SittingAround

Founded in 2010, SittingAround makes it easy to create, manage, and grow a babysitting cooperative. Babysitting coops already save thousands of families a great deal of time and money each year. Our goal is to make coops so easy and so well known that every parent joins one. We automate many of the tasks required to effectively manage a coop so our users can focus on what's really important - building and enjoying childcare communities.
