Babysitting Service

It can be hard to find time to stay healthy and fit when you are responsible for caring for young children.

We can help! Our Babysitting Service– available to both members and non-members — lets you participate in a group fitness class, a swim, an individual workout or a visit with fellow members at the Y while we watch your children.

Our Babysitting Service features:

  • a fun, safe, and secure environment where your children can have fun while you exercise;
  • facilities to care for children from 3 months to 12 years of age
  • well-trained staff, volunteers, and supervisors certified in First Aid and CPR.
  • Stay for an hour or stay for the full 3 hours!  One flat-rate is all you’ll pay.


When: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

Time:  9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Where: Elmwood-Kildonan and West Portage branch locations

Pricing:  $5 per child  (Members & Non-members)


How to register your child(ren):

Registration for space will open 48 hours in advance (ie: Monday spots will open for registration Saturdays at 9am). Please ensure the child’s name is on your account.  Payment will be taken at time of registration. Please note, there will be no refunds issued.

Not comfortable registering online? No problem!  Registration can also be done through our Membership Sales & Experience team at the front desk.

Life can be busy, we get it!  If you didn’t get a chance to pre-register, we will happily accept drop-ins should space* allow.




IMPORTANT: Parent/guardian must remain in the facility at all times while child is attending our Babysitting Service
