Hi Jennifer,

I tried something like that with a group of moms in September. It is called 
the Harvard sitter coop. We did everything : rules, google account with map 
and adresses etc. But I don't know why it never worked. Nobody used it. I 
send you the file with all the details... if you are able to make it work I 
want to be in !
