Play and Learn
What We Do
Our trained staff create a nurturing environment of warmth, friendliness, and freedom. We lead children through a variety of fun, safe playtime activities, including stories, crafts, dress-up, and active play.
Play and Learn is an exclusive member benefit for children 6 weeks-6 years. The participating child must be a Y member; an adult-only membership should be converted to a family membership in order to receive this benefit.
How to Participate
Play and Learn is included in your Family Membership, so there's no need to sign up. Simply scan your child's Y member card when you come in the facility, and bring him or her to the Play and Learn room.
- For ages 6 weeks-6 years only
- Parent or guardian must remain on YMCA property
- A child may stay in Play and Learn for up to two hours each morning and two hours each afternoon
- Available on a first-come, first-served basis
