What skills/certifications do your Fun Sitters have?

All of our sitters have professional experience, completed an orientation, background and reference checks and a genuine love for children. Many are teachers, early childhood educators, nannies, camp counselors, day care providers and youth mentors. All leads are CPR/First Aid Certified.

What are your ratios?

Our ratios are higher than the standard daycare or school age program. This allows us to ensure we have enough staff onsite to provide your child with the care they need. For many children, this is the first time meeting our sitters and may need extra care attention.

 1 Baby (6 weeks – 24 months): 1 Sitter
2 Toddlers (2 – 3 years) : 1 Sitter
4 Preschoolers (4 – 5 years) : 1 Sitter
6 School Age (6 – 12 years) : 1 Sitter

 

Can siblings stay together?

Due to our ratios it can throw off the sitter to child balance if younger siblings stay with older siblings. We try hard to accommodate requests as long it maintains the quality of our programs.

How do I register my child?

We encourage parents to register their child beforehand through a personalized link we send customized just for your event! This avoids delays with onsite check in and allows your child to enjoy all our program has to offer much sooner.

What kind of activities do you do with children?

We plan lots of activities to help keep boredom at bay! We love to make slime, engage in interactive group games, story time, crafts, dance, board games and more! We create a fun kids camp for children in our care. Have your own theme or requests? We are more than happy to accommodate.
