Daycare is Open in the offseason too !


Mt. Hood Meadows is one of the only resorts in the nation to offer state-certified childcare for infants as young as 6 weeks old. Beginning May 1, Daycare is open Monday-Thursday (except Memorial Day - May 29th, and July 4th) from 8 AM - 4 PM, with extended hours available. Our staff-to-child ratio is a minimum of one staff member for every four infants and toddlers up to 30 months, and one staff member for every 10 children ages 30 months to 11 years.

Bring the little ones up for the day to enjoy the fun Mt. Hood Meadows Daycare has to offer. We just ask that you stay within an hour's drive to the resort. You are also welcome to work remotely from one of our lodges. However you spend your day, you will enjoy a view of Mt. Hood!

The 3,544-square-foot facility has room for 44 children. Drop-in care is available to infants as young as 6 weeks old through school-age children up to age 11. Infants and toddlers will follow their own schedule as we can within a group setting, while preschool and school-age children will have a mix of free and structured playtime. We encourage enriching activities that support friendship, sharing, and learning, with a new theme each week.

Please note: Mt. Hood Meadows is a state-certified childcare facility. Snacks and lunch will be provided if your child can eat what we offer. We are a nut-free facility. Our weekly meal menu is posted in the classroom and in the Daycare Lobby and is available via email upon request.
