Help a Mom: Searching for parents' night out programs

Posted July 31, 2012

I received this email from a reader a day ago. She is looking for a parents' night out program where parents can drop off their kids for a few hours while they go out on the town.

Here's what she wrote:

Some friends and I are planning a ladies night out while our boys go out for a bachelor party. Most of us have children. It would be great if we could find [a parents' night out program] for the Saturday we want to go out on Aug. 18 so that we could all use it and go have fun. Our kids would all have a blast playing with each other as well.

The families lives in Raleigh, she tells me. The kids range in age from 3 to 8.

    I second Kool Kidz in Apex and Morrisville. They have a Parents Night 0ut once and sometimes twice a month. Great staff and the one in Apex is 5 mins from Beaver creek shopping center ( movies and restaurants)

    We also love RightTime Kids. At first I just dropped my son (4) when I had no other childcare options, but now he asks to go, so I make it a point to take him more often. I have always felt great about the staff and he has always had a great time.

    There is a cheerleading squad in Apex that my daughter has been a member of for 3 years now. They have just moved into a larger gym, and they do PNO's every other week from 5-9pm for $15 per child, and offer extended care from 9-10:30PM for an additional $5.00. The weekend of August 18th will be themed on wearing bright colors so the kids can have a "Blacklight Party". The website is

    I absolutely agree with all of the posts below, Right Time Kids is the first choice in this area, and has exceeded my expectations every time I have used their services for my little ones.

    Right Time Kids has an amazing staff! My son loves Right Time Kids. They have lots of fun games and activities for older children too. GREAT safe and affordable place for the kids while enjoying your ladies night out!

    I would have to second the comments about Right Time Kids. I know that their service and commitment to the kids in their stores are their top priority.

    I have been to several child care centers in my area and have been completely blown away by the high standards at Right Time Kids. My daughter loves it there and I know that my princess is in good hands! I have a monthly girls night out and Right Time Kids has made it possible. :)
