What's Drop-in childcare?
Drop-in/short-term childcare is defined by law as a child care arrangement where care is provided while parents participate in activities that are not employment related.
Drop-in/short-term childcare would be used by parents who need care while they occasionally run errands or participate in leisure activities. We must be able to reach the parent by a phone call immediately and the parent must be able to get back to our facility within 15 minutes.
At Playtime Drop In we offer supervised childcare for your child for up to four hours or less per day as many days of the week you would like! On occasion your child may stay for more than four hours, just not everyday.
At Playtime Drop In we offer a safe environment for your child, therefore our staff has passed a background check and is CPR and First Aid certified.
We strive to offer your child a fun and positive experience sharing our passion for childcare as well as our love for children.
Playtime Drop In is specially arranged for children to play and enjoy hours of fun with several different engaging activities! We go above and beyond the normal cleaning procedures to ensure your child is playing in a clean and safe environment. We also offer a separate area for crawlers or little ones just starting to walk.
We are a PEANUT FREE facility and ask you to please refrain from bringing an ill child to us or if he/she has vomited or had a fever in the past 24 hours. In case of Gastroenteritis/stomach bug we ask our parents to wait at least 48 hours after the last time they vomit or have diarrhea before bringing them to us.
Playtime Drop In reserves the right to refuse ill children and if we observe signs of illness the parent will be contacted and asked to pick up the child.
We also require that children attending our facility have their immunizations up to date.
The following are some, but not all, of the guidelines of symptoms of children considered ill:
A temperature of 100 degrees or higher, Sore throat, red watery eyes (pink eye), excessive cough, undiagnosed rash, and excessive runny nose/sneezing.
Please make sure your child brings shoes or socks while staying with us.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
We are a family owned and operated Drop-In/Hourly Childcare facility, that was established with the thought of one of the everyday needs of parents in our community, trustworthy childcare. We have a vast experience in childcare, including owning and operating a daycare center for nearly 5 years, as well as having three children of our own. Many of us have children and are in need of some extra time to run errands, go to the doctor, enjoy a date night or just want our child to play, socialize, and have fun with other little ones! That's what we are here for!
Would you like to have some mornings to yourself and at the same time create a fun routine for your little one? We have that covered for you as well! Ask us about our Mother's Morning Out service.
