1. How does Project Date Night Work?
We strive to be a “hands-on” and “meet first” childcare referral company. That is why whenever possible we meet with new families in person before the first booking. Exceptions to that rule are last minute booking requests.
We are a membership-based company; each babysitting request requires an active membership which allows our families access to our calendar with available babysitters and booking request form.
2. How can I become a member?
PDN memberships are available through referrals.
If you know one of our families with a membership or one of our babysitters, please send us an email with your information and tell us who has referred you to us. We will contact you shortly!
If that is not the case – please EMAIL US with your information. We will contact you shortly to set up an in-person meeting.
3. I’m not a member – how do I book a sitter?
If you need someone ASAP – CALL US!
Otherwise, please EMAIL US with your babysitting request, your information and if possible, information of the person who has referred you to us. We will contact you shortly!
4. How do I cancel my booking with Project Date Night?
All cancelations must be made over the phone (including text). There is no fee when canceling ahead of time, with at least 24h notice. Cancellations with less than 24h notice will be billed a fee of $25.
Cancellations with less than 12h notice will be billed our four-hour minimum ($80).
5. Can I cancel my membership?
Memberships are non-refundable but can be canceled (or transferred) at any time.
6. Can I interview PDN sitter before I book?
Every babysitter at Project Date Night is thoroughly checked. We only work with people that we know, and we always conduct in-person interviews with every new team member. We do understand that keeping your children safe is your priority as parents; that is why we do arrange in-person as well as phone interviews (in the case of last minute booking requests) with our caregivers.
7. Do I have to pay for membership to book a babysitter with Project Date Night?
Yes – we are a membership-based company. Becoming a member gives our families 24/7 access to our available babysitters; We work only with highly qualified nannies and babysitters. Every caregiver who works with us has had their references checked and is CPR, and First Aid certified.
8. My child is sick, can I still get a babysitter?
Project Date Night strives to accept 100% of booking requests we receive as we do not like saying NO to our families.
Unfortunately, sometimes we have to refuse. We cannot accept a booking if your child is ill and contagious as we cannot risk spreading that illness. Safety of numerous families we work with on a daily basis as well as our own safety and our families at home – is of tremendous importance to us.
To be more specific:
YES – we will accept your booking
– ear infection,
– a runny nose,
– strep throat – only if your child already started antibiotics;
NO – we will not accept your booking
– stomach viruses,
– pink eye
– virus Coxsackie ( Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease)
– any other illness that can be easily spread;
