How It Works

Wii, games, and more fun!



Parents are asked not to enter Kids Corner during drop-off and pick-up unless a child needs to be changed, is crying, or to drop-off/pick-up infant carrier. Parents are welcome to come in and spend time with their child during the first few visits.

Since we are not a licensed daycare, Kids Corner cannot change diapers. Staff will find the parent if a child’s diaper needs to be changed.

Due to so many allergies, please leave snacks at home. If we are doing a special snack, we will let you know. If you are dropping off a sippy cup or bottle, please label with your child’s name.

Please no outside toys except small stuffed animals. Electronic games are allowed in Club 1185. YMCA is not responsible for lost or damaged items. Must be age 7 and up to play the Wii.

If child is not walking, an infant carrier must be provided. All children must be wearing socks or shoes.  Tennis shoes are preferred on days when there are children’s exercise classes. No strollers are permitted for space reasons.

We want to do our best to not spread germs, so we wipe down all toys after each day. Help us reduce sickness by allowing your child to be fever/diarrhea free for at least 24 hours before returning to Child Watch.

We will do everything possible to help your child adjust. If a child cries for more than 5 minutes, we will come and get the parent to try and settle them down.
