Children's Sitting Service
- The Sitting Service Program is a “casual care” service and is NOT a State licensed day care.
- The service is free to parents/legal guardians only, who are utilizing the recreation facilities and amenities.
- Due to limited participation numbers established by state regulations, we offer this program to our patrons as a limited time sitting service, available on a first come, first served basis. This is not a guaranteed service to patrons and/or facility pass holders.

Children need to be picked up no later than 5 minutes after your class has ended or immediately following your workout and before the sitting service closes.
- Absolutely no sick children will be allowed in the sitting room. We strive to keep the Recreation Center a healthy and happy place. Please respect other children who are healthy by keeping your sick child at home.
- The Sitting Service Personnel will not administer any type of medication to a child under any circumstances. Please take care of this before they are brought into the Sitting Room.

If we have tried to console your child and he or she continues to cry for 10 minutes non-stop, you will be asked to come and console your child or remove him or her from the sitting service.
