Upwards connects thousands of families every day with the best local caregivers to provide safe, affordable, high quality childcare.

As the nation's most loved network of vetted, licensed, and background checked caregivers, Upwards provides families a stress-free way to discover, meet, and book childcare with the best, parent-reviewed care providers in their area.

Find daycares, nannies, and babysitters that meet your family's unique needs. No matter your schedule, budget, or special accommodations, Upwards allows you to easily match and vet providers to find the perfect fit for your child. Many caregivers complete a background check process when joining Upwards, but parents also have the ability to request a comprehensive evaluation from the app before meeting childcare providers.

We understand that finding the right caregiver is critical and your time as a parent is limited. Upwards makes it simple for parents and caregivers to connect, chat, and schedule virtual tours and interviews to ensure the right fit without the hassle. Once you've found your match, easily request and schedule childcare directly from the Upwards app.

Upwards caregivers have access to hundreds of educational activities and curriculum designed to ensure that children are constantly learning and developing. All activities include comprehensive instructions that are catered to each age group (infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged kiddos), as well as pointers for parents to help continue education at home. Caregivers can easily share photo and video updates from the Upwards app so parents don't miss a moment.

Get the support you need from other families in your neighborhood through the Upwards Community forum. Receive answers to questions about childcare, behavior and development, parenting hacks, and tough topics from local childcare and early education experts. Once your questions are answered, you can also share and learn about kid-friendly activities and things to do with your little ones in your neighborhood.

Apply to join the largest care network in America to match with local families for daycare, nanny, or babysitter needs in your neighborhood. Collect reviews from parents and build out your Upwards caregiver profile to share certifications, experience, schedule availability, and your care philosophy with families in your community.

So happy I found WeeCare

I was nearing the end of my maternity leave and could not find childcare for my son. I had called everyplace i could find through google in a ten+ mile radius from us and no one had openings. I stumbled across WeeCare and within a few hours of contacting them they let me know of a perfect fit in-home daycare just about 15 min from my house that had an opening. I did a tour that day and had confirmed everything within 24 hours! It was a huge weight lifted after painfully searing myself for weeks and getting nowhere. I just wish I would have found them earlier and not wasted my time with searching myself. The place he is at is so cute and very loving.

Not worth the hype

I’m not sure about the other reviews but I must say I’m not happy with this app at all. I just wanted to get in touch with a in home daycare by my work and had to do all these phone calls and text messages just so they collect the data for an app I won’t even probably use since I can’t get into the daycare. Waste of time. I wish I could’ve just call straight the place and get in touch with them without having this fake concierge service that is only used for data collection. I also don’t agree with having my kids pictures on some cloud on all these apps that appear and disappear daily. I would rather have the teacher send me the pics straight to my personal phone and not on these apps. I truly don’t see the point of it, it’s way easier to call straight the place and have the information on their website with schedules and all they offer than expect them to call you back and only collect data from you. Weird. I’m sure the in home daycares are loosing revenue and clients by just relying on the app when I could give them a call and check out the facility without this much trouble.

Don’t do it

I went to WeeCare hoping it would be a pleasant experience. I WAS DEAD WRONG. The first week, they took out multiple payments, and did not tell me about it. I asked about the multiple payments and was told that I needed to pay two payments up front. They never told me about it. They just took it. Then, upon unenrolling, I called to be sure I was taken off their billing list to ensure I didn’t get money taken yet again, and was told I was taken off the list. Monday morning I wake up with $0.00 in my bank account. (Luckily my savings soaked up the negative in my checking acct). I contacted WeeCare, outraged because I live paycheck to paycheck. And a missing $300 is not an issue I can readily pay for unless I’m warned ahead of time. They told me I would have to wait until my bank can process it, and they would issue a refund that day. So by Wednesday I should have my money back. RIDICULOUS. HORRIBLE COMPANY. STAY CLEAR. THEY DO NOT CARE ABIUT THEIR CUSTOMERS AT ALL.
