who’s in your village?
Komae is the easiest way to coordinate all of your sitting needs for both your kids and your pets within your circle of trusted friends, family, and paid sitters. We call this your village. In fact, Komae (ko’-may) means village in Greek! Whether it’s a sit-swap with your friend, a favor from Grandma & Grandpa, or cash to the teenager next door, Komae’s got it handled.
Komae takes the old school babysitting co-op and puts it in a modern day app. Exchange babysitting and petsitting with friends using Komae’s point system. The average Komae Swapper saves $75 a month!
Angels are people who you trust to watch your kids or your pets but who do not need sitting themselves. The most common example is Grandma & Grandpa! No point exchange or cash necessary, just a simple favor with no strings attached.
For the times when your sit swappers and angels aren’t available, paying a sitter is still an option. If you’ve got them in your village, you’re just a click away from booking them on Komae and paying them at the door.

Fill Out Your Profile
Think of your profile like a digital sitter info sheet.
List your kids’ favorite foods, allergies, nap schedules. List the breed and habits of your pets. Anything to help your friends and sitters give the best care to your family.
Add your address so they can navigate to your house, your phone number so they can easily call or text, and an alternate contact in case they can’t reach you.
This information is kept 100% secure. It’s only visible to people on your hand-selected friends list.
Build a Village
Your Village is your circle of trust. Your people.
Your network on Komae is centered around you. Only those you personally invite into your Village can see your profile and your posts. This includes your sit-swappers, angels, and paid sitters; whoever you trust to watch your kids and pets.
