We’re Doing It Again! Giggles Grand Opening in Charlotte, NC December 29

When we opened our flagship Giggles Drop-in Daycare in Wilmington, NC, we knew that we were filling a need in the community. We were also new parents, and we needed a flexible option for childcare that didn’t involve enrolling in a preschool or daycare for the entire year. Giggles was born, and it became our third child.

Like any baby, it grew faster than we expected. We’re excited to announce that the newest location is opening on December 29, 2019, in the Ballantyne neighborhood of Charlotte, NC.

Here are the details for the grand opening celebration:

Where: Ballantyne Village Shopping Center

14815 Ballantyne Village Way, Suite 180

Charlotte, NC 28277

When: Grand Opening December 29, 2019

12 pm – 4 pm

During the grand opening, customers will be able to take a tour of the 3,400-square-foot facility, meet the staff, check out our custom treehouse and other dedicated play areas and get to know the center. We’ll have snacks, activities, games and prizes.

The grand opening celebration is free to the public. Come on over any time between 12 and 4 pm for some playtime and fun. Take this time to ask questions about our drop-in care or register your children so that you can use our services at your convenience.

About Giggles in Charlotte, NC

When we found the newest Giggles location in Ballantyne Village, we knew that it was meant to be. The shopping center and office plaza features a comprehensive selection of retailers and services, and it’s a perfect place to drop off the kids while you do some shopping, head to an appointment, sit down for a meal or get a massage.

There is plenty of parking on-site, and it’s easy to get in and out to drop off and pick up your kids. We’re a short drive from downtown Charlotte and are close to many of the residential neighborhoods in the area.

Hours of Operation

Beginning on December 30, our hours of operation are as follows:

Monday-Wednesday 8:30am-9:00pm

Thursday 8:30am-10:00pm

Friday & Saturday 8:30am-11:00pm

Please note that we close at 5 pm on December 31, and the facility is closed all day on January 1. After that, we’re up and running with our regular hours.

What We Offer

It seems that everything, from food delivery to TV shows, can be accessed on demand these days. But there aren’t too many options for on-demand childcare. Daycare centers require a level of commitment that not all families need. In order to keep a nanny or babysitter, you need to offer regular hours.

But our lives are getting busier, and parents need flexible options for childcare. Sometimes, you need someone to watch your child while you go to the dentist, go Christmas shopping or just relax for a minute without having to keep an eye on the kids.

Gyms and churches have childcare, but the hours are limited, and you can’t exactly leave the building to get some time for yourself while your kids play.

Giggles offers on-demand, flexible and affordable childcare options that go beyond a parent’s night out. We have several areas that are designed for age-appropriate play, including toddler spaces and a big-kid room. We will be launching an after-school program in the fall of 2020. Children enrolled in this program will be picked up from school and have a chance to play and get homework support while they’re in our care.

Another popular option is our summer camps. These are different than most summer camps in Charlotte because:

  • We go on daily field trips
  • Our teacher-to-child ratio is low
  • Prices include a camp shirt (which we wash every day), all activities, food and water

Stay tuned for our spring break camps, which will be available in 2020.

How Giggles Drop-In Childcare Works

According to NC child care laws, a drop-in daycare center can provide up to four hours of care for your child each day. If you need a little extra time, that’s ok—we’re flexible. Talk to us about your needs when you come in or at our grand opening celebration.

Once you register online, you can come in any time that we’re open to drop off your kiddo. You don’t have to call us in advance or set up an appointment. This is one of the most flexible daycare options around.

We offer a variety of prices and packaging for individual children and siblings. Click here to learn more about the plans and pricing at our Charlotte drop-in daycare location.

Our Charlotte drop-in daycare facility can also be booked on Sundays for private birthday parties. Kids will have a blast when they have all of our play areas to themselves. Parents can relax, knowing that their children are safe and enjoying themselves.

Don’t forget to RSVP for our Grand Opening Celebration on Facebook. Feel free to invite your friends. We can’t wait to meet our Charlotte, NC family!
