INFANT AND TODDLER CARE

6 Weeks to 24 Months: Our nurturing and professional caregivers cater to the youngest guests of Brian Head Resort. The ratio of infant children to staff is 4 to 1. The nursery is equipped with soothing music, swings, age appropriate toys, high chairs, fridge, bottle warmers, a seating area for breast-feeding mothers and a cozy sleeping area complete with cribs and bedding. For toddlers who are used to actively playing until lunch time and are accustomed to taking one afternoon nap per day, our caring staff is trained to tune into your child’s individual needs and help him or her work through any separation anxiety. Our toddler play area is equipped with age appropriate toys, books, music, sensory and craft tables. Toddlers nap on mats after lunchtime; linens are provided. Please check in by 10am to allow your toddler time to adjust to his or her new environment before lunch and nap time.

What to pack: Pre-mixed bottles, pre-filled sippy cups, food, diapers, wipes, spare set of clothing and comfort items (such as a pacifier or special blanket).

Children age 2-5 (Who haven’t started kindergarten): This age group is welcomed by enthusiastic and qualified caregivers who have planned an activity-filled day at the Brian Head Children’s Center. Children will participate in singing and stories, arts and crafts, dress-up play, fun with blocks, games, puzzles, toys and much more. Quiet time is after lunch. The ratio of children to staff is approximately 8 to 1. Mats with linens are provided. Our caring staff is trained to tune into your child’s individual needs and help him or her work through any separation anxiety.

What to pack: A spare change of clothing, diapers and wipes (if needed) and comfort items such as a special blanket, doll or toy.

Wee – Ski Lesson/ Daycare Combo -age 3 (MUST BE POTTY Trained)

This program is designed for young skiers who may not have the stamina to participate in a full private lesson, and for parents who are looking for a lesson program that accommodates a longer day of supervision. Our Wee-Ski/Daycare combo includes childcare, 2 hour lesson, rentals, all day, all mountain lift ticket (not utilized during lesson time), and lunch.

Children begin their day at the Brian Head Children’s Center in the Navajo Lodge, where they are grouped in classes of 2 students to 1 instructor.  Lessons are short (1 hour in am, 1 hour in pm) to meet the limited stamina these young children have and are meant to give a positive first alpine experience to our youngest skiers.  If your child does not enjoy the outdoor experience of the lesson, no problem – – your child will be escorted back to the Childcare Center where he or she will be able to play and/ or rest for the remainder of the day.  The Wee Ski/ Daycare Combo Program allows parents to feel comfortable knowing that, at any part of the day, their child is being cared for by knowledgeable staff at the Brian Head Children’s Center. Parents will enjoy a full day on the slopes, while your child is interacting with other children his or her age.

What to pack: Children must be checked in by 9:30am. Must bring clothes for an outdoor environment including goggles or sunglasses, gloves, and warm, waterproof clothing. Children must have sun block applied upon arrival; it is recommended that they have lip balm in their pockets. No need to obtain rentals for your child prior to arriving at the center as the knowledgeable daycare staff will tech a set of special skis for your child upon check-in.
