Las Vegas Child Care for Visitors

Updated December 6th, 2018
This page is dedicated to various types of child care facilities for Las Vegas bound parents with kids in tow.

In-Hotel Child Care Services

In-Hotel Child Care ServicesIf you’re after hotel accommodation in Las Vegas where child care services are offered on the premises, expect to stay off the Las Vegas Strip. Staying beyond the Strip means more affordable lodging, where in-hotel child care centers are decently priced. Not to mention the convenience of having child care assistance just steps away from your room.

These centers are all about fun. They offer children the opportunity for playing and socializing, with activities that are just right for their age and developmental level. If your child has special needs, he or she may require more individual attention than these programs are capable of providing (check out our Babysitters and Nannies section). Since parents cannot leave the hotel while children are in care, this arrangement might be more fitting for adults who are general visitors rather than those with a specific agenda (e.g. conventioneers).

There are two options for in-hotel child care services in Las Vegas: Kid’s Tyme and Kids Quest.

Address: 4500 W Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103

At Kid’s Tyme, your child will be in a safe, clean environment happily engaged in age appropriate fun under the watchful eye of qualified staff. All kids must be potty trained to participate. There is a 1 hour minimum and 5 hour maximum stay.

What To Bring

  • Make sure you have a digital or physical copy of your child’s immunization records on hand. Kids Quest are more lenient on this; you can register without records, sign a waiver, and you’ll need to email/fax them within 15 days.
  • Socks, as play areas are shoe-free. Some centers will let you purchase socks onsite if you forget them.
  • Valid ID.
  • For Kid’s Tyme, you can download/print the rules and registration form ahead of your visit to streamline the check-in process. For Kid’s Quest, you can pre-register on their website.
  • Each provider has slightly different requirements, so be sure to check directly with the service regarding anything else to bring.

Babysitters and Nannies

Babysitters and NanniesThe ideal child care arrangement for many families visiting Las Vegas, of course, is to stay in a hotel that offers its own child care service on the premises. But few hotels in Las Vegas offer this amenity, and hotels that do are found off-Strip. Luckily many hotel’s concierge can easily contact a licensed nanny or babysitting service,, reducing the stress and workload of sourcing trustworthy child care.

Top tip: Find a hotel that is both ultra kid-friendly and can assist you in arranging child care. Hotels like the Four Seasons Hotel, Trump International Hotel, New York-New York Hotel Casino, Circus-Circus Hotel and Casino are known for catering to kids and accommodating for requests like hiring a nanny or babysitter.

How To Find a Babysitter or Nanny

If you’d prefer instead to conduct your own research on babysitter and nanny options for your trip to Las Vegas, below are steps you can take to find the perfect caregiver.

Step 1: Know the difference between a babysitter and a nanny

A babysitter's role is to generally supervise and entertain children. Babysitters are considered to be more entry-level when it comes to individual child care providers. A nanny must not only be capable of providing custodial care, but they should have extensive knowledge and training in child development. Nannies may have other responsibilities such as meal preparation and transportation. They tend to be paid more than babysitters.

Step 2: Ask important screening questions

Now that you understand the difference between a babysitter and nanny, you can begin your search for whichever type of caregiver is most appropriate for your child’s needs. Consider asking the following questions to properly screen the services you’re about to contact:

  • If through a professional agency, how many years have they been in business? Are they licensed?
  • If an individual, ask for the person's resume and references.
  • What are the qualifications and experience of the caregiver?
  • Is the caregiver certified to provide CPR and First Aid?
  • What hours are they available?
  • What are their rates?
