Attending events with your child
Events are generally geared to the pre-walking aged baby. Selected events and classes do include childcare or activities for children up to 6 years of age. Each event will have an age recommendation listed as follows:
Mama-t0-be and Mama-only
are welcome at all of our events!
Dads are welcome at all of our events!
0-13 months (please have your baby in a carseat-carrier or stroller as many venues don’t have a soft-floor play/seating area)
14 months – 3 years
Many events are unable to accomodate older than Infant aged children due to logistics. Nannies are on hand to help calm babies, change diapers, provide a bottle, or just help with a bag, bathroom break or stroller. At the majority of events, they are on-site in the same area as you. Generally there will be one nanny for every two to three babies. It is imperative to have your infant carseat or stroller along for baby to have a safe place to be.
If you have older children you would like to bring, but nanny service is not included for their age group, we can arrange to have an exclusive nanny for you. Cost for this service is $35 for two hours.
Events are private and will be kept small. Classes/topics are led by experts. ALL events can be attended without your child or as a (expecting mama) modern-mama-to-be! We are not membership based (although you can buy a membership and get perks and discounts!), and you may attend any event pay-as-you-go.
Registration & Payment
You do not need a paypal account to pay via paypal with a credit card. Your spot in the event or class is not secured until payment has been completed. You will receive an Eventbrite notification/confirmation once payment is complete. You do not need to bring a receipt or print-out to the event.
Cancellations, Refunds & Make-up Policy
If you are unable to attend an event registered for, notify the director planning the event immediately (listed both on the location page, the event listing and on Eventbrite). It is at the discretion of the director if she is able to offer a make-up event or a refund. The event make-up must be scheduled in advance and depends on availability. Any cost difference will be your responsibility. Notification must be at least 48 hours in advance.
There are no credits given after an event or after the first day of a series/class.
Modern Mama nor its nannies or any venue hosting an event will be held liable for any loss, damage or injuries. You may be asked to sign a liability waiver when using Modern Mama Nannies.
