Numerous recent reports have declared that the pandemic has caused an increase in parents desperate for solutions to help them juggle child care responsibilities while working from home. Now the world is ready for a new disruption: hybrid work — an amalgamated model where employees will combine onsite and offsite work — making the child care crisis even more complicated for parents.
Fortunately, Nanno puts an end to the rising number of parents losing sleep over finding babysitters. Nanno is a free all-in-one babysitting app that allows you to book a sitter near you on-demand. The cutting-edge technology of Nanno helps parents find a babysitter in no time, giving them the flexibility they need to tackle the hybrid workplace — and helping to avoid last-minute panic when traditional solutions fall through. Most importantly, all babysitters on Nanno have undergone a thorough background check. In addition, all babysitters on Nanno have to pass exclusively structured skills and psychological tests to be on the app.
Finding a trustworthy and reliable babysitter is not a simple task, especially for the parents who need a babysitter on-demand and for a few hours. It takes immense efforts and various tests to identify the calmest, courteous, punctual, skilled, and vetted babysitters. The screening process structured by Nanno is one of the toughest in the industry.
Parents will never take any chances with the safety of their children, and the expert team at Nanno has developed a rigorous four-step screening process to hire the best babysitters. The process involves following steps to ensure Nanno sitters are experienced in caring for children with a range of special needs.
- The candidates fill out an online application, and the expert team at Nanno reviews the profiles.
- The background vetting process at Nanno is more than just a commercial background check. It is structured with the help of experts to determine if a candidate has ever committed a crime or is ever likely to commit it. The process includes National Criminal search, County-Level Criminal search, 50-State Offender search, and many more.
- The team has designed a skill test, and every shortlisted candidate must pass the skill test to participate in the final round. This test helps the team ensure the candidate knows the basic first aid and safety rules for kids.
- Most importantly, every candidate must pass a behavioral profiling test, which is based on applied psychology. This advanced test helps to detect any indication or tendency toward irresponsible behavior.
Liz Oertle, Nanno’s founder, is a busy mom who had both of her daughters while working full time as a lawyer. She started Nanno before the pandemic, as a way to avoid professional women from being “mommy-tracked” when they had kids. But if the past two years have taught her anything, it’s that the struggle to find high-quality, affordable child care has only gotten worse — making Nanno even more crucial a lifeline than ever before.
Nanno has successfully raised around $2 Million in equity funding to date, mostly through other parents and sitters who share Liz’s vision and see how revolutionary Nanno can be in changing the child care equation. Other reputed investors onboard with Nanno’s mission include 500 Startups, Quake Capital, and League Ventures.
