YOUR CHILDREN DESERVE EXPERIENCED CARE.
We work tirelessly to find excellent and experienced caregivers for families. We know that childcare is not one-size-fits-all and that finding the right person is critical to your peace of mind. That’s why our approach is personal and very hands-on. We’ve been there. We understand you. And we’re thankful to be able to help.
“I know firsthand how challenging it can be to find quality childcare here in Vancouver. With three children of my own, trusting a caregiver can be the key to my work-life balance. I started Kidcoover to help parents like me and parents like you. We take pride in building a level of trust between families in Vancouver and the childcare community. That means carefully selecting our caregivers and understanding your needs prior to the first booking. There is no cost to join Kidcoover and we look forward to welcoming you and your family.” – Marla Brock, Founder & CEO
