Join a KinderPod

Move over staffing agencies and babysitter services. Kinder Outside is the safer way to find and manage your pandemic activity pod.


It's hard enough being a parent when there isn't a crisis.
We manage the overhead related to podding so you don't have to.

A Kinder Way to Pod Together


Communicate securely with your pod members or facilitator via individual and group messages. Avoid uncomfortable miscommunications, keep your pod informed and on the same page with a time-stamped record.


Our scheduling tools ensure everyone knows where and when your pod is meeting. Your facilitator handles logistics to make sure all families in the KinderPod are covered when they need.


Public and private profiles let you share only what you want to share with your pod members and facilitator​. Share behavioral and medical information with your facilitator without compromising your child's privacy.

Trusted Caregivers

We fully vet our facilitators with background, reference, and credential checks. After they are hired as employees, facilitators are covered by our insurance and have access to professional development benefits.

Easy Payments

Manage your billing details from our secure payment portal. A simple monthly subscription means no one has to break out the TI-83 calculator to split babysitter fees.

Share Files, Not Viruses

Easy document sharing for photos, videos, activities and other resources for your pod members. Keep track of Covid-19 waivers and other important information in one place.

Find The Perfect Balance of Flexibility and Consistency for Your Family
