The Y's Child Watch facilities are able to care for children from six weeks to 12 years of age while you exercise. Child Watch services are available to those with a family membership to pursue their own health and well-being, knowing that their children are safe, secure, and cared for in a positive environment.
Participants must have a Family Information form on file before their first visit.
*Oneida- please see staff for form
All participants over the age of two must keep their shoes on during their stay.
All children are required to be signed in and out by a parent or guardian.
Each visit holds a two hour time limit.
Participants' behavior must follow the core values of the YMCA; honesty, respect, caring, and responsibility. They must be able to play appropriately with others and not jeopardize the well being and safety of others participants.
Please keep your children home if they seem listless, unusually irritable, complain of stomach, headache, earache, have a fever, or have stayed home from school due to illness. Must be fever and symptom free for over 24 hours to return.
Our staff will work with each family to help their child feel comfortable.
If a child cries inconsolably for over ten minutes, we will notify the parent and ask them to try again another day.
Parents and guardians must remain in the building at all times while their child is in the Child Watch Room. They must also be available at all times. Any guardian designated to stay on behalf of a parent must be over the age of 18 years old.
No food, drink, gum or candy allowed in the Child Watch Room, with the exception of bottles, water bottles, and non-spill sippy cups.
Child Watch Staff are not permitted to assist a child in the restroom or change soiled diapers. In the event that your child needs assistance during your visit to our YMCA, our staff will notify you.
The Y will not tolerate bullying of any kind.
