J Care Policies:

To use our childcare service, caregivers must be JCC members and must remain in the building while their child is at J Care. A specific location must be listed on the childcare check-in/check-out sheet. If the caregiver's location has changed, the sitters must be notified at extension 457 via a house phone or 617.558.6457.

  • Availability is subject to capacity.
  • When entering the childcare room, please see one of the staff to check your child in, to verify your workout location, put a name tag on your child, and receive any last minute instructions. You will also be required to sign your child out at pick-up.
  • You are encouraged to bring a drink or a snack for your child. We do not supply snacks.
  • Please make sure your child has a clean diaper before entering the childcare room.
  • If a baby/child needs a diaper change, a bottle or is crying and upset, we will locate the caregiver to come and take care of their child’s specific needs.
