When parents come to the Y for a class or workout, their kids need a safe, enriching environment where they can have fun and interact with other kids. In Child Watch, children ages 6 weeks to 10 years play under the supervision of caring, trained Y staff. At the same time, parents are able to relax, connect with other Y members, and enjoy healthy activities.

To ensure quality care, spaces are limited and cannot be guaranteed. Parents must stay in the building while their child is in Child Watch. Please contact the branch for questions.

Emily & Christopher, Parents
Child Watch gives Benji the opportunity to play and interact with a diverse group of kids. The staff is terrific and I love how they truly care about Benji and the rest of the kids.
