GoNanny, founded by Patrice Darby, is merging childcare with technology in order to create a world where parents do not have to choose between building a strong family and building a strong career. We identify, train, equip, pair, and share childcare providers who desire to operate as a support system for busy families. Through our digital platform, families are paired with a consistent GoNanny and backups, can book out their GoNanny to provide care rides and childcare in 15 minute intervals, and with technology parents are kept in the know providing peace of mind at all times.
