Access Controllers

When safety of the children at your event is a main concern and the kids zone is a SoleCARE zone, an access controller is required when you would like to keep the children in a controlled area where parents drop and sign their children into the cordoned-off kids zone. The access controller, completes the child’s name, parents name and contact, as well as allergies, onto the children’s access bands.

Parents also sign indemnity in order to sign children into the zone and when the child wants to leave the parent is called or message to collect their child at the access point. They also ensure the children do not leave the area and are usually. * We do provide  arm bands for the children should this be required at a small additional cost.

Rate: From R 80 per hour depending on the size of the event. Please note in cases of over 50 children attending or a closable gate is not available at the kids zone entrance, 2 access controllers should be booked.
