Family YMCA of Black Hawk County


The Village Kids Adventure Center

The Village Kids Adventure Center – Child Watch Services:
We offer free drop-in child care for Family Membership holders. Playful, engaging options are plentiful for young children while you exercise or connect with others over shared interests. A parent/adult guardian MUST remain in the facility at all times.

6 weeks – 10 years

Day & Time:
Due to COVID-19 our hours have changed.  Kids adventure will be available by appointment Monday- Friday during the evening hours. Sign-up is below.

When you arrive:
Parents utilizing our services are asked to sign each child in.  You will receive a pager that will alert you if we need your attention in the center. We do not offer diapering services at this time.  If your child is not potty-trained, we will page you should there be an emergency.

3 Strike Policy:
Children who utilize our center will be supervised under the 3 strike system.  Each behavior resulting in a reprimand will be documented on our behavior log.  After 3 reprimands, the parent will be asked to remove their child.  Children who are removed from the center will not be allowed back until the following day.

We strive to maintain a safe and healthy environment.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have increased our sanitation protocols to protect all of our friends who play in the center.  A thorough cleaning will be performed prior to and after each hour time-slot.  While children are in the center, we ask that youths ages 2-10 wear a mask for their safety.  Please review our current COVID-19 policies prior to your first visit.


1 Family per available time-slot.
