Any member whose membership does not include childcare may use KIM for the daily rate of $6 for one child, $12 for two children and $18 for three children.  One visit per day is allowed.

Bringing Friends

Your child may bring a friend to the KIM however a Playcare Agreement must be signed by the friend’s parent or guardian and the friends parent or guardian must be on site. We cannot admit a child without a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.  If the friend’s parent is not a member, or a member without childcare included in their membership, payment will be collected according to the rates listed above. The first visit for the child is complimentary.

Signing In & Out

Please be sure to sign your child/children in at the time of drop off, and sign them out when you pick them up.  The same parent must sign the child in and out, unless prior arrangements have been made with KIM.

Ages & Time Limits

Please note and abide by the following age-based time limitations:  6-18 months—1.5 hours; 19 months-12 years—2 hours.  The maximum stay for any child is 2 hours. The parent or legal guardian must be present on site while children are in KIM.

Staff Ratio

The following staff to child ratios applies: 1:8 or 1:3 for a child 18 months or younger.  The KIM has a maximum capacity of 25 children.  If we have reached our maximum capacity, or are exceeding our ratios and unable to find additional staff, a member may be asked to wait until someone leaves before we can admit additional children.

Attire

Please bring your children dressed in appropriate attire.  Sandals and flip flops can be difficult to play in and may result in injury to your child and are therefore strongly discouraged. We request that girls not wear small hair ornaments or jewelry as they present a choking hazard.

For the health and safety of yours and others, please do not bring your child to KIM if he/she has any contagious illness or exhibits any of the following conditions:: a fever of 100 degrees or higher, diarrhea twice in one day, vomiting, a bacterial infection under antibiotic treatment for less than 24 hours, pink eye or conjunctivitis, head lice, nasal discharge that is not clear or persistent coughing.

Please be advised that if your child shows one or more of these symptoms, we will ask that you remove your child.  KIM Associates are not permitted to dispense medication to your children. Children who appear ill will be asked to leave immediately.

Pacifiers

If a pacifier is necessary during a child’s stay in KIM, please attach it to their clothing.

Potty Training

If you are in the process of potty training your little one, we would like to assist in these efforts.  In order for us to do so, parents should inform staff of these efforts at the time of drop off. We will do our best to provide those children with extra attention.  However accidents do occur. Therefore we ask that you please have your child wear a Pull-Up during his/her visit. You may bring spare pants or shorts should your child need a change.
