WHAT IS YOUR SICK POLICY?
Telluride Ski & Golf, LLC (TSG) reserves the right to limit enrollment or refuse admittance to any child who, in TSG’s sole discretion, does not fit into the program due to load limitations, age, adaptability, separation anxiety, causing harm to others, or illness. Any child showing symptoms of COVID -19 or any illness, including the common cold, WILL NOT be accepted into our program until we discuss the proper protocol depending upon the symptom. We will be doing symptom checks on ALL children throughout the day and will notify the parents immediately if any symptoms arise. If, during the day your child shows any symptoms of COVID -19 or ANY illness, they will no longer be allowed in our care and will need to be picked up immediately. We will contact the parents first and then the authorized adult contact. Your child will be isolated from the group, placed in a safe location until a family member arrives to pick up your child.
By the State of Colorado rules and regulations for our program we are required to send children home whom show ANY sign of illness. In order to operate to the best of our ability it is important that our staff and the children in our care remain healthy. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. We see children from all over the world, your understanding and our policies allows us to protect EVERYONE and to provide the best level of quality care. Thank you for understanding.
POLICY for ANY CHILD SHOWING SYMPTOMS OF COVID-19:
Your child cannot return to our program until they have been isolated for 5 days, are symptom free for 24 consecutive hours without the help of fever reducing medication and receive a negative COVID-19 test result that was taken on day 3 and day 5 from the onset of symptoms. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter!
There are no exceptions!
POLICY FOR ALL OTHER ILLNESSES
We will provide you with the proper protocol depending upon the symptom and after we have ruled out COVID-19. The protocol will likely be that your child cannot return to our program for at least 48 hours. Your child will then need to be symptom free for 24 consecutive hours without the use of fever reducing medication or medication of any kind prior to returning to our care.
POLICY FOR SICK CHILDREN
In the event that your child is sick, you must notify Cubs Camp at The Nursery no later than 7:45 a.m. on the day of your reservation. After that time, you will be charged for the space we have reserved for you. Children whom develop symptoms in our care or whom are brought into our care sick will be sent home with NO refund.
If you are concerned your child is showing any symptom(s) of COVID-19, the common cold, or ANY illness, we recommend CANCELLING your reservation ASAP and you will receive a full refund for your entire reservation!
Otherwise your child will be sent home with NO REFUND!
WHAT IF MY CHILD GETS UPSET WHILE IN THE CUB’S CAMP NURSERY?
First and foremost, if your child becomes upset, we will approach your child with patience, love and tender care. We will do our very best to comfort your child. We will review the paperwork for the information you provided us to best comfort your child. If we need more suggestions and guidance we will give you a call immediately. We can discuss the situation together and figure out the best plan moving forward for your child. Our goal is for your child to have a wonderful toddler/cubs experience. We understand this may be your child’s first time away from a loved one and adjusting may be difficult. Furthermore; our nursery staff has the experience to connect the specific needs of children whom need extra attention to positively and successful transition to our surroundings. We have a few suggestions on handling separation anxiety in a childcare setting.
1. Bring a familiar toy or security blanket
2. Arrange a visit to our facility prior to your first day (before/ after our operating hours)
3. Avoid letting this be your child’s first experience away from you. It is helpful if your child has learned to trust other adults (babysitters, caregivers, etc.)
4. Talk to your child about how much fun he or she will have in the nursery!
5. Tell your child where you will be and when you will return
Two great book recommendations for this topic are Anna Dewdney’s Llama Llama Misses Mama or Audrey Penn’s The Kissing Hand. We have both these books in our nursery library and will be happy to read to your child upon arrival with your suggestion.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NURSERY TODDLER PRODUCT AND THE NURSERY CUB PRODUCT? (WINTER ONLY)
Cub Ski Lesson Product
2 ½ years old to 4 years old
Willing 2½ – 4-year old Cubs are welcomed to the slopes for an individual hour-long introductory lesson with passion and love of skiing through personalized instruction with one of our dedicated ski Cubs instructors. The Cubs lesson is intended to teach your child the fundamentals of skiing in small amounts of fun and exciting techniques which have them leave wanting to return and learn more. This is a perfect option for your child to get comfortable in ski gear, learn the basics of skiing and spend time playing on the slopes. Your child does not need to be potty trained to attend the cubs one-hour introductory lesson.
1 year old to 4 years old
Our toddler program is perfect for children ages one year to four years old who are too little to hit the slopes, or those who need a break from the on-snow adventures. Your child will spend the day with one of our loving child care teachers who continuously provide a safe, fun-filled, stimulating environment. Our staff has the knowledge, background and training to provide an inclusive setting. At the Cubs Camp Nursery, your child will play the day away with age appropriate toys, unstructured free play and small group activities. We rarely go outside.
The Nursery Toddler product is solely care for your child. NO LESSON INCLUDED.
Toddler Full Day Product
Care indoors for your child from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Toddler Half Day Product
Care indoors for your child from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
The Nursery Cub Product INCLUDES the ONE HOUR LESSON.
If you’re interested in your child having a one-hour ski lesson through the nursery, you will book your child as a CUB. The Cub Product also includes childcare, if you book it that way.
When you book your child as a full day or half day CUB you receive the full or half day of childcare, plus during the hours of 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. your child will go outside for a one-hour individual private ski lesson. The Cubs One Hour Lesson does NOT include childcare.
Cubs Full Day Product
The Cub Product can be booked for the Cubs Full Day, which is from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. During the hours of 9a.m. – 12:00 p.m. your child will go outside for a one-hour individual private ski lesson. The hours outside of the ski lesson your child will be indoors at our facility.
Cubs Half Day Product
The Cub Product can be booked for the Cubs Half Day, which is from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. During the hours of 9 a.m. – 12p.m. your child will go outside for a one-hour individual private ski lesson. The hours outside of the ski lesson your child will be indoors at our facility.
Cubs One Hour Lesson
The Cubs Product can be booked for just the Cubs One Hour Lesson, NO childcare included. These lessons are reserved on the hour from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NURSERY’S CUB PRODUCT AND THE SKI SCHOOL OTTER’S PROGRAM?
The cubs lessons are very introductory. Our qualified instructors take their time and allow the child to get acquainted on his or her own pace. They typically “ski” for 40ish minutes, by the time they get the gear on, chat about the fundamentals, discuss the basics, go out to ski, and then have time to remove the gear at the end.
The otter’s program through our ski school is a full day program (9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.). The objective is to spend the whole day skiing (on the magic carpet). They come inside for lunch.
Cubs have rest/play time indoors. Otters ski school is specifically skiing and outdoors all day.
More stamina is needed for otters. Cubs isn’t as demanding in the stamina aspect.
Cubs DO NOT need to be potty-trained
Otters NEED to be potty-trained
Cubs can take a nap/have quiet time
Naps/quiet time are NOT available for the Otter’s program
I’m happy to answer any other specific questions you may have or help decide between the two.
I do all things nursery/cubs. The otter’s program is through our ski school, they can be contacted at 970-728-7545 or email at Children@Telski.com.
CAN I ENTER YOUR FACILITY WITH MY CHILD?
During our operating hours, we do not allow anyone in our facility that is not an employee of Telluride Ski and Golf to enter our facility. Each employee is required by the state of Colorado to have a CBI, FBI, and a child abuse neglect trails background check.

WILL MY CHILD GO OUTSIDE?
Winter Season: Unless your child is reserved as a CUB, it is unlikely that your child will go outside. However, on rare occasions we will take a small adventure outside when staff, weather and proper ratios permit.
