Kid City Policies


Being sick is no fun, but spreading it is even worse. We ask parents and guardians to commit to helping us by following these guidelines.

Please do not bring your child if he/she has the following symptoms:

  • Fever (within the past 24 hours)–This includes fevers that are controlled with fever reducers.
  • Vomitting or diarrhea (within the past 24 hours).
  • Rash.
  • Inflamed throat or mouth.
  • Colored discharge from eyes or nose.
  • Coughing or sneezing.
  • Unusual irritability or fatigue.

If your child develops any of these symptoms while in our care, you will be notified immediately and asked to keep your child with you for the remainder of the activity time.


Your child's safety is of utmost importance. Our policies and procedures make Kid City a secure place for them to learn and grow. On arrival at any one of our campuses, our friendly volunteers will help you check-in your child using our secure check-in system. You will receive a security tag that must be used when you return to pick up your child. This ensures that only you and other people you have authorized have permission to take your child from our care.

For more information regarding specific procedures, contact the Kid City leader on your campus.
