What is the Difference Between a CIT and a Counselor?

This is another question that we get all the time:  “Do you have any CIT’s working with my child?”

Answer:  Our corporate policy is that we do not work with CIT’s.  I know it would be a great learning experience for them but want to provide the best and safest experience for your child so we only use counselors.

Ok, so what is the difference?  A CIT is normally a teenager under 18.  By law, anyone who is legally able to work with children must be at least 18 years of age.  As such, we only hire staff over the age of 18.

All of our staff are:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Background checked
  • CPR and First Aid certified
  • Has completed our Leadership Training Program

If you have any other question, please feel free to ask.

Should I Come Watch My Daughter Who is in Kindergarten?

This is a question that we get A LOT and it is completely normal; probably, 50% of our parents with children in this age group ask!

Answer:  It is actually better for you not to be with your daughter during class for a few reasons:

  1. You really want her to learn how to be an active member of a new group as well as listen to the instructors.  If she sees you, she will run to you and not listen to the instructors or participate in class.
  2. We do not allow parents near the class as we have a strict policy about any adult with the children must be background checked.

I hope this helped and if you have any other questions, please fell free to ask.
