Kids Corner

HOURS:  Monday-Thursday 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM
Friday 8:00-1:45 PM
Saturday 7:45 AM to 1:15 PM

For us to offer Kid’s Corner (according to the COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Guidance: Requirements for Gyms, Studios and Fitness Centers), we have to run Kid’s Corner as a program. This means our members will need to make a reservation for their kiddos to attend Kid’s Corner.  We can offer reservations up to 8 kiddos.
The reservations have been broken down to one hour and forty-five minute increments. This 15-minute break between each scheduled reservation time for staff to sanitize between family usage and take a bathroom break or eat, if needed.  There is an overlap in the afternoon due to the high traffic we have been having in the facility at this time, to accommodate classes and family who will be participating in swim lessons.
Reservations will be:
  • Monday-Thursday  8:00-9:45 AM, 10:00-11:45 AM, 12:00-1:45 PM, 2:00-3:45 PM, 4:00-5:45 PM and 5:15-7:00 PM
  • Friday  8:00-9:45 AM and 10:00-11:45 AM
  • Saturday  7:45-9:45 AM and 10:00-11:45 AM  (Due to Group Fitness Schedule, there can be overlap on this day)
We are asking parents/guardians to save the Kids Corner direct line. This will be the primary notification to parents of their child’s needs or care. Staff will only contact to parent/guardian, if a parent needs to come pick up an inconsolable child, a diaper change or an accident becomes too difficult and the staff member is unable to attend to the child solely for clean-up efforts, or an injury of a child occurs and the parent needs to be alerted.

*To adhere to the Face Covering Requirements and Recommendations under Executive Order 20 81, by Governor Walz, our mask policies have been updated as followed–In Kids Corner, children age 6 and over are required to wear a mask while in Kids Corner, inside the building or where a person is unable to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Children age 5 and under are not required, but highly recommended. The Emergency Executive Order applies to all Minnesotans, making exceptions for children who are five-years-old and under, and those with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that makes it unreasonable for the individual to maintain a face covering.

General Guidelines:

  • A child can only be registered for one time-block (1 Hour and 45 min) per day
  • Parents/Guardians are not allowed past the Kid’s Corner check-in point
  • Temperatures will be taken upon entry into Kid’s Corner
  • Children will wash their hands upon entering Kids Corner and regularly/as needed throughout their stay
  • If staff feel your child is not well, your child will not be allowed in Kid Corner and you will be asked to take them home
  • Kid’s Corner will close periodically after each time-block for toys to be properly sanitized
  • Additional cleaning procedures will take place on off-hours
  • There will not be a snack time offered during your child’s stay. Please feed your infant/child before arriving for your registered time
  • Children ages 6 and older will be required to wear a face mask during their time in Kids Corner
  • No outside toys from home will be allowed
  • No diaper changes will take place during this time
