We were recently interviewed by A Nanny For You and asked to share our thoughts on childcare at weddings and events. The ladies asked some great questions and I thought I’d share a few of the questions and answers here.
We encourage you to learn more if you’re contemplating childcare at your next event.
Thank you A Nanny For You for interviewing me!⠀
Interview with A Nanny For You:

Supervision of children in attendance is covered: “As with any activity where kids are present, supervision is the most common issue that arises at weddings. The parents want to socialize and enjoy the festivities, and the kids want to run around and not be confined to a seat or specific space. It depends on the parents, their relation to the bride and groom, the venue, but most often my couples would benefit from having an on-site nanny to assist with watching the kids.”
Your guests are able to enjoy the celebration more when childcare is hired! “When my clients have chosen to hire childcare for their weddings, their family and guests get to enjoy the celebration that much more. Everyone is relaxed knowing their little ones are being taken care of; they’re safe and close by should anyone get fussy or need attention. The benefits for me as the event planner are the same, I see my clients relax and that’s worth gold to me!”
Worried that your venue can’t support childcare? We believe Jen when she says that’s not true! While some venues are more ideal then others, any venue can create a space for childcare. “A hotel is a great option because a specific ballroom and/or hotel room could be reserved specifically for childcare. Most venues will have side rooms, or another area that would be great for a kid’s activity, or space for the kids to run around. A venue that might be challenging would be one with no extra space where the entire wedding is essentially in one big room. A quiet corner off to the side would be ideal in that case.”
