That has meant not only highly experienced caregivers that can deal with the most complex of situations but higher rates to fairly compensate these professionals.
At Poppy we pride ourselves in working to understand each caregiver’s experience, qualifications, and strengths. For the past couple years as we developed that expertise, we chose to work with the most experienced caregivers.
Poppy Sitters are vetted the same rigorous way we vet all caregivers, but their childcare experience has been in more informal settings like occasional babysitting for a handful of families. Their experience tends to match well with caring for kiddos 2 years and up.
Poppy Sitters are $17/hr for one child, $18/hr for two kids and $19/hr for 3 kids.
Meet a couple of our Poppy Sitters!
Now, when you submit a request, you’ll be able to select which tiers you’d like us to match you with. If you’re flexible, choose both. (Just a note that as we get up and going, the availability of Poppy Sitters will be more limited than Poppy Pros but we’ll let you know and ask if you’re okay with getting a Pro instead.)
