Please see below for our safety guidelines, and click on a Y below to see the hours for Kids Zone and Kids Zone Jr.

  • Check In: All children will use their YMCA scan card to sign in and out of Kids Zone. Paper sign in/out has been discontinued to limit contact with high touch areas.
  • Mask requirements: All children 5 years and older are required to wear a mask. If your child requires an exemption, please notify Kids Zone Staff.
  • Handwashing: All children are required to wash their hands or use an approved hand sanitizer prior to entering the play area, after coughing, sneezing and using the restroom & before and after eating.
  • Continuous Cleaning: The YMCA is committed to keeping a clean and safe environment. We are following the CDC-recommended cleaning guidelines for childcare centers. Staff will clean high touch areas throughout the day and will deep clean after hours.
  • Food and Drinks: No food or drinks are allowed in Kids Zone. Staff will provide water for children as requested.
  • Outside Items: Only items that are necessary for the care of your child will be allowed in Kids Zone play areas. Parents are asked to place bottles, diapers, and wipes in a clear, sealed bag labeled with their child’s name.
  • Shoeless Environment: To promote a healthier environment and limit dirt and germs, children using Kids Zone Jr. (ages 6 weeks-5 years) will be required to remove their shoes before entering the play area. Socks are required. This does not apply to children using Kids Zone (ages 5-11).
