After school pick up

After School Pick-Up SOLVED!

It’s that time of year again! Time to find that unicorn of an after school childcare provider who can maintain a recurring part-time schedule, handle school drop offs and/or pickups, keep your kiddos engaged & in their routine and head out the door in time for your family to reconvene after a long day’s work.

Curated Care offers a variety of creative & inspiring Kid Experts available to cover your scheduling needs. The majority of our Kid Experts work with multiple families for one-off/flexible bookings. A smaller population of Kid Experts have availability for recurring, after school pick up.

We provide the tools for families to find, message, book and pay Kid Experts directly through the site for after school pick up. So how does it work? Read on about our 3-step process.

1. Create an Account & Get to Know Us

Sign up to Curated Care to get familiar with our platform. You can check out Kid Expert profiles and hourly rates as well as their skills sets and areas of expertise. Review our booking page to see how inputting weekly bookings works. Once you are familiar with the site, email us at [email protected] with (1) your ideal after school schedule (days of the weeks and times needed for picks ups at school), (2) ideal start date, (3) the neighborhood your crew is based in, and (4) a bit about your kiddos (ages/ interests).

While Curated Care is not an agency, we do aim to offer helpful customer service when families are scouting after school options. Email us with your information and we’ll put feelers out to our community of Kid Experts. If we have anyone currently available for your scheduling needs, we’ll send their profile your way.

2. Browse Profiles & Start a Conversation

Check out the profiles we send you to see who looks like a possible fit for your crew. From there, message them directly from their profile to chat in more detail. Next, book one or multiple Kid Experts over the platform for a short one to two-hour session to meet, see their rapport with your family and make sure all is a great fit.

3. Choose Your Kid Experts & Firm Up Schedules

Curated Care allows you to input a recurring after school schedule for up to 3 months. Simply click the dates and times you need and set up your weekly bookings over the platform in a few clicks. All bookings go through the platform. Your Kid Expert will invoice you over the site after each session. There is a $4.00 or 4% service charge on each transaction which covers safety & security features, credit card processing, on-going customer support and continued use of the platform.

Many NYC families have used Curated Care to secure Kid Experts for the school year. Many families have also used us for consecutive schools years. Should your Kid Expert become unavailable at any point, we are here to offer support and help in finding new options to cover your after school schedule. 

“My family has used Curated Care for daily, after-school pick ups for the past three years. It has truly been a game changer for us. All parents know how hard it can be to find reliable, after-school care. Using Curated Care has solved that riddle. The Kid Experts we have used have been wonderful. We recommend Curated Care to people all the time, and always hear back that they had a great experience.”

"Curated Care has been an absolute dream for me and my family. Prior to using Curated Care's services, I either had to reply on references from friends or other parents in the neighborhood or go through very expensive placement services. Curated Care has literally been a life saver! You're beyond amazing and helpful when I reached out asking about if you had any sitters who would be willing to sit for the entire school year. What we got was an amazing sitter who my children love! I am confident that I'll be back in touch in August for another sitter for the 2019-2020 school year. Curated Care is hands down the best service available to parents in Manhattan right now! I can't say enough great things about your company other than thank you, thank you, thank you for coming up with an easy to use site which offers highly accomplished sitters who each offer different talents."

“Curated Care was so important to my family! We found a regular sitter who worked with our complicated schedule. She is warm, fun, smart and very reliable. She’s become part of our family. I spent so much time interviewing other sitters and I was overwhelmed by the choices—no one seemed to fit our family. When I started working with Curated Care, I loved that they had vetted the sitters and I could find one whose interests aligned with ours.”
