Your workout should be stress free. That’s why we provide free childcare services for our members while they’re here. The kids get to have fun while you get to sweat it out. Now that’s a good deal.

ChildWatch is a free childcare service at the Y that allows parents and caregivers to take the time they need for a little self-care.

We all know it’s important to make time for healthy physical activity. But for the caregiver of a young child that’s a lot easier said than done.

That’s why we offer our members the opportunity to leave their littles with us while they get their workout in. Our ChildWatch room is filled with toys, puzzles, board games, storybooks and more to keep them busy. And our caring and attentive staff will provide expert supervision and engagement for your child to make sure they have fun.
