Kid Central

Gym with Childcare in Portland, Oregon

Welcome To Kid Central at Bethany Athletic Club

A safe, social, and enriching environment for kids to have fun and stay active.

With plenty of toys, games, and activities, Kid Central is the perfect childcare option for your child to have fun while you take some time to care for your health.

What is Kid Central?

Kid Central is a childcare option at Bethany Athletic Club where kids ages 6 weeks old to 8 years old can come and play while their parents work out in our gym! We offer up to 3 hours per day of childcare to allow parents to utilize our club.

Parents can use that time to attend a group fitness class, lap swim, train with a personal trainer, or use one of our many other club amenities and fitness programs.

*Please note that parents must be on-site while their children are in Kid Central.
