Carefully is an easy way to build a network of parents you know and trust to share care and provide mutual aid, redefining the traditional ‘care circle’ model for the digital age. Carefully understands finding, organizing, and paying for childcare can be a challenge. We’re connecting parents with their friends, families, and communities to create a safe and free option for childcare that’s fun for the kids!
Carefully is designed to expand your network beyond your inner circle and build connected communities of parents, neighbors, small businesses and local organizations who can support each other when they need it most by sharing care, learning together, or simply having a little more fun.
Families come in all shapes and sizes and you are the heart of our community. Stay-at-home parents, working parents, essential workers, single parents and other caregivers have their unique challenges but also the ability to support each other through the common struggles and joys of everyday life with kids.
Whether you call it a pod, a bubble, a quaranteam, a group, or a co-op, Carefully supports you through a private space to connect. We understand that people are focused on new solutions to help them through the changing dynamics of school and childcare, and we’re working hard to make sure our platform supports these needs too.
We partner with small businesses to engage with their existing communities and neighborhoods to expand their reach, grow their business, and give back to the Carefully community through deals and discounts that reward our members for their contributions.
Your kids get to play with friends they know and love.
While the kids are entertained, cross one more thing off your list, or just treat yourself.
Easily connect and coordinate with other parents (built with busy parents in mind).
We’re at a pivotal moment in society where our government, employers, and families from different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, and socio-economic classes have recognized that we are in the midst of a childcare crisis, and are calling for change. The cost of childcare has long been unsustainable for many families, and we’re finally seeing an increase in the pace of change and innovation due to the current crisis. Carefully sees this as an opportunity to more deeply integrate a sharing economy into the culture of childcare, helping families reconnect with and support their communities, establishing a cost effective childcare solution, and providing opportunities for individuals and small businesses to thrive.
“It used to be that people were born as part of a community, and had to find their place as individuals. Now people are born as individuals, and have to find their community.”
More than 50% of working parents are currently without childcare, and one in five working parents said either they or their partner are considering leaving the workforce to care for their children.
