Finding a sitter for little ones who aren't ready to hit the slopes isn't always easy on vacation.  Sierra-at-Tahoe alleviates this problem by offering Sierra-at-Tahoe Child Care Center (aka Wild Mountain Daycare). Sierra has proudly been providing quality care for our guests children since 1994, here in our licensed facility (CA License #093600514) located right at the base of the mountain.

The Daycare is now proud to offer 3 different experiences to choose from to keep your child safely entertained during your visit here at Sierra-at-Tahoe!


Ages

Professional childcare is available for up to 22 children ages 18-months to entry into 1st grade. Don't worry about your child being potty-trained, at the Sierra-at-Tahoe Child Care Center they don't need to be.

Our Daycare Only Program (does not include ski or snowboard lessons) will be available 8:30am - 3:30pm.

Our NEW “Cubbie” Program is twofold and is for 3-year-old children who are ready for an introduction to either skiing or snowboarding. The cubbies will spend 2+ hours of the day outside playing and being introduced to the beginning elements of either skiing or snowboarding. They will then return to the daycare where they will spend the remainder of their day participating in fun activities.  

Activities

While at the Daycare, children will participate in a variety of fun and stimulating preschool activities. Children will stay busy exploring art projects and construction toys, plus music, dance, and story activities. Young children will love our outside activities too, including adventure walks, snow paint, lots of toys and tons of fun snow play. After lunch, the children will be given the opportunity to rest or take a nap if needed during our quiet time.

Lunch & Snacks

Parents don’t need to worry about meals either. At the Childcare Center, all of the cubbies and daycare children will be provided yummy and healthy; kid-favorite lunches and morning and afternoon snacks.
