How do I meet families in my area?
As a nanny, babysitter, or daycare provider using WeeCare, you'll be able to meet families once you've joined our platform. Once registered, you'll be able to connect with families in your area who are looking for childcare with your specific skills and qualifications. Finally, you can also reach out to families in your area directly through our platform and introduce yourself and describe your experience and your availability.
How soon can I begin working?
With WeeCare, one of the best ways to immediately begin working with families in your area is to complete your registration. Daycare providers are required to adhere to state licensing requirements, while nannies and babysitters are encouraged to complete a background check. This will allow you to connect with potential families in a timely manner and increase your chances of finding the perfect match.
How can I prepare for handling childcare emergencies?
As a childcare provider, it is important to keep emergency contact information for each child. Familiarize yourself with emergency medical procedures — such as basic first aid and CPR — and invest in emergency equipment and supplies, such as fire extinguishers and emergency lighting. It is also important to have a relationship with the local emergency services and be familiar with the emergency phone number and location of the nearest hospital.
How do I set rates for my services?
There are several factors that nannies, babysitters, and daycare providers may consider when setting rates, including location, experience, and the type of service you offer. One of the most exciting things about setting your rate is that it allows you to create a unique and personalized service that fits the needs of the families in your care!
