4 Benefits of Providing Childcare at your Events


Providing on-site event sitting service allows your attendees to enjoy an adult event with peace of mind.

When meetings and events are a family affair, it can be hard to schedule “adults only” seminars or social gatherings knowing that the kiddos can’t stay back in the hotel room. Now, with services such as YourEventSitters in Cincinnati, Ohio, parents can bring the kids along, drop them off with certified sitters in a fun environment adjacent to your venue and enjoy their adult event with peace of mind.

Four benefits of having professional event childcare on-site include:

1. Alleviate stress of guests finding sitters. Searching for sitters in a different town, for a several-day meeting or evening event can cause parents to cancel altogether. Let your attendees know you understand their needs by providing the service of child care. Sitters with Your Event Sitters are FBI/BCI screened, reference checked, First Aid/CPR/AED Certified, 18 years old or older, and have previous child care experience.

2. Increase guest attendance. Without the worry of how the children will be looked after, both parents may attend an event instead of trading turns. Single parents can know with confidence their little one has a place within the event.

3. Guests stay longer. Knowing their children are well looked after, parents can plan to attend more sessions and stay the full length of the meeting or event.

4. Children are just a room away, allowing parents to check on them at any time. Your Event Sitters works with meeting planners at the same venue where the “adults-only” event is. Planners can just reserve a second room nearby the main event space and your attendees can relax knowing exactly where the children are.
