POLICIES & PROCEDURES

  • The KidZone welcomes children ages 2 months to 10 years old.
  • KidZone is free for members up to two hours per visit.
  • Guest Passes are available for $7. A parent/guardian must be present to sign the waiver.
  • The KidZone can be used twice in the same day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon with a time limit of two hours per visit. 
  • Reservations are required for children 18 months and younger. 
  • Late pickups will result in a late fee of $1 per minute past the reservation end time. 
  • Membership Card or Photo ID must be shared with KidZone desk staff when child is signed in and out. 
  • Only the person dropping off the child may pick the child up unless noted on the sign in sheet at check in. Photo ID required.
  • At this time, masks are NOT required, however they are strongly advised.
  • To reduce and avoid health risks for children, staff, and members, please do not bring your children if they are sick.
  • Parents must remain in the Y facility for the duration of their child’s time in the KidZone.
  • Children must wear socks in the KidZone. 
  • Cubbies are available for children to store their bags and shoes. The Y is not responsible for any personal items.
  • For safety, medical, and sanitary reasons, food is not allowed in the KidZone with the exception of bottles for infants.
  • KidZone services do not fall under child daycare licensing regulation and are not licensed due to the limited number of hours a child is allowed to attend and the requirement that parents remain in the building. 

  • Y programs use positive guidance methods including reminders, distractions, logical consequences and redirection. These skills are taught through consistent rules and age appropriate behavior expectations. Occasionally a child may be removed from an immediate situation until he/she is able to gain control. Repeatedly disruptive or dangerous behavior may result in loss of privileges or activities, suspension or termination from KidZone.
  • If your child is having trouble adjusting to the KidZone and becomes inconsolable, a staff member will locate you within the facility.
  • The KidZone is an inclusive environment and will make every attempt to reasonably accommodate any child based on whatever needs may be.
