If I’m not mistaken, this Kids Lounge has been around for ages, like since MF was a baby and I first brought him to Vivocity. Since MF was too young to be dropped off then, I didn’t pay any attention to this place and forgot its existence over time. But now that MF is older, the idea of dropping him off sounded pretty enticing, so I popped in to find out more.
I was told that kids from age 2 onwards and toilet-trained could be dropped off. The unspoken rule, I believe, is that your kids need to be willing to be dropped off (and not crying their heads off the moment you leave). The lady in the shop said that sometimes they needed to call parents back when the kids needed to poo but could not do it on their own. Of course, if your kid is able to go to the toilet and settle his/her business independently, the staff would bring him / her to the toilet when needed without bothering the parents.
The concept was very simple. Just a room full of toys and a TV to keep the kids entertained with a staff to keep an eye of them and to bring them to the toilet when necessary while the parents did their shopping .
Hubby commented that $15 an hour is a bit expensive. But if you ask me, a SAHM who is perpetually stuck to my kids, $15 is a steal to have someone look after my kids for a while!
So next time you need a breather, KIV this drop-off service at Vivocity!
