Short-Term Child Care

PlayTown has re-opened at both YMCA locations on a limited basis, with increased safety measures and guidelines! For up to two hours per day, kids ages 6 weeks through 8 years can play in a safe, fun environment while their parents work out!

Available hours are limited and care is offered on a reservation-only basis, to minimize contact between households. Reserve a spot using the button below!

Available Time Slots

At this time, PlayTown hours are limited – however, time slots are offered during our most popular Group Fitness classes and peak facility usage times, to make sure you can still get in a great workout! Registrations are encouraged 24 hours in advance.

Safety Guidelines

The safety of our members and staff is our number one priority, so we have modified procedures and added new guidelines to ensure a safe and fun child care environment.

  • Capacity is limited to 12 children per time slot in order to minimize the number of children using the same space.
  • All staff must wear masks, and masks are encouraged for parents dropping off their kids.
  • PlayTown will be deep cleaned before and after each group uses the space.
  • Everyone who enters the YMCA facilities will be screened, including temperature checks.
  • At the moment, children’s snacks are not allowed. Bottles for infants can be brought in case needed, but please bring your child with a full tummy and fresh diaper.
