DROP OFF & PICK UP
The majority of the Childcare staff has been at the club since it opened and knows which parent goes with which child.
The parent that drops off the child should be the parent that picks up the child unless you indicate otherwise, in person, to our staff.
Infant Room – Childcare can accommodate up to 6 infants and 12 toddlers in the back room at one time.
There is always at least 2 staff, if not 3, in the Infant Room during peak times
(usually 9:00 am-11: 30 am).
Main Room – Childcare can accommodate up to 50 children in the main room at one time and there is always at least three staff on during peak times. We do not usually have maximum capacity unless it is a No School Day or school/summer vacation.
FOOD AND DRINKS
You may bring snacks and drinks for your children. Please label your food and drink. The Center is NUT FREE and no snack may contain nut products in any form.
CPR/FIRST AID CERTIFICATION
The majority of the Childcare staff is CPR/First Aid certified. The MOD (Manager on Duty) is always certified.
Shop Alone is a service that allows member children to remain in Childcare while parents leave the club. Shop Alone is only available on weekdays when the Director is on-site. Reservations must be made in advance. Shop Alone fees are $8/hr for the first child, $7/hr for the second child, and $6/hr for additional children.
