SF Parents: Request Trusted Childcare & Rides for Kids


As you know, KangaDo is a mobile service helps busy parents find trustworthy help with their kids. We’re focused on childcare and transportation, and have been featured in Techcrunch and Business Insider. Thousands of parents across the US already use KangaDo to help each other out with carpools or childcare.

Now, we are excited to announce our new beta service – childcare and rides from pre-screened Sitters & Drivers you can trust! Only in San Francisco and for selected parents on KangaDo.

KangaDo Sitters are perfect for afterschool care, date nights, or when you just need a break! Let our Drivers help with morning school drop off, afterschool pickup, and rides between activities.

Who are our Sitters & Drivers? 

Our Sitters & Drivers are not your average babysitters. We’ve picked the best: warm and friendly babysitters, nannies, and parents with years of experience.

They passed our KangaDo Check with flying colors: extensive in-person interviews and trainings, reference and background checks. Background checks are comprehensive, from criminal searches from multiple counties and databases, to DMV checks for drivers.
