Edge Kids Policies

Edge Kids Policies and procedures 2016 Final

The following rules and regulations were developed with the safety and concern of children in mind. With the amount of children who use our facilities throughout the day, it is important that we adhere to these guidelines. Children may spend a maximum of 2 hours per day in the Edge Kids facility, unless they are participating in an event. We reserve the right to limit children in the room to maintain safety. There may be a short wait to enter during peak times.

Ages

  • We accept children 6 weeks old through 12 years old.
  • In addition to the main Edge Kids room there is also an infant only area available where we have walkers, swings, and age appropriate toys.

Bottles and Cups

  • Pre-made bottles for infants under 1 year may be offered in the infant area.
  • Edge Kids allows only water in a spill proof container.
  • Bottles and cups will be labeled with child’s name.

Meals

  • Due to food allergies, our Edge Kids centers are Snack Free Zones. Children should eat their meals at home and not in the Edge Kids room.
  • Exception during events, nut-free foods will be provided in a designated area, and any child with allergies will be closely monitored.

Comments and Suggestions

We welcome comments and suggestions regarding our facilities, staff and activities. Please provide site-specific contact information.

Diapering and Toileting

Parents will need to bring a change of diapers and clothing with for any child in diapers. In the event a diaper change is needed, the Edge Kids team members notify the parent of changing. Parents must respond within 5 minutes of being notified. Parents of a child who is in the process of potty training need to notify staff of this and have children in a pull-up.

Discipline

Edge Kids staff will always try to resolve any conflicts or behavior problems with the parents so that consistent and appropriate discipline is used to help the situation. We never touch children for disciplinary reasons, only to comfort them or remove them from a potentially dangerous situation. Willful disruption of activities, physical aggression and profanity are not tolerated. We expect our Edge Kids to treat each other and the Edge Kids staff with kindness and respect. We reserve the right to suspend a child from Edge Kids at any time should we feel they are not abiding by this principle.

Dress

Children should dress comfortably so they can play and participate in all of the activities. Shoes and shirt are required.

Operating hours vary by club. Hours are posted inside the club and on our website.
