5 Questions to ask your children’s entertainer

With nearly 20 years’ experience in the children’s entertainment industry, it’s fair to say that Cathy Randazzo and the team have a wealth of experience to share. We asked them what the top 5 questions parents should ask when choosing a children’s entertainer.

Do you have insurance?

Children, dancing, power cords. What could go wrong? Ok, so with the right training around setting up equipment this shouldn’t be a problem, but the reality is things can go wrong. Having insurances for accidents is a necessity when you’re a children’s entertainer.

Do your staff hold appropriate security checks?

Our children are our most valuable asset and we take protecting them seriously. Making sure that your children’s entertainer has the appropriate and current security checks is mandatory when working with schools, kindergartens, & child care centres, it’s sadly overlooked when running birthday parties, community events, or holiday workshops.

Do you pay copyright for the songs you play?

As artists, children’s entertainers should value the hard work of the singers and songwriters of the songs they played and make sure they are paid. In Australia, children’s entertainers are required to pay copyright fees for the music they play but don’t own the copyright to.

Are your staff regularly trained?

It may seem silly to train a children’s entertainer, but there are always new dance moves, changes to health & safety rules, and new rules on working with children. Keeping up to date with these changes means that customers can rest easy knowing that they are receiving a high quality service.

Is your equipment safety tested?

Amplifiers, microphones, lighting; all of this equipment should be checked at least once a year by a licensed electrician. Safety testing is important for the safety of the party guests and the children’s entertainer.

We hope that these questions help you to choose a children’s entertainer for your next party or event. If you’d like more information about Bop till you Drop’s services, please follow the links at the top of our home page.

The host arrived on time and was very engaging. The Kids did not move from their seats for the entire duration. Definitely recommend getting them to lift up your b’day parties.
