How long can my children stay?
We are a drop-in play facility and not a daycare, so we do have restrictions on the length of time your child can play. Children younger than two can stay up to four hours at a time. Children older than two can stay up to seven hours. NC law requires that you be available by telephone and within 20 minutes of our facility in the event that your child needs to be picked up.
What happens if I arrive after you've closed?
Please be curtious to our closing staff and arrive before closing. There is a $1.00 charge per minute, per child when you arrive after closing.
Will you administer medication?
No, Green Kids does not administer regular medications of any kind. Certain life saving medications (EpiPen) will be administered.
