Drop-In Child Care


We offer free drop-in childcare while parents make use of the Y.

Playful, engaging options are plentiful for young children while you exercise or connect with others over shared interests.

More than a babysitting service, Y staff members provide learning experiences in a safe, fun environment. Our childcare providers are trained to hone your child’s fine and gross motor skills, encourage socialization and teach them how to make healthy choices. Parents must remain on-site.

For ages 6 weeks - 10 years. Children attend programs according to their age:

INFANT ROOM | 6 weeks - 11 months
The infant room is based on the individual needs of each child.  It is an introduction and exploration of new things. 
TODDLER AREA | 12 - 23 months
The toddler area focuses on early learning through interactive place, exploration of the environment and the introduction of new materials and activities.
The preschool area provides a group setting appropriate for learning new things.
SCHOOL AGE AREA | 3 until 10 years
In the school age area, children enjoy a rotating schedule of free time and planned activities including arts & crafts and group games!
