How to use the Bambino App

Modified on Fri, 20 Jan 2023 at 02:07 PM

Step 1: Set up your profile

Creating a profile with Bambino requires at least one recommendation from any parent you’ve babysat for previously or a responsible adult that can advocate for you. While setting up your profile you can choose your rate, availability, experience, and any other details about your babysitting skills! For more tips on creating a high-quality profile that will get you more requests, visit the How to Set Up My Profile FAQ.

Step 2: Respond to requests  

After you’ve set up your profile and received your first parent recommendation, your profile will become active for parents to find you! You don’t have to worry about searching for jobs, because parents will reach out to you with babysitting requests. When you receive a request by text or notification, you’re given the option to accept or decline the request. Each request includes the time and date of the sit, location, amount of kids, and any other information you need to know. Prior to responding to the request, Bambino allows you to check out the parent’s profile, which includes additional information needed before accepting a request. Make sure you are ready to accept your first request and that you are free prior to accepting the booking.  

Step 3: Be confirmed for a sit

The parent is notified when you’ve accepted a job request. Parents send out requests to multiple sitters at a time and will choose a sitter for the job. Parents commonly choose the sitters that respond the fastest, so it’s important to stay on top of all sit requests. If you are available and accept the request, the parent has 24 hours to confirm you as the sitter. You will also have the option to reach out to the parent, to ask any questions about the sit that you may have.

Step 4: Get paid

Once you’ve been accepted for a babysitting job, make sure to arrive on time or a little early for the babysitting job! You will track the duration of the sit on the app and confirm when the sit ends. Once the sit is finished, the family will be prompted to review your time and pay you!
