Curated Care App Brings Creative Sitters to Los Angeles

This is a sponsored post, in partnership with Curated Care.

CuratedCare.Com, a NYC-based online marketplace filled with creative Kid Experts available for moms & dads on the hunt for more inspired babysitting options, is bringing its unique community of child care gurus to LA, with the launch of a new app, just in time for back-to-school!

The goal is to help families connect with artists, teachers and generally awesome kid/baby whisperers for souped-up babysitting, at-home enrichment, afterschool pick-up, and more.

Special Offer: MomsLA readers get $20 off their first 2 sessions when they sign up with Curated Care! Scroll down for more info!

More Than a Babysitting App: Kid Experts

Kid Experts are artists & teachers who incorporate their skills into Curated Care’s babysitting service and private lessons. From Hollywood actors to Juilliard dancers, STEM teachers to Montessorians, Kid Experts are talented professionals, epic sitters and inspiring humans you’ll be delighted to have engage with your child.

“When we learned about Curated Care and the Kid Experts it changed our perspective on how our kids could be spending their time when we have a sitter,” says NYC mom Kate U., “The sitters at Curated Care not only have been great at interacting with our kids, but they share their talents and abilities through music, art, language, etc. Our kids will ask for the sitters from Curated Care the next day or ask when they are coming back”.

Find New Sitters, Afterschool Pick-Up and Enrichment

What if you didn’t have to fight traffic and never had to worry about being late to pick your kids up from school? Use Curated Care to find & book a consistent Kid Expert to do after school pick up and ensure your kiddo’s afternoons and evenings are filled with fun & engagement. Lock in your consistent bookings on the platform and enjoy easy scheduling and secure, online invoicing.

Aiming to remove all the labor of finding new sitters, teachers and tutors for busy LA families, co-founders Erin McConaghy and Marlene Veloso sought to create a platform where finding childcare felt inspired and easy (all Kid Experts infuse their unique, creative backgrounds into sessions and you can find, book and pay them all through the site or app). 

“Creating a marketplace of talented, inspired artists and teachers was a goal for us early on,” says co-founder Erin McConaghy, “We are moms and former artists and teachers, and believed in the notion that everyone’s time matters. If we could help families secure the best possible child care, provide a way for artists and teachers to share their skill sets and provide an opportunity for kids to be engaged during babysitting time, it would be a win-win-win.”

Local Los Angeles Babysitters

Prior to covid, Curated Care began a beta-launch in Los Angeles after expanding their family and kid events programming to social clubs and residential buildings in LA. Now Curated Care is expanding their Los Angeles market with a new app and host of local Kid Experts available for back to school season. 

With families joining the Curated Care community from Santa Monica to Calabasas, McConaghy and Veloso are thrilled to help Los Angelenos enjoy the enhanced babysitting experience they’ve cultivated in NYC.

Last-Minute Sitters and Back-Up Sitters

“[My Kid Expert] Leigh was so professional from the moment she accepted my booking,“ says Burbank-based mama Liz Q, “We sent several text messages back and forth getting to know each other a bit. She arrived on time and with a bag full of materials to make arts and crafts with my 5 year old daughter.” 

“When Leigh first arrived she asked if I had any house rules and we talked for a bit and I instantly felt like I was talking with an old friend. I was completely comfortable leaving her with my daughter. Fast forward 5 hours later, and upon my return she had baked cookies with my daughter and built a doll house out of reused cardboard pieces from old Amazon boxes!”

The Curated Care platform allows families to create profiles, search, message and book securely for one-off or recurring sitters, teachers and tutors, both last minute and months in advance. The app (launching August 2022) also includes enhanced tools & features.
