Our Babysitting Service is available to both members and visiting non-members to make it easier for parents to join us for a group fitness class, a swim, an individual workout or any activities at the Y.


    Babysitting at the Y

    Babysitting is offered at a flat rate of $5 per child for both member and non-member families. Enjoy care for up to three hours for children 3 months to 12 years old while using the facility. Kids will have fun playing while you exercise, and parents can enjoy peace of mind knowing their children are in a safe environment. Our well-trained staff, volunteers and supervisors are certified in First Aid and CPR.

      How to Register

      Register online or with our Membership Sales & Experience team at the front desk starting 48 hours in advance of your booking time. Please ensure each child’s name is on your account prior to registering your first time. Non-refundable payment is required to complete your registration. If you didn’t get a chance to pre-register, we will happily accept drop-ins should space allow. Care is currently available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at our Elmwood-Kildonan and West Portage branch locations.
