How many sitters I need?

Great Question! Here are the ratios of caregivers to children we recommend (see table below)

Age of Child Number of Children per Caregiver
Under 18 mo 1
18 mo - 4 yrs 3
5 - 7 yrs 5
8 - 11 yrs 6
12+ yrs 7

Number of Caregivers Calculator

If decimal is greater than .3, we recommending rounding up to another caregiver

Under 18 mo + 18 mo - 4 yrs + 5 - 7 yrs + 8 - 11 yrs + 12+ yrs = 0 caregivers

How much space do I need to allocate?

When looking for a space to host, we recommend having a space that can accommodate:

1. 2.8 square meters (30 square feet) of open space per child

2. Washrooms nearby
