The YMCA, Changing Lives for the Better

Y Child Watch



Child Watch is on-site child care for members and guests using the Y. Because we recognize that exercising regularly is easier said than done when you have small children, we are proud to offer quality drop-in care at both locations. Child Watch is a fun and safe place for children to play while moms and dads enjoy the YMCA. Service is available during most fitness classes. Fees are based on the membership status of the adult.


Child Watch is a service provided to YMCA members.  
Available for newborns to 7-year-olds.
