    NEW-WIPPESNAPPERS DISCOVERY PLAY GROUP!

    NEXT PARENTS NIGHT OUT IS 9/24/21

    Build Confidence and Socialization Skills with Wippersnappers Discovery Play Group!

    We are happy to announce the launch of our newest program: The Wippersnappers Discovery Play group.  This program is designed for parents and their children 6 months old to 4 years old to discover, explore, and learn together. In the play group you will have an opportunity to socialize alongside your child with other local parents and children of the same age group in a safe and regulated environment.

    While playing, children will learn and develop important social skills that they will continue to use throughout their lifetime. Things like problem solving, creativity, and willingness to take risks are just a few of the skills developed through play. Children who use their imagination and ‘play pretend’ in safe environments are able to learn about their emotions, what interests them, and how to adapt to situations. When children play with each other, they are given the opportunity to learn how to interact with others and how to behave in various social situations.  See below for dates and to sign up!

    Need a break? Try our Parents Night Out Camp!

    Drop the kids (ages 3-12) off for 3 hours of fun while you parents enjoy an evening out! Let the kids unplug and have fun climbing, sliding and jumping and socializing at the best kids indoor play place in the Northwest. Each evening your child will get to enjoy the Rock Bouldering Wall, and the triple level Play Structure with the popular wave slide, tunnel slides, trampoline room, monkey rings, web crawls, bridges and much more. Plus a dinner of delicious Wippersnappers pizza and healthy snacks. Fun time will include structured activities and crafts. Children must be potty trained. See below for dates and to sign up – see you soon!

    BEGINNING 8-13-21, EVERYONE 5 AND OLDER MUST WEAR A MASK UNLESS EATING OR DRINKING.  THIS IS MANDATED BY THE GOVERNOR OF OREGON.

    Special Circumstances:

    Parents and guardians are required to inform Wippersnappers in writing of any special needs which may affect the child’s ability to participate fully and within the guidelines of acceptable behavior, including, but not limited to, any serious behavioral problems or special circumstances regarding psychological, medical, or physical conditions. Once the notice is submitted, a phone call will be scheduled with the parent/guardian to discuss the special circumstances and whether Wippersnappers can accommodate the circumstances.

    Children should dress appropriately for the activities scheduled. Wippersnappers recommends shorts and a light weight shirt or top, and some type of athletic shoe or sneaker in order to participate in recreational or athletic activities.

    Behavior Management/Discipline Policy:

    Wippersnappers staff will create a fun and safe environment for participants in the program. Praise and positive reinforcement are used as effective methods of behavior management. Children who do not respond to these methods or who are destructive to others or to property will be dealt with in a professional, positive, and timely manner to correct the behavior. The following procedures will be followed for behavior management. All incident reports will be discussed privately with parents/guardians and a copy of each report will be kept on file at Wippersnappers. We encourage self regulation and mindfulness. We will direct a cooling down period if Wippersnappers staff feel necessary.

    1. In the event a child’s behavior is a repeated behavior and cannot be corrected by the Wippersnappers Staff with a verbal warning or other form of behavior modification, a first incident report will be written to document and correct behavior. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the incident.

    2. A Second incident report will be written if the behavior is repeated by or new behavior problems occur with the same child. This report will follow the same process as the first, but a one or two- day suspension could accompany this report, and no refund will be provided for suspended days. A copy of the report will be given to the parent/guardian the same day as the second incident.

    3. A third incident report will be completed using the same process as the first two. The Wippersnappers staff will write this report. Staff will provide this report to the parent/guardian. Incident reports will be discussed privately with a parent/guardian by Wippersnappers staff and/or the Camp Director. Dismissal from a program can occur at this time.

    NOTE: Immediate dismissal from the program can occur at any time given severe circumstances. Refunds for missed days due to a discipline dismissal will not be granted.
