Toys

Please do not bring toys from home. Empire Fitness Centre provide a large range of “shared” toys for children to enjoy. Any toys brought from home will be placed in a cupboard and returned upon leaving.

Disruptive Behaviour

If a child is disruptive, unable to cope with group situations or the daily routine of the child-minding facility, the parent will be asked to collect the child. We need to enforce this guideline as disruptive children upset the other children in the childminding room.

Sick Children

Any child who is sick is not to be brought to the centre. If a child becomes sick while in child minding, the parent will be asked to collect the child.

Area Restrictions

Children are not permitted in the child minding room outside of child minding hours. Children are not permitted in the gym exercise areas. Please feel free to speak with us if you have any concerns regarding these guidelines.
