Crawlers and toddlers are fabulous...and fabulously exhausting.
What most parents could use is a calm meal in a
restaurant while babysitters entertain + teach your
kids in the restaurant's private banquet room
Breathe Easy! Your Prayers Have Been Answered: Drop Off + Dine In®
DROP + DINE IS AVAILABLE WHEN YOU NEED IT.
Ideal for stay-at-home parents who need a couple hours off. Get a group together.
Get two or more families together and enjoy a calm meal with your friends while your children play, eat and are entertained by the parent P-L-A-Y babysitters in the restaurant's private banquet room. While you relax, laugh and have a leisurely meal - lunch, dinner or brunch - your kids will enjoy a mini-art class, learn to count to twenty in a different language, have a fun little drama class or play trains with our sitters.
The kids always have a good time.
It's What Both Parents and Children Want!
** Your Third Babysitting Experience is FREE! **
(Your babysitters won't say, "This one's on me!")
ONE MORE THING...
For every 3 families who Drop + Dine (with or without you) through your referral,
You'll Also Receive Your 10th Babysitting Experience for FREE!
each family receives a deluxe gift bag with cool items like beauty products, candles, coffee, t-shirts for your kids, toys...yada yada, yada
Get Some Friends Together For a Tablespoon of Relaxation
That's Right...It's Sitter-Worthy!
We'll Try To Accommodate with 6 Hours Notice, But...
Please Shoot For 12 - 24 Hours Advance Notice
(our babysitters are very busy, so we respectfully insist on a 12-hour cancellation policy in order to pay them)
How Much Do We Love These Endorsements!!!
"A friend invited me to dinner at Fresh in Tribeca with babysitting included. I was somewhat skeptical, however thought I'd give it a try. I've been home only an hour and can absolutely say I'm hooked. I will be a regular customer."
-- Krissy G, Upper West Side, NYC
"Parents who don't take advantage of this program are simply nuts! We had SO MUCH FUN with our friends last night. And our kids loved your babysitters so much. We'll be doing Drop and Dine a lot."
-- Stacey D, Upper East Side, NYC
"This was my 1st parent play event and it was amazing! The babysitters knew my child quickly and noticed small details/achievements. Food, drinks & private time with my husband was great. Will definitely do this again soon!"
-- Edith C, Murray Hill, NYC

restaurants is frigging brilliant! Go to parentplay.com for details on
