What to Expect

  • Nursery check in (drop-off) is between 8:30am-9:30am in the Whetstone building, which is just downhill of the Silver Queen ski lift. Please, expect first day check-ins to be at least 10 to 15 minutes, and 5 minutes every day thereafter.
  • Snowy Bear check-in is between 8:30-9:00am, to allow for time to prepare for the ski lesson.
  • Half day pick-up is between 12:30pm and 1:00pm. Full day pick-up is at 3:30pm.
  • Please bring a copy of your child’s vaccination records with you to the nursery.
  • Families desiring hourly care must drop their children off during the 8:30 am to 10 am registration time period.
  • We allow one pick-up and one drop-off per day, unfortunately we cannot accommodate mid-day visits as these tend to upset the children.
