When you come to Bozeman for a wedding, you don’t want to worry about how your kiddos will handle the overwhelming demand of a late night, a variety of loud noises, the ubiquity of breakable items, or an abundance of new people. You might also be headed for festivities designated for adults-only, but you don’t want to (or can't) leave the young ones behind at home.
This is Your Lucky Day
Fortunately for this type of predicament here in Bozeman, there is a childcare answer for weddings: Big Sky Sitters. Their superpower is having qualified sitters—certified in CPR/First Aid, interviewed by the agency and vetted with a background check—come straight to your hotel room to entertain the littles. The service connects trusted contract sitters to visiting parents in need of childcare. It’s finally time for you to get out and party it up just a bit, knowing the little ones are in the best of hands.
Here's How it Works:
Their sitters are all privately contracted through Big Sky Sitters, so just follow these steps to reserve yourself some free time for that can't miss wedding.
Step 1: Fill out the Reservation Form
Your time is valuable, so the Big Sky Sitters booking process is designed to be as simple and efficient as possible. This online process doesn’t involve a lengthy booking call during business hours or a faxed waiver (this is the 21st century, after all). On the Big Sky Sitters website, just fill out the brief reservation form with information about you and your kiddos. Be sure to note the hotel you’re staying in and any special needs your kids have.
Step 2: Pay the Reservation Fee
Follow the instructions to pay the reservation fee ($25 or $30 depending on whether you’re booking an evening or a day) via PayPal. Once that’s taken care of, you’re on to Step 3.
Step 3: Receive Your Confirmation
Your confirmation will be delivered straight to your inbox, introducing you to your sitter. You’ll see a bio, pic and contact info to get to know your sitter. The contact info is your BFF because that’s your next step.
Step 4: Contact Your Sitter Directly
Call, text or email your sitter directly to get to know them, giving them any extra details they need about how to find you or what to bring with them. You can chat with them a little and set your mind at ease knowing that you’ll have a great match for your kids’ care. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Step 5: Go Have Fun
Weddings are all about celebrating love, and you can chill knowing your little loves are in the best possible hands. Raise a glass, and dance it up without a worry. Because they’re back at the hotel partying it up in their own way—probably with board games, snacks, and crafts.
Step 6: Pay Up
When it comes time to pay your sitter, grab some cash or write a check and take care of it before they leave. Don’t worry about figuring out the right amount or awkwardly asking how much to pay—the hour minimums break it down in your confirmation email. Say goodbye with a smile, and you can give your babes a kiss goodnight, kick off your heels and snuggle up.
That wasn’t hard, was it? When it comes to fab parenting, we know you have it on lock. Big Sky Sitters is just another tool in your arsenal of kick-ass awesomeness that can let you have the best of all worlds.
