Our Child Care Services


Prioritize Self-Care as Your Kids Enjoy Playtime at the Y! 

Onsite childcare! FREE while you workout or relax at our facilities!

We understand the importance of your well-being. With our Single Adult Family or Family Membership, your child (ages 6 months – 8 years) can delight in our engaging Learn & Play spaces while you focus on your workout at our facilities. Our trained Y staff supervises children, facilitating active and explorative experiences, from arts and crafts to interactive play and story time. Learn & Play operates on a first-come, first-served basis for members, allowing kids to socialize and learn in a safe environment while you stay on-site. Please note there’s a two-hour daily limit per child, and parents must remain within YMCA premises.

Important: Y Learn & Play is available to YMCA facility members only. It is the policy of the YMCA of Southern Arizona that all children must be part of a paid Single Parent Family or Family membership in order to use Learn & Play.Children may be dropped off and picked up by a parent or legal guardian. There is a maximum of two hours per day per child and parents must remain in the facility at all times.
