Day Care


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 Wild Mountain Day Care, a licensed childcare center (CA License #093600514) located right at the base of the mountain. 

  • Ages - Half and full day childcare is available for children ages 18 months to 5 years old. Don't worry about your child being potty-trained, at Wild Mountain Day Care they don't need to be.
  • Activities - While at Wild Mountain Day Care, 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, sled rides, climbing tunnels, snow paint, and lots of toys.
  • Lunch & Snacks - Parents don’t need to worry about meals either. At Wild Mountain Day Care, children will be provided yummy and healthy, kid-favorite lunches (full-day only) and snacks.
