Unattended Children Policy


The Delaware County Cultural Arts Center (The Arts Castle) is an institution where all patrons can engage in artistic activities safely.

However, due to limitations of space and resources, our staff and instructors are not available to provide adequate security and safety for children outside of the registered class timeframe.

Therefore, it is imperative that parents/guardians drop off and pick up children for classes in a timely manner.

Children should be picked up from class within 10 minutes of the scheduled class completion time.

If a parent or guardian is delayed in picking up a child, prompt telephone notification to The Arts Castle staff is required.

In addition, children who visit the center for activities such as exhibit viewing and special events should always be accompanied by a caregiver or parent.
