Work out in a worry-free environment with care your kids will love – and a month filled with activities at GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness.

“We offer parents two hours to go and work out while your kids have a great time and stay active themselves,” said Lisa Rappana, GreatLIFE’s child care lead.

From 3-month-olds through 12-year-olds, kids are engaged in tons of activities.

“We play board and card games, do art projects and have buckets of different toys to play with,” Rappana said. “When we have older kids, we bring them to our ‘Rockroom,’ where we play football, kickball, dodgeball and all sorts of other games.”

Child care is included with any membership that includes a child and is offered at:

Performance Center

Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to noon and 4 to 7 p.m.

Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon.


Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m.

Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon.

Kids generally begin arriving at 8 a.m., and while some immediately go to their favorite toys and others want to do puzzles, color or read books, there are arts and crafts going the whole time it’s open.

“We take each child’s individual needs and work with them. Our mission is to make a difference in people’s lives, and that especially includes the children who are part of GreatLIFE,” Rappana said.

“I feel the team members are here for the right reason: the kids. Sometimes, I sit back and think how lucky these kids are to have these amazing people in their lives. I think each and every one of the team members have their own individual strengths they bring to the table.”

Whether your kids are regular fans of GreatLIFE child care or you’re checking it out for the first time, February is the perfect time to stop by. Here’s what’s coming up: 

Crafts of the week

New projects start every Monday at both locations.

“Kids are here two hours, so we make sure the craft won’t take too long,” Rappana said. “We usually do themes, so expect lots of heart-related crafts in February, and in March we’ll be all about St. Patrick’s Day.”


GreatLIFE’s Play EVERYTHING program is a great introduction to sports skills. Child care attendees can attend an hourlong version at 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays. On Feb. 1 and 15, it’s at Performance Center, and Feb. 8 and 22, it’s at Woodlake. 

Feb. 14: Cookie decorating

“We do one special project each month, and this month is cookie decorating,” Rappana said. “We supply the cookies, frosting and all the decorating tools.”

The project will be Feb. 14 from 9 to 11 a.m. and 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Performance Center.

PJ & Movie Day and Night

Movies will be shown during the day and in the evening Feb. 16 at Woodlake and Feb. 23 at Performance Center.

“Kids get to wear PJs, and they can bring pillows and blankets and a special stuffed animal,” Rappana said. “And this is the one time we offer food, so there will be puffy popcorn and juice.”
