Like-minded parents working together to raise children.

The current childcare situation? Australian families spend on average $500 per week on childcare, which accounts for a whopping $22,000 per year. Yes, there are Government subsidies but the cost is still outrageous. Parents need these savings for mortgage repayments, house renovations, holidays and other living expenses.

Australian families shouldn’t have to settle for this. Securing a spot in safe and dynamic child care should not be a ‘maybe’. Being able to afford childcare costs should not be a ‘maybe’. Enter KidNest – affordable childminding that helps children thrive.


KidsNest is an App that gives you the opportunity to connect with parents in your local area to create a Nest. Every parent in this Nest bands together to help look after everyone's kids in each other's houses once a fair schedule has been created. A Nest of 5 families will allow each mum or dad to have 4 days off per week to get back to work and earn money for the family.

It’s all about like minded individuals connecting and supporting each other, so you can save money while providing safe care for your child. As the saying goes, ‘It takes a village to raise a child’ and KidNest wants to help you find and make your village.


What does a day in a Nest look like?

Everyone drops off their kids at the designated minder’s home and goes about their day. The minder and the kids will be gently guided by activities developed by educational experts available through the app. At the end of the day, parents come and pick up their kids, ready for home time. The KidNest app includes tech which allows for parents to monitor and track their kids, along with a secure messaging service.

Extensive safety screenings are part of the sign-up process so you will have the peace of mind that every parent, family member or minder involved in your ‘Nest’ has successfully passed the keep safe process.


This easy-to-use app is a fantastic way to help mums and dads be proactive in getting back into the workforce, earning money and furthering their careers.

The KidNest App is set to launch in early September so please visit their website here for further information and to sign up.

Tyde is a free App that allows you to connect all of your family's medical information so that you have everything you need in the palm of your hand, constantly updated and always ready.
