CAN I CHECK ON MY CHILD?
Yes! We encourage you to call us at 970.726.1631 to check on your child if you have concerns. We discourage picking up your child for lunch and dropping them back off or checking on them in person throughout the day because this can cause additional separation difficulties not only for your child, but for other children as well. We will also give you a call if there are any concerns.
DO YOU DIVIDE BY AGES?
Yes, we have a separate gated area for infants and another for toddlers and pre-k. We also provide a crib room separate from the main play area.
WHAT ACTIVITIES DO KIDS DO?
We offer a number of age appropriate activities. These may include arts and crafts, creative movement, free play, music, dance, yoga, games, puppet shows, sensory table, play dough and coloring. We also head outside when the weather is appropriate! We take groups for snowmobile rides, play on our patios and head to the playground.
Movies are played during quiet time. We watch age appropriate movies; the movie of the day is posted in the childcare. Please let us know if you have concerns.
An Add-on Private lesson offers a wonderful opportunity for young skiers who are not quite ready for a full day lesson or simply too young to participate in our group lessons. If your child can walk, they can experience the joy of skiing with the Add-on Private lesson! Your child does not need to be potty trained for this lesson. Please call the Childcare to check for availability.
