Christmas shopping is chore enough, dragging kids along while you do it only makes it worse.
This year there's an option. A new short term day care center called Pitter Patters has opened at Fashion Square Mall.
Parents can drop their 2-to-11 year-olds off for up to 3 hours while they get their shopping done.
Pitter Patters Co-owner Latishia Wilson says, ”We plan for it to be permanent. We're hoping that we'll really get a lot of exposure during the holiday season, but then people will see that they can use us throughout the whole year.”
Pitter Patters can take 25 kids at a time. They are pre-registering kids for Black Friday, the first shopping day after Thanksgiving. The price to park your child there is $7 an hour.
