The JCA’s Kid Kare program is a FREE child care service to members that allows you to drop off your kids while you work out. Children between the ages of 3 months and 9 years are welcomed. Our child care services will ensure your children are safe and having fun while you are working out. The Kid Kare room is located to the┬áright of the Courtesy Desk when coming from the Vandroff Art Gallery hallway. We understand childcare is an obstacle that stops parents from coming to the gym, which is why we provide this childcare service for free to all of our members.
