Who Can Participate in Mom's Day Out / Parent's Night Out Programs?

The Greater Wichita YMCA Mom's Day Out program is for the entire community - not just YMCA members.

How Much Does it Cost to Participate in the Mom's Day Out Program?

As with all programs and activities, the Greater Wichita YMCA welcomes community (non-member) participation but pricing is set based on membership status. 

Prices can vary per location but typically run $48 for a 4 hour day or $58 for a 5 hour day.

Want to save on Mom’s Day Out? Consider joining the YMCA. Income-based financial assistance and more benefits available.

What Are the Requirements for Participation?

All Mom's Day Out participants must meet, agree to, and observe our membership policies or Guest Pass policies, and our facilities usage policies. Failure to do so could result in immediate suspension from participation. 

What Does My Child Need to Participate?

Children should arrive in comfortable, play-appropriate clothing and sneakers and a sweatshirt or light jacket for outside activities (fall and spring). They should also bring:

  • Swimsuit, towel and sunscreen (if you would like your child to swim/participate in water activities)
  • Beverage and an appropriate, sealable water bottle
  • A bagged lunch (for full-day Mom's Day Out)
  • Children must be potty-trained to swim. Non-swimmers will have a separate activity. South YMCA does not offer swimming.

We encourage all children (including siblings) to have their own bags and supplies. Additional personal items should not be brought - the Greater Wichita YMCA nor its staff are responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen items.

What should my child wear?

Dress your child in comfortable and appropriate play clothes.

What activities are included?

Your child will enjoy swimming, arts and crafts, stories, creative play, tumbling and gym time, outdoor activities, calendar time, and snack time—all while making new friends!

Note: Children 2 yrs of age are allowed to swim only subject to parent’s approval.

Swimming All Mom’s Day Out classes swim in the shallow end of our indoor and outdoor pools. If you are uncomfortable having your child swim, please notify the instructor and our staff will accommodate.
