Helpful Hints

Please note that young children often do find transition difficult, especially in a new environment. Please allow time to get your little one settled in at Cubs. We encourage you to bring one special item, like a blanket or stuffed animal, to help with the transition. The staff at Cubs is experienced, patient and understanding about separation problems, and everything possible will be done to make your child feel comfortable. Parents are always allowed at the child care and phone calls are welcome.

Drop off is 8 a.m.-10 a.m. If you have not arrived at Cubs by 10 a.m., you will be charged for the full day and your reserved spot will be made available to other families.

Illness Policy

  • The health and safety of our guests is first priority and we take this very seriously. Strong health and safety practices are the heart of our child programs. A key to preventing illness in a childcare setting is to form trusting relationships between parents and teachers around sharing important health information about your child’s condition when they are admitted. 
  • If your child has fever, sore throat, diarrhea, or is nauseous or vomiting, they will not be accepted into care. If your child has recently been ill, they must be symptom-free, without the benefit of medications, for 24 hours at US properties (including Stowe)
  • Each child will be observed for common signs of illness at arrival and throughout the day. A child who is ill upon arrival to the facility will not be admitted. Parents or guardians will be notified to pick up their child immediately, if the child becomes ill during their stay. 
  • A physician’s note stating a child is no longer contagious will be required when a child has healing lesions or other symptoms suggestive of communicable disease.


At drop-off you will be required to complete registration forms. These forms require a significant amount of information and will be kept on file for the season. You can save time by printing and completing the forms below and bringing them with you to drop-off:
