TREASURES our million dollar Child Care Center
September 3 - October 14, 2013.
Over the years, Smugglers' has been single-minded in its approach to providing exceptional family vacations. That's why we built our state-of-the-art child care center - TREASURES. We have created a wonderland for infants and toddlers that is more accessible and more convenient for parents. Most importantly, while your children frolic in this fully-licensed center, you can rest assured that we continue to care for them with the same dedication and professional staff that has always been here for your family.
TREASURES has some very special features for both kids and parents including air conditioning, giant fish tanks in every room, a multitude of age-appropriate toys, tiny toilets and small sinks, 5,400 square feet of indoor space, over 4,000 square feet of outdoor playground, one-way mirror viewing for parents, and easy drop off and pick up.
At TREASURES your infants and toddlers are in good hands with our caring counselors. Many of the staff are trained in first aid, CPR, child development and behavior management. And, our child-to-caregiver ratio assures full attention and the best possible care. Entertaining your kids will be no challenge at all!
