Kid Care Cafe

So here’s a neat idea! A new business, Kid Care Cafe, will actually bring group childcare to your home or event.  It’s a flat $15 per child at the event, and I can totally see doing this for my next big game night or BBQ so that the parents can enjoy their time with grownups, but not have to worry about having their children with someone they don’t know off-site.  Weddings, business parties, galas, charity events, I could see this being a really useful service! 
From their website:
Instead of staying home from an event because you don’t have childcare, why not bring the kids along too? We understand this tough choice that parents often make – miss out on being social with your friends OR find a sitter and go out! We want you and your friends to go out (or stay in) while we tend to the kids. We want your kids to have fun, make new friends, and be safe. We’ll make sure that happens. 
 I haven’t had a chance to meet the owner yet, but she’s having a special kick-off event Saturday, September 15th from 3-5pm at the NZone in Chantilly (14550 Lee Road, Chantilly VA) with free food, games, raffles, prizes, face painting and music.  I think this is definitely one to check out if you’re constantly in need of childcare! I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback if you use them, too!

As a reminder, does not endorse any childcare provider.  Parents should meet with any potential babysitters, daycare providers, preschools, etc. and use their best judgement and personal discretion before leaving their children with anyone.
