Let us watch your children while you enjoy a great Y workout. Our child watch areas offer drop-in, short-term child care so you can enjoy your Y visit and work out with a peaceful mind.

A few reminders about potty training:
For the health and well being of all the children, sick children are not allowed in the child watch room and we reserve the right to turn away any child whom has questionable health. In the babysitting room we do not administer any medicine. Please notify the babysitting room if your child has come down with a contagious disease so that we may alert other members.
Children should be kept home if they have any of the following symptoms:
Our child watch room has a fifteen-minute crying policy. If a child is crying for more than fifteen minutes the staff will find you in the location you indicated when you signed in to come back to the room. We will do our best to calm and redirect the child. We have found that after fifteen minutes a child who does not stop crying has hit a high anxiety level and really would just like his/her parent or caregiver.
We strive to provide a safe, enriching environment for everyone. Cooperative behavior is expected. If a child is misbehaving, staff will redirect the child. Staff will try several alternatives. If inappropriate behavior continues or a child presents a risk to other children, the parent will be asked to remove the child for the rest of the day. Behavior such as spitting, biting, inappropriate language, harm to self, harm to others or damage to toys may lead to a loss of child watch privileges for your child.
