As moms, we struggle with the guilt of spending enough time with our children. But we also need time for ourselves as well.
What if there was a community that you could be a part where you could have both? Mommy and Me time plus Mommy Time!
The YMCA of South Palm Beach County is a great place to start. This community offers mommy and me style classes, child care, amazing exercise programs for moms plus an opportunity to meet other moms like yourself.
Here are 5 reasons why you and your child will love the YMCA.
1. Child Watch Center
Where can you find a place that you can leave your child for two hours in a safe environment and go do something for yourself?
If you didn’t know the YMCA has a Child Watch Center, where your children can play, explore and learn. The experienced, caring Y staff provides learning experiences in a fun environment.
Each staff member is trained to teach your child fine and gross motor skills, socialization and how to make healthy choices. All members of the Child Development staff are background checked and hold CPR/First Aid certification.
Children 6 weeks to 11 years old are allowed up to two hours a day.
Knowing your child is not permitted in exercise classes or to be left alone anywhere in the building will give you peace of mind. As parents must remain in the building, here is your chance to read a book, enjoy a cup of coffee or go for that workout class.
2. Create Your Y Mom Tribe
Are you looking for your mom tribe? Maybe, someone, you can meet-up with and work out. Or just relax and share stories of motherhood. The Y Mom tribe was created just for that.
3. MOMMY AND ME TIME
I get asked all the time for Mommy and Me classes. The YMCA of South Plam Beach County offers that.
The Movers and Shakers program for ages one and two is the perfect Mommy and Me class for you and your little one. Parents and children participate in various activities. The program includes physical, social and emotional development through art, movement education and early literacy.
When your little one is ready to be on their own, the Y’s Little Owls for ages three and four is the next step. This program is perfect for your child to have social opportunities with age-appropriate children.
4. SWIMMING TOGETHER
Teaching your baby to love water is such a bonding experience. The YMCA offers Aquatics Classes for Parent and Child. This parent and child participation class is offered for ages six months to thirty-six months old.
The parent and child swim class focuses on safe water exploration, proper holding and towing techniques, safe water entry and exit, with instructor-led songs and games. Don’t forget that all children are required to wear swim pants in the water.
5. Refer A Mom Friend
Wouldn’t it be great to phone your mom friend to meet-up? When you “Share the Love” and refer a friend to become a member of the Y of South Palm Beach County in July, YOU get rewarded a FREE MONTH of membership after they complete 60 days as a member and your friend receives 50% off their join fee!
There’s no limit to the number of referrals, so the more you share, the more chances you have to save! Build Your Tribe TODAY!!
