Altoona Campus Childcare

Childcare Guidelines

  1. There will be a time limit of 1.5 hours per visit.
  2. We strongly encourage children to wash their hands with soap and water before entering the room.
  3. Please take your children to the restroom before checking in to the childcare room.
  4. We will not be changing diapers at this time.
  5. Please label your child’s water bottle, bags, coats, and other personal items
  6. No toys from home may be brought in.
  7. No snacks will be allowed in the room.
  8. If we have to correct aggressive behavior (ie. hitting, biting, throwing toys at others, etc.) more than three times, the parent or guardian must come and pick up the child for the remainder of the day.
  9. If the child appears sick or not feeling well, we will get the parents and not allow them in the room until we have a doctor’s note saying they are cleared to return to Childcare.
  10. If a child shows up and is not feeling well, we do not allow them in the rooms.
  11. If something is left, the parent has 24 hours to claim the item or it will be thrown away.
  12. Staff will use the Youth gym or outside as much as possible.

Our childcare facilities are available for children ages 6 weeks–8 years, with a separate room for non-potty trained kids. We offer age-appropriate toys and activities in a “Character Counts!” curriculum to keep your kids occupied, engaged, and having fun! All of our childcare staff has CPR and first aid training.

Our childcare hours are scheduled to coincide with fitness and aquatic classes. Parents must remain in the facility or be participating in Altoona Campus-sponsored programs while kids are at the childcare center.
