Award-Winning Child Care Programs at Smugglers' Notch Resort
TREASURES is our state-of-the-art, fully-licensed child enrichment center.
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!
Combining the best modern technology with a kid-centered, homey atmosphere,TREASURES Child Care turns it up a notch using Brightwheel software for iOS and Android. TREASURES child care professionals recognize it can be hard for parents (especially new ones) to leave their little ones in someone else’s care. Now, Brightwheel offers added comfort so parents are able to have an instant link to the space where their children can play and grow. In addition to the care of licensed, trained professionals, the staff at TREASURES are thrilled to add to the transparency within the facility. Brightwheel allows for instant updates through photo sharing, record keeping, and communication regarding meals, diaper changes, and activities.
