As we continue to add to the services available to members at the Y, Child Watch is the next service that has opened ane expanded. Child Watch will be operating with an appointment system and updated guidelines.

Child Watch will take place in the Child Watch Room and Multi-Purpose Room. Child Watch is available for children 6 weeks of age to 7 years of age. Each child will be screened at the door with preliminary COVID-19 questions and will have their temperature taken. There will be a one hour maximum per child and children will need to be assisted by a parent or legal guardian for bathroom breaks. Every 30 minutes every child aged 2 and older in Child Watch will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer.

It is recommended that children aged 2 and over to wear masks while in Child Watch when not in active play. The only two items they will need will be a mask and a water bottle with your child’s name on it. Please be sure to have a COVID waiver on file for your child completed before you drop your child off. You can do this at the front desk or at www.henrycountyymca.org/whats-new/find-waivers-here
