We have used CKE for many years for our 3 day event. I always try to book for the following year before we leave on the last day of our event because they are just that good! The Directors are always professional and staff are great with the kids. Come with planned activities that keep the kids happy and active, and are flexible if you want to bring in some of your own activities as well. From contract, planning, to execution, CKE is a fabulous company to work with!
We partnered with CKE to provide childcare for our first family conference. Simply, it was one of the best decisions we made. Our families rarely feel comfortable leaving their special needs children with other caregivers, and the professionalism, kindness and enthusiasm of CKE’s team put our parents at ease and allowed them to really take in the conference content without worrying about their children. In addition, the children themselves, had an absolute blast. Many could not wait to go back to “Camp CACNA1A” during the breaks, and they made life-long friendships with siblings and other affected children.
“We have been using CKE for our children’s program at our annual meetings since 2003 and for our two summer summits since 2010. These programs have had up to 450 children at one meeting, ages 3 months to 17 years old. We are a special needs group and working with a company who understands and trains its staff about the intricacies involved with our group is key! The quality of service and care that they have provided over the past 11 years has allowed me to focus on the primary objectives and purpose for our meetings. They have never disappointed and have very responsible staff to whom our affected children bond very quickly. Along these lines, we’ve consistently gotten great feedback from the parents about the quality and safety of our children’s programs which have enhanced the success of our events. I highly recommend CKE for any group out there looking to increase attendance and enhance their meeting. An addition of a childcare program run by a great reliable company such as CKE is the answer!”
“Our organization is The Chromosome 18 Registry & Research Society. We help children born with a chromosome 18 condition overcome the challenges they face so they can lead happy and healthy lives. We have a family conference each year so that parents can learn more about their children’s condition from medical and education professionals and also network and learn from other parents. Parents and family members come to learn all they can to better support their child. It is so important that while the sessions and presentations are going on, parents know their children are well cared for and happy. Years ago when our group was much smaller we were able to operate childcare with volunteers. This was always a huge undertaking. Trying to find consistent and qualified volunteers for a three day period was always a challenge. As we have grown as an organization and as as our conferences have grown, we knew we had to take childcare to the next level. We had to address the concerns of liability as well as ensuring that all of our kids, the very reason we were having a conference, were having a great conference experience like their parents were. We have used Corporate Kids Events at our conference now for about six years. Now the kids are excited to hear about their conference program and what Corporate Kids has in store for them each year. They are happy going to the CKE program each day and they are happy when their parents pick them up. Parents can relax and get the most out of their sessions, knowing their children are safe and happy. I know each group utilizing Corporate Kids Events has many different and changing needs. Corporate Kids Events understand this and have always tried to work with our group in a fair and flexible manner. Many of our children have special needs and Corporate Kids Events always provides sensitive, friendly and qualified staff. Thank you Corporate Kids Events for helping The Registry continue to provide a quality family event year after year.”
“I have known and worked with Garen Gouveia and his team at Corporate Kids Events the past five years and consider them the best in the business of childcare for my clients events at Hyatts across the country. Since March 2009 it has been our privilege to partner with Corporate Kids Events as the exclusive Childcare provider for hundreds of Yellow Ribbon programs hosted at our Hyatt hotels & Resorts. The staff is extremely professional handling the complex needs of our Yellow Ribbon Groups, with constant changing and last minute needs with clarity, consistency and calmness. We’ve worked with CK&E on small groups and programs as large as several hundred children at a time. We can always count on a safe and creative atmosphere for the kids to enjoy and the parents to feel at ease. Their communication and focus is on the special needs of these families reuniting family members deployed around the world, they ensure the kiddos are the primary focus, and they provide a memorable weekend for all the families.
Garen’s leadership, his staffs dedication and operations support create a warm and trusting atmosphere for all those involved. We will continue to partner with CK&E for future events and recommend them highly. Any organization is all the better involving CK&E with their events.”
