Mammoth Mountain is now offering new child care services in the heart of The Village at Mammoth, making it more convenient for parents who want to spend the day conquering the slopes or the night out on the town while giving their children an equally fun experience.
The new child care facility, for ages 2 to 6, makes it easy for parents to ski, ride, shop and dine while the kids are being taken care of in a state licensed facility. The staff is professionally-trained, educated in the field of child development and has gone through background checks. Best of all, the new Mammoth Mountain Child Care facility is within walking distance of lodging in The Village, so parents can easily transport their little ones to the facility, dropping them off and picking them up with ease.
Kids have fun in age-specific rooms with selected activities, arts and crafts, music, story time, games and rest time. Hot nutritious lunches are served as well as two snacks per day. In addition, parents can enroll kids 3-6 years who are ready for the slopes in Ski Lesson Combination Packages.
The resort offers multiple options including an evening babysitting service ideal for parents who want a little romantic alone time together.
