General Rules

  • Adult member must remain on recreation center property at all times.  
  • No adults other than staff are allowed in our Kid Zone space. If you need to change a diaper, we ask that you please use the locker rooms or family changing rooms.
  • Please let staff know where you will be in the facility in case they need to find you. An announcement will be made over the loud speaker if you need to return to Kid Zone for any reason. 
  • Snacks and personal items/toys are not permitted in Kid Zone at this time. Your child may bring a water bottle and jacket with his/her name on it.
  • Staff will contact you if your child has a soiled diaper or a bathroom-related accident, has not stopped crying for 15 minutes, is exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms (listed below), or has a significant behavioral problem.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Process

Children will be checked in and out by a card system. When a child is checked in, their parent will need to give staff either a membership card or driver’s license. The card/license will be used to identify the child when their parent picks them up. Staff is responsible for safely storing the cards. At checkout, staff will ask the parent for their name and the name of their child so they can locate the correct card. Staff will ask parents to pull down their mask to reference with the photo on their card.

Health Guidelines

  • CVPRD staff go through daily health checks upon entering CVPRD facilities.
  • Children will have their temperature checked upon entering. 
  • Children must wash their hands immediately upon entering. 
  • All toys/supplies are disinfected before and after use. 
  • Kid Zone is cleaned between sessions to ensure there is no cross-contamination between groups.
  • Social distancing is always a challenge with young children. Staff will encourage social distancing between kids from different households by providing structured activities and spacing the chairs and stations more than 6' apart.

Fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.
