Free Drop-In Child Care

For Parents Getting Vaccines in June

If you're headed to a vaccine appointment, you can drop your kids off for free childcare. This is available on a drop-in basis, from June 1 to July 3rd, 2021 during Kids Zone (Child Watch) hours.

The Greater Naples YMCA and YMCA of South Collier are helping to remove a barrier for parents yet to be vaccinated by offering free, drop-in childcare during vaccination appointments in June. Parents can place their children, ages 6 months to 12 years, in the Child Watch program during available hours (see below) at either branch.

*Parents will be required to sign a childcare waiver.

*Vaccine appointment verification required.
