Welcome to Kids Entertainment by The Babysitting Co
Inspiring imaginations is at the heart of what we do.
We provide childcare & entertainment for children aged 0-12 in the Algarve.
We specialize in entertaining children at weddings, organise children's parties, host toddler groups & baby sitting.
Our fun, experienced & professional team guarantee to completely entertain the children from start to finish, allowing you to relax and to enjoy your day too.
From regular babysitting, themed party ideas to photo fun booth madness & Algarve weddings we make sure your little ones are entertained & most importantly cared for.
Needing a party idea? Then why not take a break & have the Kids Ent. team come & entertain the kids. We can provide a party to suit any age & genre or theme while you sit back, relax & enjoy the party yourselves.
Children’s parties have become a big hit over the last year for us. We have a wide range of themed parties to choose from.
We are available to hire and can arrange the whole party for you using one of our recommended venues or within your own home.

COVID-19 & Kids Entertainment
At Kids Entertainment we take health and safety seriously and in light of the current outbreak of Corona Virus(COVID-19) we have put together some information all of which is based around DGS (Direcao-Geral da Saude) & PRESIDÊNCIA DO CONSELHO DE MINISTROS Resolution of the Council of Ministers no. 88-A / 2020 – 14th October 2020 Situation of Calamity.
We are fully aware that many weddings we are involved in over the next few months are either postponed already or are awaiting news of what may happen. We are working individually with our brides & grooms to ensure that we can honour our services on dates that have been changed already and also helping those who may have their wedding postponed or cancelled in the near future.
Little Nippers Toddler Sessions.
As many of you are aware due to the closing of schools and social distancing measures Little Nippers has been closed since March. It will continue to be closed until further notice. Once we can open Little Nippers, announcements will be made on all social media platforms.

Each pack is made up wearing PPE and placed in sealed plastic bags and delivered in plastic bags. They are delivered with all hygiene and social distancing practises required.

Closing date October 31st 2020--
50g peanut butter
150g golden caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
180g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
20 peanut butter cups, Rolos or Maltesers
icing eyes, or make your own
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line two baking sheets with parchment. Using an electric hand whisk, cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar together until very light and fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla. Once combined, stir in the flour, bicarb and ¼ tsp salt.
Scoop 18-20 tbsps of the mixture onto the trays, leaving enough space between each to allow for spreading. Make a thumbprint in the centre of the cookies. Bake for 10-12 mins or until firm at the edges but still soft in the middle – they’ll harden a little as they cool. Leave to cool on the tray for a few mins before topping each biscuit with a peanut butter cup, Rolo or Malteser. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Heat the chocolate in the microwave in short bursts, or in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water, until just liquid. Scrape into a piping bag and leave to cool a little. Pipe the legs onto each spider, then stick two eyes on each. Leave to set. Will keep for three days in an airtight container.
