Baby Sitter

New for 2018 at Blair’s Holiday Parks!

 

At Blair’s we know that you are here to enjoy a relaxing break on the North Coast. Whilst we have events and day time activities in situ to ensure the perfect family holiday and a #happystay at Blair’s- we also recognise that you parents might need some quiet time for a romantic meal in town- or just a couple of hours away from the kids! That’s why, this summer, we’re introducing Blair’s Babysitting Service!

 

How It works- it really is quite simple

  1. Get in touch

We have an online form for you to fill out- so that we can cater for your needs and check availability. You can also email babysitting@blairsholidayparks.com or call 028 7082 3537 and our reception team will take your requirements and pass this onto our Babysitting Service Team.  To match you up with your onsite babysitter- we’ll need to know when you need us, how long you might be out for, the number of children and of course, some details about your child, as well as your contact details.

 

We’ll get back in touch

If we have availability, we’ll confirm with either a phone call or e-mail and we hope to respond to you within 24 hours- depending on the time and day of your enquiry. When we get in touch, we’ll give you your babysitter’s details and re- affirm all requirements.

 

  1. Payment

We will take pre- payment based on the initial number of hours you suggested for our babysitting service- should you be later than expected- extra charges will then be taken. Our babysitting service is competitively priced at £8 per hour per babysitter.  We will require valid credit/debit card details to secure your booking.

 

  1. Notice Period

We would advise you give us as much notice as possible so that we can ensure sitter availability for the evening. We would recommend at least 2- 5 day’s notice to avoid disappointment.  Shorter notice may be fulfilled- but only subject to babysitter availability

 

  1. Our Babysitters

If your child is part of our Blair’s Youth Programme, is a regular in our shop and at the Hub- then chances are they will know their Babysitter- which is great for you parents and an extra comfort to your little ones. Our bank of babysitters are actually our Blair’s Bears and Blair’s Junior Youth Workers. All our Youth Workers have experience in caring for children and all have under gone enhanced access NI checks. We will follow all child care adult to child ratio guidelines as deemed appropriate by the NSPCC

 

  1. Location & Longevity

We cover all Blair’s Holiday Park locations and our babysitters will come to you at your holiday home/ hire van/ Camping Cabin- to ensure that your children are comfortable in their surroundings. Please note that our babysitting service does not cater for those using our Campsite.  To ensure that everyone receives an optimum level of service we would cap our babysitting service at 4 hours max in one sitting and would always ask that our parents/guardians return to their holiday home/ hire van  and/ or camping pod before 12 midnight.

We aim to run our babysitting service week nights and weekend evenings throughout July and August; as well as weekend evenings in September.
