Kid’s Zone

WELCOME! Busy parents need support. When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can build healthy, trusting relationships with other kids and adults. At Kids Zone, children ages 6 weeks to 8 years old play and participate in group activities under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff while their parents relax, connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y.

Kids Zone is free of charge to children whose parents have a Family or Household Membership. Parents may leave their children in Kids Zone for a maximum of two hours per day and must REMAIN WITHIN the Jackson YMCA facility while their children are in Kids Zone. Others can pay a nominal fee to enjoy this convenient amenity. Read more in our Parent Handbook link on the right.
