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.  

What happens if I arrive after closing hours?

Green Kids is a drop-in play facility and not a daycare, so we are mandated by the NC guidelines for drop-in care.

How long can my children stay?

No, no appointments needed! Occasionally, we do have special parties and events that will supersede drop-in rates. In these scenarios we work our best to ensure there is enough capacity for newcomers as well as veterans!

Do I need an appointment?

We accept cash, check, Master Card, Visa, Discover, American Express, Google & Apple Pay!

What types of payment do you take?

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.



How much does Green Kids cost?

Most of our care givers are students working on their childhood education degree or are current educators. All of our care givers have a genuine love for kiddos and are CPR & First Aid Certified. Additionally, all of the care givers who come into contact with your child have passed state and federal background checks.
