Please note that as of March 13 we will be matching each family with a single caregiver and only accepting ongoing assignments for more than 20 hours/week.

We are continually updating our staffing protocols based on the latest CDC recommendations. For specific information on how we are keeping our families and caregivers safe, please refer to our FAQs.
The following services and pricing are available for a limited time only (until June 30, 2020).
We understand that during COVID-19 not all families are comfortable having a caregiver or tutor in their home. At the same time, we know that parents need help. That’s why we have developed the following virtual offerings. Get the same gold-standard care from our screened and vetted providers in a virtual format.
Existing clients receive 1 free hour of virtual care. You do not need to be a registered client or live in the DC-area to use these services.
How is homeschooling going? Not great? We get it. Instead of struggling to get through lessons with frustrated kids (and parents), why not hire a virtual teacher or tutor?
