Kids & Families

Kids help put the "family" in Family Centers. We have programs and classes for kids as young as 3 years, and lots of activities for kids and young adults. Child care is available for infants to age 8.  

Child care

Childcare services reopen Monday, Nov. 2, at the Park Board's three family centers.

Reservations are now required for childcare at Chesterfield, Dan Kinney and Doling family centers. Kids ages 3 months to 8 years may be registered for childcare, offered free of charge for members (an additional $3 for paying guests) for up to 2-hour intervals. Capacity is limited. Parents must remain in the building at all times while their kids are in childcare. Numerous COVID-19 prevention measures are in place. Read more about childcare operations.

The child care area is for your convenience, while you have a great workout or attend your class. We provide an atmosphere of fun with a focus on harmony among the participants.
