Child Watch

Free with your Adult + Child or Household membership!

Our Child Watch gives you the opportunity to leave your children in a clean, caring, and safe environment while you work out. Child care providers will make your child's stay fun and entertaining. Parents/caregivers must remain in the facility while utilizing the Child Watch services and your child's visit is limited to 2 hours/day. Child Watch is designed for children ages 6 weeks to 7 years old. Older children are welcome, but please remember the environment is for younger children.


Child Watch Guidlines

As of June 15, 2020, our Child Watch service is free to Y members. The child must be a Y member (household, youth, or adult + child) to use Child Watch.

Healthy Environment

  • As in the past, if your child is demonstrating any signs of cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms please keep them home until they are symptom-free for at least 72 hours without the use of medication.
  • If a child begins showing any symptoms that are consistent with cold, flu, or COVID-19, the child will be isolated from the rest of the group and the parent/guardian will be contacted to pick the child up from Child Watch.

Reservations & Group Size

  • Child Watch is based on a first come, first serve basis.
  • Reservations are required ONLY for infants ages 6 weeks until stable walking. There will be 4 reservation slots available per hour for infants, with up to two hours per day in Child Watch.
