We are excited for your upcoming event! We often receive inquiries about our childcare services in reference to weddings, and you will find below the answers to many of your questions. We have several different options for wedding childcare, and we can customize any of these to fit the needs of your guests.
IN ROOM CARE
First, we can send individual caregivers to your guests’ hotel rooms, or you can provide a room adjacent to the reception hall for the childcare. For individual care, let us know the names of the families and how old the children are, and we will reserve sitters for each family. The rates range from $20 to $25 per hour for each caregiver, and we have a four-hour minimum. Payment is in cash, directly to each caregiver, at the end of the evening.
GIVE YOUR GUESTS OUR LINK: Many couples find it simplest to link to our web site - specifically our reservation page - and allow their guests to make their own reservations. The link is http://hotelchildcare.com/make-a-reservation
GROUP CARE STAFFING
If you would like to provide childcare in a room adjacent to the reception hall, we ask that you provide a TV/DVD player in the room, cribs as needed, blankets and pillows, children’s meals, and vendor meals for our caregivers. The rate per caregiver is $25 per hour, and there is the 4-hour minimum. Again, the caregivers should be paid in cash at the end of the time of service. Let us know how many children will be attending and their ages, and we can determine how many caregivers will be needed. Each of our caregivers will bring a bag of their own toys and games appropriate to the ages of the children attending. It is recommended that any crafts or other special activities be provided to the caregivers, and we can take care of supervising them.
FULL SERVICE WEDDING CHILDCARE
If you have more than 10 or 12 children, our Wedding Magic package is a great option. This also takes place in a room adjacent to the reception hall, but we bring in the audio-video equipment, including a full sound system, fun and kid-friendly room decor, lots of toys and games, an activity director, video games, and a secure check-in, check-out system. Our staff wear uniform vests for a more professional look. We ask that vendor meals, meals for the children, cribs (if needed), and pillows and blankets be provided. This package starts at $1,200 for 6 hours (the minimum for the package) for up to 15 children, and payment can be made to our office by check or credit card. Additional children can be added for $80 per child. We have had great success with this package at many San Diego hotels and we enjoy providing an event-within-an-event, especially for the children. Please let us know of your choice, and we will prepare our staff to serve the children. Thank you so much!
For up to 8 children, a suite is the best environment for children for wedding care.
A conference room is a less home-like environment, but with the appropriate furniture, a television (for late evening downtime), and blankets/pillows (can be ordered from housekeeping), it is a good option for slightly larger groups. Our caregivers appreciate your consideration at mealtimes.
