Childcare During Your Workout


For Kids Ages 3 months - 6th grade

For the convenience of our Members, The J offers flexible and convenient childcare during your workout. Formerly known as The Park and The Zone, with our newly renovated and expanded space, we are proud to now welcome you to The J Clubhouse! We still have two dedicated space for your kiddos but with brand new amenities.

The Little J Clubhouse offers engaging playtime and sensory opportunities for your younger children, ages 3 months up to 5 years. Our caring staff interact with your kids and gets to know them like family. Explore, color, or just play in our newly remodeled room near Group Ex Room 2 (to the right when you enter the Clubhouse). The Big J Clubhouse (to the left when you enter the Clubhouse) is a more active area for older kids ages 5 up to 11 years. Here we introduce them to exercise and active play. With the grand opening of our expansion, we now have a two-story slide, rock climbing wall, and 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 during your workout!

Safety Procedures

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 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.

Here are a few more things you should know before you visit!

  • There is one entry and check-in point for both Clubhouse spaces. Please use this main door for all entry and exit.
  • Please make sure you are checking in your kiddos on the computer check-in system.
  • Please bring socks and a water bottle to utilize the spaces in The Big J Clubhouse.
  • Due to COVID safety restrictions, we can only have 10 kids per space at a time. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Please check the counter (above) or call before you arrive for your workout.
  • We are also asking that all parents always remain behind the gate. If you would like to watch your child on the course or slide, you are welcome to watch there or through the windows!


The Little J Clubhouse

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.
