CHILD CARE OPTIONS AT THE Y

While You Work Out: PlayZone & Energy Factory

When you come to work out at the Y, consider bringing your children along for the fun that awaits them at PlayZone or Energy Factory, the Y's child care program. Children can participate in age-appropriate activities in a safe environment—free for members.

PlayZone is designed for children from 6 weeks to 4 years old, but if the Energy Factory is not open, can accommodate children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. This is a benefit for our members.  

Energy Factory is designed for children from 5 to 12 years old. It is a fully staffed youth wellness center designed to keep kids active and busy while mom and dad are working out. If the child is not a member of the YMCA, there is a $5 fee per child to use the Energy Factory.
