MORE THAN A BABYSITTING SERVICE
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.
We are continuing to re-evaluate the timeline to open our Y-Kids centers for member childcare as we know this service is one that families have come to depend on from the Y. Our ability to begin providing drop-in childcare depends on several factors, including local health metrics, the decisions made by our local school districts regarding in-person instruction, and having stable membership revenue that can support the costs of providing free childcare to our members. We are committed to reopening childcare when it is viable to do so, but at this time are not in a position to provide a target date for reopening. We will share more information as it is available. Thank you for your patience and support as our YMCA continues to respond to and recover from the pandemic.
