Wellington announces the launch of a service that provides supervised childcare for parents who want to attend Council meetings at Village Hall.
Parks and Recreation staff will supervise children (ages 5 to 12) in their own kids’ corner near the Council chambers on Council Meeting nights beginning at 6:30 PM, through the end of the meeting. Board games, laptops, and a TV will be available for entertainment. Drinks and snacks are available for a fee via vending machines.
“Our goal is to make local government accessible to all our residents, so they can stay informed and engaged with what’s happening in their community,” said Village Manager, Jim Barnes. “This service allows families with young children to get involved without having to worry about what to do with their children.”
Registration is required before the start of the meeting. To register, contact the Wellington Clerks Office via email at VillageClerk@wellingtonfl.gov by noon the day before the Council meeting.
