Our Values

 
 

We are passionate about including families in the collective who:

  • Are inclusive to all gender identities & expressions

  • Understand the importance of queer, trans, and gender nonconforming visibility and empowerment

  • Respect domestic work as a profession

  • Practice open lines of communication and, when necessary, renegotiating needs

  • Are considerate of their caregivers' time and labor (emotional & physical)

There are no identity requirements to be a part of Their Kids. We welcome people of any gender identities and sexualities who embody our values.

 

Membership Features

 
 

Their Kids Job Board

A child care job board with gender inclusivity in mind. Whether you’re looking for a full-time caregiver, on-demand babysitters, or a fill-in due to your caregiver catching the dreaded stomach bug your kids brought into all of your lives, our job board accommodates all of your family’s childcare needs.

As a Their Kids member, post your childcare positions directly to the job board for caregivers to browse and apply. Responses from gender inclusive caregivers will come straight to your Their Kids inbox! Depending on your membership level (Starter, Standard, Supporter), you have access to 1, 3, or unlimited job board posts each month. As a “Supporter” member, each of your job posts will be “featured” and pinned to the top of the job board.

 

 

Family Profile

Members create a profile including important and interesting info about their family. Utilize your profile to highlight what’s unique about your family and share what qualities you hope to have in a family-caregiver relationship. Profiles are an important feature that allow caregivers to get an initial sense of who you all are, your parenting vibe, and how they may fit into your home. They also are great for other families to read through, which may lead to supportive online and in-person friendships!

Access Caregiver Profiles

When caregivers apply to your job postings, you’ll be able to read over their profiles alongside their applications. Prefer to search for caregivers in your area instead of posting to the job board? Great! Once you narrow down the caregivers you feel may be a good fit for your family, you may message them directly to introduce yourself and share a bit about your childcare needs.
