Child watch is available for children ages 6 months and up. Arrive 15 minutes before class to give you and your child time to get checked in and settled. A Child Watch Information & Liability Waiver form must be on file for any child who participates in the Child Watch program. This form must be filled out and signed by the child’s parent or guardian before the child can play with us during class. You can print at home and bring it in with you to save time or you can fill one out when you drop off for the first time. These forms are kept on file in the Child Watch area for the teacher’s use. Please notify the teacher of any change of information on your child’s form.
Check In & Out Procedures
Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to help settle your child in before class starts. All parents and children must check in with Y2 Yoga staff and complete the sign in sheet before entering the Child Watch area. *Please note that there is a maximum occupancy limit on the Child Watch area and that parents may be asked to wait with their children until a child has been picked up to reduce the occupancy level.
Children should not be in Child Watch if they are ill and children should not return to Child Watch until they have been fever-free and symptom-free for 24 hours without medication. If during your child’s visit we discover that your child has a fever or other signs of illness, you will be asked to leave class to take them home.
Neither Y2 Yoga or the Child Watch teacher is responsible for loss or damage to your child’s items. We ask that you do not bring your child’s toys from home to Child Watch. They may get lost or broken and it is often difficult for a child to share them with other children. Be sure to label all personal items. Medications will not be administered by the Child Watch staff.
Drinks and Snacks
You may bring a sippy cup/drink for your child while they are in Child Watch. We will not provide any snacks or meals during Child Watch hours. Please feed your child prior to coming to class. You may bring a small dry snack in the event that your child becomes hungry during his/her visit.
Because certain foods may pose severe allergic reactions or choking hazards, the following foods are NOT allowed to be brought into Child Watch: Nuts, Peanut Butter, Popcorn, Grapes, Granola Bars that contain Peanut/Peanut Butter. Because Y2 Yoga promotes healthy living and an active lifestyle the following foods are NOT allowed to be brought into Child Watch: Candy, Candy Bars, Soda, Gum.
Inconsolable Child Policy
If the Child Watch staff is unable to console a child after 15 minutes of continuous distress, you will be notified by a staff member. We ask that you please pause your practice and come console your child. We will make very effort to comfort your child, but do not want the child to have an unhappy experience.
A parent or guardian must remain at Y2 Yoga the entire time their child is in Child Watch. This is mandated by the State of North Carolina in accordance with our child care exemption status.
