Drop-In Childcare Ages 3 - 12 years: $15.00/hour/child


Drop-In Hours

Due to increased enrollment in our Half Day and Full Day Preschool Programs, our Drop In hours from September-May are M-F from 12:30-5:30pm. Summer hours are 1:00 pm-5:30pm, M-F. Closed on Saturday and Sundays. 
Please call ahead to make sure we are fully staffed and have availability. We operate on a first come first serve basis.

Please note that all late pick ups are $10/minute/child. 





Children need to be dressed for active play. An extra set of clothing (shirt, pants/shorts, socks, and underwear) needs to be kept in your child's cubby (according to season). If a child still wears diapers or pull ups, diapers and wipes must accompany the child. Socks are required for indoor play.

Personal Belongings

Each child will be provided with a daily cubby intended for shoes, pillows/blanket, and change of clothes. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Therefore, please do not allow your child to bring personal items to the center.

Indoor Play Equipment

There are two play areas inside. One is designed for children 2 - 5 years of age and the other is designated for children 5 - 12 years of age. Kids Cottageā„¢ will enforce these rules to prevent injury. Parents may sign a consent form for children 4 years of age to play on the big equipment.

Snacks or Meals

Provide a snack, lunch, or dinner for your child if they are present during a meal time. If your child has any known allergies, please provide this information. Please use ice packs as lunchboxes are not refrigerated. Pack healthy snacks and lunches. No heat up items allowed except for 6 pm dinner time. All food must be consumed in designated areas. A lunchbox that can hold a sippy cup is preferred. Please label all meal related containers with your child's name.

Diaper Service / Toilet Use

If your child is in the transition of being potty trained, please send him or her with extra pull-ups or diapers to prevent an accident where other children play. We will do our best to accommodate your efforts with consistent "potty breaks" and reminders. Toilet trained children will be allowed to use the restroom at any time and will be monitored depending on their age and ability level.

Accident / Emergency

In the event of an accident, first aid will be administered and an Accident Report will be completed, signed by staff and parent, and filed. Information from the child's records will be used to obtain necessary emergency information. Kids Cottageā„¢ will document all information pertinent to the injury. In case of an emergency, the center will call 911 and contact the parent/guardian.

Sign In / Sign Out Policy

Your contact /emergency information will be stored in our computer. Please keep this updated with your current information. Once stored, we ask that you sign your child in and out at the front desk every day and a photo ID may be required. A signature is always required at drop off and pickup.

What Others Say...

"We have been extremely happy with Kids Cottage and how well our kids have done since being there. Our son was just enrolled in Rehoboth Elementary School and the staff there was very impressed with how well he did on his DIAL screening. When we told them he just graduated from Kids Cottage, they had nothing but good things to say about you all and the children who have come to them from there and how well those children have done. Thank you!"
