Important Things To Know...
Children should arrive no later than 9:30 AM and must be picked up by 1:00 PM.
Please send a lunch or snack with drink for your child (we CANNOT mix bottles or warm up food; lunchables, sandwiches, fruit and other "finger snacks" are suitable.)
Please send a change of clothes (in case of an accident or mess) and any diapers, wipes, bibs, etc. that your child will need.
When weather permits we do play outside, so apply any sunscreen or insect repellant before you arrive at PEERS. We CANNOT apply these to the child.
Because space is limited and we fill up quickly we ask that if for any reason you can't make it for your reservation please call the office and cancel. We do keep a waiting list and this allows us to call and offer your spot to someone else.
