Frequently asked questions

What sets us apart?


We bring fun projects for the kids to create! We bring a portable ART CART of fun for your children! Choose one of these themes. 1. “Beach Baby” These projects will be related to the ocean and beaches of the Monterey Peninsula. For example, your child will create an ocean scene made from canvases, real sand from the local beaches, beautiful embellishments, and materials like fabrics, rocks, pebbles, and paint. 2. “ Disney" The kids will create a collage of Disney favorites on a canvas. Paint, glue, decoupage and embellish a beautiful masterpiece that can be hung in their room or any room. 3. "Upcycling Fun”. There are so many recycled materials that can be used for endless fun. We will have something that will bring out the creative side of your child and also will encourage thinking, problem-solving, and cooperating with proud accomplishment!




Does my child have to participate in the Art projects?


I notice that your service includes art projects. However, my child is 6 months old. Would I get a discount because she can’t participate"? Unfortunately, the cost will remain the same, our art projects are just an added part of the service. If a child is not interested in doing arts-n-crafts they certainly don’t have to. It's just there for added fun. However, I find most kids love the activities and will participate eagerly.

Your ART on Wheels sitters can be identified by a black polo shirt and name tag. They will be rolling an "Art Cart" full of creative goodies for your child/ren.

What about tipping?


Tipping is at your discretion, if you would like to thank your sitter for a job well done, please feel free to tip them. Most families tip between $10.00 to $20.00 for a 4-hour sitting job.




Should I bring my kids with me on a conference?


Conferences and meetings that are required by job management have greater attendance when they can bring their children! There is enough stress having someone take care of them when you are away. But knowing they are close and being cared for by a fully qualified caregiver gives you complete “Peace of Mind” and then you have the freedom after work to enjoy time with your family and see the many beautiful sights on the Monterey Peninsula! We got you!
