CHILD CARE OPTIONS AT THE Y

While You Work Out: PlayZone & Energy Factory

Have you considered bringing your children along when you visit your Y? Learn more about our drop-in childcare programs, PlayZone and Energy Factory!

PlayZone is ideal for children beginning at 6 weeks and up to 4 years old. Here, the little ones will have fun with age-appropriate activities in a safe environment. 

Energy Factory is designed for children from 5 to 12 years old. This center is prepared to keep kids active with a fully prepared staff taking care of them while mom and dad are working out. Note: If the Energy Factory is not open, children from 6 weeks to 12 years old can be accommodated in the PlayZone. 

This benefit is free for our YMCA members. If you are not a member, your kids can still use the Energy factory for a $5 fee per child. Parents must remain at the Y facility at all times.

Now, you can take care of your health while we take care of your little ones! Available at Bryan, Eden, Hayes-Taylor, Ragsdale, Reidsville, and Spears YMCAs.

Sign In and Out Procedures
When dropping off children, parents must get a parent band and a child band from the band bar outside the PlayZone door. Parents must write the child's name on the band and the corresponding number from their parent band, then put the band on both themselves and the child.

For toddlers and infants, bands can be placed on the ankle. Please feel free to label bags and car seats with additional child bands. All bands will be removed at pick up. If a different parent is picking up, please alert staff. You may either give staff your band or show your ID to the staff member to pick up the child.

We are currently offering PlayZone by reservation only. Click here to visit our PlayZone Schedule page to reserve your spot.
