AGE

 Age recommendation for play at Lidia’s Play Cafe is 0-6 years old.  

SUPERVISION

  

Parents/guardians must supervise their children at all times whether they choose to do so from within the playspace area or the cafe sitting area. This is to ensure children do not hurt themselves and are following the playspace rules. A one time waiver of responsibility is required to be signed before a child enters the playspace area. To save time during your initial visit, you may fill out the waiver ahead of time via the waiver form below. 

SHOES

Each participant (parents/guardians & children) must remove their shoes and wear socks inside the play area. Children and parents are also encouraged to stay in the play area during playtime and put on their shoes when stepping out. We would like to keep the play area sanitary and dirt free during your stay, which can result from socks being worn both inside and outside of the play space.

SICK POLICY

We care about keeping our community safe. Please do not bring your child to Lidia’s Play Café if they are sick, contagious or showing other symptoms of an illness. If your child is recovering from a virus, remember that standard procedure calls for a 24 hours FEVER FREE period, without the aid of medication, once the fever breaks. Your child may visit Lidia’s only after he/she has been free from signs of illness or symptoms for at least 24 hours.

SCHEDULE & CLOSINGS

 Lidia’s Play Cafe is open seven (7) days a week. Any changes in schedule due to holidays, birthday and other special events, inclement weather etc. are published on our website and on our social media outlets.
