Hosting a Party? TLC can Help!

As the holiday season begins, a lot of families start hosting parties. However, we know that hosting a party alone can be a lot of work. That’s why we want you to know how our TLC for Kids also provides party helpers for busy parents and families.

Our party helpers can do numerous things. Typically our party helpers arrive early and help you set-up you. Then, whatever type of party you may be having our party helpers work a buffet table keeping food stocked, serve dinner, help guests with seconds, or top off drinks. Then, our party helpers stay after the party is over to help with cleanup. We also have party helpers that can work as a bartender if needed. A lot of our party helpers have previous serving experience, so you can be confident that our party helpers are well-prepared to help you host the best holiday party.

Not only do we want to take the stress off of the hosting experience by providing workers to help you cook, serve, and clean, but we also have caregivers that can provide child care during your party. When working a party, our caregivers bring games, arts-and-crafts, and other activities for the children to enjoy so they will be occupied while their parents enjoy the party.

Let TLC for Kids take the stress out of your holiday party planning by providing you with the help you need. Call us today at (314) 725-5660 or visit us online to book your party helpers!

How to enjoy Art Basel if you are traveling with children

We all know the excitement and energy that comes to Miami when Art Basel is in town. The question that often arises is “what about my children?” After all, you are travelling to Miami, land of fun and sun, and your children should be able to join you and enjoy the weather and culture of Miami. On the other hand, visiting any of the Art Basel Exhibits such as Context, Art Miami, Red Dot, Aqua, and the many other venues can be a stressful to say the least if you must visit with a  young child.

Not only can the focus on children distract you from truly observing and enjoying all of the wonderful creations on display, but with toddlers and active youngsters we are also left to worry about them wildly running around and potentially putting their hands on pieces of work which they probably shouldn’t.

A solution that many visitors to Art Basel have found in the past is to contract with an agency to provide in-room sitters at your hotel. TLC For Kids has an array of fully vetted and loving caregivers who can come to your hotel to entertain and safeguard your children while you focus on your Art Basel touring.

This approach allows the best of both worlds as you can spend some time enjoying the fun of Miami with your children but still have the opportunity to browse your favorite exhibits without distraction or worry. Art Basel and Children go together well when you add a little bit of TLC caregiving to the equation.

It’s easy to book a TLC Miami hotel babysitter. Simply visit tlcforkids.com. A TLC representative will contact you immediately to assign and confirm an experienced and fully qualified sitter who will have fun with your children and set your mind at ease.
