FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to make reservations for Drop-in Care?
Currently our Drop-in Program is on hold as a result of COVID. However when we restart our program we do require reservations ahead of time. You can call or email your request but we recommend you use our simple reservation system to request the hours you would like childcare for. For your convenience, our registration request website is https://kidsclubhousemainline.simplybook.me/v2/.
Because we are a fully-licensed childcare facility we always need to be mindful of our staff to children ratio. If you know that you would like to use our drop-in services on a day you think will be very busy, you may reserve your child(ren)'s spot up to 48 hours in advance. If you wish to reserve a spot for the same day please call to see if we have space. If we do, you can reserve a spot on the phone for your child(ren).
Do you charge a registration fee?
There is a $100 registration fee for our FT Program and a $50 initial registration fee per family for our part-time and drop-in programs.
What forms do I need to fill out before I can use your child care?
You need to fill out our registration form which includes basic information about your child(ren), authorized pick-up person(s) for your child(ren), emergency contacts, and pertinent health information for your child(ren). We also require a current immunization record to be given to the center. If your child's immunization record is on file at their school, you can provide contact information for the school. For your convenience, this paperwork can be filled out in advance, and the registration fee will only be charged at your child(ren)'s first visit.
Do you provide snacks and meals?
We do not provide meals however we offer AM and PM snacks during the week which are included in our FT and PT tuitions or for a fee of $1.50/snack for our drop-in. The snack calendar is posted on our website. Parents of children with food allergies are required to provide written documentation of the food allergy and are highly encouraged to meet with our Center Director to discuss any specific nutritional needs. Parents will be asked to provide nutritional substitutes for their child when a documented allergy, religious conflict, or other circumstance prevents a child from being offered all menu items. The Kids’ Clubhouse of the Main Line also recommends that parents remind us about the allergy at each check-in.
Some products we serve are produced in facilities that may also produce nut products. If your child is severely allergic to nuts, we recommend that you tell The Clubhouse staff that your child may not eat Clubhouse food.
All foods brought from home must be nut free.
