Children ages 6 weeks to 10 years can enjoy fun and games in our Child Watch room while parents work out at the Waldron. Play at our train table, with our many different toys and games, or enjoy Story Time and Craft Time!
During warm months, we may even walk around the center to the outdoor playground, if parents permit. Our Child Watch staffers are dedicated to providing a safe and fun environment for member families; background checks and Infant/Child CPR & AED certification are required for all Waldron staff.
Child Watch Policies
Please observe the following policies:
- USAGE: Children can only be left by a responsible parent/guardian who is a member of the Waldron Wellness Center, and only during CW hours while that parent/guardian is using the Waldron Wellness Center.
- BEHAVIOR: Children are not to run, scream, yell, hit, push or otherwise be disruptive in CW. If a child does not adhere to these policies, we may call upon the parent/guardian to come talk to the child, and if behavior doesn't improve, we reserve the right to ask the responsible adult to remove the child from CW, and we reserve the right to withdraw CW privileges for extended amounts of time if necessary.
- ILLNESS: Please do not bring your child into CW if they've had any of the following within the last 48 hours: Fever, diarrhea, vomiting/nausea, excessive coughing, pink eye, green mucus from nose, or rashes. We reserve the right to refuse any child that is suspected of illness in order to protect other children, our members and staff.
- SAFETY POLICIES: The CW Emergency Form must be completed and on file before you may leave a child in CW. Because this form contains vital health information, this policy will be strictly adhered to. In case of an emergency, a staff member will notify you immediately. The CW staff is certified in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid, and all staff members undergo criminal background checks; security cameras record activities in CW.
Please feel free to ask our front desk or our manager if you have any concerns or questions with these policies. Thank you for helping us to make the Waldron a safe, healthy place for ALL our members!

Chill Zone Policies
Family membership is required for use of the Chill Zone.
Chill Zone Citizens may play video games or use a personal device with earbuds (for audible games). Citizens may read our books, but please return them to the shelf. Bring your own homework or books, or use our art supplies or crafts. Please clean up after yourself and leave the room nice for the next people who use it.
Note to Parents
Waldron Wellness Center reserves the right to remove any child who is not cooperating with others or with staff in the Chill Zone. No Wellness Staff are stationed in the Chill Zone. Encourage your children to play or read quietly while in the Chill Zone.
