FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Drop In Childcare?
Drop-in/short-term care is defined by North Carolina Law in General Statute 110-86(2)(d)(d1) as a child care arrangement where care is provided while parents participate in activities that are not employment related, and where the parents are on the premises or otherwise easily accessible.
Do I need to make a reservation before my children’s visit?
No reservations are necessary. However, we do ask that you call ahead to ensure availability for our Parent Night Out events and other special activities.
We require our employees to have at least 2 years of childcare experience, undergo criminal & federal background check, an active CPR/First Aid Certification, & complete a reference check for 3 professional references.
Payment types accepted?
We accept all major Credit & Debit Cards or Cash.
How long can my child stay?
For our Drop In Childcare, Baby Buddies/Toddler Time Program, & After school program, you are only able to receive four hours of care on a regular basis. NC regulations define a regular basis as at least one time per week. Please limit your time to less than once per week on average. Does not apply to Summer Camp programs and other recreational activities.
What if I need more than 4 hours of care?
