Ensuring the children remain hydrated during tours is essential for their well-being. Here are some policies that we will follow:

  1. Provide Water Bottles: Supply each child with water bottles at the beginning and throughout the tours. Encourage them to keep it with them throughout the trip, and remind them to take sips regularly, especially during breaks.
  2. Scheduled Water Breaks: Plan regular breaks during the tour for water consumption.
  3. Weather Considerations: KiddieCorp will be mindful of weather conditions. On hot and sunny days, we will increase the frequency of water breaks, and remind children to drink even if they don’t feel thirsty.
