What if my child is sick?
We have a lot of children through our door daily. In an effort to decrease the spread of illness, please keep your child home if they are symptomatic or experiencing a fever. Please alert our staff if your child comes down with anything highly contagious so we can properly sanitize.
We ask that kids and adults please leave shoes in cubbies by the front door and enjoy their play in socks or bare feet.
We ask that all of our guests be mindful of our friends with food allergies and keep food to designated areas i.e. the cafe. disinfectant wipes are provided throughout the space to wipe down surfaces and toys at your discretion. Wet Wipes are provided for hands after eating, as these have shown to remove allergens effectively.
How we stay clean
In an effort to be friendly to our bodies and environment, we use natural cleaning products when possible for the daily cleaning of our space. disinfectant wipes are available for wiping down toys, surfaces, and hands, as this further decreases the spread of germs and allergen exposure.
Do you have a parking lot?
We do not have a parking lot. Please use street parking, which is free. In addition, there are several public transit routes that are within close walking distance to our space, including the 15 trolley, and 7, 48, and 32 bus routes.
Is the space handicap accessible?
Yes! Our Handicap lift accommodates guests who use a wheelchair, by providing easy access to our mezzanine level.
What are your holiday/inclement weather hours of operation?
We are open Tuesday through sunday, and are closed Mondays and some major holidays. In the condition of inclement weather, we will determine safety for play, and close if need be. We will announce this on our social media accounts as soon as we make the call. We are also subject to staff holidays on occasion (aka self care). We will announce these dates in advance.
