    I don't know if I will be able to leave my 2 year-old in the child care. If i book it before I go but then she cries and I can't leave her, do I still have to pay? Is it too full to schedule once you get there and see activities? Any good experiences?

    Hi Traci,

    I completely understand where you are coming from!  It can be very difficult to leave your little one in the care of others - and even harder if they appear upset when doing so. 

    First of all, I have to mention that I recently toured the nursery facilities and found it to be extremely pleasant and full of very happy children.  The counselors were engaging and interacting with the children and I was very impressed with their attentiveness.

    Personally, I think that if you are considering it - you should go for it.  I would make the reservation, and the worst-case scenario is that you can't go through with the reservation and lose out the fee paid...which is really a small price to pay if it makes you and her feel better.  On the flip side, maybe she and you will be just fine and you'll enjoy a few moments to yourself!

    So I suggest making the reservation as soon as your booking window opens.  Cancellations may be made without penalty up to 12 hours in advance of reservation.  If you don't pre-book, and decide it may be okay once onboard, simply inquire about availability.

    I hope this helps - good luck with your decision!
