Child Care & Housekeeping During Saratoga’s Track Season

child care housekeeping saratoga trackAnd they’re off! Today is opening day for the 2018 Saratoga Springs horse racing season, and whether you live in the area or will be visiting during this exciting time of year, we have your child care and housekeeping needs covered.

Track season in Saratoga is great for families – the thrilling races, the food, and fun activities are abundant during these six weeks. But we know that sometimes you want some “grown-up time,” especially for the nightlife in Saratoga after the horses have gone to the stables for the night. That’s where we come in. Let us send a professional, experienced babysitter to your home to take care of the kids while you hit the town. Staying at a hotel? Our thoroughly screened caregivers can simply stay in the room with the kids, or at the family’s request, they can chaperone children to local museums and attractions, take them swimming in the hotel pool, see a movie, or grab a bite to eat while you’re enjoying the great restaurants and shopping Saratoga offers.

If you live in town and will be hosting out-of-town guests or throwing a track season bash, we have professional housekeepers to get your house in top form. We’ll clean, organize, and help with running errands and preparing food – whatever you need for a Winner’s Circle-worthy event!

If you need child care or housekeeping during the Fasig Tipton yearling sale, the Whitney, the Travers Stakes, or any of the terrific events during Saratoga’s track season, let us know how we can help. Call (518) 348-0400 or visit our website to learn more.

Capital Region Wedding and Event Child Care

capital region wedding child careWhether you’re hosting or attending a conference, meeting, wedding, or corporate party in the Capital Region, A New England Nanny’s professional team is skilled at expertly addressing the individual child care needs of each event, allowing you and your staff the freedom to focus on other things.

Weddings

When it comes to weddings, one issue that may arise is whether or not children should be invited. While some couples may wish to avoid any screaming tantrums or general disruptiveness that young children may provide, they also know that friends or family members may find it difficult to attend the wedding if they cannot bring their kids. This can make for an awkward and uncomfortable situation.

With A New England Nanny, the happy couple doesn’t have to make that choice! We work with wedding planners, brides, and hotels to ensure that their child care is covered by our experts. Now you can let your guests bring their children to your wedding, comfortable in the knowledge that they are being well-cared for away from your ceremony.

Kid’s Camp Program During Your Conference or Event

kid's camp program during your conference or eventIf your organization is holding a conference or event in the Capital Region or other Upstate areas and employees will be bringing their families, we have the perfect way to keep the kids entertained while your employees fulfill their work obligations.

The mission of A New England Nanny’s Kid’s Camp program is to assist parents who need child care while they attend events and conferences. Kid’s Camp provides children with a unique, interactive and fun-filled event of their own to attend. As with all of our Conference & Event Services, parents will enjoy peace-of-mind knowing that their children are receiving the absolute best care when attending A New England Nanny’s Kid’s Camp. Parents can relax and focus on their ‘grown-up’ event without worrying if their children are well-cared for and entertained.

A New England Nanny’s Kid’s Camp is a service for groups attending conferences and special events in hotels or other venues. Every Kid’s Camp program is individually customized based on your group’s needs. Parents simply register children ahead of time and when the event arrives, they drop children off at the designated location at the scheduled time.

With a service like Kids Camp, Event Planners can increase attendance for meetings and events. Busy parents that would not otherwise be able to attend an event due to lack of child care, can now join in with the knowledge that their kids are safe and having fun, often at the same location as their event.  Our Kid‘s Camp has an Open Door Policy, so parents are welcome to drop in at any time to check-in on their children as desired. Additionally, your event organizers will have input on every aspect of your Kid’s Camp program, because we customize each program specifically for your group’s wishes.

Want to tie your Kid’s Camp theme into your adult event? We can do that! Interested in a specific type of project for your Kid’s Camp, like outdoor recreation or various art projects?
We can do that! Whatever the theme, we’ll provide the age-appropriate activities that keep children engaged and enjoying every minute of Kid’s Camp.

Kid’s Camp programs are open for all children, from 8 weeks of age to 14 years; as well as programs for children with disabilities. Our skilled and professional staff is available
to provide one-on-one care as needed.

Please contact us at (518) 348-0400 for a customized proposal for service.
