Our Junior Room is specifically designed for children who are ages 6 years and older. There are age related board games, video games, a computer, books, and plenty of cozy seating in a quiet atmosphere for your child to
relax after school to unwind and complete their homework.
Due to the nature of our service being an unlicensed childcare versus a day care facility, parents must remain on the premises at all times. It is recommended that children are not left for more than two and one half hours. For safety and liability reasons, only parents and legal guardians, who are members, are allowed to check in and out their own children. Relatives, nannies and friends may not check in or out other members' children.
ClubSport of San Ramon complies with state ratio requirements for unlicensed childcare facilities as follows:
|6 weeks to 2 years
||1 staff member to 4 infants |
|2 to 6 years
||1 staff member to 12 preschool age children |
||1 staff member to 14 school age children |
To check a child into ClubKid, parents must give the childcare attendant their membership number. The parent will receive two numbered tags, one to attach to the child's clothing and a duplicate tag to be kept by the parent to be used to check the child out of ClubKid. In order to avoid confusion, tags should be attached to a child's
clothing rather than jackets, blankets or car seats that will not remain with the child at all times. All children, including juniors, will be assigned a tag in order for capacity limits to be monitored. For the safety of all children,
parents must refrain from entering into the inner childcare area. Pertinent information must be provided at check-in, including the location within the Club where the parent plans to be, and any special instructions.
For the safety and protection of all children, it is important that parents go through the proper procedures when picking up children from ClubKid. The duplicate tag given to parents at check-in should be given to the childcare attendant, and the attendant will retrieve the child from the inner portion of ClubKid. Due to safety reasons, parents are not allowed to enter into this inner portion of the childcare area.
The fee for childcare is $6.00 per hour per child. This fee does not apply, however, for children who are ClubSport of San Ramon members or paying the youth fee. The service is offered for 2-1/2 hours per day per child, and at a nominal fee thereafter up to a maximum of four hours.

Health issues are a concern for everyone. ClubKid relies on each family's thoughtful assessment of their child's health. In order to assist you, we have provided you with the following helpful guidelines which our staff will use to ensure a healthy environment year round.
- Fever: Any temperature above 99 degrees or severe subnormal temperature.
- Cold: A runny nose with colored discharge is the most common sign; Also a fever or loss of energy.
- Cough: Any cough with mucus secretion (a wet or wheezy cough) can spread bacterial or viral infection on the droplets. (Please Note: A dry hacking cough (no droplets) is generally a non-contagious allergy.)
- Rash or Skin Irritation: Poison oak, impetigo, ring worm, cold sores, head lice, and communicable diseases (measles, chicken pox, mumps, etc.) often have rashes or itching as symptoms. Please Note: Food or other allergy irritation must be substantiated.
- Diarrhea: Loose, very watery, or mucus filled stools.
- Vomiting: Recurring or projectile vomiting with a fever.
- Pink Eye: Any unusual irritation of the eye or mucus membranes (such as conjunctivitis).
- Allergies: If a child has allergies and is therefore exhibiting flu symptoms but is not contagious, a doctor's note is required.
ClubSport staff will assess each child's health upon arrival into ClubKid each day. They will discuss the health problems with the parent. The staff may use discretion in accepting a child who shows signs of illness. Please
inform ClubKid of contagious illnesses contracted by your child (example: lice, chicken pox, measles, etc.). The health guidelines apply to the ClubKid staff as well so that they do not infect children or other staff. Parents must accept the judgment of the staff regarding these guidelines.
Each child using the childcare service at ClubSport must have a current information/waiver card on file. Any special medical conditions, including allergies, should be noted being as specific as possible. It is important for parents to keep these cards updated with current information.
Newborn infants may utilize ClubKid at the age of six weeks. Before a newborn may be checked into childcare, a six-week doctor's release or copy of a birth certificate must be provided. Newborns up to the age of three months will be allowed to stay a maximum of 90 minutes per day. Parents are asked to make sure the baby is fed and changed.
Children must be signed in and out on daily sheets. You can leave any special instructions with the childcare
Parents must remain on the ClubSport premises at all times while using ClubKid. You will be contacted if you are needed by your child. It is recommended that children are not left for more than two and one half hours.
When arriving at ClubKid, children should be fed, dry and properly dressed, including shoes.
For safety reasons, shoes must be worn at all times. If a child has a tendency to take their shoes off, please inform the childcare attendant at check-in.
The maximum number of children allowed in childcare is based on the square footage of the facility. Children must be 6 and older to enter the Junior Room.
There are planned arts and crafts for the children to participate in. Different activities are scheduled according to the age groups that predominate in childcare. Activity themes change monthly, and you can find a schedule of activities in ClubKid.
Included in the planned activities are drop-in Kid Gym classes which are made available to children in ClubKid, ages 3 to 5. Specialty classes are not included. Children are escorted from ClubKid to a studio. Children may be checked out of ClubKid at the end of class with the instructor, but may not be taken while in transit between classes to ClubKid. Children not checked into ClubKid before the beginning of class must be picked up in the studio by the parent at the end of class. Please note: the safety of all children is a primary concern of ClubSport of San Ramon, and being able to account for each child in our care is of vital importance. We appreciate your cooperation in working within our guidelines to ensure your child's safety.
Staff members are chosen for their skill with children as well as their warmth and sensitivity to the needs of the children. All staff are trained in CPR. Should an emergency occur, parents will be notified immediately.
If a child exhibits aggressive behavior toward another child and inflicts physical harm, i.e. biting or hitting, the parent of the aggressor will be notified to remove that child from ClubKid. The second such incident of this type will result in a 30 day suspension of childcare privileges in order to allow time for behavior modification.
Disrespect to childcare attendants or vulgar language will not be tolerated and the parent will be asked to remove the child. The second such incident of this type will also result in a 30 day suspension of childcare privileges.
We ask that personal items not be brought into ClubKid or the Junior Room. If "security" items such as blankets, bottles, etc., are important for the child's tranquility, please mark them with masking tape or permanent marker. ClubSport of San Ramon is not responsible for lost or broken items.
Diaper changes will be performed as needed. However, parents are asked to provide the diapers. Diapers are available for $1.00. If parents would like to be called to come change their child's diaper, if needed, please let our staff know when checking in. Diaper changes do not include those children who wear cloth diapers.
Kid friendly snacks of Goldfish, Cheerios and Pretzels are provided during Snack times throughout the day.
These guidelines are established for the safety of all children utilizing childcare at the Club and are subject to change. Failure of parents to follow these guidelines could result in temporary suspension of childcare privileges. Please address any questions regarding these guidelines to the Childcare Manager or the Club General Manager.
