At the Y, we understand a parents' need for a safe place for their children while you strive for a healthy lifestyle. Whether you're using our wellness center, taking a group exercise class, unwinding in the sauna or reading a book in the lobby, our well-trained Prime Time staff are here to provide a fun, safe environment for your children. For up to two and a half hours, the children on your Family membership, ages 6 weeks to 7 years, can play dress up, make arts and crafts, take part in a circle time and read stories with our staff- all for free, with the understanding that you must remain within the Y.

Please visit your branch page for hours (Hal Welsh East, Manlius, North Area Family, Northwest Family, Southwest).

Family Prime Time Plus

We also understand a parent's need to run errands, or go to personal appointments, without a little one at your side. Take advantage of Prime Time Plus and have a few hours to yourself while your child comes to play with his or her friends at the Y. Please send your children with sneakers, extra clothes and a healthy snack labeled with their name. There is an additional fee for this service.
