FAQ for Student Subscribers

 

Who can subscribe as a student

BPN offers free one-year subscriptions to local full-time students in middle school, high school, and college who want to look for babysitting jobs on BPN.
  •  Middle school and high school students who are looking for afternoon and weekend babysitting jobs.
  • Full-time college students who are looking for part-time, weekend, and summer jobs. 

What are the benefits of subscribing?

This subscription allows you to:

  • Post to the Childcare listing offering to babysit (only BPN subscribers can read these posts)
  • Read and reply to messages from parents who are looking for a babysitter.  Typically there are around 100 active posts, and you can search them by city, language spoken, and type of post.
  • Optionally receive any of the BPN newsletters mailed to subscribers.

How to subscribe as a student

When you fill out the form to subscribe, we will need the name of your school. Please use "Short Description of Program or Service" to say what your grade or year in school is.  If you are homeschooled you can add that information here.  

  •  Middle school and high school students must provide the name of the school they attend and their grade or year (freshman, sophomore, etc.).
  • Full-time college students must also subscribe with a school email address.

Your subscription will not be approved if we can't tell whether you qualify for a student subscription from the information you give us on the subscribe form. 


Privacy concerns for student subscribers

  • Subscribing to BPN: Your name, email, and other information you provide when you subscribe is not available to anyone but the BPN administrators. Please see our Privacy Policy for details.

  • Posting to the Childcare Listing: Childcare postings can only be viewed by BPN subscribers who subscribed as a parent or as a nanny. These postings are not available to the public. 


Subscribing when you are no longer a full-time student

Once you have graduated you are no longer eligible for the free subscription and you will need to purchase a subscription as a nanny.  Subscribe as a Nanny Here ($35
