Amazing App for Babysitting!
I am a sitter and have been using the app regularly for about 8 months. I have built a steady clientele of parents in my area that I babysit for regularly. It has proved to be a lucrative side job for me! There is always local support readily available for parents and sitters alike. The process is incredibly simple - I receive requests from parents, I let them know that I am available and then they confirm! I get to set my own rates and don’t have to worry about haggling my services. I show up (with a babysitting bag full of fun and parent-approved toys and activities) and have a blast with the kids! When the parents return I don’t have to worry about collecting payment - the app takes care of it for me. Parents can even leave a tip through the app! I then get my payment from Venmo about 2 business days later. This is definitely my favorite childcare app!
Biased 🚫🚫🚫 Beware
I am 16 years old and have been using the Bambino app for over a year. It is a good way to connect with parents in your area. Unfortunately it is a bit biased and parents tend to be favored. Payment is through the app so when a babysitter is done with their job and the parents have come home they hit the button that says end job and they are given the option to give a thumbs up or a thumbs down about the parents.
Parents can then confirm the payment and give a recommendation. But in order for that to happen the babysitter must ask for it when they confirm the sit is over. They have no idea what the parent will say about them (which is public and permanently on the sitter’s profile)and that’s when a parent can say very negative things about a babysitter and not worry about it because they won’t have to see them if they choose not to hire them again. Unfortunately a babysitter cannot defend themselves and state the facts on why the parents negative views may be incorrect or unfair. Also, a babysitter can’t rate a parent which seems logical but actually is frustrating because some parents have standards that are way too high to begin with. Watch out future sitters! I recommend this app but it will most likely be a bit of a rough experience.
Great, but needs some improvements
I think it for the most part it is very well designed, it is very easy to accept or deny jobs, you can update your profile easily, and I love the rewards system. However, I think an improvement that would be really helpful on the sitters’ end would be to have an availability feature. Currently you can only switch your profile on and off, but I would love to be able to set time availabilities so that parents can’t request me during a time I’m not available, and maybe even a calendar where you can mark off days that you are unavailable for vacation purposes or prior commitments. Many parents request far in advance or for during the day, and I always feel bad denying parents because I have prior commitments, or because I am at my full time job during the times they are requesting. Some sort of calendar/time availability feature would be extremely helpful and a great addition to an already great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
