New Business Offers Relief to Parents

LAS VEGAS -- How many times have you had to miss a lunch or dinner with friends, or skipped a shopping trip because you didn't have anyone to watch the kids? A new business at Town Square is filling that niche for locals and tourists.

Town Square serves about 40 percent tourists and 60 percent locals. There is a park where you see a lot of families enjoying the train ride, ice cream shops and water stations.

But now parents have a new option while shopping and dining, called Artsy Nannies. You can drop off your kids, or for tourists staying on the Strip, they will pick them up. The owner is a Las Vegas native and mom of three who's in-home day care service grew from seven to 15 nannies.

"We deal with a lot of tourists that come into the valley, so I wanted to expand it, make it more local," said Andrea Vallee with Artsy Nannies. "I think there's a need for it, especially at Town Square, where the parents can come in, go to dinner, go to the movies, and the children can come here."

Artsy Nannies is on north Main Street in Town Square. They open on Monday.
