Kiddo – The Babysitting App That Makes Finding And Booking A Babysitter a Breeze!
Introducing Kiddo! The Babysitting App of your Dreams!
Kiddo is a Babysitting app that connects parents to verified, trusted, local carers instantly. It is currently servicing Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba with plans to launch nationally in the future.
Kiddo app aims to give both parents and carers the very best in babysitting, making babysitting a breeze!
Kiddo does this by giving parents SO MUCH MORE information. It does this by allowing Parents to view carer intro videos, read reviews and ratings given by other parents, really get to understand more about your potential babysitter before booking their services.
Kiddo has some great in-app features, including:
– Parents pay using their credit card (saving the need to find an ATM ever again!!),
– Parents can stay organized having their babysitting bookings located in the one place
– Our in-app messaging system prompts babysitters to communicate more with you during your booking – giving you peace of mind.
– Kiddo keeps you organized syncing to your calendar
Kiddo knows that our besties opinion means so much and Kiddo allows you to save and share your favourite Babysitters, having them at your fingertips. Kiddo knows it takes a village to raise a family, so get behind your fellow mums and share Babysitters amongst yourselves.
Think of all the time you’ve ever wasted on even booking your current babysitter – never again!
Kiddo knows that trust and safety are important – so you can even invite your current babysitters to Kiddo to use all of its wonderful features! All carers have their ID verified to government documents using the latest in technology, Blue cards are also verified giving parents further peace of mind.
‘It then dawned on me – why can’t I book a babysitter in the time she goes down a slide’
Rebecca – Kiddo Founder
Kiddo is different, they are not a job board – you don’t submit a babysitting booking to be bombarded with 20 emails or Facebook messages and then have to sift through them all. Kiddo only shows available carers (babysitters input their availability) – making it much more seamless and efficient for both parent and babysitter. You simply select time, date and look at the available babysitters and click ‘book’ done!
Kiddo can be used every day or better still – when you’re away on the Sunny or Gold Coasts – great to use for a dinner date when you’re away with the kids.

The ‘Aha’ Moment Behind Kiddo
Kiddo came about late 2018, after having to try to find last-minute care, Kiddo Founder Rebecca really had enough of booking a babysitter. Rebecca says:
‘It would take up to a week to organize (yes you understand my pain) and I had 3 babysitters’ numbers in my phone. I would have to politely ask one after the other and quite frankly asking someone to babysit on Saturday with a few days’ notice felt almost impossible. I felt impolite even asking at such short notice.
Again, I had some friends ask us out for dinner, I couldn’t ever just say yes on the spot – I ‘had to ask my babysitter first’ to confirm and get back to them. Booking a babysitter was taking over my life!!
It was the following week I was ordering my groceries online as my 3-year-old was playing in the park. I thought ‘there has got to be a better way’. If I can order my groceries in a click, order an Uber in a few clicks, why can’t I do this to book a babysitter! It then dawned on me – why can’t I book a babysitter in the time she goes down a slide – and that has been my mission ever since!’
Meet Rebecca – The Founder of Kiddo and a Local Brisbane Mum
I’m Rebecca, I’m a mother of two, I understand that life is hectic. I understand our lives are forever changing and kids schedules can take over. But I also know that making sometime for ourselves is even more important. I have babysat since I was 12, so I really understand what Parents are looking for and also what babysitters are looking for – its been the perfect match to create a platform that works well for both.
I grew up in humble beginnings in Darwin, where my mother raised me to believe that anything is possible with hard work and determination. We should always treat others with respect and with anything we do in life we should leave a legacy of making it better (bigger, better or at least memorable!)
I’ve worked for years in corporate and it was during my maternity leave, that I realized there was so much more to the world. I truly came to understand the life of a mother, how hard it can be at times, but also how rewarding and inspiring the world can be – women supporting women.
I am super energetic about life, my daughters and living the best life we all can. Kiddo is important to me because I know I am helping parents but also empowering your women in our communities by providing them with access to further earning potential.
We know that self-care is important, Kiddo is really here as a tool to help parents get some more time, live their best lives and enjoy whatever they are doing knowing that the kids are being well cared for.
My Kiddo journey so far has provided me with many memorable moments, new learnings but my biggest highlight to date has been the people I have met along the way. Everyone is so encouraging and enthusiastic about Kiddo and about supporting a local Brisbane Mum!
