Child Supervision

We have child safety ratios in place to keep everyone safe. Children under the age of eight must be actively supervised by a caregiver 16 years or over and children under the age of two must be within arm's reach of a caregiver 16 years and over at all times.

Active supervision means watching your child at all times and being able to provide immediate assistance.
