Frequently asked questions

What is Bambino, and how is it different from everyone else?

Meet Bambino, a babysitting app with a personal touch born out of genuine need. Amid the hustle and bustle of four lively kids, a dedicated dad experienced firsthand the difficulty of finding dependable, nearby babysitters. He envisioned a seamless way to connect with available sitters in his community, and thus, Bambino was born.

Unlike any other app, Bambino is deeply rooted in understanding the real challenges parents face. It stands out by fostering a close-knit community where parents can effortlessly find, book, and pay local sitters who are vouched for by friends and neighbors.

Bambino transcends the typical babysitting service by prioritizing personal connections and trust, ensuring parents can always find a reliable helping hand within their community. Experience the Bambino difference – where child care is not just a service but a community of trust, support, and genuine understanding.

How do you vet your sitters?

Hey there, Neighbor! We know that finding a babysitter is a little like dating—super important, a little nerve-wracking, and you definitely want to find “The One.” That’s why at Bambino, we take the matchmaking process seriously! 

 

The Power of Neighborly Love 

We’re all about community here. Think of us as the friendly neighbor who knows everyone and loves connecting with folks. So, we rely on good ol’ word-of-mouth recommendations. Every Sitter on our platform has been given the thumbs-up by at least one Parent from your community. Feel like doing a little sleuthing? Go ahead, read reviews, and see which Sitters your friends adore. We’re all about that “It takes a village” vibe.

While recommendations are golden, we also do our homework. All our Sitters have to pass some essential checks to prove they’re the real deal. Check out some of the essential checks our Sitters go through here

Remember, Parents have been swapping Sitter suggestions at the playground, PTA meetings, and coffee catch-ups for eons. With Bambino, it’s the same village-to-village chatter, just digital and at your fingertips. If you ever want a second, third, or even fourth opinion, just reach out to your friends. After all, it’s not nosy—it’s neighborly!

Can my usual Sitter join Bambino?

We firmly believe everyone could do with a little Bambino in their lives! 

Want to share the love? It’s easy peasy! Just share the app with your sitter using your one-of-a-kind ‘Refer-a-Friend’ link. You can find it hanging out in the ‘My Account’ tab in your Bambino app. Once your sitter has the app too, you can book and pay them straight from your phone! Say goodbye to those ATM dashes or checkbook hunts. Everything you need, from booking to paying, is all in one handy place with Bambino!

And here’s a little secret… your sitter will be thanking you big time! By joining Bambino, they’ll connect with other awesome families in the neighborhood. It’s more than just easy bookings and payments; it’s about growing a community of happy parents and happy sitters. Now, that’s what we call a win-win! 

What happens if I need to cancel?

We get it, sometimes your plans change and you need to cancel. It happens to everyone. In the event you need to cancel, we ask that you give your sitter as much notice as possible, but at least 24 hours notice so they have a chance to make other plans. Parent-initiated cancellations within 24 hours of the booking start time will incur a $2.95 fee. Parent-initiated cancellations within 2 hours of the start time will incur a charge of one (1) hour at the reserved sitter’s published rate or $20, whichever is greater. There will be no charges to the parent in the event the sitter cancels. 

We understand that you are depending on your sitter to arrive on time. Sitter reliability is of the utmost importance to us. As such, we track cancellations within 48 hours of the scheduled booking time. If a sitter’s reliability rating falls below an acceptable level, we deactivate their account. We consider cancellations within 2 hours of the booking time to be equivalent to a no-show. Every no-show/last-minute cancellation is reviewed by our member support team and sitters face immediate deactivation when appropriate.

What is the Parent Premium Membership?

As a part of our Bambino family, the Parent Premium Membership sprinkles a little extra convenience into your life! 

Here’s what you get to enjoy:
