Strengthening our Community Through Youth Development

At the Y we want to nurture the potential of every child. We are here to create opportunities for children to learn, grow & thrive!

Child Watch

Leave the little ones with us while you’re working up a sweat. Enjoy your workout while your child plays indoors and outdoors and makes new friends under the supervision of well trained, quality childcare staff. With play structures, arts & crafts, books, toys, and plenty of inspired programming, it’s a pint-sized haven of well-being.


Monday, Wednesday, Friday | 8am-11:45am

Child Watch is not offered mid June through August

As we grow our team, we will have limited hours with the goal of expanding in the near future.

transitional orientation plan

There is a transitional orientation plan when your child starts Child Watch to helps them adjust to the room and staff, with the goal of building up to an hour and a half visit.

Children 6 months to 1 year
1st visit – 30 minutes

Children 1 year – 4 years
1st visit – 45 minutes

Children 4 years – 10 years
1st visit – 60 minutes In all cases, subsequent visits will increase by 15-minute increments provided the child is adjusting well.

The following guidelines have been established to provide a safe, happy, and healthy environment for all children

  • The Child Watch room is open to children 6 months through 12 years of age on a family membership.
  • Your child can play and have fun for up to an hour and a half while you work out! In order to accommodate all of our members, this time limit may be reduced during peak hours.
  • We ask that all children be signed in and out by parents/guardians.
  • Please have your membership card and/or number present when you drop your child off.
  • Parents/guardians must remain on the YMCA premises while children are in Child Watch.
  • Child Watch promotes healthy habits and is a “water only” area. To ensure cleanliness, it is a food and drink free zone.
  • Please bring infants in their infant seats and label all pacifiers, car seats, etc. with the child’s and parent’s name.

  • To ensure that the child to staff ratio remains within a safe range, we may limit the number of children in Child Watch.
  • Parents/guardians are responsible for toileting/diapering children. Please come to the Child Watch room promptly if such attention is needed.
  • To protect the health of both children and staff, any child who does not appear to be healthy will not be admitted.
  • When a parent/guardian is needed, please respond quickly.
  • Parents/guardians will be contacted if their child has been crying or visibly upset for 15 minutes. If a child is having behavioral problems, the parent/guardian will be contacted. For the protection of all children, inappropriate or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated and service will be discontinued.
  • Child Watch is loaded with fun toys and games so no need to bring anything from home, we have you covered!
