The Care Necessities is a children's entertainment service for weddings and occasions. It was started by Angelina and Tracey, two sisters who are both recently married ourselves and both found it hard to entertain and organise the children at our weddings. From this we had this idea to start "The Care Necessities" to offer other couples children's entertainment and childminding services throughout the day. 

We both have experience working in a preschool and after school with all ages of children. We are highly qualified with QQI level 5 & QQI level 6 in childcare and love and enjoy working with children and are Garda vetted.

We come to your venue and set up a "pop up kids club" in a separate room where we provide a safe and fun atmosphere for the children with lots of fun activities like face painting, games, arts and crafts and mini disco. The children may also have their dinner table set up in this room so they do not have to leave the fun :-) 

We understand the struggles parents have when organising an occasion with children and we want to help to ease the stress. This service is available for all occasions.

I booked Care Necessities for my wedding on the 8th September last, and I have to say it was the best money we spent on the entire wedding. I have a 14month son and 9 year old daughter and was stressed about who would look after them on the day as didn't want to leave to all the family and have the baby passed around etc. we also have 6 other children attending so wanted them to have fun and enjoy the day (while giving there parents a break too :) the girls were just amazing, they played games, arts and crafts etc .(my daughter was so excited and had the best day with her cousins. they gave them there dinner, changed my son and then stayed around to mind him that evening. I have never left them with strangers before but the girls where just amazing with all the kids and I felt so at ease once they arrived. thank you so much Angelina, so if your thinking of booking anyone to entertain children at your wedding I would highly recommend care necessities, worth every penny!

These ladies are absolutely fantastic at what they do! They are so friendly and professional and completely take the stress out of planning a wedding with children. From the moment I contacted Tracey, she put my mind at ease and helped us to organise how the kids club would slot into our wedding day. Nothing was too much trouble for them, even when there were some last minute changes, they adapted without any hassle. We got married on September 3rd 2018, and there were 18 children attending. The Care Necessities had a team of 4 ladies on the day who handled these numbers with such ease, there was no fuss and the kids totally loved it! Tracey had asked for the names and ages of all the children in advance so they had games and activities that were appropriate for all of their ages. My 2-year-old daughter wouldn’t leave, she was having great fun playing with play doh. The kids came out looking so happy and they all had their faces painted. Their parents are still talking about what a brilliant idea it was and how great it was to be able to enjoy their dinner and the speeches without having to worry about the children getting bored. It was definitely worth the money and we would highly recommend the Care Necessities to anyone who wants a stress free wedding with happy guests and happy kids!

We had the care necessities at our wedding on the 6th of July. We originally booked for a set number of children but on the day a few extra turned up. The girls dealt with it no problem and catered for all the kids on the day. The ages ranged from 2 to 12 years old. All the kids are still talking about the fun they had and wondering when the next event is on and will we book the people we had at the wedding . It is honestly the best thing we done on the day having them there. Thanks so much again for everything. Xx

We got married on NYE and we had 10 children at our wedding, our reception was in an old stone house full of history (and full of antiques). I was worried sick that anything would happen to the children as there was many stairs in the house, I got these girls from 2pm to 2 am and I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart they made my wedding day super. The children loved them, they were just amazing. Honestly, I could not recommend them enough. I am so thankful for how the looked after the children. Every guest at our wedding commented on how excellent they were.

I couldn't recommend Care Necessities highly enough. Tracey looked after my 4 month old baby when we were wedding guests recently. I wasn't able to leave my baby at home overnight so it was fantastic to find Care Necessities. I got to enjoy the wedding safe in the knowledge that my little girl was being well looked after upstairs. Tracey was kind, caring and professional, I would highly recommend her to anyone bringing children to a wedding.

Thank you for your lovely words and recommendation. It really means a lot. It's always great to hear that parents were relaxed and enjoyed their night as that is what we aim for while the children are safe and happy.
