    Your childcare backup plan


    Is your daycare closed when you have to work? Does your nanny need a day off? Do YOU need a day off? CozyKin is here to help! Our new service, Care On Demand, sends fully-vetted CozyKin Nannies to your home on the days you need help with your little one. It’s care when you need it.

    Are you new to our service? Let us tell you a little about us...

    Boston Area Nanny Shares

    Our long-term care service arranges nanny shares that provide the personalized care and convenience of a nanny with the structure and socialization of a daycare. Care on Demand is our short-term care option that provides the same quality care in your home (just minus an automatic best friend for your little one).

    Specialized in Care for Newborns & Toddlers

    Our long-term care focuses on vital early learning and development. All CozyKin Nannies have early childcare experience and love helping littles ones thrive. While our full-time care focuses on infants and toddlers, CozyKin Nannies have experience caring for a wide age range of children.

    Fully Vetted Nannies

    All CozyKin Nannies are full-time employees that have passed rigorous screening, interviews as well as extensive background and reference checks. Our top-quality nannies have CPR and First Aid training and are trained on our early education and baby-led learning curriculum.

  • The Details


    Care On Demand is available Monday through Friday from 7:30am - 6:30pm. Care is subject to availability and must be booked at least three hours in advance of care. See our FAQs below for more information.


    Care On Demand provides the same great care as our Nanny Shares because care is provided by a qualified and engaging CozyKin Nanny. But because Care On Demand is short-term care, we won’t be able to guarantee any formal learning and development curriculum. However, all CozyKin Nannies love engaging little ones in play and activities so the day is sure to be fun!

  • How Care On Demand Works

    1. Submit your request

    Fill out our request form letting us know your childcare needs and complete your family profile, which outlines everything we need to know about your little one (allergies, sleep schedule, etc)

    2. Coordinate with the CozyKin team

    Once we have your information, our team will check availability and give you a call to coordinate the details.

    3. Start care!

    A CozyKin Nanny will be briefed on your family and sent to your home.

    4. Repeat!

    Your family profile will be kept on record with our team so you can skip straight to coordinating care the next time around.

  • FAQs

    How much does Care on Demand cost?

    • $25/hour

    Does Care on Demand accept sick children?

    • No, unfortunately we cannot commit to caring for sick children. We will be unable to care for children who have a contagious sickness or have shown cold signs in the past 12 hours. ​

    Is there an age requirement for children?

    • We can care for children ages 0 - 9.

    • Our full-time service focuses on infants and toddlers, but because CozyKin Nannies have experience caring for a wide age range of children we wanted to offer more options for short-term care. We know the need for last-minute care doesn’t have an age limit!
