Child Watch

Allow your child to explore, learn, and play with caring Y staff!

We provide free child watch for our younger members!  If your child is an active YMCA member, they can enjoy fun and engaging activities while you swim, workout or use our facility.

Parents should check with Child Watch to determine availability before dropping off their child. Space is allocated on a first-come, first-accepted basis. When the room is full, it may be necessary to wait until space is available. Child Watch may limit the number of children in the room for safety reasons.

Parents must remain on the Y premises while children are in the play area. There is a two-hour time limit per day. Bottles, diapers and baby wipes must be provided by the parent. Outside food may not be brought in to Child Watch.
