Did you know about this very useful service that the Family Y provides parents of young children who work out or take a fitness class or otherwise spend time at the Y?
Babysitting is available for children 3 months to 6 years of age, free of charge for Y members and only $10 for non-members per child ($5 for each additional child). The available times are Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 1 pm and Saturday mornings from 8 to 11 am.
On weekdays, our Miss Hilda Blake-Johnson always gives loving attention and lots of smiles to the tots whose parents work out here. For children entering her classroom, Miss Hilda’s “room on the landing” provides lots of fun distractions from 8-11am each week day. With many learning and actions toys for kids 3 months to 6 years old, most children don’t even miss their parents!
Please call ahead to check availability 203-226-8981, ext. 132. Parents must remain in the building at all times. And to maintain a safe environment, we can care for no more than four children at a time when any children are under age 3. And please be aware that drop-in service is on a space available basis only.
Miss Hilda has years of experience with young children and a boatload of patience to match. Our members love her and so do their children!
