Founded in Birmingham, the app was launched in 2017 as a way to connect Birmingham families with available and vetted babysitters. Since then, the concept has taken off, and the company is ready to expand within the state.

With this relaunch, the app will offer service to the Huntsville and Mobile area. Wyndy simplifies the process of sourcing, booking, and paying vetted babysitters.

“Wyndy is proud to be founded and headquartered in Birmingham, AL since our launch in 2017! The city of Birmingham has been a huge part of our company’s success and we are excited to grow even more and provide an easy way for parents in Huntsville and Mobile to connect with vetted and background-checked sitters!

Missy Polhemus, Wyndy CEO

This service also offers its sitters — college students — a flexible way to earn an income as they balance pursuing a degree while also gaining valuable experience that can transfer to their post graduate careers. In fact, students in the Birmingham market alone have earned more than $8 million through the app since it was launched in 2017.

Coming to Huntsville

As Huntsville continues to grow, the need for services grows as well — and that includes child care services. In a 2022 State of Child Care Survey, Wyndy Parents identified that their needs for flexible child care options have only increased since the pandemic and they see that need continuing.

The key to using this babysitting app is that it not only simplifies the process of finding a trusted sitter, it also allows parents to work with hundreds of providers based on the needs of their family.

Interested parents as well as students attending school in the Huntsville and Mobile markets can find out more about this new babysitting service by visiting www.wyndy.com and downloading the app through the Apple and Android app stores.
