We know it's hard to find time for yourself when you're a busy parent - especially in this unprecedented time. That's why the Y provides child watch as a free benefit of your family membership at one of our Family branches. You can bring your child in to engage in fun and healthy age-appropriate activities while you work out, take a group exercise class, or swim laps.

At this time, we are offering child watch for children ages 1-12*, since we are not able to social distance easily with infants. Child watch is available on a limited basis Monday-Saturday and up to 2 hours per child, per day. Parents need to bring their ID to check-in, so reservations can be verified on the roster.

*Prisma Health Family YMCA now offers child watch for infants, beginning at 6 weeks of age (morning child watch sessions only). 
*Eastside Family YMCA now offers limited spaces for infants, beginning at 3 months of age.

Space is limited to comply with state and CDC recommendations, so please use this reservation system to ensure your child is on the roster before you arrive. Please refrain from bringing personal items to child watch.
