When parents come to the Y for a class, group activity or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can have fun and interact with other kids . At Kid Zone, children play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff. At the same time, their parents are able to relax, connect with other Y members and enjoy healthy activities at the Y. We offer drop-in child care for kids ages 6 weeks to 10 years at three of our Milwaukee Y Centers, the Downtown YMCA, Northside YMCA and Rite-Hite YMCA. Contact one of our Centers for questions.

Emily & Christopher, Kid Zone Parents
Kid Zone gives Benji the opportunity to play and interact with a diverse group of kids. The staff is terrific and I love how they truly care about Benji and the rest of the kids.
