Laugh, Learn & Play

Laugh, Learn & Play is The St. James childcare center, exclusive to The St. James members. Members receive up to three hours per day of childcare time. Children can enjoy playtime in our 1,725 square-foot childcare center with a miniature climbing wall, basketball hoop, arts and crafts and more or engage in a variety of class programs.

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Laugh, Learn & Play has introduced new safety protocol, implementing two hour time slots to accommodate regular deep cleaning in between sessions. Venue capacity will be limited to 10 children and there will be a minimum of two masked staff members watching the children at each time.

  • Children are limited to one visit per day.
  • Children 0-2 are not required to wear a face mask. Children ages 3+ will require a face mask.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided in LLP and the bathroom will have soap and water for hand washing.
  • Items that are difficult to clean/disinfect will be removed for the time being.
  • Some signature LLP classes may not be available at this time. 


    • Childcare is available in two hour blocks throughout the day. The space is closed between blocks for enhanced disinfecting and sanitization. 
    • Monday - Friday: 9-11 AM, 12-2 PM, 3-5 PM, 6-8 PM
    • Saturday - Sunday: 9-11 AM, 12-2 PM, 3-5 PM
