We have designed the following child center policies to provide a healthy, safe and secure environment for all children in the facility. Unless required by law, our child centers are not licensed, nor equipped to provide one-on-one care for children of any age. We may limit use of the child center in our discretion, including designated play spaces. We reserve the right to terminate or suspend child center privileges for failure to follow these policies or other directives or instructions from our child center team members.
Use of Child Center. Child center may be used only by members that have added child care to their memberships. The appropriate age for child center guests is from six months to 11 years of age (“child”). A child may use the child center up to one a half (1 1/2) hours per day. Members may only use the child center if they have been added to the membership of a parent or legal guardian or, upon execution of the proper agreement, a grandparent, nanny or au pair (“parent” or “you”). The same parent must check in and check out the child, each time by presenting a Physiq Fitness membership card or government-issued photo identification card with a picture that matches the system profile. That parent must remain in Physiq Fitness at all times while the child is in the child center. If the child center has reached maximum occupancy, you must wait for space to open up.
Late Pick Up. If you pick up your child from the child center later than the time permitted for use, we will, after the third time, suspend your child center privileges for one month.
Security. You and your child must enter and exit together using the proper security gates. For safety reasons, a parent may stay behind the gates in the child center for no more than 10 minutes. You may not take any photographs or video in the child center area. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items from cubbies or other child center areas.
Behavior. To address behavioral issues, we will implement the use of “time-outs” for children two years of age and older and activity redirection for children younger than two. We will page parents if a crying child cannot be comforted within 10 minutes. We reserve the right to terminate or suspend child center privileges for any child who exhibits unsafe or inappropriate behavior.
Clothing and Diapers. Children must be completely covered on top and bottom, including shorts, pants, tights or other covering over diapers and underwear bottoms. Children must wear socks and/or shoes; bare feet are not allowed. Wheels on shoes must be removed prior to entry. Parents are responsible, and will be paged to change their own child’s wet or soiled diaper.
Food and Drink. You may bring into the child center a labeled “sippy” cup with water only or, for an infant, a bottle with milk or pre-mixed with formula clearly labeled with your child’s name. We will not mix formula for bottles. You may not bring into the child center any juice, milk, soda, snacks, candy, gum or other food from home or Quench.
Toys and Electronic Devices. You may not bring into the child center any toys or electronic devices (e.g., cell phones, PSPs, Game Boys, iPods, etc.).
Sick Children. In an effort to maintain a sanitary and healthy environment, we may exclude, or require that you remove, from the child center any child we deem in our sole discretion to be a sick child. If a child becomes sick while in the child center, you must immediately remove the child, whom we will endeavor to isolate until you check the child out. If your child does not attend day care, preschool, or school due to sickness or illness, your child should not use our child center either. We may require a physician’s verification of wellness before a sick child returns to the child center. We reserve the right to determine whether a child is sufficiently sick to be excluded or removed from the child center, but a child who exhibits one or more of the following symptoms is subject to exclusion or removal:
