Nanny Mixer

Nanny Mixer

Update: We have reached our quota on nannies and sitters AND parents!  If you'd like to be notified for future events, please send an email to goplaylab@gmail.com

Finding a quality Nanny 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!  More info 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!

Families, register here

Nannies/Babysitters, register here

COLORAMA with Brittany Howell

Facilitated by Brittany Howell, COLORAMA is a mommy + me/ parent + me hands-on sensory & art experience. You and your child will explore the world of color using the five senses, with a fascinating range of everyday objects and materials.

I love watching him get lost in the feeling of the materials and the pride of what he creates. I wanted to create a program where even the youngest of artists (We are all artists by the way!) could get their hands dirty and have fun while exploring with their fellow littles! Painting. Water Play. Yarn. Bubbles. Spaghetti Noodles. Ice Cubes. The possibilities and the fun are endless."

This is a FREE event at PlayLab, included with your admission or membership!  Space is limited up to 12 kids at any one time, first come, first serve.

It will be occupying one of our back rooms, the rest of the space will be open for play as usual.
