might be available (or might not).
We do a lot of work to make sure this doesn’t happen -- including check-ins with sitters leading up to their booking, etc. But if it DOES happen, our team will do everything in our power to find a replacement sitter ASAP. (We take reliability very seriously!)
If you aren’t feeling great about the sitter you’re matched with, you can cancel anytime before the booking begins, and we’ll match you with a new one.
Payment is processed automatically through the Nanno system. When you book your sitter, you enter your credit card details. Your card is “authorized” at that time, but you don’t actually get charged until your booking is completed.
When you find a sitter you love, you can add her to your favorites list. The next time you book a sitter, you can request her first.
Yes and no. Currently, our app only handles one-time bookings. But if you find a sitter you love and want to work with her on a regular basis, we can set you up for automatic bookings on a set schedule -- just let us know.
Yes! Most sitters love working
events.Contact usfor more info on booking babysitters for events.
Of course! You can cancel for free up to 24 hours in advance of your booking (or within 15 minutes after your booking is confirmed, for same-day bookings). If you cancel outside of those times, a cancellation fee applies.
Yes! All Nanno engagements are fully insured and bonded.
Yes. While we don’t specifically vet sitters for driving (i.e. pull driving records or car insurance, check carseats, etc.), you are welcome to discuss those things directly with your sitter and make any arrangements that work for you.
Yes! ThroughNannoCare, employers can provide backup child care as an employee benefit.
