Wellness for the whole family is the primary focus of our Drop-In Child Care Center. The nurturing and energetic staff provides parents with the peace of mind to enjoy the Y facilities, knowing that their children will be able to enjoy a variety of play, social and physical activities.
This child care service is available on a “non-scheduled” basis or “drop-in”. It is to be used while parents are in the Y facility. There is a two-hour time limit per day. Respecting this limit as well as closing times is appreciated. Parents may bring a snack for their child, but the Y cannot provide food storage. Please bring snacks labeled, in a non-breakable, spill-proof container. Parents are required to sign their child in and out. A child may only be dropped off or picked up by their parent unless prior written notice is given.
The staff reserves the right to turn away a child who is overly aggressive or appears ill. A positive, re-direct approach will be used for inappropriate behavior. We will come to get you if your child cries for more than ten consecutive minutes. Although this may interfere with your workout, we want a positive experience for all children in the Drop-In Center.
Parents need to:
· Provide up-to-date immunization (prior to first visit). This can be faxed to the Y at (307)672-7263; Attn: Drop-in.
· Complete history form prior to first visit.
· Provide diapers, wet wipes, and change of clothes for every visit. Pull-ups are recommended if child is not completely potty-trained.
