High 5

The Stanly County Family YMCA welcomes our members’ children, grades K-5th, to a special place just for them - High 5! We are conveniently located on the main floor across from the youth locker rooms.

We provide a secure, nurturing, comfortable, and attractive environment for MEMBERS’ children to meet and play with their “Y friends” while parents enjoy their time at the Y. Children will be offered homework supervision, free play, themed crafts, chapter books, games and gym, and always, a listening ear by caring staff.

Free of charge, High 5 is a benefit to your membership. Please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the following policies:

  1. High 5 is open to members’ children K-5th grades only (no exceptions for younger or older). Please be prepared to complete one registration card per child upon your first visit.
  2. Children can stay in High 5 up to two hours at a time.
  3. Please bring all necessary materials for your child’s homework if it’s to be done at High 5.
  4. LABEL EVERYTHING with first and last names. All unclaimed belongings will be donated to charity at the end of each month.
  5. Parents are welcome to accompany their children to the Youth Lobby to have a snack and/or beverage before, during, or after High 5 reservation time. Water is available for all children.
