Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Do you offer overnight care?
Yes. Some of our sitters offer overnight services.
If my child’s daycare is closed, can you help with that temporary coverage?
Yes. We offer temporary coverage when daycares/schools are closed for teacher work days/holidays, etc.
How far in advance do I need to book?
The earlier, the better! If you know you will need a sitter for an anniversary or birthday celebration, book early. We sometimes can accommodate last minute requests. Friday and Saturday evenings book up quickly.
Do you offer multi family sitting services?
Yes. If you want to gather a few friends or family members to share the cost, we can give you a quote.
Will you travel to my local hotel to watch the children there?
Yes. We have traveled to various hotels to accommodate not only moms temporarily here on vacation/visiting family and needing a MommyDazzle Mom, but moms who live locally and need a sitter at a particular venue.
My child has difficulty separating, how do you handle that?
We are moms ourselves and very familiar with handling this natural and common reaction. Every parent fills out an information form for us so we can come prepared to not only engage your child in developmentally appropriate activities, but to bring a few items that may help the transition.
My child had specials needs, do you have experience with that?
Most of our MommyDazzle Moms have some experience with special needs.
My child has allergies, do you have experience with that?
Most of our MommyDazzle Moms have experience with children who have allergies.
I have 4 children (including a set of twins) is that something you feel comfortable with?
What’s the hiring process for your MommyDazzle Moms?
Moms who are interested in earning extra income on their own schedule (with or without their own children) can contact us for an application. Once the application, background check and references are complete, an interview is scheduled. Apply Now...
Is there a cancellation fee?
No. As Moms ourselves, we understand that children get ill or unforeseen circumstances arise. Should you need to cancel your appointment, please contact MommyDazzle via email or Facebook and we will cancel. As much advance notice as you can provide is much appreciated.
Do you care for sick children?
No. If your child has a fever, is vomiting, or is still considered to be contagious, we ask that you cancel your appointment so we can keep our own children and families as healthy as possible.
If the MommyDazzle Mom has to cancel because her own children are ill, how is that handled?
If your MommyDazzle Mom needs to cancel, we will do our best to book your appointment with another mom on our team.
Are MommyDazzle Moms able to drive my children to activities or offer pick up/drop off from school?
Yes, if they have a vehicle large enough (and with age appropriate car seats) to safely and legally transport your children.
Is there a time minimum to book the services?
2 hours is our minimum booking.
Are there different rates for different MommyDazzle Moms?
May I request a particular MommyDazzle Mom?
Can I meet my MommyDazzle Mom ahead of time?
Yes. We suggest booking your appointment for 20-30 minutes prior to you needing to leave your home. This gives you a chance to observe your MommyDazzle Mom with your children and go over any last minute additional information that wasn’t included in the document you sent us prior to the appointment.
If I have a change in plans or schedule, who do I contact?
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact MommyDazzle via Facebook or email and we will take care of the cancellation. If you simply need to change the appointment time by 30 minutes or so, please contact your individual MommyDazzle Mom via the provided phone number at time of booking.
How does payment work?
Our MommyDazzle Moms accept cash or check. Some accept PayPal and Venmo.
Do you have families I can talk to as a reference?
