Child Watch and Youth Watch
Child Care While You Workout
The Y knows the value of having time for yourself – time to work on your personal health and well-being, time to socialize with others, and time to concentrate on yourself so you can go home relaxed and ready to spend time with your family and be the best parent possible.
With your family membership at the YMCA, you are entitled to FREE Child Watch (ages 6 weeks to 5 years) and Youth Watch (ages 6 to 12 years) services while you are at the Y participating in our programs. Our qualified staff and volunteers provide a safe and fun atmosphere for your child with age-appropriate toys, games and activities and even homework time for school-aged kids. Parents are required to sign the child in/out and to fill out an information form to be kept on file.
