Our Story

As busy Perth parents ourselves, we know that life is a balancing act and you need babysitters that are reliable, trustworthy, and available, even at the last minute. Kin’s founders are two expat families in Australia, who didn’t have the usual close family network of grandparents that so many parents can rely on.

Kin makes childcare simple, so with a few taps you can hire trusted babysitters in you neighbourhood. We’ve also eliminated the hassle that comes along with hiring a babysitter, from scheduling to payment, so all that’s left to do is enjoy either date nights, time for yourself or time with friends.
