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!

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!

April Schedule

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!
