We strive to welcome children of all ages. Currently (as of March 2012), we have two babies, three toddlers, occasional visiting kids, and two babies on the way for May. Each family decides which kind of schooling situation (private, public, charter, home) they want for their children. Lost Valley does not provide schooling for young children.
We ask parents to be proactive and honest with the rest of the community about their expectations about interactions between the children and community residents, and the ways in which the parent(s) are expecting support from the community.
Children and parents will pick up toys and dishes left in the lodge and on the property and put them away in agreed upon places. Parents must be extra vigilant of the ways that their children are leaving spaces, treating Lost Valley or others’ personal property, or affecting community gatherings, business meetings or events that we are hosting.
No bikes, wagons, or other toys will be left on the pathways, as they create a potential hazard in the dark.
Kids’ space in public areas need to be cleaned up after children have been playing there.
