No, Green Kids does not administer regular medications of any kind. Certain life saving medications (EpiPen) will be administered. Additionally, please do not send in any medication for children to self administer.
Please be curtious to our closing caregivers and arrive before closing. There is a $1.00 charge per minute, per child when you arrive after closing.
Green Kids is a drop-in play facility and not a daycare, so we are mandated by the NC guidelines for drop-in care.
No, no appointments needed!
We accept cash, check, Master Card, Visa & Discover
Each center offers different play equipment and our rates reflect that. Our drop-in rate is $11.00/hr per child. Our packages below and other programs offered by Green Kids can give families some great savings.
With annual enrollment, an annual fee of $25.00 per family, you will receive special promotions and discounts for Green Kids and the Melting Pot, and the ability to purchase prepaid package hours at a significant savings. For families with more than one child you will also recieve a 10% multi-child discount, applied when more than one child is playing in our center. Because these packages are prepaid, your 10% savings for the second child (20% for the third, 30% for the fourth) comes by less time deducted off your package. For every 1 hour of play the first child will have 60 minutes removed from the package and the second will have 54 minutes removed. We do not round up/down, you are charged to the exact minute. All packages are shared with siblings.
