'Work out' childcare

Sometimes you need to “work out” childcare arrangements, and sometimes you just need childcare while you work out! JCC Hourly Childcare has got you covered.

Our Hourly Childcare suite is a warm and inviting space adjacent to the general and premium locker rooms. This space includes a quiet room for the littlest babies, an art space, an imaginary play area, and snack tables.

Parents can take a free group exercise class, schedule a session with a personal trainer, or take a Pilates, yoga, or small group training class knowing that their children are having fun and enjoying their own time at the J.

At this time, Hourly Childcare will be open 7 days a week with daily hours corresponding with our most popular fitness class offerings:
7 Days a week • 8:00 – 11:00 AM
