STAFF

Child safety is our first priority. There will be a minimum of two staff in Kids Club at all times; we strive to maintain an 8:1 ratio of children to adults. All staff members have passed background checks and are CPR and First Aid certified. 

To create a better transition, we invite you to visit Kids Club with your child to get acquainted with staff and the space. Please ask about, or sign up for, a family orientation.
