transitional orientation plan

There is a transitional orientation plan when your child starts Kids Club to helps them adjust to the room and staff, with the goal of building up to an hour and a half visit.

Children 6 months to 1 year
1st visit – 30 minutes

Children 1 year – 4 years
1st visit – 45 minutes

Children 4 years – 10 years
1st visit – 60 minutes In all cases, subsequent visits will increase by 15-minute increments provided the child is adjusting well.

The following guidelines have been established to provide a safe, happy and healthy environment for all children

  • The Kids Club Room is open to children 6 months through 12 years of age on a family membership.
  • Your child can play and have fun for up to an hour and a half while you work out! In order to accommodate all of our members, this time limit may be reduced during peak hours.
  • We ask that all children be signed in and out by parents/guardians.
  • All children will be provided with a Kids Club ID bracelet to wear.
  • Please have your membership card and/or number present when you drop your child off.
  • Parents/guardians must remain on the YMCA premises while children are in Kids Club.
  • Kids Club promotes healthy habits and is a “water only” area. To ensure cleanliness it is a food and drink free zone.
  • Please bring infants in their infant seats and label all pacifiers, car seats, etc. with the child’s and parent’s name.
  • To ensure that the child to staff ratio remains within a safe range, we may limit the number of children in Kids Club.
  • Parents/guardians are responsible for toileting/diapering children. Please come to the Kids Club room promptly if such attention is needed.
  • To protect the health of both children and staff, any child who does not appear to be healthy will not be admitted.
  • When a parent/guardian is needed, please respond quickly.
  • Parents/guardians will be contacted if their child has been crying or visibly upset for 15 minutes. If a child is having behavioral problems, the parent/guardian will be contacted. For the protection of all children, inappropriate or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated and service will be discontinued.
  • Kids Club is loaded with fun toys and games so no need to bring anything from home, we have you covered!
