Most of our guidelines boil down to The Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated, whether that’s RSVPing for an event or keeping your sick kids at home (they’d rather be there anyway).
We totally get it—kids are unpredictable. But as a courtesy to the fellow parents who volunteer to host our events, please RSVP if you’re planning to attend an event. (Because we host hundreds of events a year, you don’t need to RSVP “no” to everything you’re not planning to attend. Just say “yes” if you’ll be there.) If things change, change it to a “no” as soon as you can.
Kid germs spread like wildfire, so when in doubt, just keep them home. If you’re on the fence, ask yourself: “If this was someone else’s kid, would I feel comfortable with them playing with my kids right now?” We promise there will be another playdate another day.
Although we make every effort to keep our events as safe as possible, you are ultimately responsible for the safety of your kids. AFC bears no legal liability for the safety of you or your children. We're also not responsible for the loss, theft, or damage of your personal property. If it's important or treasured, perhaps leave it at home (or safely tucked away if you're hosting).
AFC recognizes that even when parents can't be with their children, their kids still need enriching activities to attend! We welcome alternative caregivers (such as a private nanny or grandparent) coming to child-centered playdates and programs instead of a parent. We're happy that your kid won't miss out on all the fun!
It’s a small island. You’re going to see each other again, so let’s all be good to each other.
By joining AFC, you imply consent to these Rules and Expectations! Thank you!
