Play. Every Day
Take time to take care of yourself while we take care of your little ones.
To make it easy for you, our branches offer FREE child care so your child can have fun at the Y while you enjoy your workout in our facilities. Children are able to be active and engaged at our Child Watch centers, socializing with others and exploring new things while they are supervised by trained Y staff. Kids have fun with creative activities such as arts and crafts or story time, or enjoy some active play time.
Child watch is available to members on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents are required to remain within the YMCA premises and there is a two hour per day, per child limit.
