Child Care

Child Watch

The YMCA provides child care services for members while they work out. You can feel confident knowing your child is safe participating in fun activities provided by a fully trained staff, in a clean, well-maintained environment. Children ages 4 years and older must be on a family membership. Childcare is included in Family Membership. Individual Membership Fees: $2.00 per hour per child. You may purchase either a $10.00 card that is good for 5 hours of nursery time in 15-minute increments or a $20.00 card that is good for 10 hours of nursery time in 15-minute increments. A $5.00 card is also available for guests visiting the YMCA and can only be used once for up to 2 hours. Child Watch cards may be purchased at the Member Services Desk.
