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! 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!
Drop-in child care is a pay-by-the-hour, flexible use service available to busy parents! Green Kids offers drop-in care for children age 1 year (and walking) to 11 years with extended late night and weekend hours so you can rely on us for child care ANYTIME you need us. No appointment needed, no set schedule, and reservations are not required. You only pay for the time you need, when you need it! We also offer memberships and prepaid discount packages to make it even more affordable!
Yes! Our membership program is a flat monthly rate and applies to the whole family, offering some of the lowest per hourly rates in the Triangle area. We also offer additional sibling discounts as well.

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