Childcare Options During Your Workout
For Kids Ages 3 months - 6th grade
For the convenience of our Members, The J offers numerous flexible and convenient childcare options during you workout. The Park offers engaging playtime and sensory opportunities for your younger children, ages 3 months up to 5 years. Our caring staff interacts with your kids and gets to know them like family. The Zone is a more active area for older kids up to 6th grade. Here we introduce them to exercise, active play, and with the current expansion we will soon have a brand new area to explore, complete with a Ninja Warrior course! We also have quiet areas for crafts, coloring, board games, or homework. You can enjoy your sweat-session knowing you have excellent childcare options during your workout!
The health and safety of our families is of the utmost importance. In addition to our routine cleaning procedures, we have increased the sanitization of toys and play areas. We will have hand-sanitizer stations available, and encourage all Members, including children, to utilize proper hand-washing techniques before and after arriving. Children's temperatures will be taken prior to entry and parents will be asked a few health screening questions.

Park + Zone Capacity
Drop-in babysitting where children are encouraged to climb, crawl, explore, and make discoveries.
Ages 3 months - 5 years
While we do offer up to 2 hours of childcare during your workout, we like to think of ourselves as more than just babysitters. We provide opportunities for your little ones to explore sensory activities, story circles, parallel play, song time, supervised tummy time, and more! You soon feel like "a regular" because our caring staff grows to know and love your child like family.
Thanks to a generous contribution from the Philip and Dorothy Byer Philanthropic Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation, our childcare services include a sunny, plant-filled environment.
