Fees

There are two standard options for the Agency Fee to accommodate most needs. However, we are happy to discuss any unique circumstances with you. We do have some special rates available to meet a variety of circumstances including, ongoing regular bookings, consecutive day bookings and bookings for special events such as weddings, conferences (anything that may require care of multiple children from multiple families).

STANDARD AGENCY FEES

Booking Fee - $15
For Casual Bookings - This option is for you if you do not plan to use our service very often (1-2 times in 6 months). A good choice for occasional services or Puerto Rico visitors.

Membership Joining Fee - $99 for 12 months
For Multiple Bookings - This option is for you if you need a babysitter more frequently (3 times or more in a 6 month period). This is better suited to those who live locally and want to book our babysitters for repeat occasions. During a 12 month membership each time you subsequently book a babysitter you are not entitled to pay. You will also get to access all our benefits and offers.

Other Circumstances? - Please ask us directly how we might be able to meet your needs.
