Kids' Club Las Vegas invites fun with its elaborate custom-built indoor playground, bouncing structures and party potential. But the new Centennial Hills family entertainment center, 5831 W. Craig Road, Suite 103, doesn't play around with security and sanitation.
The members-only clubhouse opened June 2 under partnership of three mothers who saw a need for a clean and safe indoor playground in Centennial Hills.
Each child member is assigned a barcoded picture ID, which must be swiped upon entering and exiting the club. The action must occur in conjunction with a parent or guardian entering a four-digit code to open a security door to enter the club.
Once inside the 8,000 square-foot center, 13 video cameras monitor every nook and cranny of the facility , co-owner Jennifer Morss said.
"There are no dark spots at Kids' Club," she said.
Children 18 months to 8 are welcome in the clubhouse, and age-appropriate areas are designated.
The Big City area is reserved for ages 5 through 8 and has four levels of climbing structures, tunnels, slides and more. All equipment is washed nightly in a two-hour process, Morss said, and deep-cleaned in a four-hour session each Friday.
Bounce houses and classes are also offered. A lounge area with free Wi-Fi and a concession bar with healthy snacks are offered.
Morss and fellow co-owners Patricia Saavedra and Arlene Sarcoyan sought to please mothers such as themselves.
"Moms can come here, let the kids play and get work done," she said. " We are created for parents and for kids. We want everyone to be happy."
Saavedra, who works for a local nonprofit group with Morss , said her focus changed dramatically when she had children.
When the former executive for a home builder was pregnant with her first child seven years ago, she had a "nanny, a nanny car and backup day care" set up to maintain her career.
As soon as her daughter was born, Saavedra canceled it all and became a stay-at-home parent.
The new perspective highlighted areas where Las Vegas lacked: community support for mothers and safe, indoor play for kids. The Centennial Hills resident would crisscross the valley for indoor playgrounds, family-oriented amusement centers and gathering places, she said.
Saavedra, Sarcoyan and Morss had a similar solution, Saavedra said.
"We thought, 'Why not have one place to go ?' " she said.
Although it has been open about two months, Morss said her heart melts when she sees bonds of trust being formed with her staff and members.
Employee Prisma Baca has a bit of a fan section, she said.
"The kids just love her," Morss said. "They walk in and shout her name. From the first day we we opened, they felt it was their clubhouse and they are comfortable."
In addition to membership options, Kids' Club offers after-school and parents' night out events and day passes.
The owners bring their children to the center often to play, they said.
"I walk into this place and think, 'Thank goodness I have this,' " Morss said.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. Membership fees range from $45 per month, plus a $25 registration fee and $20 for each sibling per month, up to an ultimate package, which includes Parents Night Out, Arts and Craft Saturdays and discounts on tumbling classes, concessions and party packages.
