    "Helping Busy Parents"

    Being a parent is a hard task. Sometimes, you just need a little help.

    KangaDo Parent Organizer is an organization application for busy parents that allows them to create a usable schedule and make daily life easier.

    First of all, sign up and enter your data and your children's. After that, you will be able to start using the app as a whole and discover the useful features it offers. For example, you can organize car pools, child care tasks, playdates and ask general requests in a very simple way.

    Invite your family and babysitters, as well as other parents and ask for their help. You will also get to help them whenever they need something, as the interface makes everything easy and comfortable.

    In addition, in order to create a better tool to help you manage your daily life, you will receive reminders and notifications whenever it's your turn to do something. The iOS version (soon it will be available for Android), allows users to synchronize the tasks with the calendar, which is a highly important feature.

    DoLightful, Inc is the developer of KangaDo Parent Organizer, a well-designed and highly usable tool for busy parents, an application which is based on a great idea and is effective and helpful.

    Safe rides and childcare for kids, from preschool to high school, 7 days a week. Kango - for families going places!

    Kango helps you get your kids where they need to go:
    ● Book a driver to take your daughter to ballet while you are on a business trip
    ● Set up a carpool to take your son and his three friends to soccer practice every Thursday
    ● Have a Kango driver take you and your toddler to preschool before you go to work
    ● Get a sitter to bring the kids home from school and get them started on homework
    ● And more!

    With Kango, book rides and babysitting from pre-screened drivers and sitters. All Kango drivers and sitters have at least 3 years of childcare experience, and have passed our comprehensive screening process (including fingerprinting, background checks and DMV checks) and training to ensure they can provide the best, safest service possible. You can even request your family's favorite drivers, or interview them in advance.

    Kango's Rides and Care service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles, CA.

    As featured in Dow Jones Marketwatch/WSJ:
    “Uber-for-kids services like Kango are growing, [...] A similar service to Uber but reserved solely for kids? Totally cool. That is what 8-year-old [Kango passenger will tell you.”

    From a mom:
    “All in all, the service has been a godsend for our family (two kids, two adults who work full time). We plan to use it even more as the kids grow older and their interests diverge, necessitating more parent time driving to their different activities.”
    ~Claudia A.


    Kango gives you access to an incredible selection of pre-screened drivers and sitters. All you need to do is:

    1. Schedule a ride, childcare or both
    Kango supports one-time or recurring requests, and provides boosters or car seats as needed. Booking in advance is recommended. Kango is the only service that accepts same-day requests as well.

    2. See who can help
    We’ll reach out to our pool of caregivers in your area and find the best person to fulfill your request. You can request your preferred driver(s) or meet one ahead of time.

    3. Stay in touch every step of the way
    Enjoy real-time updates from your driver or sitter or track their location in the app. Or call them directly.

    Start using Kango today. When you’re ready to book a Kango driver or sitter, sign up and request what you need. Prices vary according to the type and duration of services required.


    “I chose to use Kango because it is the most convenient way to get around with a toddler. The drivers are screened and they have their own car seats which saves a lot of hassle.”

    "I work full time so I thought I'd have to skip opportunities for my kids that are off site from school/after-school finding out about Kango was great! My son, who is often tentative with new people and processes, is completely comfortable and enjoys the rides (and story times!) with the driver."
    ~Leah G.

    "I love being a part of the Kango family, especially driving the little ones ...I can interact directly with parents in the app and schedule my rides ahead of time. It's an app with a human touch."

    “Having two teenage kids of my own, I drove my kids to school myself for years...I do this for Kango now and it puts a smile on my face. I'm grateful to be able to continue this very important work.”

    "They say it takes a village to raise a child, but an app called Kango is bringing that idiom into the 21st century [… ] Kango is going to make parents' lives much easier."
    --Business Insider

    "Parents will like this app, but kids who used to get stuck waiting for a ride home will love it." --Techcrunch
