No. We specialize in sitting in the traditional sense and not in nannies. Our sitters provide occassional sitting such as for a night out, for weekend activities, and during the summer. We do have the occasional sitter available for a daytime activity during the week (depending upon sitter availability). You may also be able to find a summer nanny on Nounou Neighbors but it is not our focus nor is it guaranteed.
Are other services available through Nounou Neighbors?
Yes. Our sitters are now also available for gift wrapping, organizing rooms and running errands for you or your parents!
What sets Nounou Neighbors apart from other sitter websites?
We personally interview, coach and train each sitter. We also perform a criminal background check on our sitters in Johnson County, Kansas District Court and all Missouri County Courts prior to them being approved to access the app. Nounou Neighbors has built a unique system that includes an app for our sitters to receive a push notification when a family posts a job on the family app and allows the family to receive push notifications of sitters interested in their job. The family can then view the sitter’s picture, profile and phone number on the app and select the sitter applicant of their choice.
How much does it cost to access the website?
$20 a month (first month is $65, which includes a one-time registration fee of $40). If you sign up for a year membership your registration fee is waived. There is no contract or long-term commitment. You can cancel at any time. Your credit card or bank account on file with PayPal will be billed monthly on the day of the month you registered if you are paying by the month, or on the day of your yearly anniversary if you prepay for one year of access.
How do I find a sitter?
Once you have registered, paid and created your profile on the app, simply click the Add a job button; You will specify your closest high school, the date and times of the job, the hourly rate you would like to pay, any notes about the job, and the ages and sexes of your children. All of our sitters will then receive a push notification from our sitter app with your job details. As sitters indicate that they are interested in your job you will receive real time push notifications with interested sitters’ names and numbers. You can then view the sitters’ picture and profile in the app, choose your sitter, and then contact the potential sitter to work out any final details.
How do I pay my sitter?
You will pay your sitter directly. Nounou Neighbors does not charge any fees or percentages on what you pay your sitter.
Does Nounou Neighbors run background checks on the sitters?
Sitters over 18 are criminally background checked in Johnson County, Kansas District Court and all county courts in Missouri . However, many of the sitters on Nounou Neighbors are minors. Juvenile court records are generally not public records so any background check performed on minors would be unlikely to provide to any information. We also personally conduct a coaching and training session with each sitter. We do encourage families to ask sitters for references and families are welcome to perform their own background checks or driving record checks if it gives them peace of mind.
