At the Bowness Community Association, we are committed to creating welcoming gathering spaces where all members of our community can come together to enjoy programs, activities, and events. That’s why we are pleased to announce that we will endeavour to provide free childminding services to parents and caregivers during BCA Events, allowing them to fully participate while their children are cared for by experienced childminders in a safe and fun environment.
To ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children in our care, we will be following the BCA Childminding Guidelines, which outline our policies and procedures.
In order to utilize our childminding services, parents and caregivers must complete and sign the BCA Childminding Guidelines & Consent Form, which can be viewed here and will be available at events where childminding is available. This form must be completed no more than 48 hours in advance and signed for each child at every drop-off.
It’s important to note that childminding services are not guaranteed and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We will post childminding availability in the description of each event’s listing in the BCA Events Calendar, so be sure to check in advance and reach out to the organizer if you have any questions or concerns.
We hope that this initiative gives parents and caregivers more opportunities to fully engage in community events here at the BCA. So, come on down and join us for some fun – we can’t wait to see you!
