Looking for a night out on the town sans children? How about an afternoon over at the Soggy Dollar? Or perhaps some me time at Mongoose Junction? Well for those of you looking for a responsible and affordable on-island babysitter, there’s a new service just for you.
Kids Night In is a recently-launched babysitting service provided by Leslie McKibben. Leslie is an experienced pediatric physical therapist who moved to St. John earlier this year. The great thing about Kids Night In is that it comes to you.
“I have provided services (at guests’ villas) for a romantic night out, a day trip to the BVIs … and of course, a night of adult ‘libations’ without little kids’ eyes watching … Or when locals need help with a work schedule or a night to play grown up-style,” Leslie said.
But this isn’t just all about the parents having fun – The kids have a lot of options too. A few activities available are baking, scavenger hunts, hiking, pool fun, crafts, dance parties, games, iPad educational games and more.
Kids Night In costs $20 per hour plus $5 an hour per additional child. Locals receive a discounted rate.
