At the Y, we understand a parents' need for a safe place for their children while you strive for a healthy lifestyle. Whether you're using our wellness center, taking a group exercise class, unwinding in the sauna or reading a book in the lobby, our well-trained Child Watch staff are here to provide a fun, safe environment for your children. For up to two hours, the children on your Family membership, ages 6 weeks to 11 years, can play dress up, make arts and crafts, take part in a circle time and read stories with our staff- all for free, with the understanding that you must remain within the Y.

Family Child Watch Plus
We also understand a parent's need to run errands, or go to personal appointments, without a little one at your side. Take advantage of Child Watch Plus and have a few hours to yourself while your child comes to play with his or her friends at the Y. Please send your children with sneakers, extra clothes and a healthy snack labeled with their name. There is an additional fee for this service.
