What to Expect Upon Arrival

  • Current Capacity: Limited to 18 people (based on state guidelines of 8 persons per 1,000 square feet)

  • All guests (parents & children) will be asked to wash their hands in our cafe kitchen upon arrival, as well as before they eat

  • Adults will be asked to verbally complete our health screening questionnaire on behalf of their families

  • Adults will need to resign our waiver (first visit post March 2020 ONLY), as there is now a COVID-19 clause added

  • Per the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, masks for ages 2-5 at the discretion of the adult (see below masks FAQ).

  • For drop-in play sessions, we ask for your consideration of other guests and have your age 2+ child wear a mask while inside Room to Bloom, if they are able to.

  • For private events (private play sessions & birthday parties) please use your discretion on masks for your age 2+ child with what your group is comfortable with 

  • Masks required for ages 5+ for the safety of your guests and our employees

  • Socks are still required for all children & adults in the play area

  • A deep clean, including all toys and equipment sanitized, will be completed after every play session

PRICING CHANGE

We are not increasing our prices post-COVID with one exception. We will now need to charge the sibling price for any extra adults. Each child's paid admission comes with 1 adult admission.

  • If you are paying for 1 child + 1 sibling that would include 2 free adults. 

  • If you are paying for 1 child and have 2 adults, we will need to add the sibling admission price of half off

  • PUNCHPASS PERK ALERT: If you have a 5 visit/10 visit punchpass or an unlimited membership we will NOT charge for the second adult as a perk of prepaying. 

  • Thank you for your understanding! 

OUR CRITICAL ASK OF ADULTS

  • We have always had a "mouthed toy" bin in the kitchen area and baby room for caregivers to drop in any toys that were in a child's mouth - but now it is more important than ever to please put into the bin ANY toy that your child put in their mouth or that you wouldn't want another child to play with until it was cleaned. 

  • Employees will be giving space/ distance to families playing so we ask for your assistance in removing used toys from active play

 

Cleaning & Disinfecting

  • Our regular deep clean will be completed after EACH play session

  • Every loose toy will be sanitized after every play session by soaking it in our BRU-TAB disinfectant for a minimum of 4 minutes

  • Every surface (including play structures, rock wall, pikler triangle, cafe tables/seats), door handles/doorways will be sprayed with our BRU-TAB disinfectant after every play session

  • Staff members will follow an updated cleaning checklist to include COVID-19 CDC cleaning recommendations.

Masks

Per the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

Do children need to wear face coverings or masks?

  • Children under the age of 2 should not wear face coverings or masks.

  • Face covering use by children 2 years of age and up to the age of 5 are encouraged but should be at the discretion of the child’s parent or guardian at this time.

  • Parents and guardians should ensure that the mask fits snugly and does not obstruct a child’s ability to breathe.

Who is exempted from wearing a face covering?

  • Exceptions for wearing face masks include situations that may inhibit an individual from wearing a face-mask safely.

  • These may include, but are not limited to: 

    • Those who cannot breathe safely; 

    • Those who, due to a behavioral health diagnosis, are unable to do so; 

    • Those communicating with people who rely on lip-reading;

    • Those who require supplemental oxygen to breathe; and

    • Those who are exercising outdoors and are able to keep physical distance from others.


How does Massachusetts define a medical condition? Must individuals provide proof?

  • Medical conditions that prevent use of face coverings include difficulty breathing because of lung and respiratory conditions, conditions that require supplemental oxygen, and behavioral health diagnoses that make someone unable to wear a mask. 

  • You are not required to provide proof of your condition.
