MomSub is transforming child care one family at a time.
Our vision is to help you safely get your kids to school or activities, deal with any child care crisis, or take a break from mom duties without paying a sitter.
So go ahead. Work out. Shop alone. Organize your closet. Enjoy date night. Finish a project. Take a nap. Read a book.
Using the MomSub app expands your network of mom friends, introduces you to other cultures, fills you with pride for helping another mom, and gives you a greater sense of community in your own neighborhood.
It all sounds great, but what does MomSub actually do?
MomSub collects information from moms like you about when they are available to drive or watch someone else's kids and when they are in need of someone to drive or watch their kids.
MomSub makes the connection between the MomOuts who need help and the MomSubs who can step in and provide care.
Financial assistance is available!
Rates start at $15 per child per hour, but the stress relief is priceless!
I’ve seen other groups with similar purposes. What makes yours the best?
There are many apps, websites and services that provide you with information about babysitters, nannies and daycare centers, but those child care providers can charge $20 per hour or more or can be young women who are not mothers. MomSub fits your budget and offers you other moms in your neighborhood who understand the challenges of motherhood and the latest research about safety and health for children.
Is this a babysitting swapping service?
MomSub is similar to a babysitting co-op, but you aren't limited to just a few people you know. It's great for moms who don't have family or many friends nearby or don't want to bother other parents with texts and emails trying to set up carpools, playdates and favors. It doesn't require you to do any organizing or planning. Just enter your information, and we'll find a MomSub for you who is available now.
I'm ready to sign up! When can I get it?
MomSub is currently being offered through a pilot program in the suburbs of Chicago. You can request childcare here, or apply to be a provider here. Our prototype app is available here (but not yet available through the App Store or Google Play). We are developing additional features that will be available for free download soon. Email us to help us decide which features to include in our app and be selected as an app tester. We'd love to hear your feedback!
