Having little children around at your wedding puts a smile on everyone's face. But it can also be a long day for little ones. It's worth thinking of providing some child-friendly zones and activities for the little people on your big day.
You may want to provide an area with bean bags, books, stickers and simple toys to keep pre-schoolers happy. Some simple crayons and colouring books at the table can work wonders, as can a simple puzzle to keep them amused.
Another idea is to bring in the professionals - perhaps a magician, balloonist or even specific childcare such as a creche. We've teamed up with Tinies, the UK’s leading childcare agency who has launched their mobile crèche service. to give you an idea of what they offer.
Experienced and trained staff will transform any room or area into a fantastic crèche, which is fun, stimulating, and safe. Each crèche has various ‘zones’ that include the Baby Zone, the Snooze Zone and the Active Zone and there is even the option of having your crèche designed to match the theme of your event! This brilliant service can be tailored to your individual requirements, depending on your budget, the age range of the children and the location. Children of all ages can enjoy anything from face painting and jewellery making to field games and fashion shows plus all the toys they could possibly wish for. Guaranteeing your guests have a good time couldn't be easier!
Knowing that your children are in safe hands is vital for any parent, so, rather than running around after the children, relax and enjoy the event in the knowledge that they’re in safe hands. All Tinies staff are qualified, CRB checked, referenced and have a first aid certificate. Ofsted legislation, liability insurance and child safety issues are all taken care of. Tinies works to the legal ratios set by Ofsted who govern childcare, so for babies under 2 years they have 1 carer to 3 babies, children 2-3 years they have 1 carer to 4 children and for children over 3 years they have 1 carer to 8 children.
Prices start from £600 for a Tinies Mobile Crèche for 10 children, prices will obviously vary depending on hours, ages of children and number of childcarers needed. www.tiniescreches.com
