The safe, stimulating environment of the Childcare Center is a lifeline for working parents, class-taking moms and date-night couples alike.
Welcoming ages 3 months to 7 years, this bright, first-floor haven is staffed by friendly childcare professionals and features a range of educational toys, games, movies and a nap room. There is also a Mothers' Room for nursing mothers.
The Childcare Center is about much more than looking after kids for a few hours.
Staff lead children in a curriculum of intellectual, physical and artistic exercises to help stimulate creativity and improve motor skills.
- Early-infant stimulation development: promotes eye, neck and sensory development through activities like "tummy time" and bicycling.
- Toddler stimulation development: improves posture and balance using building blocks, shape-fitting exercises and games.
- Kids' creative mind: fosters creativity through a range of activities, from arts and crafts to outdoor activities.

Admittance to the Childcare Center is restricted to Club staff, parents of children at the center and those authorized by parents to drop off and/or collect children in their place.
Authorized persons require a letter of authorization from the parent and must provide ID upon arrival at the center.
Children should be in good health when arriving at the Childcare Center, but should remain at home if they are showing cold or flu symptoms, such as vomiting or a fever, or suffering from an infection, diarrhea or a communicable disease.
If a child becomes sick while at the center, the parent will be contacted to collect the child immediately.
In the event of an emergency, the Childcare Center will contact the Club's own emergency response team.
The Childcare Center has comprehensive general liability insurance (¥5 billion per occurrence) for premises and operations. This coverage includes any kind of sponsored activity or service rendered by the insured.
If a child behaves aggressively toward other children, the child's parent will be informed. If the behavior persists, the parent will be asked to refrain from using the Childcare Center for as long as the same kind of behavior is a possibility.
If a child is prone to aggressive behavior, the parent should inform staff beforehand.
Parental separation crying is normal. Ideally, children should spend shorter periods of time at the Childcare Center at first to allow them to get used to the staff and environment.
If a child cries continuously for more than 30 minutes, staff will seek the advice of the parent. If the crying persists, staff will request the parent to collect the parent.
