Ottawa! We’re here — and we’d love to meet you!
Launched in Toronto in 2014, Datenight is the leading web- and mobile- app for connecting parents to experienced, local babysitters in Toronto … and you can’t really launch in Canada without the Nation’s Capital, now can you?
We’ve already interviewed some great Ottawa babysitters and we’ve got some on the Datenight roster from uOttawa and Carleton and Algonquin — long-time babysitters, ECE students, Nannies — and we’d love for you to meet them. Live in Westboro? The Glebe? Nepean? Kanata? Datenight babysitters would love to meet you — and we’re adding more babysitters to the roster each week.
“What??” you say. “This is an APP …. that wants me to leave my kids with a stranger??” No, Ottawa. We’d never want you to do a thing like that.
So yes — we’re a mobile app that helps you find a babysitter. And yes — this is a bit of a crazy application of technology. But no — no one is babysitting for your kids before you meet and approve them. And no — we’re not sending just anyone to babysit.
Since launching we’ve connected tons of parents and babysitters and helped parents take a little break, go to concerts, go to school council meetings, go out for dinner or pick up their kids from school. Maybe you’d like to hit up Bluesfest or the Glebe Garage Sale without your kids or spend a romantic evening at the Tulip Festival.
You don’t have to meet a babysitter. You don’t have to book with a babysitter that you meet. But we think that you’ll want to — because there are great young people on the roster, and everyone needs a break sometimes. Give us a try.
–Sincerely the Datenight Team
