Cancellation Policy
Cancellations may be made outside of 24 hours with a 90% refund per child. Cancellations made within 24 hours will result in full charges, same for any child with a reservation and does not turn up.

Check-in Process
We have made every effort to streamline the check-in process for our guests; however, we do not rush this process, as we want to be sure that we have all of the important information regarding the care and well-being of your child(ren). Please plan to spend 10-15 minutes at the childcare while dropping off your child.

We request that each child bring an extra change of clothing as well as outside weather clothing. We recommend waterproof snow pants, hat, gloves and boots.

Comfort Toys
We welcome comfort toys and blankets and know how important these can be to ensure a successful day for our participating children. We do request that each toy/blanket be labeled. Comfort items may accompany the child throughout the day, during nap time they are prohibited in cribs per state licensing.  We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Parents will need to fill out a child information sheet and liability waiver at check-in. This only needs to be done once per year in the event of multiple day participation.

Parent Involvement
We invite all parents to check-in as often as needed for your comfort. If, however, your child is having a separation difficulties it may be best to keep a reasonable distance while checking in on your child to alleviate additional stress.

There is 10 minute free parking for drop off in Ten Mile Circle, located before the parking attendant, which is where you can also pay for the entire day. This is the closest parking lot to the BBB. In-resort transportation from the Alpine and Corn lots is available for your convenience. The center village drop-off is in front of the Mountain Plaza building where we are located.
