I would like to thank Holly and her team for the amazing job they did at our wedding. The day went without a hitch and we had nearly 50 children there! Holly and her team kept all the children very entertained and they seemed to enjoy the whole day too.
Our main aim was to provide a family party for everyone, we have four children and many of our friends have children and it was important for us to have everyone together. With Helping Hands we achieved this! Fantastic service! - Mark Wedding December 2010
It was one of those things that I hadn’t really thought about until we met Holly at a Wedding Fayre and it seemed such an excellent idea, having 9 children at our wedding, and the charge was so reasonable.
We’d booked Dream Childcare for a couple of hours while we sat down for a meal and all the parents said it was such a relief to just sit and enjoy their meal knowing the kids where happy, safe and being entertained. Before Holly and her team arrived the kids where running around making noise and getting under the feet of the poor waiting staff.
As soon as Holly arrived calm set in and within minutes the kids were all sitting down sticking, colouring and playing so nicely.
We can’t thank you enough for your help and everyone thought it was such a good idea, I would recommend Dream Childcare very highly to anyone with children at their wedding. All the best for the future, Sarah and Darren. Sarah Martin Our Wedding October 2010
My husband and I employed “Dream Childcare" in October 2009 for my husband’s 40th birthday party. We had lots of friends coming, some from many miles away, and by being able to bring their children with them meant that they didn’t have to find alternative child care.
Holly and Helen, with another adult, from Dream Childcare looked after 10 children throughout the evening, aged between 2 and 11 years old. They had a range of toys and activities to suit all of these ages (the 10 and 11 year old boys particularly enjoyed playing on the games console.) The children were well supervised and enjoyed themselves. As they were in a room right next door to the party the children were able to come through to eat , but it gave them a chance to enjoy the party away from the noise and crowd.
As the hosts of the party it enabled us to socialize and mingle with our guests without having to worry about our small son, who was more than happy in the “crèche”.
It was definitely excellent value for money as it enables everyone in the families to enjoy themselves.Karen Railton - 40th Birthday party (Bognor Regis.)
I wanted to write and thank you for the fantastic service you provided at our wedding. It was invaluable to us on one of the most important days of our lives. You made the day a lot calmer than it could have otherwise been. The children were entertained and happy rather than bored, restless and unhappy.
When planning my wedding I wanted to invite all of my friends, including those with children, as I wanted to share such a happy event with everybody I loved.
The weddings I have been to, I have seen parents getting stressed and not enjoying the celebrations as much as they should when their children want to run around and talk during crucial moments of the day.I wanted to avoid the parents getting stressed and tried to come up with a solution that would keep all of my guests happy and entertained.
Knowing that children are not used to sitting around for long periods of time and are certainly not going to be quiet the whole time either (no-one can expect that, it’s difficult enough for most adults!) I wanted to organise my wedding in such a way that the children guests could be entertained as well as the adult guests.
I decided to speak with people I knew to see if they had any ideas. They suggested all sorts of things, which went from one extreme to the other. One friend suggested having an
adult only wedding, in order to resolve the problem entirely, another suggested going abroad to get married to avoid having guests at all and another friend told me she had been to a wedding recently where they had enlisted the help of a children’s entertainer.
After much deliberation and my original wishes taken into consideration I found you and set the wheels in motion for you to join us on our big day.
I would recommend your service to anyone, especially someone like me, who wants all of their nearest and dearest there to celebrate with them but also wants all of their guests to be happy and entertained. Louise Egerton Wedding April 2010
If your thinking of having kids at your wedding i think the service Dream Childcare provides is invaluable.
I thought the service was also incredibly good value for money as-well. Holly and Helen took all the stress away for me before and on the big day. On your wedding you have so much to think about it was fantastic knowing that the kids were in safe hands and i could be rest assured that it was going to be fun for them, Holly and Helen were a massive part in the coggs of a wheel that made my wedding day the best day of my life.
We had 15 kids at our wedding from 5-14 years old and they were all so well behaved; I really do put this down to Holly and Helen who kept a watchful eye on them all. We had an evening cocktail party and the kids almost had a whole other seperate party for themselves.
Holly and Helen brought loads of games and fun things for them all to do - they even got the kids to do creative stuff and presented me with a lovely card at the end of the evening. All my nephews and neices thought they were great
. Thank you girls, you really were dream childcare and i think your service was FAB! Victoria Wedding January 2010
We were so impressed with your care of our baby Poppy (7 months), on Bex and Matt's wedding day. You provided a superb service all day and whilst being highly professional, you were approachable, caring and friendly to both the children and adults. Your experience shone through, as you clearly knew how to care for children in a range of ages and set up a fantastic facility in one of the rooms to not only stimulate them, but also give them a lovely experience while their parents were partying!!
You follwed the routine we gave you to the letter and in so doing, Poppy was confident and happy all day. She barely noticed when we checked on her!!!
The bedtime routine was also carefully followed and she went down without any fuss - just amazing. What was so fantastic was how you worked in partnership to support the children in your care, and that knowing there were two of you gave us real peace of mind.
Once again, we were so impressed with the level of service you gave and would highly recommend you to others for similar functions.
It made such a difference knowing our little girl was close enough that we could be there in an instant, but so well cared for, we could let our hair down and have a lovely time with complete peace of mind. It was one of the first events my husband and I had enjoyed since having her.Thank you, Jeannete Friends wedding June 2009
