2014 Babysitting

Currently our hours are

** SUMMER HOURS BEGIN June 23 & Ends August 22
Monday - THURSDAY 8:45 - 11:15 a.m. **
Babysitting will be closed August 25 - 29, 2014

Because here at the Waldo County YMCA families come first, we encourage our members to come to the Y and enjoy our exercise classes, fitness center, or come take a dip in our pool, while your child enjoys time in our babysitting program.

Our friendly and qualified staff will ensure your child’s safety in a positive environment. The kids can play with toys, read books, or have books read to them, color, meet other children and enjoy having snacks together. Familiar children’s songs can always be heard playing and the children love to sing along.

Our babysitting service is a member benefit that is opened to children from 8 weeks to 8 years and is available Monday through Friday mornings. We also offer seasonal evening hours, so the working parent can feel free to come workout, take a class, or swim.

Parents are encouraged to call ahead and reserve a spot. As a licensed facility, we are required to keep a certain staff-to-child ratio in order to provide safe and exceptional care for your child. Our babysitting service is provided by a staff person and volunteers.
