Kid Drop Zone in Gainesville, Virginia

9 Dec

With as many kids that live in Gainesville, Virginia, I have no idea why no one else thought of this sooner. Seriously!

Kid Drop Zone lets you drop your kids off by the hour. So if you want to go on date night, catch up on errands, etc. you can drop the kids off ($7.50/hr). Or if you prefer, you can stay with them ($5/hr) so they can play with other kids. Best of all, it’s in Gainesville. I don’t know anyone who has tried it. But it’s nice to know there’s a place like this nearby. Just wanted to share.

Get details on Kid Drop Zone here.

    I’ve tried it… again and again and again!

    My wife and I dropped our 3 kids off last night for $20 and went down the street for a great dinner at Giuseppe’s (without any kids)! When we got back, those kids were so tired they fell right asleep when we got home.

    I think what keeps me going back is the amazing staff. They don’t just watch the kids, but really play with them. My daughter’s favorite game in the world is hide and seek and a few times I’ve gone to pick her up, the kids and staff were fully engaged in a game!

    so much better than a babysitter.

    My concern is with all the soft materials–bedding, clothing, and pillows–do they wash all of this stuff every single night? If not, then I have concerns about hygiene.
    My 6 year old got hurt on the zip line before I even got in to the play area…I was filling out the paperwork. Then the 4 year old got hurt on the spiral staircase. And my 2 year old needed constant supervision so she wasn’t run over by the older kids (up to age 12) or didn’t try any of the things that were too dangerous for her age…slide, zip line, swing, stairs. That left only the king size mattress for her to jump on, and that got old pretty quick. Plus I’m a bit paranoid about head lice so I was trying to keep her from laying down on all the soft stuff. I would not recommend “dropping off” any child younger than age 4. I also saw a girl age about 10-11 get off the swing and run into the wall because she was dizzy, hitting her head pretty hard on the wall. A 1:10 adult to child ratio really isn’t that good…would you leave ten children with one babysitter?

    I just returned from a child’s birthday party and had to leave early due to the abuse the staff was inflicting on the kids. The party started out well. Then pizza came and the staff was zero help in gathering the kids to go sit and eat. For a group of 30 they had one assist while three sat around and did nothing. Not worth the money. After pizza they started a “dodgeball” game where they took foam fruit pieces and threw them at each other. It started out fine, but then the staff decided they were going to play too. The adults throw a lot harder than the nine year olds and they threw high towards the heads. My daughter had some pieces in a basket she was collecting so she could hunker down and throw them but a staff member wrestled her to the ground and ripped the basket from her hands. She told me this happened two other times that I didn’t see. There is no way I’m going to let an adult who is being PAID to supervise the kids abuse them in such a manner. I left early and will never return to this place. Unless they change their staff do NOT leave your children there. I wish I could give this place negative stars.

    So I finally went to Kid Drop Zone on Sunday. My son is 21 months and my husband and I stayed with him. So it cost us $5 for one hour.

    There were about 12-15 kids and 4 workers inside.

    I was absolutely surprised how much fun my son had. He smiled so much and laughed so hard.

    Definitely nice to have a place like this nearby.
