Free Child Watch

While You Work Out

Child Watch offers a caring and safe program that is free to our members. We offer 2 hours of curriculum-based play and activities each day for your child/children. Children visiting Child Watch have the opportunity to participate in activities that help build a stronger spirit, mind and body.

Child Watch attendants are certified in CPR for the Professional Caregiver, AED Procedures for the Professional Caregiver, and First Aid Procedures. All skills are re-certified annually.

Important: Y Child Watch is available to YMCA members. Children may be dropped off and picked up by a parent or legal guardian. There is a maximum of two hours per day per child and parents must remain in the facility at all times. It is the policy of the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region that all children, including staff children, regardless of their age, must have their own Youth Membership or be part of a paid One-Adult Household, or Two-Adult Household in order to use the facility, including Child Watch, and/or register for programs at member rates.

Child Watch hours and ages vary by center. In order to ensure that every child has the best experience possible, the Y requests that children refrain from bringing electronic devices to Child Watch. This includes mp3 players, tablets, cell phones and portable games.
