As a busy mom of 4 children, I certainly know what it’s like to be on the go! There was a time in my life where I could just pick up and take off. Running to the grocery store or grabbing a bite to eat involved the simple act of picking up the keys and heading out the door. Moms, you remember those days, don’t you? Well that was a long time ago! Now the act of leaving of my house with 4 kids – all dressed appropriately, diapers changed, bags packed, boo-boos kissed, sibling fights halted – is a miraculous feat I am suppose to accomplish several times a week or in a day!
Sometimes, we just need help or a small break. Finding a trusted babysitter can be a challenge or lining up schedules with family or friends to care for your little ones when “life happens” may leave you feeling guilty or a bit frazzled. Date night…what is that? If it has been a while since you and your significant other have enjoyed a quiet, peaceful meal (yes, they still exist), you need to get out and now you can! Whatever curve ball life throws at you, Skidaddles is on your team!

So if you need care for just a few hours or all day, part-time, or full-time with flexibility, you must check them out!

You can feel confident knowing the little ones are having fun and learning while you run errands, work, keep appointments, shop, enjoy an evening out, or just relax!

My two boys, Ben (4yrs old) and Charlie (almost 3yrs old) absolutely LOVE going to Skidaddles! In fact at my house, it is kindly referred to as the “Play Place”. I can’t begin to tell how much relief they have provided me as a busy mom to help care for my children when I need to go to doctor appointments, run errands, relax during a hair appointment, or have a long overdue date night with my husband. All available at a moments notice! Whether your needs may be part-time or full-time day care, flexible drop-in hours (like mine), before & after school care or want to give your child a new experience at their upcoming summer camp….you really should contact Skidaddles today at either their Florence or Mason location and take a tour!
