The top 10 gyms with childcare in Toronto
Getting to the gym can be challenging on most days, especially as a parent. Luckily, some gyms offer daycare and child-minding services for members, as well as special activities and events for the little ones.
Here are my picks for the top gyms with childcare in Toronto.
There’s no shortage of Goodlife gyms in the city, and the Liberty Village location is amongst one of many locations in Toronto that offer the JUMP! Child care program. You can pay per drop-in, or add on to your regular membership. Available to kids six-weeks to 12-years-old.
Toronto's largest YMCA offers child care services with licensed programs like Early Learning and Care for 0 to three-year-olds, and the Before and After School care for children four to 12-years-old.
