YMCA/Proctors to Offer Childcare During Performances
Parents and guardians who love theatre – but cannot attend events as often as they might like because of babysitting issues – can avail themselves to a new program that offers a convenient, affordable, safe solution: YMCA Parents Time Out, an innovative program made possible by Proctors and the Schenectady YMCA.
"This is something that our patrons have asked for," said Proctors CEO Philip Morris. "Because of the innate sensitivities and security issues, we have moved with deliberation before adopting a program. Our positive relationship with the Schenectady YMCA made the launch of this program feasible. For Proctors, the program is another example of the community spirit and teamwork that are the hallmarks of a new, revitalized and forward-thinking Downtown Schenectady."
Through YMCA Parents Time Out, parents can sign up for child care at the new Downtown YMCA while they attend a performance at Proctors State Street complex. When purchasing tickets, patrons have the option, for an additional fee per child, to complete appropriate paperwork and sign up for the program. Then before the show, participants in the YMCA Parents Time Out program may drop off children registered in the YMCA Parents Time Out program at the YMCA just cross the street to Proctors.
YMCA Parents Time Out participants have the peace of mind knowing that their your kids are having fun of their own, playing games, watching movies and having a ball.
All care providers are NYS certified professionals in age appropriate training in CPR and First Aid. s are in good hands.
Now the whole family gets to enjoy nights out at Proctors. Cost of this program is $15 with a sibling discount of 15%.
