Child Watch

YMCA Kids Zone

The Lima Family YMCA Kids Zone is a babysitting service available for children ages 6 weeks to 7 years of age while their parents are using the facility. Parents must remain on-site while their children are in our care. Our purpose is to provide our youngest members with an interactive and developmentally appropriate learning environment while you enjoy an invigorating workout or period of relaxation. Your child will be cared for by loving, experienced staff in a nurturing environment. Children are limited to 2 1/2 hours per stay in Kid Zone. Babysitting is free to members while they are working out. Fees apply to Non-member program participants.
