Each Desk will be disinfected in between the kids.
The only other exception is if the entire space is booked by a family/families from the same households that include kids Under 4. You will have to fill out health questionnaire and sign a consent form. Adult in the room supervising the kids will wear the mask at all times.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I ARRIVE LATE?
Please be aware that your session is booked for a specific time slot. We will always appreciate a heads up if you are running behind. If you arrive late, we may not be able to accommodate your past scheduled time.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM NUMBER OF HOURS I CAN BOOK IN ONE DAY?
Due to Covid-19, for now, we removed 1 & 2hr booking options in order to streamline check in and reduce number of people going in and coming out throughout each session. We will continue to re-evaluate this policy as we move forward and collect feedback from the community.
Adults can book Full Day Pass from 9am-5pm or Extended Day Pass from 9am-10:30pm or a Work Week Pass, M-F from 9am-10:30pm (must be used in a single week). Under each pass you can stay for as long as you need but unused hours can not be carried over to a different day.
Under Family Passes, you can book 4hr AM or PM session or a monthly pass that includes 5-4hr long sessions.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD CRIES OR EXPERIENCES SEPARATION ANXIETY?
Due to Covid-19, if a child cries or experiences separation anxiety we will ask a parent to come into the room right away, and stay with the child until they calm down. If a child still struggles to adjust we will ask that you reschedule your session.
We understand that little ones may need some time to adjust to a new environment and to the new caregivers. We will give each child plenty of individual attention and will figure out if they need to be held or distracted with an activity or a toy.
But if a child experiences separation anxiety & does Not Show Signs of Calming Down After 7 Minutes, We Will Ask Their Parent Or Guardian To Step In The Room And Stay With The Child For The Duration Of The Session.
DO YOU OFFER GENTLE SEPERATION SESSION?
If a child is not used to being cared for by individuals outside of his/her immediate caregiver, and/or if they experience separation anxiety, we will work with you to set up one or more ‘Gentle Separation’ sessions during the weekend. These sessions will help your little one adjust at their own pace to being in a new environment & under the care of new caregivers. Please inquire if you would like more information.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS NOT POTTY TRAINED?
Our Play-Educators, will change diapers, assist kids with potty training and one of the staff members will always walk a child and assist, if needed, with using the restroom, located in our private hallway.
IF ME OR MY CHILD ARE SICK, CAN WE RESCHEDULE OUR SESSION?
Yes. We will operate on an honor system and extend to every client, including adult and child, up to 3 ‘sick day’ passes per month. Allowing clients to reschedule on the day of their appointment. After that 25% reservation fee will be required to hold your spot.
ARE THERE NAP TIMES?
There are NO naps in the kid activity center, however, if a child 3 years and younger, does fall asleep, we will place them in either your stroller or will use Work & Tot’s Cybex Priam stroller (that lies flat) to have your child nap by your work station. Once they wake up we will bring them back to the play area.
