Notes about Child Watch
For the safety and well being of all children, the maximum time allowed for a child to stay in Child Watch is 2 hours.
Capacity of 20 Children
Our child watch has a capacity of 20 children, and we do get full sometimes. The child watch staff will stop accepting children when they reach the allowed capacity of 20 children. It is strongly recommended that you reserve a spot for your child.
We ask all parents to be mindful of bringing sick children to the Y. For the safety of all children in our care, the Child Watch teams do have the right to ask you not to leave your child if they are obviously sick.
