The perfect balance.

Our babysitting program makes it easy for you to balance being a busy parent with being an active member of the J. Babysitting is open to members Sunday – Friday from 9 AM – Noon (Sept – May) and Monday – Friday 9 AM – Noon (June – Aug) for children 8 weeks to 6 years old.

Reserved babysitting will be moving to Room 119, located in the Early Childhood Wing on May, 1.

To make a reservation, call the Front Desk at 651-698-0751 up to 48 hours in advance. Although same-day reservations may be available, prior reservations are strongly recommended and are on a first-come, first served basis; unfortunately, we can’t take drop-ins.

If you need to cancel, please call the Front Desk at 651-698-0751 and let them know so that another child can fill the open spot.


Additional babysitting information:
  • Parents must remain in the building for the duration of the child’s babysitting session.
  • There is a two-hour babysitting limit per day.
  • Please supply and label all items that your child may need during their stay (diapers, wipes, extra clothes, bottles, sippy cups, snacks, etc).
  • Please keep your child home if they have a fever or do not feel well.
  • Our babysitters cannot administer medication to your child.
  • If your child cries for more than 15 minutes and cannot be comforted, you will be asked to pick them up.
  • Please be punctual; coming early or leaving late can put us over-ratio, and we want to be able to meet the needs of all of our kids!
  • We are a peanut/tree nut free environment.
