Stay & Play

Beginning July 6, Stay & Play will reopen with modified hours and limited capacity. Here is the information our families need to know before bringing their children to the YMCA:

Tuesday and Thursday:  8:30-11am and 4-7pm

Saturday: 8:30-11am

Reservations: The space in Stay & Play is currently limited to 3 children at one time. With this in mind, we are requiring families make a reservation before bringing their child(ren) to the YMCA. Please call the Y at (757) 336-6266 to reserve a space no later than 24 hours in advance. Stay & Play reservations are based on a 2-hour time limit. 

Ages: At this time, we are requesting any child coming to the YMCA Stay & Play be at least 3 years of age.

Masks: Masks are not required for children 9 years of age and under. Parents must wear their masks at all times while in the Stay & Play room during the check-in and check-out procedures.

Personal Items: We ask that children do not bring in any personal play items from home.

 We are requiring that all children follow the social distancing rule while in the center. As we understand this may be hard for young children to understand, families can help prepare their children for our new procedures prior to arriving at the YMCA. Please explain to children that they will need to maintain their distance from other children not in their family unit while at the YMCA.
