Who can be a host?

Who are guests?

Momni guests are children. The parent/guardian of a Momni guest needs childcare for any reason, and feels his/her child would be best cared for by a fellow nurturer.

How do I get paid once the connection is completed?

Payment is easy and automatic. At the conclusion of a connection, when the guest is picked up, the parent/guardian clicks “End Connection.” You will be asked to confirm that the connection has ended, and payment will instantly be transferred to your Momni account.

How and when do I pay for the guest visit?

Payment is easy and automatic. When you sign up as a Momni guest, a current, valid credit card is required. At the conclusion of a connection, when you pick up your child, simply open your Momni app and click on the icon “End Connection.” The Momni host will be asked to confirm that the connection has ended, and your credit card will automatically be charged.

May I make recurring bookings?

May I leave special instructions for my Momni?

Absolutely! You may use the communications features within the Momni app and website to reach out to your favorite Momnis and share anything with them!
