What type of “security” do you provide at an event?
This is the question most often asked and the one that needs the most explaining. We prefer to use the word “chaperone” in place of “security”. The word “security” can sound harsh, especially to the children. We do not want the kids to see us as a threat, but more as chaperones looking out for them. We only employ certified school teachers as our chaperones because they have the skills necessary to engage and interact with middle school children. Our clients hire us to chaperone their events to ensure that the party runs smoothly, the kids are enjoying themselves to the fullest extent yet staying within the boundaries of appropriate.
How many chaperones will I need to supervise my event?
The amount of chaperones you need will depend upon the number of children at the party. We are fully licensed and insured and our insurance strictly mandates the ratio of chaperones to children. Please call us to discuss the specifics of your event.
If I have a bus to transport the kids to the event, how does Bar Mitzvah Bouncer, Inc. handle that?
We are more than happy and equipped to handle chaperoning a bus trip if needed. Our experience chaperones arrive at the departure location early, check each child onto the bus and position themselves appropriately during the bus ride to ensure that everyone is behaving in a respectable manner for the duration of the ride.
How far in advance do I need to book my event?
We strongly recommend that you contact us at your earliest convenience to ensure that your event is secured in our schedule. We will however try to accommodate each and every request we receive.
