Hello Product Hunt Community!

Trusted was born after some frustrating experiences my wife and I had in finding child care for our daughter. We wanted to build a service, powered by technology, that tackled not just discovery but also eased scheduling and payments. Having built a marketplace before, I know that there is no silver bullet to building trust - so we wanted to offer features during a booking that could aid in helping parents feel at ease - like being able to check-in using a live video stream, or being able to geolocate your provider.

We're also one of the only child care marketplaces to (W-2) employ all our providers, most of who are nursing students. We vet them thoroughly by interviewing them in-person, background checking them, ensuring they are immunized and checking their references. We also meet with them periodically (btw, they all have Slack accounts!)

More about our journey here: https://medium.com/@ai/better-ch...

And we’ll be around all day to answer any questions you may have. Thank you!

I have been using Trusted since my daughter was a newborn -- now she's almost 9 months old. It's been a lifesaver for me. As a new parent without any family nearby to help me, having Trusted in my back pocket has given me at tremendous sense of security. I've used it when we wanted a date night, when my husband has gone out of town and I needed an extra set of hands, and when my nanny got sick and I needed someone last minute to cover for her. All the providers are excellent and are better with my daughter than I am.

Great Idea! How do you plan to extend the service to other locations? Who will check and talk with a potential babysitter?
Do you have a way to protect a babysitter by collecting data about families?

Exciting to see Trusted on ProductHunt. My wife and I have been using the service for the past few months, and the quality of care providers is exceptionally high. So far we have booked 13 different child care providers, and they all have been great. Our concern of rotating sitters has quickly turned into a feature where our son doesn't get attached to a single person.

I like this. My mother has ran a daycare for over a decade, and I have wanted to do something like this but never did it. Thank you for this, nice work!
