VillaKids FAQs

Does my child need an active membership for rotations, camps or Parent’s Night Out?
Your child does need an active membership for rotations. For camps and Parent’s Night Out, you can register your child as a non-member and pay the non-member rates. 

How are you able to social distance in your youth programs?
We will be following these guidelines:

  • 6' social distancing will be promoted 

  • Ages groups will be limited in size.

  • Groups will be in separate areas of VillaKids with staggered playground times and special activities like art and music.

  • Carpet squares, mats, or other visuals will be used to help kids with spacing.

  • Tables with name cards may also be used to adequately space kids.

What is your sick policy for kids?
Sick kids, regardless of the nature of the illness, are not permitted in any VillaKids program. If your child or anyone in your household has recently had an illness with fever (100.4°F or greater), new cough or shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, or has been exposed to COVID-19 within the preceding 14 days, please do not bring them to the club. If exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, please seek testing promptly and report results to VillaKids given the implications for other children, families, and staff. Kids experiencing symptoms will be instructed to remain home for at least 10 days after the onset of illness and for at least 72 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine, and COVID-19 symptoms are improving. Children confirmed to have COVID-19, or in close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19 (e.g. household members), may not return to current or future youth program sessions until they meet the criteria set forth by local public health authorities.

Are you checking temperatures?
All parents are required to check their child’s temperature and monitor for other symptoms before they leave home each day. If you forget to take your child’s temperature, thermometers will be available at check-in for you to take his/her temperature.

What is your sick policy for employees?
Sick employees, regardless of the nature of the illness, are not permitted to work. If it is known that staff or anyone in their household has recently had an illness with fever, new cough or shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, or has been exposed to COVID-19 within the preceding 14 days, they will not be permitted to work. Staff experiencing symptoms will be instructed to remain home for at least 10 days after the onset of illness and for at least 72 hours after the fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicine, and COVID-19 symptoms are improving. Staff confirmed to have COVID-19, or in close contact with a person confirmed to have COVID-19, may not return to work until they meet the criteria set forth by local public health authorities.

How often do you clean?
Staff will frequently clean and disinfect high-use items such as tables, chairs, handles, sinks, and restrooms, as well as shared toys, supplies, and equipment, and at the end of each day.

What chemicals do you use to clean?
We use a safe mixture of bleach and water per state or local orders and guidance for daycare settings that has been approved for use with SARS-CoV2.
