Here is some information to help make your visit as smooth as possible. If you have any questions, call us (414) 563-PLAY (7529) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Upon entry to our play cafe, you are required to remove your shoes. You are required to wear socks at our cafes (no bare feet). This helps keep our play areas clean for your little ones. If you forgot your socks, we have some available for purchase. We follow the CDC and local Guidelines for mask wearing. All guests over 3 years old are required to wear masks. Kids older than 2 years old are strongly encouraged to wear masks. Guests are also asked a verbal health screening and asked to wash hands before being allowed into the play area.
We are also a food safe environment - meaning we don't allow any outside foods. Our menu is currently under transition to better suit current community needs. We do have a variety of options for snacks and lunch available.
One of our top priorities in our space is the safety and health of our families. We've always worked extra hard to keep our space clean and sanitized for you and your families. We use a combination of disinfecting cleaners (EPA approved) throughout our space and we partner with health-conscience brands to bring you kid-safe, environmentally healthy play time.
* High touch surfaces are wiped throughout open play times *
• Toys are rotated and sanitized daily *
* All play surfaces are sanitized between use/play sessions *
* Floors are mopped and/or steam cleaned at least one time per day *
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we're making sure to closely monitor CDC recommendations and updates. At this time, our cafes are open. We're continuing to put cleanliness as a top priority in our routines and have added additional safety measures.
We need your help too. DO NOT bring your family to our space if any of you are feeling ill, are contagious, or are still recovering. We require all our guests to wash or sanitize their hands when entering our space. We have additional hand sanitizing pumps and sprays displayed for guest use throughout play time. We follow standard health recommendations - you should be fever-free & symptom-free (without aides) for at least 48 hours before going back into public.
Please refer to each of our cafes for our most up-to-date mask policy.
We are continuing to limit the amount of guests allowed in our cafes. Due to these limited quantities of guests, we recommend purchasing play reservations in advance. Walk-ins will be welcome on a first come, first serve basis, until we hit our limited capacity. View our play schedule on our Events Page >>
We will continue to monitor the CDC updates. For additional information on preventative measures, visit the CDC web site at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP & SUPPORT!!
Safe Play Policy / Caregiver Supervision
Play nice. We don’t allow rough play. If you notice any dangerous behavior, please alert our staff right away.
Little Sprouts Play Cafe is not a child care facility. While we love having your children explore our toys & equipment, parents and caregivers are responsible for supervising their children at all times.
Shoe-free… What does that mean?
Our space is a socks only facility. Upon entry to our play cafe, you are required to remove your shoes. We do require you to wear socks though. This helps keep our play areas clean for your little ones. If you forgot your socks, we have some available for purchase ($2.50/pair) and some available to rent ($0.75/pair).
All party celebrations must be reserved by booking the facility as a private party. Visit our Birthday Party page for more information. In addition to offering birthday parties, our space can be rented for baby showers, family reunions, etc.
Our Illness Policy
No sick kids! In an effort to keep our visitors safe and healthy, Little Sprouts Play Cafe LLC reserves the right to refuse admission to obviously ill children. If your child is too sick to go to school, they are too sick to come to Little Sprouts Play Cafe. We follow the same guidelines as our local schools. Your child must be symptom-free and fever-free for at least 48 hours before coming to play!
Please don’t allow your child to bring any toys, books, costumes, etc into our bathrooms. Also, make sure that you and your child wash your hands before returning to the cafe or play space.
We require all diaper changes to occur in our bathrooms ONLY. Our bathrooms have changing tables and specific diaper trash receptacles. If you need any diaper changing supplies, ask our staff! We try to keep extra diaper supplies on hand for when they may be needed.
We do not allow carry-in foods. To protect our guests with food sensitivities, our goal is provide a safe food environment. We offer gluten-free food options and avoid products made with nuts. However, we cannot yet guarantee that our menu items are not prepared or processed in a facility or on equipment shared with peanut or tree-nut products. Parents are responsible for selecting appropriate food and drink menu items for their child and for monitoring their child while they eat.
Keep all food and drink at our cafe tables. Food and drink should not be around the play cafe toys or play areas.
Clean up after yourself and your children. This simple step helps us keep our space clean and safe for future guests. If you notice a dirty toy or your child has put a toy in his/her mouth, please place that toy in our dirty toy bin. Our staff will sanitize it.
Can children 7+ come to Little Sprouts Play Cafe?
Of course! However, in order to keep our play areas safe for our smallest visitors, we ask children 7 years old and older to play very gently with our younger guests. Children over 7 years old are charged a discounted admission.
Is there parking at Little Sprouts Play Cafe?
Yes! We have parking lots at both Shorewood and Mequon. In addition to the parking lot right outside our front door, there is also plenty of street parking at Shorewood.
That means no gossip… no judgement. Our main goal is to foster an encouraging environment when kids and parents can connect. If there is a situation that needs addressing, please involve our staff members to intervene. We’re here to help support all of our families.
