Latitude will offer dedicated fully qualified festival childcare professionals who will provide bespoke childcare at a ‘mini festival’ of their own the Boutique Babysitting kids club. Parents will be given the chance to drop off their little ones at a choice of two 4-hour sessions, with the later one taking place after the festivals’ own Children’s Area has closed up for the night. Children will be invited to explore and experiment with their own music studios, production, wardrobe and stage areas; make new festival friends; play games and generally enjoy some parent-free fun at their very own festival.
