Free Childcare by Trusted Friends
The Babysitting Co-op is a network of CLC families who exchange free babysitting.
Through an online based system, parents can request and accept specific babysitting times. Unlike a one-on-one babysitting swap, members are not obligated to return sits to a particular member. Parents may fulfill and request sits according to their own schedule with anyone in the Co-op.
The Co-op is perfect for parents who like to have dependable adults watch their children, meet other families in the community, and save money.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Co-op works on a point system, where each member family starts out with 30 tokens each worth 15 minutes of babysitting per child.
You spend tokens when someone babysits for you, and you earn tokens when you babysit for someone else. Keep them in a safe place.
To find a caregiver, you may submit a request using the closed Facebook group or by an email to the group. Members submit their availability and you choose who will watch your children. You may also directly contact someone using our on-line directory Elexio. This takes place in your home or a mutually agreed upon location (not at CLC).
HOW DO I JOIN?
1) Complete registration form below.
2) Submit your background check form to Lyn VanTol.
3) Pay a $10 fee to be used toward token expenses.
Make checks payable to Covenant Life Church.
4) Attend the meeting at 10:15 on Oct. 14 in room 2.
Once you complete the very brief enrollment process, feel free to sit back and observe how the Co-op works. When you’re ready, jump in and make plans to go out on the town!
