Child Minding

PlayTime is our free supervised child minding service, exclusive to all Alpine Health & Fitness members and available every weekday during the school term, but closed during school holidays and on public holidays.

PlayTime is available to children aged between 6 months to under 5 years, and is operated by local parents who supervise the children while you workout. Spaces are limited to 20 children per session, so advance bookings are recommended.  

PlayTime sessions are a maximum of two hours. The staff/child ratio is:

  • 1:3 under 1 year
  • 1:5 1-3 years
  • 1:10 3-5 years


Monday 9.00am - 12.00pm

Bookings for PlayTime sessions can only be made the day before by phoning Customer Services on 03 450 9117 or emailing If you are only able to leave a voicemail, be sure to leave your contact details (phone or email) so we can confirm a space is available. Please note that your booking is only confirmed if you speak to us or receive a response from us – purely leaving a voicemail or email is no guarantee that your child has been booked into PlayTime.
