Drop-In Child Care

Due to COVID-19, the PlayTown Drop-In Child Cares are not open at this time. Stay tuned for updates! For information regarding our current offerings, facility hours, and safety guidelines during this time, please visit our Fitness Facilities Re-Openings Phases page.

The Fercho and Schlossman YMCAs provide short-term drop-in care for members with children ages six weeks through eight years. For up to two hours per day, children can play in a safe, stimulating and enriching environment while their parents/guardians work out! Members must remain in the building while their children are in our care. Both locations are staffed during peak membership usage times. No reservations are required.
