UPDATE: Maui Play Care is now Daydreams Drop-In Childcare.
Sometimes moms and dads, or even grandparents, need a little break or get into a bind for childcare… In situations like these, Maui Play Care might be the perfect solution.
What is Maui Play Care? Maui Play Care is a drop-in daycare center for 2 to 8 year olds, (although older siblings can attend with a younger sibling.) It is designed as a solution for short-term childcare needs – such as when you need to be at an appointment, need a couple of hours of free time or you simply want a date night with your spouse.
What makes Maui Play Care so special is that it is state-accredited, and all of the employees have been thoroughly screened and are trained in child development as well as emergency procedures. Security and safety are two main focuses at Maui Play Care. The other is fun for the kids.
I had the opportunity to see Maui Play Care in action last weekend at a 4 year old’s birthday party. It is really set up to maximize fun, learning and play time. There are climb-on structures, some with slides, play kitchen areas, dress-up areas, bouncy houses, a climbing wall and they also show children’s programming on a large screen. The staff was really friendly and kept a close watch on the children as they played. Needless to say, the kids loved it and were exploring everything.
Other highlights include a child-size restroom and the play area is a no-shoe zone for everyone, meaning less dirt and whatnot where the kids will be spending their recreation time.
Overall, I really liked the concept and my visit to Maui Play Care was a good one. If this sounds like a solution for your short-term childcare needs, you should stop by and take a look.
