Parent/Nanny Mixer

Parent/Nanny Mixer

Finding a quality nanny, babysitter, or caregiver can be difficult! From availability to reliability and trust, there is much to consider when making the delicate decision to have someone else care for your child. Likewise, many qualified Nannies rely on word-of-mouth to hear about new jobs, and would like to work more hours. 

At this event, we bring these two groups together to chat, mingle, and enjoy refreshments. Nannies bring their availability, experiences, and resumes and Parents come prepared with questions and expected duties for this "Speed Dating" format. 

Everyone will walk away with tons of new possibilities, as well as access to an Exclusive Facebook Group to keep the networking going!  

Parents, register here

Nannies/Babysitters, register here

  • Please note: we do not screen for parties who want only full time or part time positions.  In the past, we have heard that many families are hiring only part-time help, and that many nannies/sitters are seeking full-time help.  Please approach the event with an open mind; you never know what connections you will make and how they may be useful to you later!

  • Due to capacity limits, this will be an adults-only event, no children allowed.

  • No refunds will be issued after January 16th.

New York Life- "Free Child ID" Event

New York Life will be at PlayLab on December 8th from 12pm-4pm to provide FREE Child ID's to the community!

Record your child’s vital statistics and important medical information in one convenient, safe place, in case of an emergency.Having a Child ID will give the parent or guardian peace of mind knowing that should anything ever happen to their child, they will have an ID with vital information to distribute to the local authorities.  

Child IDs are created using the EZ Child ID System, the nation’s most comprehensive digital fingerprinting child identification system. Created with help from the National CHIP foundation and law enforcement officials, this system ensures that the digital fingerprints meet industry standards by capturing all vital information required by the Amber Alert system. In only 3 to 5 minutes, a Child ID card is printed for each parent or guardian free of charge. Child ID cards feature a child’s photo, fingerprints, contact information, and other pertinent data needed by the police in case of an emergency.  

**No child’s information or pictures are electronically retained. All data is automatically erased upon printing the Child ID. Please note that this is NOT a sales pitch of any kind. It’s just a service being provided to local families, and New York Life has been doing events like these in communities across the nation for numerous years  **
