Corporate Events

Public | Corporate | Sponsored Event Child CARE

We love working with corporate, public and sponsored event clients who value family as an important segment for their brand. Research shows that providing entertainment for the whole family at events, conferences, training programs, family days, sports events, concerts, launches, promo days etc , increases attendance and enjoyment of your event for parents and children alike, but is shown to improve long term brand loyalty, increases future attendance numbers for annual and regular events and has been shown to positively increase likelihood of brand recognition and loyalty in children in later years in life by up to 80%. Over the years we have catered to events catering from 10 to 4000 children for large multi day events to small events lasting a few hours.

Include turnkey children's entertainment programs that are just as cool as the adult programs with Sitters4U. Motivate participants and entertain your guests, create positive memorable experiences that attendees will love and cherish, possibly for a life time. From research to planning to management, we have all the bases covered.
Our childcare team consists of the same passionate, caring childcare and education support professionals we recruit for private family care placements with a proven track record as dedicated, friendly, energetic, creative, patient, active and nurturing carers. All of our staff have a minimum of level 1 first aid, are experienced to varying levels as required, educated, with mid level and seniors minders having their own vehicles. We additionally offer full event service management doing everything from providing event planning services, compliance consultation, event management, entertainers, and equipment hire.
For events expecting fewer than 50 children on site we encourage children to participate in social distancing aware yet interactive activities, additionally booking entertainment, equipment, decor, catering, planning and kids zone site management.

Legal Considerations

The number of children to carers allowed at an event are regulated by the Children’s Act 38 of 2005 and Child Care Facilities By-law, 2015.

For events requiring partial supervision (Share Care), engaging the children in available activities and monitoring only (with parents present and childminders fulfilling a supervisory role only), where the number of children expected is unknown, we will cater on an activity station basis, a minimum of 2 staff is advised for smaller entertainment equipment, 3 for larger.

As stipulated in the Act,
(a) Children must be separated into the following age categories in separate rooms or physically separated sections or places:

  • Children under the age of 18 months;

  • Children between the ages of 18 and 36 months;

  • Children between the ages of three and four years; and

  • Children between the ages of four and six years

(b) Where a partial care facility provides after care facilities to children of school going age, these children must be kept separate from the children in the above mentioned age groups.

(c) Where more than 50 children are enrolled for a full day or partial care facility, there must be a separate room or place to be used as an office and as a sickbay.

Please Note: Under the current legal limitations we are able to host up to 100 (indoors) or 250 (indoors/outdoors) children on a site for Sole - Care (no parents in a separates childcare zone) or if Share - Care (with parents present) is required, up to 100 (indoors) or 250 (indoors/outdoors) including staff and children may be present at a single venue.
