Day Care

We Couldn't Leave Them at Home Either - So We Opened Our Own Day Care Center

Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort is one of the only resorts in the nation to offer state-certified child care for infants as young as six weeks old. The Day Care Center operates daily from 9 AM to 4 PM and provides full-day and half-day options for children, as well as ski lessons for ages 3 thru 6. Our staff to child ratio is a minimum of 1 staff for every 4 infants and toddlers and 1 staff for every 10 preschool age child and older up to age 11.

The 3,544 square foot facility has room for up to 46 children. It was designed to be one of the most modern facilities in Oregon, and is also one of the most progressive ski resort Day Care operations in the country. In addition to age appropriate toys, the center offers computers and activities including arts and crafts, music and snow play.

Reservations are strongly recommended for all services and are required for the Midweek Special. Reservations should be made at least 24 hrs in advance of the requested arrival time by calling 503.337.2222 ext. 1374. You will need to have the following information to make a reservation: Your child’s name and age, the date and arrival time for the reservation, your name, phone number and a credit card.
