  • Member Security: Upon your first visit to the Weinstein JCC babysitting room, you will be required to fill out an information form for your child. This form will inform staff of any allergies and who may or may not pick up your child, as well as emergency contact information. If at anytime when you come to pick up your child and the babysitter on duty does not know you, you will be required to show your identification.
     
  • Important! At this young age, children and infants may inadvertently share snacks. In an effort to be proactive to allergic reactions to various foods, we are requesting that parents no longer bring food into the babysitting room. You may send bottles for your child(ren) to drink. Please make sure bottles are clearly labeled. The Weinstein JCC will provide various kosher crackers and/or cookies for snacks. If your child has food allergies, please let us know in advance. The babysitting room is a nut-free zone.
